Chronicle: Collect Curate Connect
The year is coming to an end. For many of us it means a time of reuniting with friends and family and the recharge of those well-drained batteries.
And it’s the same for Velonode. But this time, the end of the year will also mark the end of an other era.

We got on the plane to Zürich, Switzerland to get a glance of their latest product and to experience it ourselves. The closer we got to Switzerland, the more I realized how much I like to look at mountains. It’s very liberating.
DT Swiss has many factories in Poland, France, Spain and Asia but still has a production facility for the alloy…[Read more]
We spent time both training and racing in the Rapha Pro Team Skinsuit, and can finally present our full review of this interesting piece.
First of all, let’s talk fabrics. Usually when it comes to skinsuits, pros get one thing, and we get another. Not what’s going on here. Rapha actually lets everyone gain from the Team Sky marginal gains…[Read more]
“When Bradley Wiggins came to Team Sky in 2010, he had signed an interesting contract but he also came to 2010 with new material; Pinarello bike, Kask helmet, Adidas clothing and those oddly shaped chainrings.
The concept of ovalized chainrings aren’t recently invented. They’ve been around for years. That being said,…[Read more]
According to Jean-Louis Talo, the inventor of the rings claims that he’s found a mechanical design that is properly made for the human body. Basically, the thinking behind the design is that normal chainrings are inefficient because we as humans are not efficient at producing power all around the pedal stroke.
That lead Jean-Louis to create…[Read more]
