Share this post TFUPM Posted August 14, 2017 in Wombles, Wombles Brisbane

The Wombles Brisbane formed a little over 13 years ago out of Lifecycle.  This group of dedicated riders were looking to provide a variety of rides for sheer enjoyment of riding with a challenge or two thrown in.  No crazy pace, no time limited rides, just a great journey and a destination that is just as important as the ride itself.  Social and fun is the aim of a Wombles Brisbane ride.

Wilier Triestina Zero 6

To ride the best, have the very best of technology, design and componentry at your fingertips, that is what a Wilier Triestina #Zero6 represents. The 680 gram frame, has been possible only by exploiting two dedicated years of research, testing and road-trials. A new carbon fibre called DIALEAD™, produced by Mitsubishi Japan and blended with a new production process has finally allowed Wilier to reach this target weight. Combine this lightness with the extreme manoeuvrability and exceptional handling that has made Wilier products famous the world over. Married with this is the latest Shimano  #DuraAceDi2 groupset Shimano-Road WH9000 wheels and Deda Elementi finishes. Incredible bike #lovemywilier #localbikeshop

Wilier Cento10NDR Release

The release of the new Cento10ndr heralds a new standard for Speed, Comfort and Endurance.  

https://www.wilier.com/en/products/int/road/cento10ndr

A racing frame and the perfect balance between performance and comfort. The Cento10NDR will let you spend long hours in the saddle, thanks to its specially designed endurance geometry and the ACTIFLEX system – Wilier’s new approach to absorbing rear vibrations generated by bumps in the road surface.

The road bike market is evolving. New users are coming to the world of high-performance bikes with a variety of goals other than purely racing. They want more relaxed geometry, the option to fit wider tires and disc brakes, and the ability to cycle long distances without discomfort. Essentially, they want the perfect blend of responsiveness, performance, light-weight, ride quality and comfort. With the Cento10NDR we have brought together all these aspects that until now belonged to completely different visions and experiences of cycling. Developing the ACTIFLEX project since 2014, we have woven our traditional racing DNA into the endurance world.

ACTIFLEX is the heart of the Cento10NDR frame, providing an all-new connection between the seat post and seat stays. Using a carefully designed aluminium link and technopolymer dissipater, we can give the rear wheel a few millimeters of travel. The torsional stiffness of the aluminium link remains comparable to traditional monocoque carbon seatstays, despite the various connections involved. This stiffness gives the frame racing performance but at the same time allows the rear wheel to move up and down over bumps caused by imperfections in the road surface. Connected to the link there is a dissipater that stabilises the kinematic movement of the rear triangle. This special technopolymer has amazing mechanical properties, high atmospheric resistance and can function in temperatures from -40°C to +150°C. The dissipater will be made in three different colours for the different levels of density, meaning that ACTIFLEX can be set up perfectly according to the weight of the rider and/or the type of terrain they typically encounter on their bike.

Cento10NDR is a race-ready frame derived from the Cento10AIR, our high-end light, aerodynamic bike. As in the Cento10AIR, Wilier’s new creation has been developed according to Naca-Low-Speed rules – aeronautical algorithms that allow us to design the frame tubes with the highest possible aerodynamic efficiency. Alongside the NACA algorithms, Wilier uses another important concept in aerodynamics: the Kamm theory. Indeed, all profiles are designed with a K-tail, reducing weight and increasing stiffness without negatively affecting the aerodynamic efficiency of the tube itself.

Cento10NDR is the first road bike whose frame and fork can be fitted with two different types of brakes: disc brakes with thru-axles and 160 mm rotors or traditional direct-mount calliper brakes with quick releases. This solution expands the available configurations of the Cento10NDR, meaning the frame is always ready for an upgraded braking system. The fork and rear triangle have been designed to accommodate a wide range of tires: up to 28 mm with the direct-mount setup or up to 32 mm if using disc brakes.

Adidas eyewear showcase - new range.

Check out the Adidas Specialist Cycling Eyewear range in our showcase full of new stock including the Evil Eye Pro, Evil Eye, Evil Eye Half Rim, and Tycane range. All lenses feature Adidas's LST active (Light Stabalising Technology) which uses a complex 7 layer design to give a similar effect to photochromic lenses without the delay in transition. Come try the Vario lens, the perfect night to day riding lens solution.  This significantly reduces eye fatigue especially when riding through rapid light/shadow changes. These sport glasses also have Adidas's hydrophobic coating applied to the lenses which repels water, dust and salt maintaining crystal clear viewing in all conditions.

Some of the range can be fitted with prescription lenses to increase your enjoyment of cycling without the need to secondry solutions.

For more details on colour, sizing and range check them out here.

Super road bike deal!

Looking for the perfect all rounder, a super road bike deal on a bike to stand out a little, a deft climber, sprinter and comfortable ride.  Consider the Wilier Triestina GTR SL and be surprised Italian design does not automatically equate to high prices.  

High Modulus Carbon frame of only 990 grams, featuring squared tubes around the bottom bracket area, and by adding sharper edges to the frame, torsional stiffness is vastly improved on the GTR SL. The massive bottom bracket area allowed Wilier Triestina to design larger asymmetric chain stays. The asymmetric chain stays improve the pedal stroke efficiency by balancing the chain­ generated torque.

The rear stays are designed to be comfortable but stiff at the same time to ensure optimal ride quality. A differential thickness of the stays allows Wilier engineers to fine tune the ride feel. Near the seat tube, the stays are larger to ensure stiffness and efficiency, but moving away from the seat tube, they taper to a thinner profile, allowing maximum absorption of the vertical stresses.

The rear triangle has been designed to accept 28mm tyres, in line with the latest trend allowing the bike to be used in the growing “gravel bike” sector. The GTR SL can be become the ideal set up for rides on rough or gravel roads.

Available in several suggested build with Campagnolo or Shimano componentry from

$4700 as Campagnolo Athena

$$5300 as Campagnolo Chorus

$4200 as Shimano 105

$4700 as Shimano Ultegra.  Or Custom Build with 

or custom build your way with so many options to choose from.  Come talk with us about the range of frames and complete builds from Wilier Triestina and design your own super road bike deal

Sunday By Appointment

We understand time can be short with mid week fully occupied with work and family commitments.  The time it takes to select that new road or mountain bike and look at all the custom build options is time consuming and difficult to rush.  Its your bike for many years, so we all want to get it right.

Therefore, Lifecycle Garage & Bespoke will offer Saturday and Sunday By Appointment.  This way, you can complete the selection process or custom build of your new Wilier, Fuji, Norco, Lapierre, Merida or any number of frames coming available in the peace and quiet of a closed showroom.  Sit at our coffee table and and enjoy uninterrupted time to make your selection free of noise or distractions.  Please call to discuss the dates and times with us 0738312611 or email to [email protected]
