7-7 in the pedal battle: it seems like Look (counting the Garmin Exustars sans power among them because they use the same cleat system) is slightly coming back.
No Time except some personal choiches (Cunego?) and probably few others.

Appreciate any feedback you guys might have. We would love to offer more of this stuff, but need to know its worth the time invested!


As a subscriber to Ride I say a big yes to seeing more of it. Do you know Serge's FTP at all?

Wow -- that's one of the best-looking pro bikes I've ever seen. Neglecting the Shimano, of course.

James Huang is the best pro bike photographer in the business. He has the best eye for detail. I've looked at bikes @ shows and totally missed stuff he's picked up. He spends a lot of time, not only shooting but also talking with the involved parties. The man's a huge asset to Bike Radar / CyclingNews.

Are you serious? It's a black bike?

That TdU young rider leader jersey design is so bad that it's cool in a it was twenty years ago today kind of way.

It also says that Goss' setback is 4.5? Is that not breaking the rules?

I like the set up though, slick looking bike.

Could be morphological exemption, which is fairly easy to get in the US, at least. I agree with all comments on the photo.
