Want your students to remember math or science class the next time they ride a bike? Give them an inside look at what it takes to build and test durable, high-tech bike wheels. In the assembly room, spokes are plucked like guitar strings to ensure equal tension and a balanced load. In a test room, a custom machine is subjecting a wheel to 4.4 million bumps! Behind the scenes, high performance bikes are all about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
