The Frace F160 is Milled From a 70kg Slab of Aluminum
This is so awesome. I wish I had a 5 axis mill I could use to profile out a bike frame!

Video: In-Depth Analysis of Flat Pedal Efficiency with the Strength Factory
Cool video. Results were much closer that I would have expected. I would even expect a control point at zero watts could have a few BPM variation over a few days or weeks. I ride flats 98% of the time. I don't think there is any difference in power I can put down to the wheels. I mean, I'm still the same person putting the power down either way. I just find flats more comfortable because I can reposition my feet for different terrain or to use slightly different muscles on longer rides. Plus there is nothing scarier to me than unclipping mid air. I could never get my SPDs cranked down tight enough, so those got moved over to my gravel crusher. 5.10s and some grippy pedals are my go-to.

Senior Engineering Taken to the Trails: Home Built Hardtail
This reminds me of how my hardtail project keeps getting bumped by other projects. Thank you for the write up. You did a great job!!! Projects like this bring academia together with the real world. It's not obvious to the outsider how much time goes into even the smallest details like designing and building fixtures & jigs, or just how clean those thin tubes really need to be! I think going through the entire process yourself is super valuable, and you will be a much better engineer because of it!

Ridden & Rated: 12 Jackets for Wet Weather Riding
+1 on pit zips for riding jackets. Lots of companies are ditching them, which is a bummer. Breathable fabrics are great, but sometimes being able to quickly dump out the heat and moisture through the pit zips, while being shielded from the rain, is super nice.
