Welcome new blogroll members

I’ve added a few new sites to the blogroll and thought I should make mention of them:

Are you tired of seeing people posting pictures of shiny new carbon bike parts?  If so, then you should check out Busted Carbon, by “FigBug” (love the name). This site features nothing but photos of broken carbon fiber bicycle components – cranksets, forks, frames, you name it. If it’s made of carbon and it broke, it will appear on this site. The most recent entry – Busted TT Bike – was submitted by somebody who actually crashed their carbon time trial bike and broke both the fork and the frame – imagine that!

It’s been a long time since I’ve had to take any exams or tests, but I wish I would have had access to ZERO out of FIVE back in those days so if I didn’t know the answers I could at least flame out in style. As enticement, check out this entry from Epic Test FAIL!!!:

Last but not least, I’d like to welcome the amazing Austin “Aztec” Allison back to my blogroll. Austin resurrected his long dormant blog, Tete de la Course, at the beginning of this year, and 11 posts since then suggests he might make this a regular thing.  Welcome back, Austin!
