All of us here at Power Cordz are obsessed with performance. Not only are we proud to make the lightest bicycle control cables in the world, we are also concerned with every other aspect of cycling. Which got us thinking about the most important part of a bike, its rider. When we take in calories, we don't always use all the ones eat. We all know that these unused calories turn into fat, and when you haven't used 3,500 of them, you tack on a pound of fat to your body. But what happens when we tap into these energy reserves on a hard day?
If you were to ask most people what happens when someone losses a pound of fat, the answer is most often that it turns into heat, but that is definitely not the case. The Law of Conservation of Mass, makes it impossible to turn matter (fat) into energy (heat). So what really happens to it?
When you "burn" a molecule of body fat, it takes 78 molecules of Oxygen and through a fairly complex set of bio-chemical processes, your body turns it into 55 molecules of Carbon Dioxide, and 52 Molecules of water.
That's cool but where does the weight go?
84% of a pound of body is turned into Carbon Dioxide the other
16% is turned into water.
So most of the weight you lose, up to 88% is exhaled, the rest you sweat out.
I'd bet that's not what you were thinking, was it?
To finish it off, they used Swift housing, in the BYRDS livery, of course, and Yellow Cordz. While this frame has cable stops in it, the beauty of Swift is that you can still run a full length liner for maximum protection in the nastiest conditions. The only downside is we haven't figured to put Power Cordz on hydraulic brakes, yet...
Team Endurance put up an impressive performance Saturday at the Twilight Criterium in Boise Idaho. Some highlighter were Thomas being recognized as the youngest rider in the field. He had a solid performance and was still looking fresh as he sprinted to the finish line ahead of most of the pack. He, Chaz and Kyle finished very strong. Kyle had several impressive laps right off of the starting line single-handedly catching a breakaway and eventually dragging the rider back into the main group (which Chaz lead and controlled for much of the race). PowerCordz proudly sponsors the BYRDS.
3 Power Cordz Junior riders will be racing in the Men's Cat 1, 2, 3 race at this Saturday's 2016 Boise Twilight Criterium. Here's wishing Kyle, Chaz and Thomas, along with the rest BYRDS Cycling the best of luck!
Kyle and Chaz are rocking the sweet, flashy polished Swift beads and black Cordz. While Thomas has the stealth, black Prime system with White Cordz. All 3 bikes were able to drop almost half a pound vs the factory cables and housing!
