2013 Shimano Road Wheels – New Aero Clincher, Tubeless & Tubular Options

first_imgThe C24’s hubs are on the left, and the other wheels shown below all use the OptBal 2:1 lacing with the hubs on the right. All wheels use a new full titanium freehub body. Previously, Shimano’s freehub mechanism had a ti outer section where the cassette sits, but the internal bits were steel. Now it’s all ti, baby!The C35 has 35mm deep rim and comes in tubeless clincher (shown) and a full carbon tubular.  Full specs are:WH-9000-C35-CL 35mm Carbon/Alloy Laminate ClincherOpt-Bal 2:1 lacingCarbon laminate construction rim (~439g)Extra wide flange hub (+7mm)100% Ti FH body1488gMSRP $2199.99WH-9000-C35-TU 35mm Carbon TubularOpt-Bal 2:1 lacing100% Carbon construction rim (~362g)Off-set rim with extra wide flange hub (+7mm)100% Ti FH body1362gMSRP $2999.99 The C50 gets a deeper 50mm rim and comes as a carbon alloy clincher (left) or full carbon tubular (right). Features are:WH-9000-C50-CL 50mm Carbon/Alloy Composite Clincher23mm D2 rim profileOpt-Bal 2:1 lacingCarbon/Alloy constructionExtra wide flange hub (+7mm)Hidden nipples100% Ti FH body1672gMSRP $2399.99WH-9000-C50-TU 50mm Carbon Tubular24mm D2 rim profileOpt-Bal 2:1 lacing100% High modulus carbon constructionExtra wide flange hub (+7mm)Hidden nipples100% Ti FH body1449gMSRP $3199.99 The 9000-series Dura-Ace hubs, like all of the complete wheels, continue to use Shimano’s cup-and-cone angular contact bearing system. It’s reliable, easy to service and Shimano says it’s strong and rolls smooth. We’d agree based on our use of them. The big changes are the move to 11-speed and a full titanium freehub assembly like on the wheels. They lose 12g from the 7900-series hubs.They’ll be available in 24, 28, 32 and 36 spoke hole options, front and rear. Lastly, the tallest wheels are the C75 and only come as a full carbon fiber tubular. Features are:WH-9000-C75-TU 75mm Carbon Tubular24mm D2 rim profileOpt-Bal 2:1 lacing100% High modulus carbon constructionExtra wide flange hub (+7mm)Hidden nipples100% Ti FH body1545gMSRP $3499.99And the wheels come with these nifty skewers: In addition to the completely revamped Dura-Ace DA9000 and 9070 Di2 groups just unveiled, Shimano has introduced a refreshed road bike wheel lineup and Dura-Ace hubs, too.Across the range, they’ve made the rims wider for better comfort and performance. The deeper wheels get a new aero profile to negate the effects of crosswinds, and most receive a new lacing and hub design to improve response and speed. Dubbed, OptBal 2:1, the rear wheels get 3x lacing for 14 spokes on the drive side and seven straight pull spokes on the non drive side. They’re perfectly tangential to the spoke flange to eliminate unnecessary stress and bending.All wheels are 11-speed ready to go with the new components. The non-drive flange has been pushed out 7mm to maintain proper triangulation, and the freehub body is 1.85mm wider. Shimano’s NA road product manager Dave Lawrence says the wheels and the hubs will require both a 1.85mm spacer (included with wheels) and the standard 1mm spacer (comes with cassette) to run a 10-speed cassette on them.Lawrence says there was already space on the hubs to move the non-drive flange out, they just hadn’t taken advantage of it.  They also used offset spoke holes on the rims, so spoke triangulation actually improves without any frame clearance issues. The OptBal 2:1 lacing uses this to give balanced overall tension between the two sides of the wheel – non-drive spokes are pulling twice as hard, but there’s half as many of them.The new rims are called D2 and are 23mm or 24mm wide depending on the wheel model. They also gave them a deeper tire bed so the tire sits more flush with the sidewall and there’s no gap on the clinchers. According to their PR, these combined features balance frontal and side aerodynamics.Above, the new C24 wheels are the only ones that don’t get the OptBal lacing. They’re available in both clincher and Road Tubeless clincher. The clincher rim weight comes in around 383g while the tubeless one is about 420g. Lawrence says the weight difference is mainly because the rim bed is closed on the tubeless models, so you don’t need rim tape. Saving a tube should yield a net lower weight wheelset once tires are installed. Features are:WH-9000-C24-CL 24mm Carbon/Alloy Laminate ClincherCarbon laminate construction rim (~383g)Clincher onlyOff-set rim with wide flange hub100% Ti FH body1364gMSRP$1399.99WH-9000-C24-TL 24mm Carbon/Alloy Laminate Tubeless ClincherShimano Road Tubeless and tube compatible rimCarbon laminate construction rim (~420g)Off-set rim with wide flange hub100% Ti FH body1454gMSRP $1499.99last_img read more

Overland Park to explore ‘dockless’ bike-sharing program — but other cities’ experiences provide cautionary tales

first_imgIn Washington D.C., some residents have complained that the “dockless” bike sharing program clutters the sidewalks. Photo credit Daniel Lobo.A bike-rental system similar to Zipcar is on its way to Johnson County next year. But will the three cities pursuing it be able to avoid the nightmare of stolen, abandoned and vandalized bicycles that have plagued other cities where the rental programs have been used?With a nod toward the upcoming Bike to Work Week, Overland Park on Monday became the latest city to express interest in “dockless” bike sharing. The city council approved $24,980 to hire a consultant to look into what has become a popular transportation option in other cities.The system used in Kansas City, Mo., operated by BCycle has docks for the ride-sharing bikes.Meanwhile Lenexa, Olathe and Johnson County Park and Recreation District will begin dockless sharing next year in under a grant from Mid America Regional Council. That system, which will also include Kansas City, Kansas, is being run by BikeWalkKC.Dockless bike sharing is different from the BCycle rental offered now in downtown Kansas City. With that system, bicycles can only be checked out from and returned to bike stations at set locations.The newer dockless systems break the bikes free from the stations. They allow riders to find the nearest bike with a phone app, for example, pay with a credit card on file and receive a code to unlock the bike’s wheel. The bike can then be left at locations other than the place where they were picked up.Dockless bike systems are big in China and have been implemented in some U.S. cities. But the internet is full of stories of dockless bike sharing gone wrong. Because they are not locked into immovable stations, the bicycles in those systems are vulnerable to vandalism and theft.A bike sharing system in France had to be shut down, for example, after youths took to vandalizing the bikes as a form of amusement. Abandoned bikes have been found in rivers and in trees or have simply gone missing. Residents have complained of unused bikes littering sidewalks and lawns.In China, the problem has been oversupply of bicycles. The result has been mountainous piles of discarded bicycles.A lot of the problems are due to the business model of bike sharing companies, said Eric Vaughan of BikeWalkKC. For-profit companies, often from China, offer cities a cheap price and bring in a lot of low-quality bikes, he said.“They’re not sustainable,” he said. “They’re backed by venture capitalists trying to grab market share and drive out the competition.” Later, they’ll increase the price, he added.Vaughan believes the safeguards in BikeWalkKC’s system will work for Johnson County entities that are participating in the grant.The non-profit’s dockless system will have a lot of built-in security to avoid the kinds of problems seen in other cities, Vaughan said. Riders will be required to lock bikes to something stationary and bike racks around the city will be located and geo-fenced as return areas. Returning a bike outside of the return area will cost a little extra, and the trip won’t be considered closed for payment purposes unless the bike is locked up.In addition, the bikes will have locators and accelerometers that will let BCycle know if a locked-up bike is being carted away.The non-profit system also will also have the advantage of being more regional, he said, because riders will be able to return bikes at the BCycle stations as well.“Those problems are what we’re trying to prevent, so it’s done in a responsible way,” he said. “The cities told us they want responsible dockless bikeshare.”The drawback of the non-profit system is that it runs on grant money. Once grants run out, cities will have to decide whether to continue the programs and how to fund them.For that reason, Overland Park decided to study the idea a little longer before making a commitment, said Brian Shields, city traffic engineer.The city was approached by three vendors offering dockless bike sharing, he said. Toole Design Group was hired to look into best practices and come up with recommendations for the city before any decision is made.last_img read more

After coming in as a highly touted recruit, Casey Mittelstadt has proven himself at the Division I level

first_imgAfter coming in as a highly touted recruit, Casey Mittelstadt has proven himself at the Division I levelMittelstadt is the highest Gophers NHL draft pick in 11 years.Jack RodgersForward Casey Mittelstadt follows the puck in the Gophers’ game against Penn State on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 3M Arena at Mariucci. The Gophers won 6-3. Drew CoveNovember 2, 2017Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintOne of the Gophers’ top scoring threats this season has been a 18-year-old freshman.Forward Casey Mittelstadt is second on the team in scoring with seven points this season. The Gophers are 5-3-0 now in the early season, and the team faces off against Michigan State this weekend, their first nonranked opponent.  “[I’m] just learning little things away from the puck, and a little bit of stuff defensively,” Mittelstadt said. “I think I’ve definitely improved, and [I’ll] try to continue to grow.”The freshman had an interesting year before coming to Minnesota.After playing both high school hockey for Eden Prairie and in the United States Hockey league for the Green Bay Gamblers last season, the forward’s success in both leagues led him to be drafted eighth overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft by the Buffalo Sabres.Now, Mittelstadt has come to his first year of college hockey and has already made an impact.“He’s a guy that needs the puck on his stick,” said freshman Scott Reedy. “[I’m] finding him in the open areas and getting open because I know he can find me whether he’s looking at me or not.” Mittelstadt has also been on the most effective line for the team.The line with Reedy, Mittelstadt and sophomore Rem Pitlick is reponsible for seven goals and 10 assists. Beyond the statistics, they have controlled the puck and kept pressure in the offensive zone when other lines haven’t. “I think we’re still a work in progress,” Reedy said. “We have some natural chemistry, [and we] complement each other’s game pretty well.”Mittelstadt is the highest drafted Gophers skater since 2006. Although he was drafted to the pros, he is still figuring out the college game and is he is only seven games into his collegiate career.“You can’t teach the skill, you can’t teach the speed, you can’t teach the hockey sense,” said head coach Don Lucia. “Strength is going to come, because he’s more than willing to work at it, which is nice with him, he’s more competitive than I thought.”Much was made of Mittelstadt’s strength coming into the season, but Lucia said Mittelstadt’s shoulder was out of alignment when he got to Minnesota, and strength and conditioning coach Cal Dietz has worked with the Eden Prairie, Minnesota native on shoulder motion and getting stronger.Minnesota’s own strength this season has been scoring from the younger players, and according to Lucia, Mittelstadt’s responsibility and scoring affects the older ones.“I don’t think it made it harder on him, I think it made it harder on the veterans,” Lucia said. “Our veteran forwards, they’re the ones that have to start scoring for us.”Lucia said his older players aren’t scoring, but the production from Mittelstadt and the rest of his line has produced good results for the Gophers so far.Mittelstadt shows it when he isn’t happy with his own play, and Lucia said that indicates his will.“He gets upset, you hear him. He vocalizes [when he’s mad at himself],” Lucia said. “He has high expectations for himself, but he’s a freshman.”last_img read more

NEWS SCAN: H5N1 in Japan and Bangladesh, Tamiflu-resistant H1N1, new malaria-carrying mosquito, new C diff drug

first_imgFeb 4, 2011H5N1 hits more poultry in Japan, BangladeshJapanese officials have confirmed an H5N1 avian influenza outbreak at a poultry farm in Oita prefecture, raising the number of recently affected prefectures to five, Kyodo News reported today. Authorities culled about 8,100 chickens at the farm in Oita city, along with 5,000 at a meat processing center in Usa. About 2,000 chickens from the farm had been sent to the processing center. Oita prefecture, in southwestern Japan, borders Miyazaki prefecture, which has recently reported outbreaks at seven farms.Elsewhere, the H5N1 virus has struck two more poultry farms in Bangladesh. An outbreak at a commercial farm near Narayangonj district in Dhaka division that was detected on Jan 24 killed 1,500 poultry, and officials culled nearly 8,500 more birds to stop the spread of the disease, according to a report yesterday from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). Yesterday livestock officials in the Kishoreganj district of Dhaka division culled 7,000 chickens at a commercial farm after tests on birds that died suddenly revealed avian flu, the Daily Star, a newspaper based in Dhaka, reported today.Feb 3 OIE reportFeb 4 Daily Star storyMost drug-resistant novel H1N1 cases in Japan linked to antiviral useThe vast majority of oseltamivir (Tamiflu)-resistant pandemic 2009 H1N1 cases in Japan were linked to taking the drug, with little human-to-human transmission of resistant viruses, says a study published today in Emerging Infectious Diseases. Researchers analyzed 4,307 clinical specimens using neuraminidase sequencing or inhibition assays and found 61 oseltamivir-resistant cases. Of those, 55 patients (90%) had received the drug, 45 as treatment and 10 for prevention. The authors said this likely means that most cases emerged sporadically because of selection pressure. They found no evidence of sustained transmission of resistant viruses but reported two suspected instances of human-to-human transmission.Feb 4 Emerg Infect Dis studyNew mosquito subspecies seen as potential malaria spreaderScientists have discovered a new subspecies of mosquito in Burkina Faso that is susceptible to the malaria parasite and prefers to live outside, thus potentially circumventing traditional malaria-control measures like mosquito netting. The team of researchers collected Anopheles gambiae larvae and adult mosquitoes—known to carry Plasmodium falciparum, which transmits malaria to people—in the west African nation, according to their study published today in Science. They found that 57% of larvae collected from puddles were genetically very distinct from adult mosquitoes trapped in homes in nearby villages and that cross-breeding between the groups was unlikely. This is significant, because much malaria prevention occurs in homes, with insecticide spraying and use of bed nets. In addition, when the larvae of the new subspecies—christened Goundry after a local village—were fed blood containing P falciparum, 58% became infected, compared with 35% for the home dwellers. Co-author Kenneth Vernick of the Pasteur Institute in Paris said this finding suggests the Goundry subgroup may contribute considerably to malaria transmission to humans, according to an accompanying Science news story. However, the researchers didn’t catch adult Goundry mosquitoes, so they don’t yet know whether they bite people.Feb 4 Science abstractFeb 4 Science news story on the studyNew drug helps prevent C difficile re-infectionsA new antibiotic cures Clostridium difficile infection as effectively as current treatment and prevents recurrence better, according to a study published yesterday in the New England Journal of Medicine. In a phase 3 trial conducted by Canadian and US researchers, 629 patients were randomly assigned to treatment with fidaxomicin, the new drug, or vancomycin, a common drug of choice. Fidaxomicin had a clinical cure rate of 88.2%, compared with 85.8% for vancomycin by one measure (modified intention-to-treat analysis), and a cure rate of 92.1% versus 89.8% for vancomycin by another (per-protocol analysis). Patients taking the new drug also had a significantly lower rate of recurrence of the infection, in both the modified intention-to-treat analysis (15.4% to 25.3%, P=0.005) and the per-protocol analysis (13.3% to 24.0%, P=0.004). “Anybody who knows C difficile recognizes that recurrences are the major problem with this disease,” said co-author Dr. Mark A. Miller of the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal in a press release, pointing out how difficult recurrences are to treat. “Anything that can reduce the recurrence rate, especially as dramatically as fidaxomicin, is a very important milestone in the treatment of C difficile.” In recent years C difficile infections have become more common and increasingly virulent, according to the study’s authors.Feb 3 N Engl J Med abstractFeb 2 press release on the studylast_img read more
