Cav's bike for this year. Looks awful to me... Really 'busy'.

Hate the way the down tube arch doesn't follow same radius as the wheel ( if you know what i mean) also a carbon stem?

The Nibali pics aren't switched because you can see the higher stack on his elbow pads in the after. I was thinking the same thing, but BG Fit specialists aren't known for being geniuses although you don't know if he dropped his head more when riding.

Nicole Cooke's full retirement statement http://www.nicolecooke.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=1&Itemid=18

All I can say is I didn't think there was that big an issue with doping in womens racing, but this tells a different story. I also agree on the minimum wage issue for women that she goes into.

Seat looks pretty far forward... Fit seems a bit off.

Plus like Cambellray said, too busy.


He's a pro rider, he's not going to fit like normal people. Plus, he's Cav: his mechanics from both HTC and Sky have said that he makes huge changes on his bike fit from day to day depending on stage profile / how he feels when he gets out of bed!

And aesthetically it's not great but I think it'll settle down a lot with some normal wheels on it. The monstrous logos on the 808's are overwhelming the rest of the bike, and they'll hardly ever be riding wheels that deep.

I am sad that Nicole Cooke's quit . It was very interesting reading between the lines and suspicion must now fall on a lot of the top women riders including GB riders, the ones she did not wish well. Nicole makes some fair points but the harsh facts of doping are there to see. Nicole was one of my fav riders and her world and olympic wins are 2 of the most fantastic races I have seen , man or woman. Maybe she may come back in time . Amazing to think she won clean. A fantastic champion.

However people are saying that she should have gone one step further and outed the people in the camper she refers to in her statement. For all we know she maybe have already anyway

Hating a 'drivetrain' choice on one bike vs. another is as imbecile as people getting into fist-fights at a motor race that they are not actually racing in Australia over a debate between two car companies. It really is ridiculous.

Looks (hehe) like Jerome Coppels bike, seeing the Rotor rings. He has always had an extreme position on the TT bike.

If Nicole had outed riders while she was racing , she would not have anyone to race against
