Carbon Triathlon Bike

Purchasing a triathlon or time trial bike can be a perplexing activity. In case if you do not possess knowledge of bike technology then you are easy to be mislaid with details. These details will be in the form of group-sets, chain-sets, and wheelsets. Triathlons come in several shapes and sizes. For instance, sportive is a non-competition adaption so you can enjoy the ride and gain through its experience.
Triathlon bikes are liberated from guidelines that administer bike designs for road racing. Engineers are receptive to explore radical shapes and designs aimed at cheating the wind. Moreover, the bike should be able to carry a sumptuous amount of water and nutrition. The crucial driving factor is aero. Some of the bike's appearance is exotic and stylish.
The International triathlon is for 49 miles, long triathlon covers 49 miles and Ironman 112 miles. Thus, the rider spends hours on the bike. That is why aerodynamics is important for comfort nutrition and hydration. Riders go in for bike that has integrated space for storage of water bottles and eatables for easy availability.
Committed triathlon bikes mostly have steeper seat tube angle. This thrusts the hips forward and generates less stress to quadriceps and hamstrings when on the run. Triathlon is a costly sport because there is no viable low-end market for bikes. A biker, in the long run, will be paying for

A group-set includes all the segments that make it move as well as stop. Thus, it all the machinery that converts the kinetic energy produced by the rider's legs and body for forwarding momentum. The attachments like brakes crank-set, the brackets, shifters chain rear cassette and derailleurs are included under this category. The aero frame technology stands for aerodynamic on which the frame is geared to function.
The wheelset is pivotal in deciding about the setup. These are constructed from different materials. Carbon Triathlon Bike wheelset is light and makes the bike lighter totally. It has a lightweight carbon frame, aero tube shaping and carbon wheels. These bikes are not difficult to dismantle and by doing this can be changed into road bikes relatively stating. Carbon fibre has good strength and is affordable. Other properties include firmness, conducive to electricity and are corrosion and heat resistant. It is versatile as can be combined with plastic, metals, wood, and concrete. The carbon fibre can be dyed, treated, and developed according to the need of the application. Many racers prefer higher-end race wheelset, so they make the most of it on the race day. In a race, the bike can make a big difference. The race enthusiasts know every second matter in a race.
The full carbon frameset generates minimum aerodynamic friction. Carbon fibre wheels increase aerodynamics. The carbon fibre absorbs road vibrations and long racers ride in comfort. Even high-level triathletes can use it for a prolonged time. How your aero position on the bike rests is as important as the bike you use. So, the bike fit must be inspected before purchase. A carbon fibre frame lasts a lifetime.

Graphic Design Tip: How to Brainstorm an Effective Logo
Before I started going to art school, my parents (as a lot of parents do) really overestimated my own abilities. During my high school years, they launched their own non-profit organization for breast cancer advocacy, where the entire group was essentially run out of a room of our house. My father was in charge of building the website and making sure that it ran smoothly. My mother was the spokesperson, often attending various conventions and symposiums to address those in the medical field about breast cancer and HER2+, a more aggressive expression. Launching the group was running quite smoothly until my parents approached me with a favor. They wanted me to design their logo. Andddd it didn't go so well. They gave up and found a professional. Fast forward to my life after art school, and I'm looking back at my high school years wishing I could have helped teenage me come up with a great logo design. While creating a logo is not as easy as it looks, it really is perhaps one of my favorite design challenges. There is a lot to consider when you're making a logo, and I've decided that it might be helpful to make a simplified list for all of you Vingle designers so that you can go out into the branding world and create beautiful things! 1. Keep it simple. As fun as it is to be given the opportunity to really utilize your creative side, it really isn't the appropriate time to start busting out all of those fancy and elaborate tricks you might have learned doing other projects. Creating a visually 'busy' logo is just not effective marketing. 2. Keep in mind that you're creating a symbol to represent a company. It can be pretty direct symbolism, ie: the apple logo for Apple or the red cross for American Red Cross, or it can be more abstract, similar to the Nike swoosh. Another popular logo option is to reduce down to a strictly typographic design. Disney or Kellogg's is a good example of effective typographic logos. Get creative, but keep it simple. My favorite example of balance between creativity and minimalism is the FedEx logo. Have you ever noticed there's an arrow between the E and the X? 3. Do your research. Before thumbnailing your own logo ideas, think of all of the logos you've seen that really caught your attention. Even try drawing them out freehand. Look up interviews with the advertising designers behind some of the world's most famous logos. I would recommend "To Inform and Delight", a documentary about Milton Glaser, the artist who designed the I♥NY logo. 4. When you're finally ready, begin making a list of all the descriptive words you associate with the company and how you want your audience to feel when looking at your logo, like 'friendly' or 'sophisticated'. Then think about your nouns. When you think about your company, what images come to mind? If you were creating a logo for Tropicana Orange Juice, for example, maybe the first thing you think of is a tree or an orange or a glass. Try to think of as many nouns as possible, as these will definitely help you when you start putting pencil to paper. 4. USE YOUR SKETCHBOOK. I can't stress the importance of this. I feel like a lot of artists go straight to their laptops and begin working on Photoshop or Illustrator over working on actual thumbnails first. Technology can really stifle the creative process that is so important in the early stages of design. Draw at least 100 thumbnails in your sketchbook. It will really help you push your own boundaries and give you a number of ideas to choose from. 5. When considering which thumbnail you want to use, think about the different ways your logo will be translated for pamphlets, packages, and other promotional materials. Does your logo translate well to color AND black and white? How does it look on a dark background versus a light background? How does the logo look with text and without text? Is it as visually effective when you adjust the scale? Manipulate your logo over and over, and if it is still recognizable, you probably have yourself a really iconic logo! I hope this can help some of you designers and marketers, especially those of you who might be in the middle of branding or rebranding a company. The logo is always the first start! Happy designing!

Five Weight-Loss Myths: Busted
Is your New Year's resolution to shed a few pounds off this year? Well let me make your life easier. Weight loss can be so complex and utterly confusing because there is simply too much conflicting information out there. Here are six myths that will help you have an easier time shedding those pounds. 1. Myth: No Sweets Before Noon Research has found that participants who ate a 600-calorie, carb- and protein-rich breakfast that included dessert (such as ice cream or chocolate) lost more weight over four months than a group that ate a low-carb morning meal. Avoid calorie bombs like huge chocolate chip muffins, and opt for something like a milkshake with vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, and a little chocolate, or a banana muffin with almond butter. 2. Myth: Added Fiber Keeps You Full High-fiber foods (like fruits and veggies) take longer to digest and hold more water so they seem to fill you up and aid weight loss. The results of a study conducted by the University of Minnesota concluded that added fiber had no effect on fullness and caused more bloating than the low-fiber bars. To quell hunger, stick with foods naturally high in fiber instead of added fiber foods. Use whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables. 3. Myth: Carbs Lead to Weight Gain According to a study published in April 2012, participants who ate a low-calorie diet high in whole wheat for 12 weeks lost more fat than a group that ate a low-calorie diet high in refined wheat. The whole grains are more filling and that likely participants to feel more full after eating whole wheat. Stick with the whole grain pasta. It may not taste the same as refined pasta, but at least you don't have to give it up all together. 4. Myth: You Should Only Use Zero-Calorie Sweeteners Sucralose, aspartame and stevia may be appealing choices for those who are looking to shed a pound or two. However, according to a joint study by the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association, the scientific evidence connecting zero-calorie sweeteners with long-term weight loss in inconclusive. You have to remember that overcompensation is a problem. Just because you skip a sugary soda at lunch doesn't mean that you can have extra at dinner. You will negate any calorie-saving benefit! 5. Myth: Add More Long Rides Cyclists are always talking about going on longer rides is always better, especially when it comes to weight loss. A study in 2012 had overweigh participants do 30 or 60 minutes of moderate exercise a day. Surprisingly, the participants who exercised less lost more weight during the 13-week study. Those who exercised longer ended up eating more throughout the day than the moderate-exercise group. In other words, the longer they exercised the more they overcompensated in food for it.
Top 9 Arguments in Cycling
One would think that cyclists would get along, given that we occupy such a small percentage of the population and share this hobby. However, that is not always the case. Many of us constantly bicker about things that divide us within the sport. Here are Merlin Cycles' 9 arguments made by cyclists: 1. Shimano vs Campagnolo It used to be that everyone with a decent bike had Campy. No other brand could touch their cycling heritage and prestige. Then Shimano came along in the 1980s and changed everything. Shimano quickly made revolutions in cycling technology and Campagnolo couldn't keep up. Shimano's STI were the biggest success, and Campy took a blow that they are still recovering from. It's said that you buy Campagnolo with your heart, and you buy Shimano with you brain. 2. Road Bikes Vs Mountain Bikes There used to be stereotypes (and they might still exist). Roadies are boring and stuck up, mountain bikers are juvenile delinquents. Now everyone seems to dabbling in all sorts of cycling disciplines. The real problem today is that there seems to be inter-disciplinary arguments like hardtail versus full suspension or sportive versus racer. 3. Mountain Bike Wheel Size You might remember the days when all mountain bikes had 26" wheels. Nowadays there are three different wheel sizes to choose from: the new guy on the block 27.5", original 26", and the big ol' 29". Every wheel size will have its fans. They will each hate the other wheel size as well. 4. Doping Most professional cyclists agree that taking performance enhancing drugs is wrong. But what if everyone else is doing it? Are you willing to put your career on the line and suffer through a moral dilemma because other people are cheating? 5. Canitlever or Discs This is mostly a debate with road cyclists. The mountain biking world gladly embraced disc brakes several years ago. Even the cyclocross would pretty much settled on disc brakes (at least the people who even use the brakes have settled on disc brakes). There are three types of people in this debate: pros, traditionalists, and normal people. Normal people want discs. Traditionalist don’t like anything since Hinault retired. Racers have genuine concerns over weight, frame stiffness and aerodynamics. 6. SPD vs Flats Although the Downhill MTB scene has a mild hoo-ha about riding clipless pedals or flat pedals, the real proper arguing about them goes on in the BMX racing world. The key point is that being able to control your BMX around a race course without having to be physically attached to your bike is one of the skills of BMX. SPDs are cheating. SPDs are faster though and it’s often those who cross the line first who make the rules. 7. Clincher, Tub, or Tubeless In the road and cyclocross world there’s the debate about tubular tires versus clincher tires. Racers and other obsessives use tubs (sealed air-filled sausages that you glue on to special rims). Mere mortal normal people use clinchers. Tubeless proponents are adamant that it’s worth the faff of setup and repair. Everyone else just puts an inner tube in and gets on with their life. 8. Steel vs Carbon vs Titanium vs Aluminum Steel is real and all that, it's also heavy. Carbon is incredibly light, but we've all seen some busted carbon. Titanium shows the best of both carbon and steel, but you're going to pay for it. And aluminum, well, it's relatively cheap. 9. Competition We are a competitive bunch, and sometimes that gets the better of us. Whether it's trying to drop a wheelsucker or training to take that KOM, competition fuels us a bit. Sometimes though, competition can be a form of argument where we become more rude than supportive of each other. Things like Strava (not that I don't use it but it) tends motivate you to beat the other guy. And don't get me started on people cheating on Strava.
Mystery Artist Wanksy Paints Penises Around Potholes To Get Them Fixed [NSFW]
Armed with only a can of spray paint, an artist located in Manchester, England, is determined to rid the streets of potholes. How does one get rid of a potholes when city officials don't take the issue seriously? By drawing penises on them of course. The anonymous artist goes by the name "Wanksy", a clever spin-off of the famous street artists Banksy. The artist decided to draw attention to the "appalling" pothole-ridden streets after some of his cyclists friends were badly injured due to the potholes on the streets. “I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus,” he said. “It’s also speedy, I don’t want to be in the road for a long time. It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem.” The artist uses non-permanent paint that washes out within a week or two. Despite the paint's short life span, the potholes have been getting fixed quicker than they were previously. So apparently a penis on the street elevates the urgency of road repair. "People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it,” the artist said. “Suddenly you draw something amusing around it, everyone sees it and it either gets reported or fixed." The local government is not amused. A council spokesman in Bury, a town in Greater Manchester, told the Evening News that the artist’s actions “are not only stupid but incredibly insulting to local residents. Has this person, for just one second, considered how families with young children must feel when they are confronted with these obscene symbols as they walk to school? Not only is this vandalism, but it’s also counter-productive,” the spokesman said. “Every penny that we have to spend cleaning off this graffiti is a penny less that we have to spend on actually repairing the potholes.” Regardless of whether the local government has to spend more to clean the graffiti, the artist is ultimately succeed in his goal. And from the looks of the repair jobs, the local government is spending no time or money trying to remove the graffiti. Rather, they are just covering the pothole with new asphalt.
