Eta and Eta prime update
August 13, 2015 by jnyyz
It’s a little more than a month before WHPSC 2015, and both Aerovelo and HPVDT are busy working along parallel tracks. Aerovelo has been fine tuning their bike from last year, Eta, in preparation for a final round of testing before the big event.
Here is Victor, who is still working for Aerovelo on an occasional basis. He hopes to be able to come out to Battle Mountain if he files his thesis before the end of the month.
He says that DI2 shifting makes it much more convenient to take the stem out of the bike without having to tweak the shifting every time.
Meanwhile, HPVDT is busy building Eta prime. They have most of the major components done, and are preparing for final assembly. Here is Calvin with the front wheel.
Here is the frame almost complete.
and one of the halves of the front fairing.
More updates to follow as September approaches!
