We explain the Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo groupset hierarchies


TAGS:Buyer's guides

What is a road bike groupset?

On bikes, the term groupset, or “gruppo”, refers to any mechanical or electronic parts that are involved in braking, changing gear, or the running of the drivetrain. That means the shifters, brake levers, front and rear brake calipers, front and rear derailleurs, crankset, bottom bracket, chain, and cassette.

If you’re buying a bike, then, after the frame, the groupset is the second thing that you should look at, and is a key determining factor in working out whether the bike in front of you offers good value for money or not.

There are three main manufacturers of groupsets and bike components.  Shimano is the largest and best known, while the other two of the “big three” are Campagnolo and SRAM.  All three manufacturers offer a range of groupsets at competing price points.

Read further down the page for information on individual components – whilst you’ll find information about the ‘big three’ providers below…

Bamboo bicycle - Wikipedia
Technical aspects[edit]

Several aspects of bamboo are extremely valuable to both cyclists and bicycle manufacturers: high strength-to-weight ratio, vibration control, and sustainable growth. Because of bamboo's tendency to grow straight, it does not exhibit "knots" and "turns" in its wood, unlike other types of wood. As a result, bamboo has a higher specific tensile strength than steel, as well as a higher specific compressive strength than concrete.[5][6] This tendency also allows for excellent vibration control, which, in turn, provides for a smoother ride and increased stability on rough terrain.

Mechanical properties of bamboo

introduction

kinds of bamboo

The bamboo is in its size, lightness and strength an
extreme product of nature. It is stable and because of its
cavities an extreme light and elastic building material. The
reinforcement by diaphragms and its physical conditions
cause its enormous superiority compared to other building
materials.

guadua angustifolia

Throughout the world there are about 500 different species
of bamboo sometimes within hundreds of subspecies. Even
only in Colombia about 25 different giant bamboos are used
for construction. To those belongs also the "guadia
angustifolia" which we look at in this article. It grows in
hights up to 1800 metres [NN], mostly in small forests
along creeks but also on fields and inclinations. There exist
two subspecies called guadua castilla andguadua mecana.
It reaches a tallness of about 20-25 metres and a diameter
up to 18 cm.

Just managed to finish it for Christmas and the photos were taken on its first ride – all went well until the seatpost shim debonded near the end of the ride (easy to fix).”

Inside Bamboo Bicycles Beijing | SmartBeijing
A first look at the new social startup, fresh off Kickstarting 15 grand into the bank. The next level of Beijing hutong eco-chic...

By Josh Feola APR 29, 2014 ACTIVITIES

If you live in Beijing you might have seen that Bamboo Bicycles kickstarter floating around. If not, the concept is pretty self-explanatory. Bicycles made of bamboo. In Beijing.


Bamboo Bicycles Beijing is the brainchild of David Chin-Fei Wang, a Boston transplant who's been living in China for six years. After graduating university, he got a Fulbright grant to do a year-long anthropological research project on sports and nationalism in contemporary Chinese culture. After that he ran a bar in Xi'an called Oscar's. That lost money pretty efficiently. Faced with going back to the US for grad school or staying on, David carved a position for himself at China Youthology, a Beijing-based startup conducting market research on emerging trends among... yeah, Chinese youth. Again, David focused on sports, albeit broadly construed. He recently pulled an all-nighter at a wang ba studying World of Warcraft culture. That gets raw apparently.

WelcomeOur MilestonesBamboo Bike HistoryProductsGallery



Welcome
Robert Hartmann is a Swiss entrepreneur who relocated to Shanghai in 2005 after completing his high school education. He attended Fudan Univeristy to study Mandarin Chinese before completing his bachelor’s degree in Marketing at Raffles Design Institute (RDI) Shanghai, awarded by Northumbria University in the UK (where Apple’s chief designer, Jonathan Ive attended).

Shanghai Bamboo Bikes began as the final undergraduate project Students were asked to collaborate with designers to simulate a company start-up. While the designers create products it was Robert’s assignment to come up with branding and marketing strategies. After much research and discovery he set his sights on the bamboo bike concept. From that point on the bamboo bike has continued to grow and change with us. The first few bamboo bikes were non-rideable prototypes—in fact they were only intended to illustrate his thesis. Who would have known that there were so many people who wanted to buy the prototype?

FAQs - Bamboo Bicycle Club
faqs.
General

Why build a bamboo bicycle?

Bamboo has ideal properties, highly suited to bicycle construction. As a material, it has excellent vibration dampening effects, and the all the bumps in the roads seem to be effortlessly absorbed. Academic research has been conducted at the Universities of Princeton, Zurich and Oxford Brookes, Queen Mary, and UCL (among others), and all credits bamboo as a fantastic material for bicycle building. The bamboo bicycle club team have been researching and experimenting with bamboo frames for well over 4-6 years and we just can’t get enough of that smooth sensation!
