How A Carbon Bike Is Made

How a carbon bike is made

There are almost as many methods for making a carbon bike  as there are manufacturers. I think it’s fair to say that there is still a lot to be learned. That’s the fun part, there is plenty of room for improvement. While we all have our own variation on the theme, the bicycle industry has been using the same basic manufacturing processes for the last 20 years. There has been plenty of evolution in the form of small refinements which add up over the years, but not major incremental advancements.

Everyone hates a know-it-all…except when it comes to composites

Posted by Jared Nelson on Mar 6, 2017 8:00:00 AM

We at Pursuit believe that an expert is not someone who knows all the answers, but instead knows the right questions to ask.  As noted below, I definitely do not know all the answers surrounding composites and it is our hope that through this Tech portion of the Pursuit Blog that we are able to investigate and discuss some of the pertinent questions.  In particular, we will focus on design, modeling, and manufacturing of composites as related to bicycle frames.  Below is the first step in that direction, where some of main hurdles of composite usage are discussed.  Finally, each Tech post will include credible references (a tip of the hat to Nate Silver [1]) so that readers may delve further into the topics addressed should they wish to do so.

Hand-me-down Schwinn

Discovery

When I began my cycling journey it was on a hand-me-down Schwinn convertible my sister had outgrown, and casually discarded in our barn. Something drew me to it, and the promise of greater mobility and freedom it offered. I taught myself by trial and error, no training wheels, and no parent pushing from behind, and soon discovered that the scrapes and bruises were well worth the cost.

Introduction to Made in Bozeman

Posted by Loretta Strong on Feb 13, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Past

What was once known to Native Americans as "many come together country" because of the rich fertile soil and use by several tribes, has recently been deemed "the most livable place", to some "the last best place", and is to us, home. Bozeman Montana the largest town in the Gallatin Valley, sitting at 4820 feet above sea level is surrounded by five mountain ranges, three rivers and the Headwaters of the Missouri. With almost one-half of the county's 2500 square miles of land owned by the Gallatin National Forest, Montana State BLM, and the National Parks Service, it is no wonder people come here to play. The lifestyle, one where most embrace the outdoors, be it cycling, hiking, climbing, fishing, skiing or just enjoying the Big Sky, is laid back. Most people don't move here to be in a hurry.
