Muc-Off’s Lightweight Oversized Precision Shifting (L.O.P.S) is an oversized pulley wheel system proved in scientific tests to be lighter and stiffer than its leading competitors. It made its world premiere in the pivotal individual time-trial stage on the penultimate day of the 2020 Tour de France.

The system, which unites a highly advanced titanium body with supremely efficient coated pulley wheels and bearings, was used by Team Bahrain McLaren leader Mikel Landa on Saturday September 19 2020 as he made his final push for a place on the podium in Paris a day later.

L.O.P.S is an oversized pulley wheel system developed by Muc-Off’s scientists and engineers in partnership with McLaren. Comparative tests conducted using the sophisticated equipment in the new, leading-edge laboratory at the brand’s headquarters in Poole, Dorset, confirmed it as the lightest and stiffest of any of those selected from leading competitors.

The titanium body is created using a sophisticated additive manufacturing process. The pulley wheels (13t upper, 19t lower) are made from aerospace grade aluminium and finished with a supremely efficient coating that delivers friction coefficients over three times lower than hard anodised equivalents.

The bearings were manufactured to aerospace level specification. The size of the bearing used was optimised for the number of rolling elements and application speed to help reduce frictional losses. Ceramic rolling elements are lubricated with a special synthetic hydrocarbon to further reduce the coefficient of friction and tighter radial and axial tolerances improve shift accuracy.

Optimised specifically for the individual time-trial, the final piece of the puzzle to help maximise performance, was the lower sealing requirements, which led to further bearing drag reductions and to incorporate highly compatible material expansion rates.

I think it is a PR move. Cyclists are mostly left winged slant and with from what I heard happened in the presidential debate, even though Biden was bad, Trump was worse and did not want to condemn White supremacists.

So anyone associate themselves with Trump will naturally be perceived as a racist.
Correct but they did not terminate his contract from what I heard.

Plus Trek still has damages to repair since the Lance Armstrong days and in addition to that, they need to sell bikes and most people all over the world dislike Donald Trump, especially the Chinese

Openly declaring as Trump supporter also can kena sacked. bangwall.gif doh.gif

not to say less resistant, but from what i heard slightly larger will allow more contact patch for better braking wor.... especially with disc brakes.

apart from that, larger width = lower air pressure = better comfort (though i doubt it made any difference lol)

I'm using Vittoria 28C but still feel nicer rolling with 100psi.

I've made my jump to 28c when I switched to my current bike... running 100psi as well. Are you at least 90kg?

Klang towards KL boleh. U just have to ride through brickfields to get into kl.

Coming back, there are no proper cycling lane for brickfields-pantai dalam so I would suggest taking grab or if permissible, take KTM train head back to PJ or all the way back to Klang.

If you insist to cycle all the way back then I suggest you head to jalan bangsar from Brickfields, then from jalan bangsar towards menara TM to get to pantai dalam junction in order to get back into federal hiway motor lane.

Every racer and mechanic has a specific (usually top-secret) tire pressure that he or she considers to be the best, but there are some general guidelines.

“In general, with all of those variables [like weather and riders’ personal preference], that tire pressure is 8 to 8.5 bar for the road stages, and then 9.5 to 10 bar for the time-trial stages. Around 115 psi in the front and 125 psi in the back for the road stages and 130-135 psi for time-trial stages. And we drop that by 10 or 15 for rainy days,” veteran mechanic for teams like Garmin-Sharp and EF Education First Geoff Brown told us.

They run about 10 psi lower in the front for more control as well, and with tubular tires, they tend to run slightly lower pressures. Clinchers need to be kept around 110 to 120 psi in order to avoid pinch-flatting.
