Signs of Spring

It's carbon fiber bike season! The brightly-colored warning labels stuck all over frames and parts are like early flowers. Lovely, lovely.

Assembling a Cannondale Synapse I noticed that it comes with 60% fewer warning labels than similar models from Specialized. Then Ralph pointed out that if you pronounce "synapse" sloppily it sounds like "snaps."

Test pilots! Prepare! Your high-tech steeds await.

You'll be fine. Really.

Early adopters of emerging technology make the world safer for those who follow. We salute you.
