Bianchi’s New Infinito CV Borrows From Nasa, introduces Countervail for Cycling

first_imgSadly, there might not be a space program any more, but that isn’t stopping Bianchi from using some space age technologies in their new Infinito CV Endurance Road bike. Just days before the legendary Paris-Roubaix – one of the toughest races in the world on both bike and rider, Bianchi launched their new bike so it can be used by Vacansoleil-DCM’s Jaun Antonio Flecha on Sunday. Utilizing a proven viscoelastic material named Countervail, the Infinito CV is said to immediately cancel road vibration.More on the first use of Countervail for cycling after the break. Collaborating directly with the USA’s Material sciences Corporation, Bianchi figured out a way to embed the Countervail material within the carbon layup of the frame. Just how much viscoelastic material is embedded in the frame and what effect it has on the weight is unknown, but Bianchi claims there is enough to immediately cancel road vibration felt through the frame. Viscoelastic material has been used for padding, body armor, and other uses in cycling industry before but using the term viscoelastic is kind of like saying styrofoam. There are many different types of materials, each with different characteristics.Countervail has already been used in the ski and snowboardindustry with Wagner Ski’s working it into the design of their skis to improve the flex and damping characteristics. Originally developed to prevent flutter in the carbon fiber control panels of supersonic air craft, Countervail is essentially a sheet of viscoelastic polymer cloth that has the carbon fiber strands woven through it – so it is able to be built in with very little additional weight.Bianchi’s CEO, Bob Ippolito says, “We are really excited to introduce a revolutionary vibration cancelling technology for cycling with our new Infinito CV model. Thanks to our close collaboration with MSC’s engineers we developed a new exclusive patented material technology that will deliver better performance with less fatigue and more control.”Thomas Cassin, the President and CEO of MSC added, “MSC and Bianchi have entered into a license and trademark use agreement enabling Bianchi to utilize the Countervail patented technology and registered trademark within the bicycle industry. MSC has collaborated with Bianchi to incorporate Countervail technology in Bianchi Bicycles, starting with the new Infinito CV model announced today. ”Not only does the Countervail cancel road vibration, but supposedly it also increases frame rigidity. So – stiffer frame, smoother ride? Sounds straight out of science fiction. The aerodynamically shaped Infinito CV will carry on Bianchi’s Coast to Coast (C2C) geometry designed specifically for endurance road riding with a taller, more upright seating position.Perhaps the biggest bombshell of the whole release? The fact that the Infinito CV will be available in a hydraulic disc brake version. Details are slim, but apparently the disc version will be built on a 135mm rear spacing that will accept 140-160mm rotors.last_img read more

Shimano 105 R7000 road group trickles tech down, gets new 105 disc brakes

first_imgThe new flat mount calipers are not a huge departure from the previous non-series RS-505 calipers that had previously been grouped with 105. They do get a slightly slimmer profile that is said to drop a couple grams while retaining the same braking, but also opt for more simple brake pads without cooling fins. And of course now they get silver or black options and 105 branding to match the rest of the group.The rotors themselves aren’t especially new – using the existing RT70 rotors from mountain SLX, that pair an alloy Centerlock carrier to a stainless steel/aluminum/stainless IceTech sandwiched braking surface. With R7000 though, a new 140mm version of the rotor has been added. Shimano also says the new rotors are “UCI-compliant” for not having 90° sharp edges on the outside of the rotor, although they don’t adopt the more closed cooing fins of the Dura-Ace and Ultegra variants.105 rim brake dual control levers & brakesInside both the new rim brake (ST-R7000) and disc brake (ST-R7020/25) dual control levers, the shifting internals were updated for faster, lighter shifts and a shortened lever stroke.Those pair to new rim brake calipers with improved performance, increased tire clearance, and the option for traditional single bolt mount or direct mount variants.105 mechanical front & rear derailleurs The 105 front derailleur was already quietly updated last summer with a new pivoting design that copied Dura-Ace R9100 in order to get rid of the long lever arm to improve tire clearance, especially on bikes with short chainstays & wider, gravel-friendly tires. That new compact design (which skipped over last summer’s Ultegra update) carries over to R7000, with its easy to use cable tension adjustment replacing a barrel adjuster.The 105 rear derailleur moves to the low-profile Shadow design adapted from mountain bikes, already found on Dura-Ace & Ultegra. This design tucks the rear derailleur more out of harm’s way (~12mm more inside) in the event of a crash, and adds Direct Mount hanger compatability. The new derailleur comes in two different cage lengths to work with either 11-25 to 11-30 cassettes (short cage – SS) or 11-28 to 11-34 cassettes (long cage – GS) much like Ultegra R8000.105 cranksets & cassettes105 also joins the other top road groups in offering a middle crankset gearing option, as well as slightly moving the inner ring to make for smoother & quieter operation while cross chained. Now 105 buyers can pick from standard road 53/39, semi-compact 52/36, or compact road 50/34 chainring combinations.On the cassette side, 105 adds a new CS-R7000 11-30T option to the previous 11-28, 11-32 & 12-25 options. And there’s a new budget 11-speed CS-HG700-11 cassette targeting road plus, gravel, cross & adventure riding with an 11-34T range.Pricing & AvailabilityThe new Shimano 105 R7000 components will be available starting in June 2018. The complete rim brake groupset is said to retail for $745/650€, with the disc brake group from $1130/890€.USD pricing breakdownST-R7020 hydraulic disc brake dual control lever – $310 each (lever, caliper & hose)ST-R7025 Small Hand hydraulic disc brake dual control lever – $315 eachBR-R7070 hydraulic disc brake calipers:  front – $70, rear $65RT70-SS 140mm rotors – $34 eachST-R7000 rim brake dual control levers – $235 per pairBR-R7000 standard rim brakes – $95 per pairBR-R7010 direct mount brakes – $53-58 eachFD-R7000 front derailleur – $40RD-R7000 rear derailleurs – $53-58FC-R7000 crankset – $160CS-R7000 cassettes: 12-25T, 11-28T, 11-30T, 11-32T – $51CS-HG700 wide range cassette: $56RS370 tubeless aluminum wheelsAt the same time as the new budget road group, Shimano also has slipped out a new wider rim 700c, E-Thru axle, tubeless-ready, disc-specific WH-RS370-TL aluminum wheelset designed for 28-38mm tires. It has a claimed weight of 1900g for the pair and aretail price of 290€.Bike.Shimano.com In a move as reliable as clockwork, Shimano trickles down the same road racing tech developed first in their latest Dura-Ace, then Ultegra, now to the more affordable 105. Promising much of the performance of those more racing focused groupsets, 105 continues to be the value leader of Shimano’s road groups. You still won’t find Di2 at this level, but you get much of the same shifting and braking at a much more attainable pricepoint. The new 105 now gets its own disc brake components with an updated look, that once again comes in both stealthy black or more classic silver finishes.Shimano 105 R7000 11 speed road bike groupsetWhile many of us may pine for a bike spec’ed with a Dura-Ace drivetrain, most bike build budgets stop quick with R9100’s cheapest group selling for over $2000. But at less than half of that you can get 105, and if you are willing to wait a couple of seasons, Shimano regularly trickles down much of their race-ready tech to what amounts to the entry-level of their top road components.The new R7000 generation of 105 gets updates across the board, and a new look that is meant to follow in the footsteps of Dura-Ace and Ultegra. Shimano says that most 105 buyers aren’t necessarily looking to race, but want performance & reliability for all around road riding.The biggest two changes to the new group are a more ergonomic set of hydraulic disc brake dual control levers, and the move to a Shadow rear derailleur with slightly wider gear ratios.105 hydraulic dual control levers & flat mount disc brakesThe new 105 hydraulic levers will be a welcome departure for many from the previous RS-505 generation that 105 was assigned. While those older bulbous levers didn’t feel bad in the hand for most cyclists, the large lever bodies’ aesthetics were quite divisive. The ST-R7020 hydraulic dual control levers are said to take their more ergonomic shape directly from Ultegra’;s levers. They also offer the same updated reach adjustment as those levers  to better fir a wide range of rider hand sizes.Since the hydro levers are a bit bulkier than a rim brake version, Shimano also even offers a second, completely separate ST-R7025 version optimized for cyclists with even smaller hands than the standard reach adjust range. These smaller dual control levers angle their uniquely shaped lever blades closer to the bar, and out at a slightly wider angle to still allow space around the smaller levers for a rider’s fingers without interference in the drops.last_img read more

Rivalry game against Rockhurst Friday adds to lively atmosphere of annual Lancer Day festivities

first_imgThe Lancers entered the field at Rockhurst for the first time since 1982 last September. On Friday, they’ll host the Hawlets at SM North District Stadium.Friday is going to be a big one for members of the Shawnee Mission East community.The annual Lancer Day Parade, traditionally held the afternoon before the football team’s first home game, is a significant enough deal as it is. Couple that with the fact that the 2-0 Lancers will be facing off against arch-rival Rockhurst for just the second time in three decades, and you’ve got the makings for high school hysteria.Last year, the Lancers took on the Hawklets in football for the first time since 1982, visiting the lively environs of Rockhursts’s Vincent P. Dasta Memorial Stadium. They got off to a dreary start, botching a pitch on their opening possession that led to an early Hawklets touchdown. Though the Lancers went on to turn the ball over five more times that night, they mounted a comeback that had them in a position to tie the game in the closing minutes — falling just short and losing 26-20.Lancers head coach Dustin Delaney says that if his team hopes to win the back half of this highly anticipated home-and-home series, they’ll need to play a much cleaner game.“They’re good everywhere, they’re deep all over,” Delaney said. “They don’t make a lot of mistakes. Last year we made a whole bunch of mistakes. Our guys know that if we’re going to win this, we have to play clean.”Though Delaney says the team and staff approach Rockhurst just like they do every opponent, he knows that the atmosphere will be more spirited than an average game.“I think we could play them in any sport, and it would be a fun rivalry, because our guys all know each other,” he said. “It is fun for the community to have a rivalry game like that. It’s as close to a big playoff game as you can get in the regular season.”Folks interested in a festive atmosphere won’t have to wait until the 7 p.m. kickoff at SM North District Stadium, though.The annual Lancer Day Parade will start making its way down Mission Road from 75th Street at 2 p.m. The parade will feature floats from SM East student clubs and sports teams, as well as the marching band and ROTC color guard. The event culminates with a rally underneath the Village Shops clocktower.A couple of updates on this year’s parade:Parents of young children take note: The good people at Colonial Church, at 71st Street and Mission, will be opening up their restrooms and water fountains to the public during the parade.SM East senior Ava Backer has organized an effort to raise funds for Rockport-Fulton High School in Texas, which was massively damaged by Hurricane Harvey. Students will be carrying large green neon water jugs along the parade route to collect donations for the school. Backer’s group will also be accepting donations for Rockport at the entrance of the game Friday night, where there will also be a table manned by the pep club to collect school supplies for the school.Enjoy, Lancerdom.Students packed around the clocktower as principal John McKinney riled up the crowd during the 2016 Lancer Day rally at the Village Shops.last_img read more

More bang for your (internet) marketing buck

first_imgWe’re now working with our clients to update their websites to become more in tune with what consumers need in 2014.  One question they often ask is: “do we get anything from our website?” In most surveys we have done in regard to the sites, the overwhelming response to “why do you visit the website?” is simply to login to online banking.Lately, we’ve been producing more custom content for client websites that members will find interesting or educational. Some of it is pop culture related with a financial tie in; other content is focused solely on basic financial education.We’ve also focused many ad buys away from traditional media and more toward internet marketing. Not just online web ads, but we’ve seen great successes come from utilizing Pandora and retargeting. Wait, what? Retargeting?Retargeting, also known as remarketing, is a form of online advertising that can help you keep your brand in front of bounced traffic after they leave your website. For most websites, only 2% of web traffic converts to a “sale” on the first visit. Retargeting is a tool designed to help brands reach the other 98% of users who don’t convert right away.How does it work? You start by placing a small piece of code on your website. The code, or pixel, is not noticeable and won’t affect your site’s performance. However, every time a new visitor comes to your site, the code drops an anonymous browser cookie. Later, when your website visitors browse other sites throughout the internet, the cookie will let your retargeting provider know when to serve ads. It ensures that your ads are directed only to people who have previously visited your site.Internet shoppers are fickle; they like to window-shop. Whether it’s someone taking a look at your loan rates, or a long-time member wanting a new loan, retargeting is a great opportunity to make sure when the window shopping is done that YOU get the business! continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Zika virus spreads to more countries

first_imgIn quickly evolving developments, more countries in the Americas reported Zika virus cases, as Brazil—one of the hardest hit countries—reported more microcephaly cases, which health officials suspect might be related to infections in pregnant women.In a pair of updates, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) weighed in on the spread of mosquito-borne Zika virus to more countries and the possible connection to complications, which may also include Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and congenital neurological malformations.Also, the World Health Organization (WHO) said it has been notified of Zika virus infections in Guatemala and El Salvador, with infectious disease news sources flagging foreign language media reports suggesting that illnesses have been detected in Paraguay and Venezuela.Zika virus infections, spread by Aedes mosquitoes, have rapidly spread to new parts of the Americas since 2014 and continues to sicken people in other parts of the world. Symptoms are similar to dengue fever, but usually milder, lasting 4 to 7 days.Growing list of Zika detectionsThe WHO said in separate statements that it was notified of a locally acquired case in Guatemala, a patient who got sick on Nov 11, and reports from El Salvador of three locally acquired cases. In both instances, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lab in Fort Collins confirmed the findings.It said officials are taking prevention and control steps and are looking for additional cases. The WHO urged countries in the Americas to maintain the capacity to detect Zika cases and to prepare their health systems to take on more burden from the disease.In an Nov 27 epidemiological update, the ECDC said the first two locally acquired cases have been reported from Mexico, one from Chiapas state, in the southeastern part of the country, and the other from Nuevo Leon state, located in the northeastern region. Aside from the already mentioned countries, other locations reporting cases this year include Colombia, Suriname, Cape Verde, Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, and Indonesia.In addition, ProMED Mail, the reporting service of the International Society for Infectious Diseases, flagged a media report from Paraguay that said health officials have detected six locally acquired Zika infections. Meanwhile, FluTrackers, an infectious disease news message board, yesterday posted a media report from Venezuela that said 17 cases have been detected.More microcephaly cases reportedThe WHO is now reporting 739 microcephaly cases in newborns from northeastern Brazil, affecting 9 of the country’s states, according to a Nov 27 statement. The WHO first acknowledged Brazil’s unusual spike in cases on Nov 20, when 399 cases from 7 states were reported.In its latest statement, the WHO investigations are underway into the cases, which include one death. It said technical experts have been deployed to help Brazil’s health ministry with arbovirus virology, epidemiology, and disease surveillance.Though the cause of the sharp increase hasn’t been determined, the WHO said it wanted to raise awareness and asks other countries to be on alert for similar increases.According to a Nov 27 ECDC assessment, Brazilian authorities have confirmed Zika virus RNA in amniotic fluid in two women who carried babies with microcephaly. Both women had symptoms consistent with Zika virus infection during their pregnancies. It added that the significance of the findings are still under investigation.Also, the ECDC added that the Brazilian media has reported seven GBS cases linked to Zika virus illness, and it cited an earlier medical journal report of an increase in congenital nervous system malformations in newborns in French Polynesia following a Zika virus outbreak in 2013 and 2014.In a risk assessment a few days earlier, the ECDC said there is only ecological evidence between the outbreak and microcephaly, and though an association can’t be ruled out, further investigations are needed. It added that microcephaly can be caused by a variety of factors, but Flavivirus infections are known to potentially cause premature birth, congenital defects, and microcephaly.See also:Nov 27 WHO statement on Zika virus in GuatemalaNov 27 WHO statement on Zika virus in El SalvadorNov 27 ProMED Mail postNov 29 FluTrackers postNov 27 WHO update on microcephaly casesNov 27 ECDC epidemiological updateNov 25 ECDC risk assessmentlast_img read more

EPA: $44 Million To Reduce Diesel Engines Emissions

first_imgEPA is soliciting applications nationwide for projects that significantly reduce diesel emissions and exposure, especially from fleets operating at goods movements facilities in areas designated as having poor air quality. Applicants may request funding to upgrade or replace diesel-powered buses, trucks, marine engines, locomotives and nonroad equipment with newer, cleaner technologies. Priority for funding will also be given to projects that engage and benefit local communities and applicants that demonstrate their ability to promote and continue efforts to reduce emissions after the project has ended. For more information and to access the Request for Applications, visit www.epa.gov/cleandiesel/clean-diesel-national-grants.For more information on the National Clean Diesel campaign, visit www.epa.gov/cleandiesel. Diesel-powered engines move approximately 90% of the nation’s freight tonnage, and today nearly all highway freight trucks, locomotives, and commercial marine vessels are powered by diesel engines. “Modernizing our nation’s aging fleet of diesel-powered vehicles is an important part of the Trump Administration’s plan to further reduce harmful emissions and guide counties and States from nonattainment, into attainment,” EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said. “Our hope is that through these upgrades and ongoing efforts, communities will continue to see improved health outcomes for their residents, ensuring all Americans breathe cleaner air.”  Under this competition, EPA anticipates awarding between 40 and 60 assistance agreements. Applicants must request funding from the EPA regional office which covers the geographic project location. The maximum amount of federal funding that may be requested per application varies by EPA Region.Region 1 (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont) will accept proposals requesting up to $1,000,000 in grant funds. Region 2 (New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands) will accept proposals requesting up to $2,500,000 in grant funds.Region 3 (Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia) will accept proposals requesting up to $2,500,000 in grant funds. Region 4 (Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee) will accept proposals requesting up to $2,000,000 in grant funds.  Region 5 (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin) will accept proposals requesting up to $3,000,000 in grant funds. Region 6 (Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas) will accept proposals requesting up to $2,500,000 in grant funds.Region 7 (Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska) will accept proposals requesting up to $1,500,000 in grant funds.  Region 8 (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming) will accept proposals requesting up to $2,600,000 in grant funds.  Region 9 (Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands) will accept proposals requesting up to $4,000,000 in grant funds. Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington) will accept proposals requesting up to $1,000,000 in grant funds. EPA News: EPA anticipates releasing a separate Tribal DERA grant funding opportunity in early 2020.center_img Background Since the first year of the DERA program in 2008, EPA has competitively awarded over 790 grants and 420 rebates across the country. Many of these projects funded cleaner diesel engines that operate in economically disadvantaged communities whose residents suffer from higher-than-average instances of asthma, heart and lung disease. Eligible applicants include regional, state, local or tribal agencies, or port authorities with jurisdiction over transportation or air quality. Nonprofit organizations may apply if they provide pollution reduction or educational services to diesel fleet owners or have, as their principal purpose, the promotion of transportation or air quality. Applicants may apply until Feb. 26, 2020. EPA anticipates awarding approximately $44 million in Diesel Emission Reduction Program (DERA) grant funding to eligible applicants. WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the availability of grant funding to implement projects aimed at reducing emissions from the nation’s existing fleet of older diesel engines. last_img read more
