Met Drone triathlon helmet slips through on pre-release photos and video

spy shot of MET Drone triathlon tt aero helmet

For all the talk about shaving seconds of a 40km time trial with aerodynamics, we’ve heard little about saving time in transition during triathlon. Those marginal aero gains can easily be lost fiddling with gear, and that looks to be where the upcoming Met Drone aero helmet sets itself apart. Presumably, the actual aerodynamics will be dialed, too, but we’ll have to wait for the official release for that info. Until then, they’ve released these photos of pro triathlete Frederik Van Lierde wearing the helmet, plus video showing how quickly it goes on…

What do you call a 2000-watt Bullfrog? The Rungu Juggernaut

The Juggernaut from Rungu is not described as being a bike (or trike as the case may be) but instead gets labeled as an ATV. With twin front wheels, a 2000 watt hub motor in the rear wheel, and all of them shod in 5″ tires, it really does crawl out of the bicycle category. Designed to be the ultimate go-anywhere piece of machinery, the Juggernaut is marketed towards hunters, beachgoers, and snowbound explorers looking to decrease their carbon footprint. We covered its human-powered counterpart – the Bullfrog – a while back, which was only just barely still a bike (OK, trike), and they’ve somehow managed to make that thing even wilder. Join us past the break for the rundown on this mental machine…

Frostbike ’17: Turn your XD freehub into a single speed with Problem Solvers Zinger

Are you single speed curious? Did your bike come with adjustable dropouts and you want to try out single speed riding without investing in a new hub or wheel? For years, there has been an easy fix. Simply find some freehub spacers, a single speed cog, and a lock ring and you’re good to go. Then XD freehubs came along. Don’t get me wrong – they are awesome when it comes to XD compatible cassettes. But there also wasn’t a way to make them into a single speed without purchasing another Shimano freehub that is compatible with your hub.

To give riders another option, and a chance to dabble in single speed riding while keeping your current XD freehub, Problem Solvers has, well, solved the problem. Their new Zinger single speed kit will easily convert your XD freehub into a single speed carrier and it has a ton of adjustability for chainline…

Ask a Stupid Question #2: How often to wash your kit when commuting, clipless vs. flats, and proper helmet use

Ask A Stupid Question - ask Bikerumor your bicycle maintenance and tech questions and we'll find the answer

We know, there’s no such thing as a stupid question. But there are definitely some questions too embarrassing to ask your local shop or riding buddies. This is the first in a weekly installment where we get to the bottom of your questions – serious or otherwise. 

This week it’s all about gear. In one way or another, we all use it – but the little details aren’t always so clear.

Chris asks: So… I commute by bike 24 miles a day, too far to commute in clothes so I use a kit (bibs and jersey). The problem is I’m always washing them. Literally all the time so wear and tear in washing. Am I doing this right and wear once and done, or do others wear their bibs more than once before washing. Also I sweat like a maniac. Thanks!!!

That’s a great question, and while it seems like a simple answer, we wanted to be sure. So we reached out to a few clothing companies to ask their opinion, and the responses are fairly unanimous…

After losing his mother in a struggle with cancer, Romanian XC racer Vlad Sabau decided to get involved with the fight against this prolific disease.

This year’s pink chrome 2016 Cannondale F-Si will be the fourth bike Sabau has sold so far. Keep reading for specs on the bike and how to participate in the auction…
