2012 Canyon Bicycles – New 29ers, Ltd Edition Alloy Road Bike, Proto TT Bike…

first_imgThe Ultimate AL is their top of the line alloy road bike. For 2012, it gets revised geometry to make it a little more comfortable for long rides but still has raceable performance. The new hydroformed frame is also said to be stiffer where needed and comes in at a claimed 1220g. This Limited Edition 9.0 SL with a brushed finish will have only 100 available next year with Ultegra Di2. Specs are:That translates to 16.64lbs.Canyon’s VCLS Flat Springs seatpost. Photo: Adam Aisen – Feltet.deShown as a prototype that will be in production in 2012, the VCLS Flat Springs seatpost uses two half-circle tubes in place of a standard round seatpost. The design provides a maximum of 20mm of travel simply by flexing. The seat rail clamp section loosens like normal to slide the saddle fore/aft. To adjust angle, you loosen the seatpost collar and slide one of the tubes up or down then retighten the collar. Brilliant in its simplicity, and it weighs in at just 190g…lighter than many alloy posts despite the features.Canyon has introduced their first ever 29er mountain bikes. Dubbed Grand Canyon, the carbon fiber 29er above is still in the works and won’t be available until late next year as a 2013 model…but it shows Canyon is paying attention with the inclusion of a dropper seatpost on top of a full XX build, lightweight DT Swiss wheels and Continental tires. Oh, and a thru-axle rear…The Grand Canyon AL 29 will be available this year, though.The tapered headtube is really short but massive, providing a low cockpit but (likely) burly stiffness. The hydroformed, curved downtube is very wide, ending at an even wider BB. The 142×12 rear axle is a nice touch. The seatstays are pretty thin, which should provide a decent ride quality, and shift cables are run internally to make it look good.The front derailleur cable pops out and runs through a little pivot to keep it running smooth as the mech moves through the gears. Weight for the complete bike as shown is claimed at 24lbs even.The Torque FRX downhill bike gets an all-new Track Flip four-position suspension adjustment to change the ride height, travel and angles.Change the lower shock mount position within the four options to move travel between 185mm and 203mm, head angle from 64º to 65º and small changes to the BB height.The model above gets the spec list here. The frame has internal cable routing for the drop seatpost, too.Same bike, different paint and spec. Canyon showed their first ever 29er mountain bikes, a new limited edition top-end aluminum road bike, a unique dual-beam suspension seatpost and this prototype time trial bike called Concept Speedmax.Surprisingly, Canyon’s reps said this is designed specifically as a TT bike for their pro riders and not really for triathlon. It’s pretty striking with the matte white finish and sharp lines. Although a bit reminiscent of a Giant, it has its own unique lines like at the back of the seatclamp area, cable exit near the rear dropouts and sharp lines on the downtube. Notice the seatpost’s rails, too, designed for the MonoLink saddles with the clamp set pretty far forward. At the moment, it’s designedFor stuff you can actually buy and ride, click ‘more’…last_img read more

Samaritan’s Purse Delivers 18,000 Pounds Of Supplies To Alaska

first_imgSamaritan’s Purse is a Christian humanitarian aid organization that provides aid to people in physical need as a key part of its Christian missionary work. Samaritan’s Purse works in more than 100 countries. He also offered details on the sorts of supplies that will be headed to the rural hubs: “In terms of the equipment and supplies coming off the Samaritan’s Purse delivery today, we have 27 hospital beds, a number of hospital beds with mattresses, we have drapes, we have towels, we have gloves – 5,400 gloves for examining, we also have surgical masks, and then 200,000+ of other forms of surgical masks. So, there are a number of pieces of equipment that have come out here.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Mike Dunleavy welcomed a Samaritan’s Purse DC-8 aircraft, carrying nearly 18,000 pounds of critical medical supplies, at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport on Monday, April 6. When asked why Samaritan’s Purse’s donation will be focused on rural communities, the Governor explained: “In terms of the specifics of how Samaritan’s Purse’s supplies were dived up, I believe there was a request by Samaritan’s Purse that – since they do a lot of work in rural communities and rural Alaska, and they understand the difficulties and problems that could arise from a virus getting into rural Alaska – I believe they asked that the supplies they bring to Alaska be focused on rural Alaska.”center_img The Governor discussed the donation of supplies at a press briefing Monday evening. He was joined by Alaska Emergency Operations Center Incident Commander Bryan Fisher to discuss the status of preparations for the treatment of Alaskans infected with COVID-19. Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Anne Zink also delivered an update on the status of COVID-19 in the state. Governor Dunleavy: “Today, we’re very fortunate in conversations with Samaritan’s Purse, the Graham family, and others have a real interest in Alaska – they have a presence in Alaska. You’ve probably heard about Samaritan’s Purse setting up a field hospital in New York City and helping with equipment and personnel in New York City. Well, we’re fortunate today that Samaritan’s Purse arrived in Alaska with a jet full of supplies for Alaska. So, nearly 18,000 pounds of medical supplies arrived in Anchorage today and these medical supplies will augment existing stockpiles in growing stockpiles for eight rural hub communities in the state of Alaska. So, those supplies will be going out to those hub communities to get our rural communities prepared for what we do believe is the eventual arrival of this virus into rural Alaska.”last_img read more
