more material to disperse heat and better thermal properties. Also, no riveted union with the center section that has terrible heat transfer.

Because everyone is a bunch of pussies. No pun intended. They need to bring back semi pro and put all the tweeners in a class of their own and let them do as they please.

there are NDT (non-destructive tests - thermography, ultrasonics, x-rays etc)) for that. No need to take the frame up to breaking point. and remember, if the frame is cracked in a highly stressed early, the breaking point is likely to be much lower than the design breaking strength. Why test to failure if it could be repaired.

This would be great if it were for para-athletes who would benefit from electric motor assisted mountain bikes.

i wouldn't get too excited about graphene: they haven't yet found a commercially sustainable way of producing long chains of the stuff, much less fabrics of it. In industry, it's typically in short length form, and mixed in with other components. Given ... more »

quite possible. But worth looking at some typical strength numbers: One can observe that the tensile strength of the flax yarns (72±7 MPa) is significantly higher than the one of the hemp yarns (45±5 MPa) and this for equivalent yarn fineness and torque ... more »

I wonder how far that statement by EnE regarding the use of flax composites in non-structural applications,extends to structural aspects of a bicycle, especially an MTB. And it costs more than CF. Ouch. like we need to pay more for bicycles as it is. ... more »
