“If you’re in a bike shop and Svein Tuft walks in, it’s like seeing Captain America. Or if he showed up on your group ride, it would be like riding with a superhero. So, it’s wasn’t that big of an extension,” said Matt Hansen, the creator of the Symmetrics Pro Cycling Team comic book, S Team. Symmetrics is a Canadian continental team that ran from 2005 to 2008.
It feels like having a tailwind all the time. That was the feedback Ben Pye, technical specialist at Shimano Canada, heard from a tester using the Shimano Steps system on an ebike. One reason a mid-drive motor makes an ebike feel more bike-like is the placement of the unit. The mid-drive motor sits at a bike’s bottom-bracket area. “A mid-drive motor centralizes the weight and balances the bike better,” Pye says.
On May 31, Lily Gordon, an 8-year-old rider from Calgary, crashed on her bike. She was participating in a Trailblazers event put on by Cyclemeisters/Bowcycle in Shaganappi Park. Her parents were organizers of the race that featured kids on mountain and cyclocross bikes, and even some on balance bikes. “Our six-year-old son loves racing, but Lily is struggling with it a bit,” said Shannon Gordon, Lily’s mother.
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".
