/n/ Jersey: Gen 1.1
Last thread: >>815764
Gen 1.1 is an /n/ jersey project with the purpose of releasing a new jersey resembling the Gen 1 jersey. Thus far, pic related is the most popular option. If you have suggestions for changes, please make those suggestions known.
We are still in the early stages. A lot of planning has yet to be done. However, we do now have an email list. To join the email list, send an email to sheldonbrown at horsefucker dot org.
If you want to help make this project happen, please provide input on what company to order from. I believe that that should be our next step. Once we have chosen a supplier, we can make a high res vector of the jersey using their template.
Gen 1.1 is NOT affiliated with The New Generation's jersey project. Please keep discussion of that project to its own thread: >>830837.

Norwegian researchers evaluated 160 men who filled in a questionnaire after they participated in a bike tour of some 324 miles. One in five of the men had numbness of the penis, which lasted more than a week in some. Thirteen percent (21 men) developed erectile dysfunction that generally lasted more than a week.
Researchers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health(NIOSH) evaluated 17 members of a bicycling police patrol unit in Cincinnati, Ohio. The men averaged nearly 5½ hours in the saddle each workday. Almost all of them experienced genital numbness from time to time. Those who rode the most were at the highest risk for erectile dysfunction, and the men who exerted the most pressure on their bike seats had the most problems. In a follow-up study, the NIOSH researchers found that bike-riding patrol officers who used a no-nose saddle reported penile numbness far less often than those using a standard saddle.
A team from NIOSH also looked at bike riding and sexual function in women who rode for an average of two hours several days a week. These women experienced decreased genital sensation compared to women to ran several days a week. In a later study, the team found that narrow seats and so-called cut-out seats increased pressure on the perineum.
You can break the vicious cycle of biking and sexual dysfunction by taking a few simple precautions.
Don’t use a racing seat with a long narrow nose. Pick a wide seat, ideally with plenty of padding. Special gel-filled and shock-absorbing seats are even available.
Don’t tilt your seat upward, a position that increases pressure on the perineum.
Be sure your seat is at the correct height, so your legs aren’t completely extended at the bottom of your pedal stroke.
For extra protection, consider wearing padded biking pants.
Raise the handlebars so you are sitting more upright.
Shift your position and take breaks during long rides.

With its tremendous strength to weight ratio, carbon fiber blows away steel in virtually every kind of lab test that the industry can throw at it. And with virtually limitless possibilities in design -- from tube shape, to carbon layup and fiber orientation -- the material can be customized to enhance comfort and compliance in one direction, while remaining incredibly stiff in another, hence the familiar "laterally stiff - vertically compliant" claim heard from so many road testers. As far as customization of ride quality goes, steel has nothing on carbon fiber.

I found this old bike out of a trash pile.
I cleaned it up(sort of), put some new brakes, got a new saddle, new bar, stem riser. Not sure what model it is, but i know for sure that it is a specialized stumpjumper. But thats not what im here for. I was thinking of converting it into a single-speed MTB. What are your thoughts?

With its tremendous aerodynamic advantage, recumbent bicycles blow away road bicycles and safety bicycles in virtually every kind of road test that the cycling industry can throw at it. And with virtually limitless possibilities in design -- from tube shape, to carbon layup and fiber orientation -- the recumbent bicycle can be customized to enhance the huge amount of comfort compared to road bicycles and compliance in one direction, while remaining incredibly aerodynamic in another, hence the familiar "comfortable and fast as fuck" claim heard from so many road testers. As far as customization of ride quality goes, road bicycles have nothing on recumbent bicycles.
