I prefer MacOS to develop, because it’s much more stable than Windows 10 – last issues with October update are the best evidence, that something is not ok with this OS development. It’s similar to Linux in many ways, but not exactly Linux like Debian, Ubuntu, RHEL etc. In effect, we can’t just use build-in repositories to install some required software, services and servers. But there is very nice option called Homebrew. Using this, we can make MacOS even closer to Linux system and configuration will be simpler.Continue reading “Create development environment on MacOS using Homebrew”
I have carbon-based frame and fork on my CX bike (used also as road bike and gravel) and I make a lot of experiments with it – changing chainrings, wheels, derailleurs, tires. One of interesting test was carbon-based handlebars. I decided to buy it and try, on road cycling, but also on light terrain. After few months I really can’t recommend this solution, because of many disadvantages and a lack of real life advantages. Maybe you can say something different about that, but I don’t have great opinion about carbon in this place.Continue reading “Carbon handlebars in CX bike – is it worth it?”
I wrote few times about tubeless or about tyres which I use in tubeless system – for example Schwalbe X-One on CX rides, Schwalbe Pro One on road (road tubeless), and Panaracer Gravelking SK as gravel allround tyres. After more than I year, I decided to stop this madness and go back to inner tubes. Why? Because tubeless isn’t perfect, and on real, amateur usage, can be very problematic. Read more to see why.
Last trip in this year? Not, but very, very nice. Great area with amazing friends – a lot of climbing and uphills. Some road, some gravel, and very fast descents. Fantastic place, and I will back there next year. Click read more to see route on Strava and some photos from this trip.Continue reading “Trip: Jizera Mountains”
