Comment on Inspecting Carbon Fibre Bike frames by RichardE /?p=111&cpage=1#comment-9172 Fri, 15 Nov 2013 18:44:13 +0000 /?p=111#comment-9172 Hi Campbell
yes this is a great idea. Having just had a very serious RTA I am in something of a dilema. My somewhat unique carbon frame has emerged seemingly unscathed. Though this would be paid for by someone else’s insurance I am loathe to scrap the frame if it is actually as undamged as it appears. If you have started this service or indeed are able to do something as a one off, let me know cost etc. Please email:
richard@paragrap.demon.co.uk
Thanks

See http://www.fitzs.com.au > Useful stuff > History of Fitz’s.
Hope you will keep this page going from strength to strength.

See graph:

In summary, nearly 2km of climbing, with virtually all of it >10% gradient and steepest part being 29%!!

Comment on Climb Classification and Gradients by Joe /?p=32&cpage=1#comment-8983 Wed, 17 Jul 2013 10:04:42 +0000 /?p=32#comment-8983 Great post, thanks. As what you would call a non-rider I live on top of a 1km hill which is 6.5% overall, but there is a 100m stretch at over 10% and that is a bitch! The poor road surface does not help as you quickly lose any momentum you have when you hit a bump. So your guide to gradients is pretty accurate.
