North America’s biggest bicycle trade show, Interbike, continues for its second day. Here are some of the eye-catching bikes and gear on display. The Toronto-based Cervélo relaunched its R Series of road bikes, designed for tackling tough climbs, this past May. Once you’ve reached the top of a col on this R3, you’ll have excellent braking control and power with the Shimano Dura-Ace rotors and calipers.
The night before Interbike gets underway officially, media are offered a sneak peek at newsworthy gear. Here are a few highlights. While Smith is set to show off six new helmets on Wednesday, the company had two on display. The Network is a road lid that works for your commutes and group rides. The Session is for your rides on the trail.
Interbike is North America’s biggest bike trade show. Here are highlights of what’s new and cool among the hundreds of brands and booths. Pioneer continues to have a strong offering of power meters for Shimano cranks. Pioneer has a single-side power meter out now for the new Ultegra 8000. The full dual-leg unit will be out in December. The Japan-based electronics company is also launching an app for its Cyclo-Sphere data-analysis system. Currently, Cyclo-Sphere is browser-based on mobile and desktop.
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".
