Cervelo R5 review


Over just 19 years, Cervelo has carved itself a cycling heritage almost as rich as Dan Martin’s – the Garmin Sharp rider’s parents are former British pro Neil Martin and Stephen Roche’s sister, so cycling is in his genes. At the time of writing, Martin is recovering from a broken collarbone sustained in the Giro but when he recovers this is what he’ll be riding.Highs: Exclusivity, pro build, epic all-ro ...

Tour de France chronicle: The life of a TdF super fan

Source: SBNation

It's possible to chase the Tour de France from town to town. You just have to be willing to make a few extreme sacrifices. A Belgian fan looked at me incredulously when I told her I didn't know who Marcus Burghardt was and why it was a big deal that she got a picture with him. I later found out that Burghardt is a German cyclist of modest repute, though one ought to be forgiven for not knowing the name of a man who has never finished high ...

This posed a real problem for Chrysler when the company chose to replace its venerable Dodge Neon (later SX 2.0) with a rather bland crossover called the Caliber for 20 ...

Horse for the Course: 4,000m of climbing, mostly on dirt


The invitation email was abrupt and vague. An unsanctioned race in a few weeks, about 100+ miles, much of it on dirt backroads high in the Rocky Mountains, and 3,000m of climbing, “plus or minus 1,500m”. No support of any sort, no specific course listed, and the only rule being that your team of six all had to finish together. Team BikeRadar was in.What sort of bike do you ride on something like this?After some deliberation — and after reading a subsequent email that outlined the course wit ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
