The Outspoken Cyclist – 4/30/2011

This week it’s my turn to be ‘here but not here’, as I make my first foray into ultra-distance cycling at Calvin’s 12-Hour Challenge. But with some help from technology, we’re able to bring you a new installment of The Outspoken Cyclist.

Today’s first guests are a pair of researchers from Cornell University, who have made some recent discoveries about the self-stability of bicycles. In the process Andy Ruina and Jim Papadopoulos have poked holes in a couple of long-held beliefs about what makes bicycles balance as they do. Get your geek on and hear what they have to say.

After the news and calendar, Diane chats with one of the world’s foremost framebuilders,  Mark Nobilette, about his past and present in the realm of steel bike frames.
