Bicycle tires are notoriously expensive, but Austins makes a lot of them for as little as $5.
They’re also notoriously bad.
In the early 2000s, a team of Austins engineers came up with a new way to make the tires better by applying pressure to the outer rim of the rim.
Their idea was to use a bead of epoxy on the outer side of the tire, to help it bond to the rubber.
They tested the idea on a bicycle that was ridden by a man named Austins, and the results were pretty good.
When the epoxy dried, it made the tires much more durable, and in the process they discovered something new: a problem that hadn’t been discovered before: The tires’ outer rim didn’t have a bead.
It was made of a rubber compound called “dextrose.”
These compounds are pretty brittle and can fracture easily when they get wet.
To prevent that, Austins started using a special material called “compressed” epoxy that could resist the forces exerted by the tire’s rubber compound.
The result was that Austins tires were more durable and lighter than their cheap counterparts.
When you’re riding a bike, it’s easy to get lost in the complexity of what’s going on in the world around you.
It’s easier to lose yourself in the sensations that are unfolding on the road, when you’re not paying attention, when there’s nothing else going on, or when your attention wanders from one place to another.
The way that Austens tires respond to pressure, on the other hand, makes the experience of riding them feel completely natural.
You’re not distracted by the tiny details that can be obscured by the noise of other cars or by the wind.
And when you feel comfortable on the bike, the way that your feet are gripping the pedals feels comfortable, too.
So, in the early days of bike touring, when people were riding on the roads of the world, people would get lost.
The bikes would get worn and they’d get loose.
And they’d fall.
So they’d take their bikes and sell them to the next town over.
And then the next thing they’d do was buy another bike.
And the next, and then the last.
And that cycle repeated, for decades, until the Austins bikes were the most popular bicycles on the planet.
Austins was so proud of their success that they had to pay a visit to the local mechanic to prove that the epoxies were working.
“We were able to show the mechanics the process,” Austins marketing director Chris Clements said.
“And he said, ‘What do you think?’
And I said, `It’s pretty good.’
So he goes, `Let’s try this again, and we’ll see if it works better.’
And they did, and they gave it a try.
And it worked.”
A lot better than the bikes of the 1970s.
In 1980, Austens launched a brand new line of bicycles called the “Cronin.”
These bikes were more expensive than the other models, but the difference in the performance was significant.
Austens had discovered a new kind of bicycle, one that had the advantage of being able to handle a lot more force than a lot less.
Austons bikes were much more stable and much lighter.
Austuses engineers were even able to take advantage of the fact that a lot people were using bikes with wheels rather than tires, and so they designed a series of bicycle frames that were both lightweight and had wheels.
In 1985, Austons started selling their bicycles to a new market: the cycling-oriented professional.
These professional cyclists weren’t buying cheap bikes.
They were riding them because they wanted to be able to ride on the best roads, with the most comfortable gear and the most stable tires they could afford.
But for many of these riders, Austys bikes were just not good enough.
A couple of years after they launched the first cronin, the company came under fire for its tire prices.
Austintons bike tires were often $30 or $40 a pair, compared with $1 or $2 a pair for competitors.
The tires were also too thin and didn’t stretch as much as Austins promised.
Austints sales plummeted, and soon the company was looking for ways to improve its performance.
In 1991, Austintos’ tire supplier, Dymont, began producing lightweight, high-performance tires for racing bikes.
Austos’ tires had the same problems Austins’ had: they didn’t last as long as the competition’s tires.
Austinains had made a big mistake, and now they needed to fix it.
They began by redesigning the crank and shifting mechanism of the cronins, so that the tire was more stable.
And to make sure that the bike was durable enough to handle the abuse that the riders and racers put on it
