Ultimate Hubber

Ultimate Hubber (6/6)

  1. It works great over here...but the city is tiny. I would guess it isn't plausible in most SA towns/cities. I am keen on one of these: https://www.larryvsharry.com/en/bullitt They do electrified versions but Copenhagen is pancake flat so no need for the extra expense and (potential) problems.
  2. Anecdotal evidence - here in Denmark we have a kaaaaaaakload of bikes and ebike sales are booming. I have only seen a handful of eroad or emtb - ALL of them are ecommuters or ecargo bikes. Fun fact - I get about 90% of my shop deliveries by ecargo bike now.
  3. https://www.cyclingnews.com/news/who-are-the-most-popular-riders-on-social-media/ The article covers more than just Men/Women but I was amazed to see top men have 10x the following that the top women do on social media! Ineos cleaning up in the Teams category and the TdF (predictably) in the Races category. I did the find the gap between Grand Tours and the Classics bigger than I would have thought. Maybe because Joe Public watches Grand Tours but only cycling fans watch Classic? Either way an interesting article for the stats lovers....
  4. Indeed. The fight for the African Leaders jersey is awesome - and they're both in the Top 10!
  5. I'm super happy to be wrong about Beers and Sarrou fading. Just under a 7 minute cushion to 2nd now. Gooooo Matt Beers (and the other guy!).
  6. As a child while your immune system is forming yes - as an adult it makes very little difference.
  7. Exactly the same as covid - moral of the story at stage races - wash your hands often, don't get too close to too many people and DON'T TOUCH YOUR FACE EVER! Wet stages are also bad with mud, dung and the associated bacteria and parasites being sprayed all over the place.
  8. The Trek Pirelli guy was hanging on for dear life the last 20km. Didn't even take his hand off the bars to high five his team mate across the line πŸ™‚
  9. Beers and Sarrou seem to be fading a tiny bit every day... Let's hope it isn't a trend/they're saving something for later/playing the strategy card. Beers for the win!!!
  10. As an SS lover that bikes makes me warm and fuzzy. As a bike fitter every part of that bike makes my eyes bleed. Oh and it is super easy to sort out the sliding drop out problem (that isn't really a problem).
  11. I'm really enjoying it. It makes an expats heart get a little warm πŸ™‚
  12. Bollocks. If you aren't born with the Danish genes to grow the 13 extra tongue muscles required to pronounce the bløde d it is impossible 😁😁
  13. I am enjoying Annika Langvad's commentary. It is always interesting hearing "insider" info in between the usual MC babble.
