MMT is in the good books with his wife, aka Directeur Sportif of Team MMT. MMT arranged for a dozen long stemmed roses to be delivered at her workplace, so that all her colleagues could admire them. Score several hundred brownie points.
However, MMT saw this picture on a cycling related Facebook group and wondered if one dozen was enough.
MMT has just finished his investigations of what new bike he was planning to bike. Perhaps another a few dozen roses would soften the message.
Until next time, ride safe and Happy Valentine’s Day
Its been a while since MMT put fingers to keyboard on this blog. So much has happened since December 2019, that MMT doesn’t even know where to start. So MMT is starting with a tangent…track bikes. Yep, those two words have never, ever been been put together in an MMT blog before. To cut a long story short, MMT has been listening to the Cycling Podcast and heard about the radically different track bike that some (MMT will use the quaint English term) boffins at Lotus and Hope Technologies have developed for Team GB.
Its called the HB-T and it looks amazing.
Here’s a whole bunch of photos MMT stole…err…requisitioned off the web.
Its the front on photo that hints at what these wide forks and back stays are for, optimized drag. Effectively the rider’s leg is sitting in line with forks and stays. MMT is guessing that laminar flow across the side of the bike, is vastly reduced.
MMT wonders if this kind of bike might cross over into professional peloton for time trials? If Team GB clean up the gold medals on offer for the indoor track events and thrash competition, that might happen. MMT can’t wait to see this machine in action at the Tokyo Olympics this year.
Hopefully MMT will start churning blogs on a more regular basis in the coming months.
