M5 full Carbon road- and track tandems, UCI legal

January 26th, 2020To the top
M5 full Carbon road- and track tandems, UCI legal
Road tandem (here still with standard handlebar in the rear)
In addition to the M5 recumbent bicycles, the 2-Spoke wheel (fastest wheel in the world) and the Minimal Bike, M5 has been designing and building tandems since 2018 for road and track commissioned by KNWU ( the National Dutch Bicycle Federation). The specially produced carbon prepreg tubes are made in the autoclave by the van Beurden Technics company in Tilburg. The aluminum molds for the pipes were milled by Sturm Machine Parts in Serooskerke. All in all a 100% Dutch product!
After a fairly intensive manufacturing period, we can rightly say that the carbon tubes fall into the space quality category. The very first tubes were produced using the vacuum bag method in the oven. Also good but a maximum of 0.9 Bar pressure ... I now dare to state that the tubes can easily withstand a truck traveling over it. Photos to follow!
All other components such as the 100% full carbon rear drop outs, rear and seat stays, steering head tubes and also the time trial handlebars are designed and produced in-house.

During World Cup competitions in September 2019, these tandems were by far the first in time trial.

Jaap Bouman (77) with his M5 Carbon High Racer: succeeded all long distance brevets to start at the non-stop Paris-Brest-Paris tour of 1250 km

Coming August 2019 it's there again: the event that returns every four years in France where around 6000! ultra long distance bicyclists from all over the world are starting.Twelve and eight years ago Jaap also took part in this and finished within the time limit, but now the challenge is of course even bigger with these extra years. A big difference, apart from the age, is the bike that he rode compared to the one he uses now. In 2007 it was a full Cr-Mo steel M5 Shock Proof which weighed more then 18 kg despite to the large and rather heavy luggage compartment, now it is a fully lightweight M5 Carbon High Racer with a starting weight of just over 9 kg. The bike is further adapted for the ultra-long trips with the very light Carbon Tail Bag which just hits 600 grams. Lighter than a bag, but due to its shape, it ensures 12 heart beats less at the same speed: profit on long journeys! By choosing this bike, Jaap has increased his average speed by as much as 5-6 km. His cruising speed is still around 26 to 27 km ( 16 a 17 mph) per hour. Latest contribution to gain even more time is the implementation of the record breaking M5 2- Spoke wheel. No more worries for loose spokes as well. A second major difference with 12 years ago is the support he receives from his remote trainer Robert Carlier: also practising as long distance cyclist, M5 customer and currently working as a physiotherapist in Oslo. Following his training methods Jaap has progressed amazingly despite aging and loss of muscle mass due to his age. To finish Paris-Brest-Paris successfully, participants must be returned within 90 hours.We will keep you informed, but just achieving the qualification is of course an achievement in itself with this age.
 

Multiple Paralympic- and World Champion Jetze Plat crushed the former worldhourrecord for handbiking with almost 3 km to an astonishing 44.749 km

March 17th, 2019To the top

Happy the 2-SPOKE wheels could contribute to this...

Multiple Paralympic- and World Champion Jetze Plat crushed the former worldhourrecord for handbiking with almost 3 km to an astonishing 44.749 kmIn the velodrome of Alkmaar, no fewer than 400 people cheered Jetze Plat in a really flat race crushing the existing record by almost 3 km ... Almost 180 laps were driven in the hour with a lapse of 0.1 second maximum. This is really unprecedented, even for a top athlete. His output was around 250 watts. Knowing this we can state that Jetze, with his arms only, overrules about 90% of the population who use LEG POWER instead...
 

Jetze Plat goes for a new World hourrecord in handbiking using the 2-Spoke wheels

Jetze Plat goes for a new World hourrecord in handbiking using the 2-Spoke wheels

On Wednesday the 13 th of March professional athlete Jetze Plat will make a record attempt to improve the world hour hand biking record. Currently this is a very respectable marathon distance of 42,165 km, but Jetze clearly wants much more ...
In addition to his unprecedented talent and ability, three 2-Spoke wheels will certainly help him to improve this. Also for the hand-bike configuration, these 2-Spoke wheels were faster than the so-called full disk wheels. In the meantime it is clear that more and more people realise that a completely closed wheel is definitely no longer the fastest possible wheel, certainly not in an outdoor situation but even indoors on windless tracks!
