Drop bar & Stem

28 Dec

Having options on handlebar is do come in handy especially if you’re an all-rounder cyclist; urban, long distance, bla bla bla. I guess most of us favored to ride comfortably with riser bar in the early days. Over time we’ll switch to bullhorns & drop bars. Yes drop bars, the classic handlebar.

 

Even big shouldered Keirin riders trust these bars

Personally…drop bars only look best when paired with quill stems be it nitto, cinelli etc etc.  Then you have the option to either go with aluminum or steel stem and aluminum or cro-mo or steel bars. Here are cost comparison to consider:

Al bar + Al stem:
$152 (approx RM471)
660g

Cr-Mo bar + Cr-Mo stem:
$196 (approx RM607)
1135g

Al bar + Cr-Mo stem:
$230 (approx RM713)
770g

Cr-Mo bar + Al stem:
$118 (approx RM366)
1025g

so what’s your pick?

Blast From The Past

16 Dec

Alfred Letourneur was a professional cyclist. He is known for setting the motor-paced world speed record. He was professional cyclist from 1928 to 1942

On 22 October 1938, Alfred Letourneur was able to beat the motor-paced world speed record on a bicycle, reaching 147,058 km/h at a velodrome in France, riding behind a motorbike. On 17 May 1941 he broke the record again with speed reaching 175,29 km/h (108.92 mph) on a Schwinn bicycle where he rode behind a car on a freeway in California.

This here is the bike that made he rode that day – The Letourneur Speed Bike. The predecessor of pursuit frames today..
