Well, if he's back in the news cycle from a video with
Then please do read 's review of the Armstrong Lie in Issue 11 of our magazine and let us know if you think it's creepy or what.
We're just gonna have to see if this actually works. It's uses an iPhone app and camera with targets.
The multidimensional shape of each target along with the paw dots allow the targets to be identified and located in 3-dimensional space with a precision better than 0.001 inches from a single image. The distance and angles between components in the same image can be measured precisely with this method. Comparing positions of the bicycle components over multiple images provides distance traveled and the system records the positions of all major derailleur components at necessary shift points.
And sounds like lots of math and engineering going into aligning the derailer pulley to the cog.
As I said to , "It’s like a constant stream of bike consciousness. "Oh look a hot bike then a world champion, and a race, and beer. Then there's Ned, who when asked about the scene, observed, "Fat Bike Action!" And hey, some kids doing BMX tricks while women raced road. So how do you capture that? By bouncing around, like a kid in a bike bouncy house and taking photos.
Of the 406 shots, here are the 21 best and products that interested us the most. Like, XTR, CX1, and the Ergon seatpost.
Difference between Terpstra's bike and the Roubaix SL4, our Publisher, has been riding since the Fall, is Force 22 instead of the Red 22 spec. When raced locally, the fenders are removed and the fast, Zipp Firecrests replace the 30s. Force is SRAM's value group, with all the features of Red , at a more affordable price.
Between the two, there's a $3K price difference. Terpstra's race-winning Roubaix is about $9K and our parking-lot crit version is $6K.

Bike Hugger® is bike culture blogged. As a group blog, with different voices, we cover diverse topics, but the bike centers us. You won’t find a marketing box to put us in or a label to slap onto what we do. Much of it is in the moment and we try to do interesting, epic stuff.
We also believe the bike is a connector with web designers, developers, and creative professionals. That’s why you’ll find us at events like SXSW with our Mobile Socials
For the past 8 years we’ve built an audience on our blog and in social channels, like Twitter, G+, Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, and Tumblr(s). We publish photos on Flickr, videos on YouTube, and podcasts on iTunes.
Each month in our magazine we cover diverse topics in longform with the bike centering us. We believe it's a connector and the context for what we write about. We chase interesting, epic stuff and share our opinions about what we've ridden and where. Subscription revenues directly support the writing, editing, and production of our Magazine. It’s ad free and published monthly on iTunes and the Web.
