FLO Cycling – Carbon Clincher Brake Track Testing

If you’ve been researching carbon clinchers, you’ve likely come across a thread on a forum where someone has melted their wheels while braking.  That’s a scary thought.  Do all carbon clinchers melt?  The quick answer is no.   We’ve done a lot a testing to ensure our new Carbon Clinchers pass safety standards so you […]

FLO Cycling – Aerodynamic Difference between Sapim CX-Ray and Round Spokes

Years ago when, Chris and I were starting FLO, we made the decision to use Sapim CX-Ray spokes.  We’d heard that they were faster than round spokes or bladed spokes.  The CX-Ray’s have a unique aero shape, which likely explains part of the reason the spokes are used on so many aerodynamic cycling wheels.   […]

FLO Cycling – A2 Wind Tunnel Tire Study Part 1

In Part 1 of this series, we are going to look at the effect tires have on aerodynamic drag.  The first time we visited the A2 Wind Tunnel back in April of 2011, we were shocked by how much of a difference tires could make.  We always wondered how much better our results could have […]
