NAHBS 2013: Kirklee Lightens Road Bike by Molding More Tubes In-House

first_imgKirklee has developed new tooling and molds to create their own seatstays, chainstays and dropouts, giving them more control over the layup for custom builds and more modern look. The side benefit is that it sheds a few grams, too.They’ve been making their own top and downtubes for three years. The headtube is Dedacciai, but they’re looking to make that soon, too. They started making the bladder molded stays for their 29er in January 2012, which served as proof of concept that gave them the confidence to make their own for the road bike. The result is a bike that’s even more individual than other handbuilt carbon bikes.Check that out, plus updates to the 29er and their usual display of beautiful custom paint jobs, below… Their mountain bike has a layer of carbon on the outside of the edges of the seatstays at 90° to offer more protection against trail debris, but the sides facing the wheel are left alone to save weight.The dropouts are bigger, and they angle the carbon tube rather than have an additional piece that bolts on to adjust the angle (like on the road bikes). These will likely form the basis for their disc brake cyclocross frames soon. The dropouts, which include three pieces counting the derailleur hanger, are machined in house and are drilled out for internal Di2 wiring and machined on the inside to save weight. They went with a metal dropout because its easier to repair and replace, and you can slam the wheel in without fear of damaging it. The design will have clearance for a 28c tire, and they’re reworking the design of the chainstays to fit the Zipp 303 Firecrest. The profile will mimic the curve of those rims, which should mean it’ll fit just about any wheel out there.New seatstay and chainstay design on the right, compared to the original monostay on the left.The change in stays from the ENVE mono stay they used previously saved about 20g, with much of that savings coming from the reduced amount of bonding agent required because the pieces are designed to fit together as a unit rather than taking miscellaneous parts and making them work together.Each seatstay is about 36g and the chainstay is 90g, both for the heavier duty layup builder Brad Cason offers. They could go lighter for smaller riders.The carbon wrap at the joints have been changed up to use less wrap. They’re shorter, not extending as far into each tube, and they no longer put material at 0° and 90° since they weren’t really providing any benefit compared to the angled plies. Essentially, he removed any redundant plies. This chopped about 30g off the front triangle, yielding a frame that’s overall about 50g lighter than before.Cason says he’s just finishing up a 50cm frame that’s coming in at 780g before paint. Typically, his frames come in around 880g for a 56 with minimal paint. Frameset (w/ fork and Cane Creek 110 headset) is $5,200 full custom.last_img read more

Why a Messy Workspace Undermines Your Persistence

first_imgHarvard Business Review:The disorganized accumulation of papers and coffee cups scattered across your desk may help you project the impression that you’re working at full throttle, but in fact it’s probably dragging you down. We’ve found that people sitting at messy desks are less efficient, less persistent, and more frustrated and weary than those at neat desks.But wait, you may say. No one who has worked in a busy office for more than a week can possibly keep a neat desk — the work comes at you too fast. Or you may say that you like your mess, that it’s as comforting as a little nest. To which we say yes, it can be challenging to keep a desk neat. And yes, a mess can be comforting, even freeing, in a sense: You don’t have to worry about things becoming disordered, because they’re already disordered.But look at the data:In one of our experiments, more than 100 undergraduates were exposed either to an uncluttered space or to a work area where papers, folders, and cups were scattered over shelves, a desk, and the floor, like so:Read the whole story: Harvard Business Review More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

NCAA Tournament Capsules

first_imgLOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Two wins by No. 14 seeds. Two sons winning games for their father-coaches. The team nobody thought belonged in the field winning a game. The Big 12 starting 0-3.Just another opening day of the NCAA Tournament.UAB 60, Iowa St. 59William Lee scored the last four points for the 14th-seeded Blazers in their upset win Thursday.The Blazers (20-15) came in as one of the youngest teams in the field and with nobody having played in this tournament before. They wound up winning the program’s first NCAA game since 2005.The third-seeded Cyclones (25-9) couldn’t hold onto a 55-51 lead with 3:13 left as the Blazers outscored Iowa State 9-4 down the stretch.Robert Brown had 21 points and Lee finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Blazers who dominated the boards 52-37, including 19 on the offensive glass.Morris finished with 15 points for the Cyclones, who were making a school-record fourth straight tournament appearance.UCLA 60, SMU 59Bryce Alford made four 3-pointers in the final 3:40, his last on a rare goaltending call with 13 seconds remaining, to push 11th-seeded UCLA to the upset.All of Alford’s points came on nine long-range shots but his last attempt was the most debated as his shot from the left side was hit by SMU’s Yanick Moreira before it reached the rim. Officials awarded Alford, the son of coach Steve Alford, the basket, to the disbelief of SMU players and coach Larry Brown.The sixth-seeded Mustangs (27-7) had two shots to win in the final seconds, but Nic Moore missed a 3-pointer and then a 2-point attempt that sent the Bruins (21-13) into a wild celebration.Norman Powell added 19 points for UCLA, the team many felt didn’t even belong in the field of 68.Moore had 24 points, including six 3s.Notre Dame 69, Northeastern 65PITTSBURGH (AP) — Zach Auguste scored 25 points, Jerian Grant added 17 and Notre Dame dodged a scare trying to erase its futile NCAA Tournament history.The third-seeded Fighting Irish (30-5) returned to the tournament after a one-year absence. They have traditionally struggled in the tournament under coach Mike Brey. They made only one Sweet 16 since 2001.Scott Eatherton had 18 points and David Walker had 15 for 14th-seeded Northeastern (23-12) which gave the Irish fits and threatened to keep Notre Dame’s March malaise going.With a chance to tie it at 67-all with less than 10 seconds left, Quincy Ford lost control of the ball — and the Huskies lost their chance at pulling off the shocker.Auguste, who made 10 of 14 shots, sealed it with two free throws.Butler 56, Texas 48PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kellen Dunham scored 20 points, including a pivotal 3-pointer with 1:18 to play, to lift sixth-seeded Butler (23-10).The Longhorns (20-14) added to a miserable day for the vaunted Big 12. Texas joined Baylor and Iowa State, both No. 3 seeds, as early tournament exits.Jonathan Holmes led the Longhorns with 15 points and Isaiah Taylor added 14 but Texas shot just 34 percent from the field and turned it over 15 times while failing to make it beyond the first weekend of the NCAAs for the seventh straight year.A pullup jumper by Taylor drew Texas within 44-43 with 2:42 to play but the Longhorns never got closer. Dunham knocked down a free throw and then hit a 3-pointer from the right wing to make it 48-43.Georgia St. 57, Baylor 56JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — R.J. Hunter kept firing away, eventually lifting Georgia State over Baylor and knocking his father right off his seat.Hunter’s 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds remaining capped a comeback from a 12-point deficit and lifted the 14th-seeded Panthers over the third-seeded Bears.With Ron Hunter working the sideline in a rolling chair less than a week after tearing his left Achilles tendon celebrating Georgia State winning the Sun Belt Conference championship, R.J. shrugged off a poor shooting performance to come through when his team needed him most.Baylor (24-10), which got 18 points and 15 rebounds from reserve Taurean Prince, did not score after going up 56-44 on two free throws with 2:54 remaining.The junior guard’s steal and layup trimmed Baylor’s lead to 56-53, and he drained an NBA-range 3 for the win after the Bears’ Kenny Chery missed the front end of a 1-and-1 that could have put the game away for the Bears.Hunter finished with 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting.Arizona 93, Texas Southern 72PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 23 points, 16 in the first half, along with 10 rebounds for second-seeded Arizona.Pac-12 freshman of the year Stanley Johnson added 22 points for the balanced Wildcats (32-3), who led by as many as 27 points.Madarious Gibbs had 15 points for 15th-seeded Texas Southern (22-13), which won an automatic bid as the winner of the Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament.Brandon Ashley added 14 points for Arizona, which won its 12th straight.Texas Southern was making its second straight appearance in the tournament.last_img read more
