    The French component manufacturer has come a long way from its days of disguising new technology nearly any Mavic product in recent history stands out with a blaze of yellow color The featured builders were Argonaut Cycles from Portland Ore Independent Fabrication from Newmarket N H Lynskey Performance from Chattanooga Tenn Mosaic Cycles from Boulder Colo Ritte Cycles from Venice Calif and Seven Cycles from Watertown Mass Aaron Barcheck the man behind the torch at Moasic Cycles told VeloNews that his steel RS 1 featured an old school frame design with new school graphics The RS 1 is built with True Temper S3 tubing and comes in in at just around 15 pounds without pedals Painted black splashes of Mavic s yellow logo around the frame made for a clean classic design Ben Farver from Argonaut echoed that same philosophy with his build The design by Garrett Chow from Mash S F featured a timeline on the top tube representing the history and milestones for Mavic Farver who started building steel frames and made the switch to carbon a few years ago said that his builds are modern while maintaining a sense of classicism The Lynskey and Seven Cycles bikes were the two titanium bikes featured Kenny Reynolds a custom car and motorcycle artist from Tennessee painted the Lynskey Its loud paint stood apart from the more subdued look of the rest of the frames a choice made to represent the future of Mavic rather than the past said Mark Lynskey Seven struck a more classic tone on its Axiom SL featuring Argen double butted 3 2 5 titanium The all black paint was a tribute to Mavic not with logos but with yellow pinstripes Ritte Cycles lived up to its reputation for fantastic custom paint The carbon Vlaanderen is Ritte s flagship bike but the design by Spencer Canon really stood out Pops of pixelated color were added to a yellow and black base and the result was fantastic Chad Moore Mavic marketing director said This project was an opportunity for Mavic to connect with brands in the U S who are innovators and standouts in the industry We couldn t be more pleased with the partners we ve had in this endeavor and we hope this drives interest in their work We also hope it helps to remind Mavic fans of our long history in the sport of cycling The Ritte and Seven will be auctioned off to charity this fall Both bikes will be sold through The Pro s Closet on eBay and the proceeds will benefit the World Bicycle Relief The other bikes will stay with the builders to be ridden and remembered Like Mavic s first Dura rims the builds by these framebuilders display some traditional features such as tube design and classic paint schemes while still pushing the envelope in ways unique to each builder s methods Ultimately it was an impressive marriage of timelessness beauty and innovation Related Stories Five tips for avoiding

  • Short vs Long Braking On Carbon Clinchers
    spent a couple of years getting our carbon brake walls to take the heat using high temp resins and a higher curing progress The next problem is solving the rubber in the tire and tube from degrading I think the rubber used in tubes and tires is vulcanized at around 320 degrees So when tires and tubes see more than this they start to break down It might take repeated elevated temps to do this the first hard stop may not but over cycles the tube can start to fail even though the tire hasn t My advice if you know you have spikes of heat into your carbon rims is to at least replace the tubes and inspect the tire bead to see if it has become soft gummy or degraded and replace if needed We are still working on the problem Steve Hed Founder Hed Design From Reynolds The worst type of riding style for carbon wheels is the rear brake dragger Prior to our CTg laminate the typical carbon rim heat failure was almost always the rear wheel rarely did we ever see a front wheel with heat failure Now with the CTg laminate we don t really get many heat failures at all not even rear wheel failures To answer your question directly Yes for sure shorter more powerful braking produces less heat build up than prolonged braking We ve known this for a long time to be the case I ve had similar discussions with other manufacturers and we all have the same experience I reference a conversation with Jorg Ludwig not too long ago when he was telling me that he Mario Cipollini and other pro riders never had a heat failure with their team s superlight carbon wheels but that in the commercial marketplace his experience is the same as mine that the heat failures with those same wheels are mostly rear wheels as a result of dragging the rear brake Paul Lew Director of Technology and Innovation Reynolds Cycling From ENVE Composites Heat buildup in the rim will have more to do with average speed during the duration of the descent than the method of braking For the duration of a descent coasting and then braking into the corners usually results in a higher overall average speed Higher average speeds result in lower rim temperatures because of the following At higher speeds much more energy is dissipated by aerodynamic drag than at slower speed Higher speeds shift the balance of energy dissipation to aerodynamic drag and away from the rim and brake pad Convection of heat off the rim is accelerated by the higher air speeds One scenario where the braking style will change heat buildup in the rim even if the same average speed is maintained Dragging brakes tends to glaze pads and glazed pads don t shed material under braking Shedding of pad material is of significant benefit to keeping the pad rim system temperatures under control Glazed pads run

  • Road Tester: Zipp Super-9 Disc Wheel
    Pro Evo pads in the dry to be the best we have experienced and there were no issues with grabby braking They also brake well in the wet compared to many carbon wheels available On this wheel the two sides of the brake track are not parallel instead they point inwards 26 4mm wide and the widest point is just below the brake 27 5mm wide This is in line with Zipp s tried and tested carbon clincher wheels and helps to provide a wide tyre bed This also meant we had no issues with frame rub at the narrowest point of the chainstays The hub on the Super 9 is compatible with both 10 and 11 speed set ups and has a maximum rider weight of weight limit of 125kg We tested the Super 9 disc with an 808 on the front and found it to be the one of the fastest set ups we have ridden Being a clincher not only allows for lower rolling resistance but makes life easier in terms of daily use especially when it comes to the ease and speed of fixing punctures Plus it allows for a wider range of tyre choices and works out cheaper in the longer term when it comes to replacing tubes rather than fixing or replacing tubular tyres If you want to eek out every little extra when it comes to free time this speedy wheel is an excellent choice Performance 9 Value 9 RRP 1850 Related Stories Analysing The Right Run Metrics Run Training Are You A Stomper How to choose the right bike saddle First Ride New Mavic carbon clinchers FILED UNDER Gear Tech TAGS About Carbon Clincher Disc Guide Information Review Super 9 wheel Zipp Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To
