Thank you, Fallbrook Technologies Inc. (Fallbrook) for your donation to AYW’s Bike Corps program! Not only will the N171B NuVinci continuously variable planetary (CVP) drivetrains for our bicycles make alternative transportation and fitness through biking more accessible to our students, but students will get a chance to practice real world math and science skills when installing them on the Bike Corps bikes. In addition, Bike Corps students will be ahead of the curve by learning bike maintenance on this brand new technology.
On February 24, Kim Merrill and Dave Rosen of Fallbrook met with Bike Corps students Chris Estran and Troy Riley to make the donation and train the students about the mechanics of the new CVP drivetrains. As an added bonus, the Bike Corps will tour Fallbrook’s research and development facility in Cedar Park to learn more about job opportunities and real world applications for the skills they are learning in their classes. Thank you Fallbrook for making these opportunities available for our students!
