This is fun
A new vid from GU surrounding their Golden Packet Contest. They’re having too much fun with this Yeti theme!
GuEnergy has a contest running… and probably the best flavoured Gel on the market…
This is pretty awesome. This guy gets a ticket from a confused police officer in New York and then proceeds to make a video of him crashing into all the obstacles in bike lanes that make them unsafe… including a police car!
MMmmm must get some… I was just thinking the other day that I wish there were other non-sweet flavours like Gu Peanut Butter flavoured gel. Lo and Behold! Salted Caramel! Boom!
I was visiting my folks yesterday for Mother’s Day. I love my folks and don’t see them near enough.
Anyhow. Soon after I got there, they asked me if I had seen my picture from the Toronto Marathon in the National Post.
Well, no I hadn’t, but here it is. That’s me at the bottom, in the forefront. Too bad it was a not great day for me otherwise but fun to make the national press 😉
Ok…. yes it’s exciting that there’s a potentially new carbon fiber material out there that’s stronger and lighter and sustainable, but their 1st product:
The first product, called FXR (Front Xtended Range), is designed to be mounted in between aero bars and carry a Speedfil A2 bottle.
Weighs in at:
just 20 grams compared to competing systems weighing 25 grams
Now come on… 5 grams? I really did laugh out loud.
Extending this small piece into the full size of a bike frame and I start getting a little excited. Say there’s 100x the quantity of carbon fiber in a frame than this little prototype. That’d be a savings of 500g – that’s pretty serious.
Outside running today in a few degrees below freezing, it occurred to me that I’ve mastered the snot rocket. I don’t remember the last time is botched it and ended up wearing the effluent
For those of you who haven’t yet mastered this handy hanky-saving trick:
Well this is a different spin on the “one and done”.
Can’t say I’m terribly surprised.
They could go just slighly upstate and have so much better of an event for a lot less cost (think Catskills Mountains).
