A great moment in modern history, two black men standing up against racism and abuse at home in a medal ceremony abroad.

Unfortunately, both paid dearly for their free speech at the hands of the very country representing itself as "free" and fighting against totalitarianism in Vietnam. I like to think they've been vindicated by history, however.

A salute...to Tommie Smith and John Carlos!

Everything that can be is made  of carbon fiber, from the car bon bike frames to the fork, e ven the wheel carbon bike part s. Its manufacturer, the carbo n rims on the two aerodynamic,  deep-dish carbon wheels liter ally split the air in front of  them, as they eliminate unnec essary drag behind the face of  the tire.

The most obvious aspect of the se bicycle frames is a very lo w weight that’s comparable to  carbon track frame at a much l ower cost. While freewheel pic kup can lag, they light up ver y quickly once locked in. They  flick and lift arou nd effortlessly on the trail.
