Giro101 Tech: Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia team bikes bring Italian speed

first_imgAs one of a few teams whose main sponsor is the bike brand their riding, Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia kept the car, van and bike branding focused on what they’re riding. Throw in fellow Italian brand Ursus wheels and their use of the very popular Vittoria tubulars, and you’ve got a mostly Italian set of bikes.The Wilier Cento10Air is their aero road bike, which gained a disc brake version that came with a micro-suspension rear end to tame the cobbles. For the Giro D’Italia, though, they were running the premium rim brake model, which includes their integrated bar/stem and cable routing system for some of the riders. It’s not the chromed red and silver edition from last year’s Giro, but still pretty sweet looking.Most riders stick the numbers off the back of the post, but apparently that’s not the requirement.Integrated or not, Wilier makes some giant stems. The aero seatpost comes from Ritchey. The GPS computer is Bryton, sitting on a Bar Fly mount.Opt for the integrated front end and the shift cables run directly into the headtube and through the frame, not seeing the light of day until they reach the derailleur. This handy adjustment knob makes fine tuning the rear while riding possible. Opt for Di2 and this panel is replaced with a holder for the control box and charging port. All of these options are available on stock bikes, just know that the integration and hidden cables mean the bike has a straight 1-1/4″ bearing setup top and bottom, not your normal tapered headset.They’re running Shimano Dura-Ace all around. Note the cable entry port on the downtube, which is the third option if you’re running mechanical shifting and a standard stem and handlebar.The Ursus Miura TS37 Special Edition wheels are a limited colorway made for the 2018 Giro D’Italia. They’re carbon tubulars measuring 37mm deep, 24mm wide and come in at a claimed weight of 605g F/730g R. Hubs are alloy, made in house by Ursus, and get SKF bearings inside. They’re available for sale for around $1,700.The all-new Wilier Turbine debuted just two weeks before the start of this year’s Giro, and is one of the growing crop of disc brake-only TT bikes. They still offer two rim brake TT/triathlon bikes, but this is their top of the line model and distinct from the other two. They’re one of the first bikes at retail and in the peloton we’ve seen with the latest Shimano Di2 TT parts, including the new SW-R9160 bar end shifters. Those are paired with the new 9180 hydro brake levers, which also include a shift button.When you’ve invested in a power meter set up that’s produced years of data, many riders stick with older cranks. It’s still Dura-Ace, but not as new as the rest of the drivetrain.Check out the bikes and the team at Wilier.com.Check out every team’s bikes from the 2018 Giro here!last_img read more

Why Mental Pictures Can Sway Your Moral Judgment

first_imgNPR: When we think about morality, many of us think about religion or what our parents taught us when we were young. Those influences are powerful, but many scientists now think of the brain as a more basic source for our moral instincts.The tools scientists use to study how the brain makes moral decisions are often stories, said Joshua Greene, a Harvard psychologist, citing one well-known example: “A trolley is headed toward five people, and the only way you can save them is to hit a switch that will turn the trolley away from the five and onto a side track, but if you turn it onto the side track, it will run over one person.”It’s a moral dilemma. Greene and other researchers have presented this dilemma to research volunteers.Read the whole story: NPR More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

ACCF Welcomes Lake Charles LNG Approval, USA

first_imgFollowing the approval of the third LNG export application under review at the Energy Department, Margo Thorning, Ph.D., senior vice president and chief economist with the American Council for Capital Formation (ACCF) and director of research for its public policy think tank, released the following statement:“Despite it taking 823 days to review, we welcome the Department of Energy’s approval of the Lake Charles Exports LLC application and urge DOE’s immediate approval of the remaining 19 applications under review. With 63 projects in various stages of development worldwide, the slow permitting process at the Energy Department is jeopardizing the U.S.’s ability to contribute our abundant natural gas resources to the global market. The U.S. has a historic opportunity to reduce our trade deficit, increase American jobs and growth, and contribute new tax revenue to state and local communities through LNG exports. We urge Secretary Moniz to enable the market to determine which projects will clear local permitting, financing, and environmental reviews and approve all the remaining projects without delay.”ACCF recently released a paper on the impact that DOE bureaucratic delays for LNG export permits are having on the economy. The paper is the first-of-its-kind to track and compile the backlog of submissions to the DOE’s export application docket. It also provides a sketch of the complex 8-step approval process to export LNG from the U.S. and quantifies that up to $73.6 billion in annual economic activity and up to 452,000 jobs are not being realized with the permitting delays. A new report from the McKinsey Global Institute, the business and economics research arm of McKinsey & Company, released in July echoes the findings of the ACCF study and points to LNG exports as one of 5 game changer’s for America’s economy.The United States has 2,384 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) as of year-end 2012, according to the Potential Gas Committee. Due to abundant supply, America’s natural gas prices are significantly lower than international prices. According to the EIA, the spot prices at Henry Hub averaged $3.75/MMBtu during the first half of 2013 whereas monthly average prices of liquefied natural gas for August delivery in Asia peaked in March at $19.139/MMBtu and remain significantly higher than U.S. natural gas prices. It makes little sense why the United States is not capitalizing on this vast price differential and exporting more liquefied natural gas to non-Free Trade Agreement countries like Japan, where demand is high and supply is scarce.[mappress]LNG World News Staff, August 13, 2013; Image: Panhandle Enrgylast_img read more
