More importantly what's Abdujaparov, and Boardman doing next to Chiappucci on this climb? :lol:

Chiappucci past his best and the times when EPO flowed like wine...;)

As a Greg fan and proud owner of a 90's Lemond TSX Maillot Jaune, I would welcome his return to the market. TBH I wasn't a fan of the Trek Lemonds, so I hope he doesn't go a similar route.

I still have my Bilato Lemond TSX MJ- Team Z. I picked it up in 1990 from the shop I worked at, TSDI had a great dealer incentive program at the time. I was never a fan of post Bilato, Della Santa built Lemond's.

I thought Della Santa built his early frames before he turned pro?

I still haven't seen anything, anywhere (outside this thread) to suggest that LeMond is bringing his name back to a line of bicycles.

Della Santa built his early frames, and also built some of the Lemond commercial frames. I think after Della Santa he moved production to Bilato.

Oh how I wish they would make Spinaci bars again with a 31.8 mm clamp diameter.


I just saw some Spinaci on sale @ a local shop, super-cheap. I resisted, even though I still cling to 26.0 as the superior option.

My preference for sub-40 cm bars has finally proven popular. I'm not too hopeful on 26.0 staging a comeback soon, however.



Are you small dj? I have narrow shoulders but riding any narrower than 44cc is very difficult and creates other issues like hand cramp/numbness. 5ft 11in 75kg.

Cheers

How can narrower bar cause hand cramps? What are the measurements of your shoulders: top of the shoulder from the boney protrusion on the right to the other boney protrusion on the left.

He's left a number of builders by the wayside, probably better off and who knows how worse for wear. The Clark Kents were the coolest--wished I had one back then but went with a Road Logic instead. Not interested anymore.

In response to the earlier question: I have narrow shoulders, fitting 38 cm bars using the usual method. Wider feel like my arms are splayed out. I prefer the feeling of straight arms: more support.

Only just seen question. 38cm. My thoughts are that narrowing hand position causes pinching of nerves in shoulder joints. Interested to read that Boonen is now on narrower bars 42 outside.

33, 35, and 37cm have become popular on the track. I've been using 35cm bars for a month and have come to prefer them. Chris Hoy was using 33cm Alpina bars despite his size, and now I believe is using a custom GB team bar in the same width.

Utter BS.
Narrower bars are stiffer, offer less flex and are theoretically lighter therefore work well on the track for those short efforts and some sprinters like them for guess what?

As far as ergonomics go isn't it ideal and logical to match your bar width closely to your shoulder width?
Of course some people will go into the extreme to try things out but eventually end up going to where it should be where things are balanced.
