Shimano vs SRAM

Takúto otázku by som si položil, keby som si šiel kupovať nový bicykel podľa svojich predstáv. Nič také nehrozí, ale aj tak ma zaujímal hlavný rozdiel. Doteraz som jazdil a jazdím len na prevodoch od Shimana. Viacmenej som ani nikdy neuvažoval o inej sade. Odjakživa som považoval bicykle s Deore a vyššou sadou za čosi, na čom sa dá už poriadne jazdiť. Veď aj na mojom Altuse sa dá, ale je to trocha iná kategória. Stačila mi jedna jazda s Alivio-m, aby som vedel, že Altus je určený na jazdu do obchodu a späť.

Americká firma SRAM má okrem prevodových systémov pod sebou už aj Rock Shox, Avid, Truvativ. Skoro celý bicykel pod jednou značkou. Prednosťou SRAM-u je vraj pomer 1:1, čo znamená o koľko posuneme riadiacu páčku, o toľko sa posunie prehadzovač (napr.). Shimano používa pomer 2:1. Pomer 1:1 je vraj odolnejší a stálejší, pretože je jednoduchší. SRAM použil ako prvý grip shift, čo mne lezie na nervy. Takých ale bolo viacej, tak začal vyrábať aj páčky Attack. Veľa sa diskutuje o pevnosti zadného prehadzovača pri kazete. Ako sa správajú obidva systémy pri zjazde je dobre vidieť na tomto videu:



Tento problém u Shimana by mal byť vyriešený v sade 08. Tiež je otázne, či je na bicykli dobre napnutá reťaz. Celkovo sa dá povedať, že otázka výberu je len otázka vkusu. Veľmi rád by som si SRAM vyskúšal a porovnal s ekvivalentým systémom od Shimana. Jednotlivé časti sa vraj dajú kombinovať, ale to by som veľmi neriskoval.

First Hawaii, then Oregon

Why? Hawaii - the international conference on MR (ISMRM) happened to be in Honolulu in 2017. Oregon - to counterbalance volcanic islands with sunny beaches and volcanic mountain with snow.

Part One: No Glamping in Hawaiian Islands

Island One: Kauai



After comfy 24-hour economy flights with Eva and Fabian, and just as I started to watch Moana, we landed in Lihue (Kauai). I assembled with Pedro, we took a rental car and quickly found our room in cosy Kauai Palms Hotel. For lunch next day we met Andrea in Kapaa and together we headed to see Wailua Falls, not far from Lihue. We left Andrea in Kapaa later that day and for our next night we were going to camp at Koke'e State Park Campground (thanks Evka for help with fixing my tent!). The night was very cold, roosters were loud and views from Kalalau Lookout were astonishing! It was time to warm up and see some beach so we decided to get a nice cup of coffee and visit a beach with restricted access for rental cars - Barking Sands Beach in 

Yamaha S08 - sticky keys repair

My keyboard Yamaha S08 suffered from several "sticky keys" disease already a year, perhaps more. That saying, I am pretty bad piano player. However, I like to have my devices fully functional for any cases.
I have found a very helpful guide, but with no photos. I made some for better visualization of the repair.
First, I unfastened all screws from both sides:

Second, I unfastened all screws from a wooden base plate which were holding the part with electronics.


Then I unfastened the golden screws holding the whole keyboard to the wood. The keyboard was now accessible from both sides.

The last step is described in the following video. It was just removing the sticky keys and reinserting them without a metal spring coming inside. The end of the metal spring has been left outside of the key:


So far it works well!

Inspiring music in Casey Neistat's vlogs

After watching a few vlogs by Casey Neistat on Youtube, I couldn't help notice the well-chosen music in the background. Particularly music by one artist named Julian Avila. Here is his music: https://soundcloud.com/julian_avila
Inspired, I took several months old videos I shot on GoPro Hero 2 when I was biking to Kahlenberg in the rain. After a few hours and two whiskeys, this came from my computer:
