Feature Story in Bicycling Magazine: Bamboo Bikes and the War on Wind

In the December issue of Bicycling Magazine is a feature story I did on Nick Frey, a brilliant young engineer, a rising star in the cycling world and founder of Boo Cycles, which makes high-end, $7,000 racing bikes out of wood. The story was a lot of fun to do, and gave me a chance to delve into the the history of aerodynamics in the sport, the arms race in the war against wind, and to interview pioneers like Steve Hed, Lennard Zinn and others.  It’s not online, but you can see the story on stands now.  Also, there are some beautiful photos of Frey and his bike here taken by photographer Sam Adams.
