I'd Like to know how many different pairs of wheels there are in all those pics. How many are borrowed from other pros? Do you think each one of those pros bought their own wheels? Like Pantani, the wheels he rode belonged to Cipo.

well, do a search, and you will have homework reading for weeks!

Basically ADAs came after the LWs, have round profile spokes, have a different braking surface, are about 1.5X as expensive and supposedly not as stiff as LWs.

Cipo ordered six pairs, thats what Heinz Obermayer told me when i talked to him in that time. I suppose he gave some pairs out to his teamates at several occasions, so maybe the wheels Lombardi is using are also some of Cipos.

You shouldn't leave your CFK equipment in the car in summer. Like LJs, he's obviously been to mallorca too much. :D

Wow TiVo, great picture of Zabel and Bartko.

I can't wait to see Robert Bartko in action (hopefully on those great LWs) here in the Six Days of Ghent (www.zesdaagse.be) next week!!



Thanks to all of you that have contributed to this topic.

Special thanks to Johan Coenen, a pro on Weight Weenies ànd on Lightweights! He rocks!!! :thumbup: :wink:



BTW: Is Adam Hansen (zakeen) riding LWs?

Yes he had/has some. I think he said he had an issue with them. I believe one broke on him and had to send it back for a new one. I'm not sure if it was a "Just Riding Along" incident or a "Rode through a car-swallowing pothole" incident.

Dude, nice bike - but is it me or is he like WAY too big for it? It looks like he's like 6'4" riding a 46cm DogmaFP. :lol: The things these guys will do to save a few grams...

He was, but broke his front wheel. Now he is on a handbuilt set, if I'm not mistaken... :)

Anyone know what those tyres Bartko has on his Lightweights are? I'm guessing Continentals.
