A 10 speed bike, and road bicycles in general, feature sleek designs that aim to eliminate as much drag as possible.

Bohn was not afraid to stray from the conservative well worn path followed by many of his peers.Bohn’s eight year tenure ended this week when he submitted his resignation after Chancellor Phil DiStefano informed him he planned to hire a new athletic director and offered Bohn reassignment within the university.Opinions vary on Bohn and his track record leading the Buffs, a program he grew up rooting for as he came of age here in Boulder.For some it begins and ends with the failures of the football program under his leadership.
