How a Bicycle is Made - 1945 and into the future


How a Bicycle is Made (1945) from British Council Film on Vimeo.

They sure don't make 'em like they used to..



look at that precision welding!

and of course there is this....




....and of course this monstrosity which looks like it's been "spooling" since 1996.

I find it frustrating that the most cutting edge production technique has just be used to print an archaic dually. Maybe its more of an archival project? Throw a Girvin fork on there and you're food to go!

CX Hairs, Sveness 2.17 - Hoogerheide, Netherlands, for the 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Championship

While watching UCI races is like watching paint dry, I have to applaud CX Hairs for their excellent commentary. If you haven't watched any before don't be turned off this isn't your typical boring race footage.

Mystery Park Tool, anyone know what it does?

Update: Park along with many other sources were able to identify the Mystery tool, it's for spreading old Mafac brake lever band clamps

This showed up at the shop today, no too sure what it's for any ideas?
