Best carbon road bike: what makes good quality carbon and five bikes to consider

Carbon fibre is often seen as the dream material of cycling – when well produced it’s light and stiff, and it can be moulded into any shape. People often refer to ‘good carbon’ and ‘bad carbon’ – usually as a pre-requisite to saying that quality aluminum is better than the latter. >>> FEBRUARY OFFER: Subscribe to Cycling Weekly from just £31.49 and receive a Muc-Off voucher worth £40. Ends midnight Saturday. <<< Most brands come up with fancy sounding titles for their own carbon construction– FACT (Specialized), OCLV (Trek) Advanced Composite (Giant) are all examples. However, the vast majority of the raw carbon fibre actually comes from just six companies, and often goes on to be used in the aerospace industry. It’s how the material is manipulated by the bike brand which influences the ride quality and strength. The dream combination is high stiffness, low weight and at an affordable price: usually at least one of the three has to be sacrificed in order to achieve greatness elsewhere. Raw carbon fibre due to be used for sports equipment (‘Pitch’ type carbon fibre is used elsewhere) is usually made from polyacrylanitrile (PAN) fibre which is heat treated to ta...

If you need a high voltage, a voltage multiplier is one of the easiest ways to

If you need a high voltage, a voltage multiplier is one of the easiest ways to obtain it. A voltage multiplier is a specialized type of rectifier circuit that converts an AC voltage to a higher DC voltage. Invented by Heinrich Greinacher in 1919, they were used in the design of a particle accelerator that performed the first artificial nuclear disintegration, so you know they mean business. Theoretically the output of the multiplier is an integer times the AC peak input voltage, and while they can work with any input voltage, the principal use for voltage multipliers is when very high voltages, in the order of tens of thousands or even millions of volts, are needed. They have the advantage of being relatively easy to build, and are cheaper than an equivalent high voltage transformer of the same output rating. If you need sparks for your mad science, perhaps a voltage multiplier can provide them for you. The multiplier circuit needs an AC power supply in order to work. For the sake of simplicity let´s assume that one side of the power supply is grounded and remains at zero potential, and the other varies between plus and minus U (100 V in the example). Here’s what happens: As we ...

Patients prefer capsules as they are easier to swallow than tablets and do not have a bad taste or odor. The non-gelatin based capsules are not made from animal by-products and are more acceptable by so...

2020 Subaru Outback Review | Price, specs, features and photos

This page is for personal, non-commercial use. You may order presentation ready copies to distribute to your colleagues, customers, or clients, by visiting http://www.autobloglicensing.com It may not look it, but the 2020 Subaru Outback is a completely redesigned model. Eager to keep its snowball of success rolling, Subaru chose to evolve and refine its popular, genre-bending utility vehicle rather than re-inventing the wheel. The key improvements can be found inside, where swaths of padded simulated leather are pretty much everything, creating an overall environment that’s more pleasant for your eyes and fingers. Even the armrests are pleasantly squishier than before. Ultimately, though, the cabin’s show-stopper is the massive vertically oriented touchscreen found on most trim levels. Mechanically, the 2020 Outback sees the welcome return of a turbocharged engine upgrade – good news for those living at higher elevations – but the overall driving experience remains familiarly comfortable yet drably uninvolving. The near-constant beeping and flashing of the car’s over-eager standard safety nannies will at least keep you awake. The Outback’s overall packagi...

Liz Weston: It’s time to let go of shame over your debt

Three-quarters of U.S. households owe money, but the vast majority pay their bills on time and have debt loads that are reasonable given their incomes. But many people still report being embarrassed about owing money. In one study, nearly everyone with debt believed they would be happier without it. Researchers have also found a “strong relationship” between debt and several mental health issues, including depression. Sometimes, stress and anxiety over debt is perfectly appropriate. If you’re about to lose your home, have more student loan debt than you could pay in a lifetime or are headed to bankruptcy court, some angst is understandable. Being ashamed of having debt, though, can be counterproductive. Debt shame could make you want to hide from your situation, potentially making it worse. Or you could panic and try to get rid of debt at any cost, potentially at the expense of long-term financial security. Borrowing a reasonable amount of money to get an education or buy a house often makes economic sense. The education can deliver increased income, while the house can build wealth over time as the mortgage is paid down and home prices rise. Ideally, we would save to buy the ot...

We do a lot with both tools and batteries. Case in point are our articles on the DeWalt FlexVolt technology and the Milwaukee 9.0 Ah batteries. But what about the battery chargers that resupply energy to these batteries? As it turns out, there are possibly even more differences among battery chargers than the packs themselves. While we don’t think anyone will “jump ship” from one platform to another just because of charger technology, it’s good to know who stands out. For this article, we requested the best battery charger from every major tool manufacturer. Most responded and participated. We then took a close look at each to see how they were made. Following is our evaluation of the best battery chargers for power tools. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERSgoogletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1389975325257-0′); }); Notice we said WHAT makes the best battery charger, not WHO. Answering the first question really depends on your needs and how you use your power tools. As you go through this article, realize that we don’t expect anyone will shift their tool platform of choice based on a charger. What we do want to communicate are any standout features for e...

K 2019 Report: More Control, Faster Ordering for Molds, Hot Runners: Plastics Technology

Online monitoring of existing systems and configuration and ordering of new molds were featured at K 2019, as were numerous advances in valve-gate controls. During October’s K 2019 show in Düsseldorf, several suppliers in the mold technology space rolled out online systems allowing users to spec out a tool package online and order it from the web. Among the items they can order? More and more sophisticated valve-gate system for precise control of melt flow. (For a full picture of hot-runner and tooling news at K, see the September show preview and Keeping Up sections in September to December.)   Less downtime and more processing capability is the promise of Mold-Masters Melt-Cube EVO side-gating hot-runner system. At K, Mold-Masters offered attendees the chance to try out the new in-line design themselves. With this system, tips are secured by a single bolt, reportedly making mold service 85% faster. On a 64-cavity system, Mold-Masters says up to 5 hr of downtime could be saved. Offering simultaneous horizontal direct side gating for up to eight cavities, Mold-Masters says the Melt-Cube EVO is perfect for high-cavitation molds producing deep-draw medical parts. Mold-Masters Mel...

Adam Sandler Sparkles in the Safdie Brothers’ Uncut Gems

There’s a karmic power to the titular stones of Uncut Gems, Josh and Benny Safdie’s startling whirligig of a character study. And the movie knows it. Why else would a chaotic Adam Sandler film about the New York diamond district open in the Welo opal mines of Ethiopia, zeroing in on the distraught face and open wounds of an injured black miner? Not that there isn’t precedent for this sort of thing: see films like Blood Diamond, with their flattering liberal awareness and ostensibly political style. In that case, though, the art is merely a venue for bearing witness to colonial destruction at a safe remove, a posture meant to stoke only the most obvious, helpless anger. Uncut Gems is another kind of movie altogether—a great one, for starters. And again, it announces this difference in its opening minutes: with a close-up on gorgeous black opals that transports us, Magic School Bus-style, from the mines of the their origin to the similarly cavernous innards of Howard Ratner (Sandler). Howard, the Jewish diamond dealer whose fate, we soon learn, is bound up with that of the stones, is in the middle of a colonoscopy when we meet him. The moment affords at least one obvious meaning: ...
