8 Gorgeous Bikes from the 2019 Handmade Bicycle Show Australia
Good god I'd get one of those over a plastic bike any day. It's such a work of art without even trying. And I'm not even super opinionated on frame material. Absolutely gorgeous.

UCI Threatens to Impose 'Disciplinary Measures' on Licensed Riders Who Compete in FIM eMTB Series
Any self respecting cyclist isn’t going to pretend to ‘race’ with a motor on board. Leave that to the motocross crowd if you’re into that thing. A manufactured spectator event that combines human power with electric motors seems out of place with the purpose of biking in general, so doesn’t belong under the governance of a cycling body. That said I agree with UCI; you’re either a cyclist or you’re a motor-cyclist.

Opinion: Carbon and Aluminum Wheels - Does Stiffer Always Mean Better?
Fundamentally, do you want an entire system flexing—less predictable—or a more predictable system, I.e. very little flex in the system? For example, Would a super stiff bike with flexible bars perform the same as a bike with a compliant fork, frame, stem, and handlebars? My point is, don’t blame the wheels. The contact points affect suspension which influences comfort which results in faster times over distance. These contact point points are basically your hands (legs receive less unsprung forces). The 35mm standard and idea of stiff handlebars is dumb and only results in fatigue and pain... if you have a predictable wheel movement but a compliant handlebar setup, the result is better handling.

Care to elaborate? I’m sure there are plenty who would disagree with that assessment.
