Another running change to all frames is the removal of the braze-on front derailleur mount. The frames now require clamp-on front mechs, so he builds on a small alloy ring since the frame tubes are not round.ArgonautCycles.com Argonaut founder Ben Farver sent some fantastic photos of his new Gravel Racer for our pre-show interview, but seeing it in real life was even better.He built it to handle competitive events like the Oregon Stampede, which is about 70% gravel. It’s not a a gravel grinder, and not meant to add rack or panniers. It’s a race ready bike that just happens to be designed for rough surfaces.To do that, he takes your ideal road race bike and makes it a bit more stable. For Ben’s own bike, that meant about 5mm longer chainstay length, 3mm more BB drop and half a degree slacker head angle. It’s all custom though, so your version will be right for you.“The idea is to expand your range,” he said. “To let you get further on more roads.” This bike won best in show for NAHBS 2014.This one’s for a customer that travels with it and wanted a standard seat post, but Farver says he’d still use the ISP on most frames but build in a bit more compliance than on the road bikes. If you recall from our long term review, Ben uses the ISP to dial in the ride feel all the way up to the saddle.The non-drive chainstay only had to be reinforced under the caliper mount. The seat stay is the same, so ride quality should be the same. It’s 70g more for the disc dropouts and reinforcement, and Farver says a complete disc bike will be about 1.5 pounds heavier than a comparably built rim brake bike.The Gravel Racer will sell for $6,700 $6,500 for frame and fork, same as their standard road bike framesets go for $6,500 with rim brakes in mind. Because it’s all custom, it can basically become a disc brake road bike, too.The SL prototype we saw last year didn’t become a separate model. Instead, he infused the ballistics material into all of the frames. Farver says he was initially thinking the SL frames would be a little more delicate and have to have a shorter warranty. But, they ended up being stronger, so he put it in all the bikes, including the new gravel racer.So, in addition to being lighter, the alternate material adds durability while allowing a higher proportion of lighter weight hi-mod carbon. And it soaks up vibration. The result is a bike that’s a bit lighter but a lot smoother.
Jimmy Walker wins the first Major of his career, which also makes it a clean sweep for first time Major winners. In most recent years this hasn’t happened since 2003, and 2011. Walker entered the final round with the lead along side Robert Streb, but Jimmy Walker would finish in dramatic fashion as Streb would fall and miss out on a chance to qualify for next year’s Masters. Walker would drain a clutch birdie putt on 17 to go 14 under for the tournament and go up 3 strokes. Little did he know that Jason Day would make eagle on 18 just one hole ahead of him and put the pressure on by cutting the lead to one. But knowing that he had to only par to win the title, Walker would finish with a par after having to send his third shot over a bunker out of thick rough with very little green to work with, two putt, and take sole possession of the title of 2016 PGA Champion. The course was a sight to see as usual, venerable and picturesque, Baltusrol GC in Springfield, NJ was visited by a storm, which delayed the tournament and forced some players to crunch two rounds into the final day…they played for nearly 12 hours. 36 holes in one day is a bit of a task to say the least. The PGA loathes Monday finishes for business reason obviously. Last years champion Jason Day could and should have won this tournament with the way he played. But unfortunately he let it get away after a rough bogey, par, bogey start. Other familiar faces such as The Open Champion Henrik Stenson would finish tied for 7th at 8 under, Jordan Spieth finished at 6 under, Phil Mickelson 3 under. Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, and Matt Kuchar all missed the cut. FedEx Cup Standings top five remains the same with Johnson, Day, Scott, Spieth, Snedecker respectively. Walker with the win should be inside the top 20. Now comes the time when players must rally to make the FedEx Cup Playoffs and play for the FedEx Cup Championship, so even though the Majors are over and done with, there is still plenty of good golf to be had. The Race for the FedEx Cup begins. There are 3 more tournaments worth 500 FedEx Cup points, and the last four tournaments are all worth 2,000 points each. Next weekend, August 4-7, TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut will host the Travel’s Championship. Last year’s champion: Bubba Watson in a two-hole playoff over Paul Casey.

Liffey Celtics lost their first game of the season last Sunday evening thanks to a stunning three-point shooting exhibition from Pyrobel Killester, which saw them win out 109-86 against the Cup champions. This result has made the battle at the top of the table extremely interesting, with Liffey now on one loss and DCU Mercy sitting on their heels with three losses. Liffey have had the better of the sides’ meetings this year, overcoming DCU at home in their first clash in the league, before putting in a clinical performance against them in the National Cup semi-final in Cork. Revenge will certainly be on the cards for Mark Ingle’s DCU charges though, and they will be hoping to defend their home court in style on Sunday afternoon.Elsewhere around the women’s league, the battle for crucial top slots is raging on in earnest. One of the other big clashes of the weekend sees the Cork derby meeting of Fr Mathews and Singleton SuperValu Brunell this Saturday, in what is a repeat of the Cup semi-final showdown in early January. Brunell got the better of that clash, but this weekend’s derby will undoubtedly come down to the wire between these two sides. NUIG Mystics meanwhile face off against Pyrobel Killester in Galway on Saturday and will be hoping to get some vital points on the board. A big battle will also tip off in Kilkenny this weekend as Marble City Hawks welcome Maxol WIT Wildcats while Ambassador UCC Glanmire will be hoping to maintain their spot on the table when they welcome IT Carlow Basketball to Cork on Saturday evening.A big decider in the Men’s Super League will tip off in Tralee this weekend as Garvey’s Tralee Warriors host Pyrobel Killester in a huge clash at the Sports Complex. Tralee have played 12 games to date and have lost just four, to see them on the same loss record as league leaders, Templeogue, while Killester have lost five of their 13 games. The two sides most recently met in the Hula Hoops Cup semi-final in January, with Ciaran Roe delivering a polished 34-point performance for Killester to see them through that tie.Top of the table Templeogue meanwhile will be hoping to banish Demons this weekend when they welcome the Cork side to Oblate Hall. The Dubliners, who have played 14 games so far this season, need to pick up the points from this clash in a bid to stay slightly ahead of the chasing pack, while UCC Demons also need a big performance this weekend in order to stay in the vital top six spot.Elsewhere, UCD Marian will be hoping to keep momentum from last weekend’s win against Templegoue when they host Maree in Dublin on Saturday evening. Maree have proven to be a tough opponent for Marian recently, beating them in Oranmore in their last league meeting. C and S Neptune will welcome Belfast Star to Cork on Saturday, while Moycullen and DCU Saints go head-to-head in Galway.BasketballIreland Fixtures: February 16th and 17thSaturday16th February 2019 BasketballIreland Men’s Super League: C and S Neptune v Belfast Star, Neptune Stadium, 19:00;UCD Marian v Maree, UCD Sports Centre-Belfield,19:00;Moycullen v DCU Saints, NUIG, 19:30;Garvey’s Tralee Warriors v Pyrobel Killester, TraleeSports Complex, 19:30;Templeogue v UCC Demons, Oblate Hall Inchicore,20:00; BasketballIreland Women’s Super League: NUIG Mystics v Pyrobel Killester, BallinfoileCastlegar Neighbourhood Centre-Headford Rd, 16:30;Fr Mathews v Singleton SuperValu Brunell, Fr MathewsArena, 17:00;Marble City Hawks v Maxol WIT Wildcats, O LoughlinGaels Gym, 19:00;Ambassador UCC Glanmire v IT Carlow Basketball,Mardyke Arena, 19:00;BasketballIreland Men’s Division One: Tradehouse Central Ballincollig v LYIT Donegal,Ballincollig CS, 16:00;UL Sports Eagles v Ulster University Elks, PESS Building-UL,17:00;LIT v EJ Sligo All-Stars, Limerick IT Sportshall,18:00;Limerick Celtics v GameFootage.net Titans, StMunchins, 18:30;Waterford Vikings v DBS Eanna, Waterford IT, 19:00;Scotts Lakers St Pauls Killarney v Abbey SealsDublin Lions, Killarney SC, 19:30;Fr Mathews v KUBS BC, Fr Mathews Arena, 19:45; A top of the table clash in the Women’s Super Leagueis in store this weekend as second placed DCU Mercy welcome league leaders,Courtyard Liffey Celtics to DCU on Sunday afternoon.
