Not your dad’s indoor training

October 29th, 2018 by / In Apparel and Gear

I’m no expert when it comes to training on a bike or indoors, but I do both. In Montana, for a lot of the year, riding indoors is the only option unless you are really hard-core. For years, I just blew off the winter and did a little running, Nordic skiing, fat biking, or, more […]

“Simplicity is not the absence of clutter”

October 21st, 2018 by / In Tech Engineering meeting

By: Jeff Wyatt – Pinion Engineering My first meeting with Carl was technical discussions, angles, lengths, diameters, widths – a lot of detailed sketching – discussion. However, it was what was unsaid that could be heard clearly that day from all – the frame was to be on the traditional side of the aesthetic. The challenge then: […]

April 4th, 2018 by / In Tech Tricoque

Because I just learned how to add the (™) I feel compelled to trademark something. Seems the industry likes to throw around the term “monocoque” quite a bit so I’m going to mix it up. At Pursuit we employ Tricoque™ technology. That’s two better than monocoque. I kid, but in all seriousness we do build […]

The ABD’s of Composite Laminates

April 2nd, 2018 by / In Tech

It has been a while, but don’t worry, my students have been giving me plenty of blank stares in the meantime.  Seriously, I am teaching a course this semester called Design of Machine Elements which I consider a key opportunity for students to bridge their engineering knowledge toward their upcoming professional career.  Given the course […]

Fibers That Play Together Stay Together

January 19th, 2018 by / In Tech

This is my 3rd installment of the four part series on carbon fiber composite materials. This one is on the matrix that holds it all together.
