Fiona Shaw Replaces Deborah Warner as the Director of Eugene Onegin at the Met

first_imgTony nominated actor Fiona Shaw will replace her frequent collaborator, the Tony-nominated helmer Deborah Warner, as the director of the Metropolitan Opera’s season-opening production of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. According to The New York Times, Warner is unable to direct her staging at the Met “due to an unexpected surgical procedure and the anticipated recovery time.”Eugene Onegin will open the Met season September 23 and continue through December 12. The production will mark Shaw’s Met debut. Her previous directing credits include Henze’s Elegy for Young Lovers, Vaughan Williams’ Riders to the Sea and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro at English National Opera, and an upcoming production of Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia at the Glyndebourne Festival.Shaw was most recently seen on Broadway in Colm Toibin’s Tony-nominated play The Testament of Mary, which was directed by Warner and closed May 5 at the Walter Kerr Theatre after 16 regular performances. Her many other theater credits include Medea (for which she received a Tony nomination), Happy Days, Mother Courage, Hedda Gabler, The Good Person of Sichuan and The Waste Land.

Road to NAHBS 2014: Kish Moves Titanium Frame Fabrication to North Carolina

first_imgBuilder Jim Kish is no stranger to fabulous titanium welds. He’s won awards at NAHBS in the past, and he’s brought some rather interesting accoutrements –titanium mason jar cage, anyone- to embellish the bikes. Bikes like a full titanium BMX race rig. This year, it sounds like things might be a bit more normal but no less beautiful. We can’t wait to see what’s hiding in the details…BIKERUMOR: What are your main building materials?KISH: Titanium. We do a few steel bikes each year, but that’s a rarity.BIKERUMOR: What’s new with your company since NAHBS last year?KISH: The biggest shift for us has probably been redesigning our cyclocross and touring bikes for disc brakes. A lot of our cross bikes have always been a little more robust, what people are calling ‘gravel grinders’ now, so discs are a great fit. The back ends have been redone with stouter s-bend stays, and the head tubes accommodate tapered disc forks. BIKERUMOR: Any killer custom bike builds in that time?KISH: More 650B mountain bikes, and all sorts of cross bikes, disc and canti.BIKERUMOR: Say a customer gives you free reign, where do you draw your inspiration for the best projects?KISH: The best bikes we build are the ones where our customers leave it up to us to make the bulk of the decisions on design and components, and allow us to put together a super reliable, really fun bike. My inspiration comes from being able to hop on the bike and go, whenever you want, without needing to putz around with maintenance.BIKERUMOR: What are you building this year that’ll draw a crowd?KISH: We’re bringing a little of everything. Road, mountain, cross and city. I’m hoping that a pile of nice titanium bikes will be enough to pull in the visitors, as well as the North Carolinians who haven’t figured out that we moved here yet.BIKERUMOR: Scenario: NAHBS introduces a new category called Mashups, pairing two completely different builders to make one bike. Who’s the yin to your yang, and what kind of bike do you think you’d build?KISH: Our bikes tend to be driven by function, rather than a lot of overt, fancy stuff. In a conversation, Dale Brown described them as ‘Bauhaus’ which may be accurate, I’m not smart enough to know.I do appreciate the fancy, though, and in my opinion the best practitioner of the curvy tube, cool paint aesthetic is Curtis Inglis (Retrotec). He was doing all that sort of thing years before anyone else rediscovered the old cruiser styles, and he does it way better than anyone else. We have already worked together on titanium versions of his bikes, it’d be fun to do some more someday.KishBike.comlast_img read more

Framed Bikes bring SRAM eTap to the Rodez for one heck of a deal

first_imgRear Hub: DT Swiss 240S 11 speed, 28 hole, 135mm QR Photo c. Framed BikesEarlier this year, Framed bundled SRAM’s Rival group into the Rodez, a mid-level carbon road bike for $1,700. Now, they’ve upped the ante by offering the same frame, this time with a SRAM Red eTap drivetrain for just $3,299. Adding to the value are tubeless ready PUB carbon wheels, a high modulus carbon frame/fork, and TRP HY/RD (cable ⇒ hydraulic) disc brakes. We’re guessing the use of the mechanical SRAM eTap group matched with the HY/RD brakes might be one of the areas Framed was able to save on the build costs. The full SRAM Red eTap drivetrain includes a 52/36 tooth crank and an 11-26 11-speed cassette.Additional specs include: Frame: Framed High Modulus Carbon Fiber frame 135mm QR. Integrated headset, internal cable and housing routing Headset: FSA Orbit C-40 Integrated Fork: Framed High Modulus Carbon Fiber fork 100mm QR Rims: PUB Carbon 700RD-38-AS-28 Saddle: Selle Italia X1 Flow Rotors: TRP 140mm front and rear Tires: Maxxis RE-Fuse 700x25c 120 TPI Folding Bead Seat Post: Framed Lightweight Aluminum Alloy 400mm x 31.6mm Electronic shifting has been around for a while now, and bikes that come with it often carry a *cough* decent price tag. Framed Bikes is changing that standard by putting SRAM’s eTap on rollback with the Rodez. What makes their road bike stand out from other carbon bikes, with similar groupsets, is its price tag. Coming from the world of fat bikes, maybe they’re just not used to how much these things usually go for… Taking all the parts into consideration, the $3,300 price tag is a fairly aggressive offer. It’s only available in 52, 54, and 57cm frames, though, so here’s hoping it fits.FramedBikes.com Bar Stem: Framed Aluminum 100mm Threadless, 6 degree rise, 4 bolt Front Hub: DT Swiss 240S, IS 28 hole, 100mm QR Handlebars: Framed Lightweight Alloy 6061, Compact Droplast_img read more

Tradeshow Randoms: Part One – CarboCage, ZenCranks, Ryde, Pinhead, iBike & More!

first_imgWe’re on the home stretch now, with a few final collections of things that mostly didn’t have a home in any particular category. Everything from lights to electronics to single components to new pedal/cleat systems that claim to increase your power output. It’s all fun to look at – here we go!Carbocage had their usual assortment of super light carbon fiber bits and pieces, with a rainbow of colors for the anodized bits. Above, their steerer tube top caps, and below are derailleur pulleys and chainrings… Nothing really new from the brand this year, we just like looking at the parts.Spotted these marbled carbon rims at a wheel brand who’s name escaped me. Upon asking what was special about them or if there were any tech details worth mentioning, we got a nonresponse so there were no notes taken. Pretty, though.Netherlands-based Ryde showed off their 260g road bike rim prototype. While they wouldn’t disclose the material, Scandium is a good bet. They also have a new 27.5″ mountain bike rim available in their Edge extrusion.Samox appears to be mainly a private label manufacturer, of which many set up at the trade shows to show off their capabilities. Their new Road 2-in-1 chainrings look an awful lot like Cannondale’s SpiderRings by combining numerous thin arms with single-piece double chainring designs. Pinhead introduced new all-in-one Ultimate Security kits that include a small U-lock with locking axles/pins for both wheels, your saddle, seatpost and headset. It’s keyed the same, so you only need one key to secure it all.The saddle one (bottom left) was something we hadn’t seen before and a nice bit of additional security if you’ve got a really high end Brooks’ style saddle.ZenCranks PAS (Power Acceleration System) has an interesting take on crankarm and pedal setup. The crank arms and a pedal adapter have been around for a few years, but these pedals are new and make for a more streamlined appearance. Essentially, they use crankarms that are ~15mm longer than normal (175mm riders would run a 190mm ZenCrank) with offset pedal spindles.The pedal sits higher than normal, and the combination supposedly gives you more leverage on the downstroke and throughout the most powerful part of your pedal stroke, then feels like a normal crank on the upstroke because the pedal is sitting closer to the BB.The ZenSlip pedal cleat spacers attempt to mimic some of those benefits without replacing your entire crankset. These seem to still be a work in progress…or their website is very much out of date since neither of the new products are listed yet.Orontas is a Canadian maker of bicycle care products that are all naturally, sustainably sourced. Honestly, I thought this was a body care line when I first walked up, the packaging is very much like a line of lotions and such. Should stand out in a shop.Click to enlarge for easier reading.Introduced earlier in the year, the Syntace C6 clip on aerobar system streamlines the entire assembly for a more aerodynamic package. Foam grips on the ends make them a bit safer but still work with bar end shifters. The center fairing smooths air along the bottom and over the stem, gently leading it into the frame for less drag compared to traditional clip ons.The also had this extremely low drop stem for 35mm OS handlebars. Top tube says “ouch”!We first spotted iBike a couple years ago with their all-in-one iSport power measuring cycling computer. It’s come a long way since then, with the introduction of the Newton version and, now, the Newton+.The iBike Newton+ has more features, like built in wireless, 4x the memory and a claimed power data measurement that matches units from PowerTap, SRM, etc. In their tests, they’re within 3 watts average of standard strain gauge power meters.The Newton+ Power Stroke adds left/right power balance and body movement. It does this by using the cadence sensor to tell it which pedal stroke is happening, and an accelerometer in the computer tells it how much the bike is swaying back and forth or front and back. That takes energy, which the program shows as wasted energy. It also graphically animates your pedal stroke and bike movement so you can see just how good or bad your form is. There’s video of it on their website.The best part is all that info is available to current owners as a firmware update.Other improvements on both the Newton and Newton+ include a fin at the front of the air intake that significantly improves performance in crosswinds. Both new units have a built in rechargeable battery and quicker, easier set up on up to four bikes.They also have the new Newton Tracker app that tracks GPS data from your ride, sends the data to the cloud and automatically syncs that data to your ride data when you upload the ride info from the Newton to your computer. And all if the ride data can be easily sent to Strava and Training Peaks from within the program.If your unfamiliar with iBike, they measure wind speed against forward motion and slope (incline) from the accelerometer to determine power. Set up on the new units takes just a few minutes by simply doing a short back and forth ride and inputting your body information.Lastly, they also have a new TT Mount that’ll put the Newton on aero bar extensions.last_img read more
