Whispers of What the Tour De France Could Look Like
By: Jonny Long / CyclingTips

Sure, there is less than a week until the route of the 2023 Tour de France is unveiled, but you want to know now, right?

The closer we get to the date when race director Christian Prudhomme and invited Tour cyclists gather in Paris to watch what is effectively a big and expensive PowerPoint presentation, the more impatient we all become.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped internet sleuths and various local French press from piecing together evidence of where the 2023 race will go.

2023 SPECIALIZED DIVERGE STR REVIEW: ABSURDLY COMFY, BUT ALSO HEAVY AND PRICEY
By: James Huang / CyclingTips

30 mm of rear suspension travel, 20 mm of front travel, and clearance for 700x47 mm knobbies is a formula for a good time on rough terrain.

Specialized,with the new Diverge STR flagship gravel bike, is essentially turning its entire seat tube into a flexible seatpost. Specialized says it’s good for 30 mm of travel, and it’s even controlled by a dedicated oil damper. Sounds complicated, no? It most definitely is, and it’s also heavy, painfully expensive, and looks a little goofy, too.

But holy crap, is the ride quality amazing.

COOL TOOL TUESDAY #11: TALKING TORQUE WRENCHES, PART TWO
By: Dave Rome / CyclingTips

A guide on how to correctly use a torque wrench.

OK, so you’ve now got a good idea of why you need a torque wrench and what type may be right for your bicycle-fixing needs. Next is to understand how (and how not) to use such an instrument. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to mess up using a torque wrench.

This topic could quickly become an e-book that only I would buy. But today I’ll stick to the most important things to know and the most common issues to avoid. Alright, it’s time to talk torque, again.

Riding from Crested Butte to Aspen: The 46th Annual Pearl Pass Klunker Tour
By: Betsy Welsch / VeloNews

Before there was mountain biking, there were just mountains and bikes. In September of 1976, a motley group of 15 decided to ride bikes from Crested Butte to Aspen over Pearl Pass at 12,700 feet. They called it the Pearl Pass Klunker Tour, in homage to the place, and to the bikes ridden.

The 38-mile journey is arduous still today due to the elevation and incredibly rough terrain on the northwestern side of the pass. However, it’s easily doable (to ride from CB to Aspen and even back) in one day on modern bikes and with the benefit of lived experience.

Back then, however, no one had done it.

2023 TREK DOMANE+ E-ROAD BIKE REVIEW: ULTRA-QUIET, ULTRA-STEALTHY
By: James Huang / CyclingTips

Trek has today announced the third generation of its Domane+ e-assist road bike, and it’s quite the change from the one that came before. There’s a new motor from German company TQ, a brand-new carbon fiber frame with more advanced carbon fiber content and construction, more tire clearance, and in general, a sleeker and lighter total package that looks and feels more like a “regular” road bike.

It sounds like quite the complete package on paper, and it mostly is in reality – with some caveats, of course.

MATHIEU VAN DER POEL RACED A ROAD BIKE AT GRAVEL WORLDS
By: Dave Rome / CyclingTips

There has been plenty of chatter about the fact the inaugural UCI Gravel World Championships was being run on a relatively flat course that’s as much a road race as it is a gravel race. And such talk is only reinforced by the fact Mathieu van der Poel rode a Canyon Ultimate CFR road bike at the event.

 you guys are seeing it wrong, i ride an 6km uphill fire road every weekend, and most of the times i stumble upon some gravel riders, half of their bikes are on XC bikes with curly bars as you mention, but they have mentioned several times, their bikes are far from perfect, there are still improvements that the bikes need and cannot be done if they are riding XC bikes with curly bars. Like the rigidity of a road bike when going on pavement. It is a new sport after all. Things aren't that simple.

 A mountain bike doesn’t have the sufficient gearing, multiple position options and fast rolling wheel speed to keep up on competitive or at least faster group rides or races, whereas this bike would.

Will I buy one? No. But, enough people will, and they’ll enjoy it. What’s wrong with that?

 For me, a gravel bike is a road bike for people like me that don't care about going uber fast. It has a lots of mounts for backpacking or carrying camera stuff, bigger tires so it is more comfortable over rough roads/gravel to get away from cars. Trails around here are closed after rain so I grab that to ride cause it is better on those surfaces then my hardtail.

 @gdharries: Nobody holds a gun to your head forcing you to run mountain bike gearing when using one as the basis for a gravel bike you know, or to limit yourself to a flat/riser bar without additional hand/upper body position options.

 @gdharries: many 1x gravel bikes have the same gearing as xc bikes, there is no difference in a lightweight 29er and a 700c gravel wheelset, you can choose whatever tire choice you like for either. Bull bars are also an option if you don’t mind losing some style points. I ride a hard tail with gravel bike buddies all the time, it depends on the terrain who’s faster but I’m pretty sure I have more fun.

 I can think of two situations:
- you're living in the Alps and don't have the physical capacity (anymore) to do long climbs
- you live in a relatively flat area and don't have the physical capacity to reach 25 km/h yourself

Seeing the ebike sales numbers, I don't believe they all live in the Alps....

 So an unfit rider can ride with a very fit one and both of them have a good time. For instance if your wife is an elite athlete and you are a couch potato, now you can accompany her on training rides and not get dropped. Heck, you might even be able to motor pace for her!

 @Mac1987: On a steel commuter with hub dynamo, Nexus 7 rear hub, a big basket on the front rack and big bicycle bags on the rear rack (and not so aero clothes and haircut) I apparently ride somewhere around 23km/h, according to those roadside speedometers. I suppose a typical roadbike takes next to nothing to exceed 25km/h on level ground, doesn't it?

Which also implies that if you want to ride with any half-decent road cyclist on a road race bike, the assistance isn't going to help any as it shuts off beyond 25km/h.

 @nozes: I don't want one, but I can see why a rider who is less fit, has less time to get fit, or doesn't have the physical potential to get sufficiently fit would want one. Not everybody wants to work hard and commit to building cycling fitness. You don't have to live in the Alps to want one, you just have to want to ride longer or do more climbing than your body or mind allow. My buddy and I were on a 60+ mile gravel ride, 6k feet of climbing, when we came up on an older woman on an ebike. She sheepishly admitted feeling torn about riding an ebike, but we both cheered her on. She then put it in full boost mode and dropped us on a short climb, just to show us what it could do! Not what I want to ride right now (maybe when I get older), but good for her. She probably wouldn't ride at all if she didn't have battery assist. I really don't get all the ebike hate. They have their time and place.

 @dcaf:

The downside to a bike like that Trek is that a less fit rider is often a less skilled rider too, but now they can hang on fast group rides, where their lack of skill can be a detriment for those around them.

I know that’s a pretty limited scenario, but it definitely will happen.

 @vinay: I was in Annecy over the summer - they've got a lovely cycle path round the lake that I used to get to the shuttle bus up the local mountain. I was wondering why I was overtaking all the ebikes. Then scrolled through my Garmin screens and I was doing just over 25kph for about 10km. On my enduro bike, in a full face. So, can't really see the point in an e road bike when that speed is fairly easy. Commuter bikes, cargo, even e-shuttling make sense. But not a road bike that'll do 25kph at a very gentle cruise. My wife couldn't ride an e road bike with me, as I ride faster than the speed cutout most of the time, so it doesn't do that fitness leveling thing an e-MTB does

 Not sure what it is like in North America, but here in Europe we've got two types of pedal assisted bikes. You've got the regular assisted bikes which by law are treated similarly to unassisted bikes. These are limited to 25km/h (16mph). Then you've got the faster ones which are limited at 40km/h (25mph). You then have to abide to the laws of mopeds, you need insurance, license plate and all that. But I doubt the bike in the article is like that as I doubt people are going to mount a license plate and stick to the main roads. So yeah, a road race bike with pedal assist, limited to 25km/h seems incredibly useless. Except maybe for people who don't have the power to climb their local hills and/or don't have the stamina to stand up on their pedals. But then there must be a tiny subset of those who apparently don't have the strength, but do have the guts to descend after they've reached the top.

As this stuff has made it to a Pinkbike article anyway, it would be nice if Pinkbike does an in-depth article on this scene. Who rides road bikes with pedal assist and why?

Or see Surons on dedicated NON motorized MTB single track with other eMTB's claiming that they are indeed all mountain bikes (also an actual experience).

So we will see how long that lasts.

That ought to give you a good idea of just how little work those moped riders are actually doing, and how much the motor is doing for them.

 I'm probably the only person that read the article on torque wrenches, and the only one who stopped to think about why putting a crow's foot attachment at a 90 degree angle doesn't change the applied torque.

Realized this is why: Torque is R cross F, right? Well the cross product is bilinear (meaning (R1+R2) cross F equals R1 cross F plus R2 cross F). So, your lever arm is the line from your hand to the crow's foot attachment, but we can break that triangle into two parts - a long part (R1) parallel to the torque wrench, and a short part (R2) connecting the wrench head to the crow's foot part, which is parallel to *the direction of force you're assumed to be applying, which is perpendicular to the wrench*. What happens when you cross parallel vectors? You get zero. So our formula becomes: (R1 + R2) x F = R1 x F + R2 x F = R1 x F, which is the original torque with no attachment.

I'm sure the two of you that will read the torque article in 2027 will be glad I left this comment.
  • 2 0
 Crowfoot thing is kinda obvious. What was quite a surprise to me and took a bit of thinking to accept, and what they only glanced over in this article, is the fact that measurement results differ depending on where you grip the wrench with you hand.. I used to grip at the very end of the level, and that is no bueno
  • 4 1
 @GZMS: Well mathematically I think that part is "obvious". The length of the lever arm is the distance from your hand to the torque wrench head, by definition. If you're pushing perpendicular to the wrench then the torque magnitude is literally (distance from hand to wrench head) times (force). So your hand position directly determines the torque you get.
  • 5 0
 @WaterBear: well it is not that simple, though... "position directly determines the torque you get" - if you do it with the same force... but you don't, because you rely on torque wrench mechanism to click, when the torque (lever*force) is right...
"the distance from your hand to the torque wrench head" - that would be the case if the wrench would be a solid one piece bar, but the torque value is measured at a joint somewhere between the handle and the head, which makes it a quite tricky multi-lever system..
here is a nice video explaining it all: www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f746pF1xc0
  • 1 1
 @GZMS: It boils down to how correct the model is. I assumed the wrench pivoted at the socket, but if it does not (as in the video) then you apply conservation of torque at the actual pivot like they do to carry out computations.

You need to be aware though that if you're being that realistic, then you have to go redo the cross products in my original post and I wonder how "obvious" that result still is to you if the basic equations of torque in the first place were not.
  • 2 0
 @WaterBear: seems like you are strugling with basic definitions of what the torque is and are trying to mask it behind some maths knowledge..

Torque is force times the perpendicular distance from the line of action of the force to the axis of rotation. Force did not change. Perpendicular distance from the line of action to the axis hasnt change. So torque hasnt changed. Wow, someone in 2027 will trully be happy.

 I thought pinkbike was a safe refuge from my undergrad… guess it’s time to go read NSMB now Wink
  • 1 0
 @WaterBear: Draw a free-body diagram for the torque wrench. It's all in one plane so it's not too tricky. If you use arbitrary vector magnitudes you can get a good idea of where the torque changes. You may have to apply more force with your hand to get the same amount of torque if you choke up on a handle, but the breakaway mechanism is only going to respond to the applied torque from the handle, not your hand. It depends on the tool and the mechanism (pivot points) whether you mess things up by changing hand position.
  • 2 0
 I did read the article (and really liked it) and I agree with @A-HIGHLY-EDUCATED-PROFESSIONAL. The moment the nut (or whatever you're tightening) experiences is that which the pivot (between tool and attachment) experiences plus the cross product of the distance of nut to pivot and the force applied. You just want the nut to experience the moment transferred by the pivot and cancel out that cross product. Hence indeed the force and distance component should be parallel.

What I wasn't aware of:
1. Your torque tool isn't accurate at the extreme ends. My torque tool (a screwdriver shaped one from Wiha) has a range from 0.25 to 6Nm (in quarter Nm increments) and most of the time I use it to tighten bolts up to 6Nm (for fork and brake). Apparently I don't have the right tool for this.
2. Store the tool in the lightest setting. I usually leave in the last used setting, so typically 6Nm or 4Nm. Been doing that for over fifteen years or so...

Lauf (brand most known for its carbon leaf-spring trailing arm suspension fork) also has a similar design carbon frame gravel bike that basically works the same as the Cannondale, but lacking the kingpin feature it doesn't have as much movement in its rear stays.
