Inventory of Popular Topics in the Bicycle Industry
Speaking of UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), we must all love and hate this organization.
Although it is said that 'as long as you like bicycles, we are a family', even as a family, it is inevitable to have daily 'arguments and arguments'. So, what are the popular "tear and force" topics among cyclists in the cycling industry recently? Let's talk about it today!
1. Disc brake or ring brake?
Whether to stick to the lap brake or embrace the disc brake has always been a hot topic of debate among car enthusiasts, and everyone has also divided into two distinct factions. The "disc brake party" believes that disc brake systems undoubtedly have huge advantages compared to circular brake systems in terms of reliability and braking effectiveness. Secondly, with manufacturers fully investing in the research and development of disc brake road models, it is impossible for the future road vehicle market to be fully occupied by disc brake models. Contrary to the trend of technology popularity, reversing history is not advisable!
However, the Circle Brake Party does not necessarily represent conservatism, and car enthusiasts who love Circle Brake naturally have their own reasons and ideas.
Disc brake party: I have reliable performance, don't worry about brake heat decay!
Circle brake party: I am light in weight.
Disc brake party: I have a delicate braking feel!
Circle brake party: I am light in weight;
Disc brake party: My barrel shaft structure is solid and reliable!
Circle brake party: I am light in weight;
Disc Brake Party: Can we bypass the weight issue...
Circle brake party: Alright, I have better pneumatic design, more mature technology, and simpler maintenance.
Disc Brake Party: Let's continue discussing the issue of weight.
Of course, joking goes to joking. Both disc brakes and disc brakes have their own characteristics and advantages. Which one is your dish?
Should the pneumatic posture of "brain opening" be prohibited?
Speaking of UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), we must all love and hate this organization. On the one hand, UCI has held one after another exciting international competitions, which have feast the eyes of car fans. On the other hand, UCI, like a nagging "old lady", adheres to the principle of managing all major and minor matters, and imposes strict restrictions on drivers' equipment, clothing, and movements.
Recently, this "old lady" has issued a new regulation prohibiting drivers from using the "super stick" action of lying down and driving. The representative figure who uses this action is "cousin" Fromm.
The release of this prohibition regulation has sparked heated discussions among car enthusiasts, who oppose this resolution. Car enthusiasts believe that every racing driver will be filled with a desire for victory in their hearts. It's not inevitable to use these "coquettish actions" that can increase one's chances of winning, and secondly, it can also increase the viewing experience of the competition. Why not do it?
But car enthusiasts who support this resolution believe that cycling is inherently a dangerous sport. Allowing drivers to engage in these "abnormal" postures will only increase the risk of the race, especially as these top drivers play the role of "opinion leaders". If fanatical car enthusiasts become dangerous by imitating these movements, the consequences will be unimaginable.
3. Which is better, a press in center shaft or a screw in center shaft?
In the past two years, Trek has launched a new five way specification - T47, which has been fully retrofitted on its newly released road vehicles. This move has left many car enthusiasts confused. Why didn't you big Trek follow the routine and play the game! After playing with the push-in center shaft for so many years, how did you suddenly return to the "pre liberation" and start tossing and turning the push-in center shaft again?
There are a variety of specifications for the center axle of the frame, and this "BB" or that "BB" makes many car enthusiasts feel dizzy and disoriented. However, there are only two types of center axle: the press in type and the spin in type, and which one is better has always been the focus of debate among car enthusiasts. Compared to the press in type center axle, the development history of the spin in type center axle represented by the QuickLink GXP is even longer. However, with the "troublemaker" Canon Dell and FSA launching the BB30 press in type center axle in 2001, the development of the press in type center axle has been advancing rapidly, gradually replacing the spin in type center axle as the mainstream specification.
Car enthusiasts who like the pressed in center axle believe that the ultra-light weight and the ability to maintain a beautiful connection between the frame and the center axle are the reasons why supporters of the pressed in center axle cannot resist its charm. But many car enthusiasts still insist on using a frame with a screw-in center axle, after all, the screw-in center axle is not as delicate as a pressed in center axle during disassembly and assembly, and there is no annoying noise caused by mud entering or improper installation.
Do you need teammates for long-distance cycling?
As the holiday approaches, perhaps everyone has the idea of long-distance cycling. Is it to enjoy the scenery of the journey alone or to set off with a group of teammates in a lively manner? This is one of the issues that many car enthusiasts who enjoy long-distance cycling enjoy arguing about. Of course, strictly speaking, this is not considered a "dispute" because it is closely related to personal personality and the way you enjoy traveling.
For cyclists who enjoy riding alone, you can freely arrange your itinerary and time without being hindered by the different opinions of your peers. At the same time, as you focus on cycling instead of chatting and communicating with your teammates, you will also be more likely to notice new things happening around you, adding a different kind of fun to your journey. But from another perspective, riding alone means you have to face the risks that may arise during the journey alone, and repairing a tire in the wind may be a common occurrence.
Riding with teammates is a completely different experience. Communication and interaction among everyone will make the entire journey more lively and interesting, and there is no need to worry about no one helping you when encountering difficulties. However, at the same time, you will not be very free in arranging your itinerary and time, and you must take into account the opinions and feelings of the big family.
