BangKing 2010 in Japan

Last weekend, the traditional BangKing was arranged in Japan, in which everyone could enter.
Unfortunately, I could not take part on it personally, only as a sponsor; but it was good to see the smile of Matsudos face, who had Yobi hubs in his hands!

“Providentially, the Uchinada velodrome in the prefecture of Ishikawa (along the coast of the Sea of Japan) hosts designated periods when it is open to the public.¬†As the weekend training sessions of the professional riders stamp the authenticity of this bank, this arena provides the perfect opportunity for us city track racers to experience part of the keirin world.”

Kalavinka carbon frame with Yobi parts – 1. ride

After the first testing day of the Kalavinka frame I can state that it performs beyond expectations and also works perfectly together with yobi bike parts!
The whole construction is extremely rigid and very demanding, well done Kalavinka!
The “K” letter¬†at¬†the bottom¬†of the carbon fork¬†is¬†truly¬†a masterpiece!

Both the eccentric¬†technology¬†and¬†the chain stay’s bending¬†are very¬†smart¬†solutions.
The only disadvantage could be the weight, but in every other aspect it’s better than the previous ones!
The distance of the bottom bracket from the ground is 295 mm (it’s a good one, thanks to the eccentric solution).
The axle-distance is between 940-990 mm( size-L), is short.  The bb axle-rear axle distance can 370 mm. It provides a really good acceleration factor.

And a few things about the wheels:
I’m¬†totally¬†satisfied with them! The two-cross-style¬†makes the¬†rear¬†wheel very¬†strong and it¬†spins¬†awesome.
Just watch the national tricolor stripe spinning at 70 km/h!!!
