Random bike related stuff…

End of another week, start of another weekend.  This morning was my first look at Beach road for 3 or 4 weeks or something like that.  I must say, it was nice to get back out there.

Anyway, in the quiet moments between consults this morning, here are a few bikey things that have come my way this week.

First is this video, courtesy of http://www.cyclingtips.com

78kph?  No problem!  Although usually if I’m travelling at that speed there’s a fair amount of downhill involved.  How do they do it?  Sigh.  I guess that’s why they are the Pros, and get paid the big bucks.

Sometimes bike stuff gets overly technical, so it’s refreshing to see a very non-technical review of a new MTB:

For some serious stunt riding, you can’t go past Danny McCaskill:

But he kind of makes it look like you need one of those stupid stunt bikes with a seat down where your knees should be.  Not so!

And finally, as the hot weather heads our way, here’s a tip on how to cool off on your bike this summer.  Probably wanna take a first aid kit with you if you’re trying this for the first time…

    You wanna do 78 kph on the flat?
    i thought doing 44 this morning was pretty good…and that was without the drafting aid to get up to that speed.
