Plus size wheels. B+. 29+. 26+. Take your pick. It seems that no matter where you look these days, wider rims and tyre combos are taking over the world. As something of a convert to all things fat, the advantages of improved traction and control that come with increasing your tyre footprint now seem self-evident to me. However, one of the downsides is that the fatter you go, the more likely it is that you will need to invest in a new frame and / or fork.
Despite dipping their toe in the water of the mountain bike market with the now discontinued but much missed Ardent shorts, Haglofs are a Scandinavian outdoor company with a long heritage in producing outdoor kit predominantly for walkers, climbers and runners. With the L.I.M.
“Sanny. We have some kit for you to test that should be right up your street!”Immediately my interest is piqued and my mind starts to wander. What will it be? Di2 XTR groupset? The latest carbon wunderbike that weighs about as much as a small bag of feathers with a helium chaser? Reactive night lights that are blue tooth, Instagram and Twitter enabled and which can live cast my night ride to the watching public? Or…. I struggle to contain my excitement. Towels, they just aren’t, well, sexy!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
