According to Hamilton recent interview, it would be Cancellara.

I would be very disappointed to find out Cancellara doped. I thought his cheating was confined to use of Gruber Assist.

sexist? of course it's sexist. 100% sexist, and 100% real. welcome to planet earth sweetheart.

did you heard that santa claus doesn't exist, that it's just our parents?

Ah, I can also add to that that the level in ciclocross in USA is so much lower than in small countries like belgium and the netherlands. I guess this is racist, right?

Wiggins is not off O Sys yet.

I pm'ed this to someone else recently, but I have an acquaintance that rides for Sky and asked him what the low down on the use of these rings is. Apparently, Wiggo doesn't train on them on his road bike most of the year and neither do a lot of the guys that used them last year. The reason is the shifting- its simply so shitty its annoying in training. Also, some of the guys feel that they're only useful for the peak period and its partially mental. I guess some of them also find it easy to adapt to them. A few have ditched them permanently as the shifting is that bad with mechanical I guess.

Really, still on this?

Any road models with this system yet?

I wonder if you're talking about Joe Dombrowski who just signed with SKY :?: Personally, if the shifting is so shitty while training I wouldn't want the same performance on a race day either. I wish the shifting performance would be addressed on those rings. I run Rotor Q rings on my set up and although the ovalized shape is not as extreme, the shifting performance is on point every time.

I highly doubt that! Wiggins has been seen on round chainrings typically in training on Mallorca only a year ago.

Here's an interview with Cancellara from 2011. Interesting that the Anglo press didn't pick up on this...

Ah! Fabian

I will always remember that 1200+W seated attack in the Roonde and sick year of TTing his way off other like he was a train.

Who honnestly think these guys are clean, c'mon.

Could be, could not be. Yah, adding ramps wouldn't be insanely tough, but when you can charge someone $350 for a minimally machined piece of metal why bother with things that would actually make it worth using?

I don't understand this. I run Osymetrics and they shift perfectly every time. The shift is fast and without drama both up and down. You might have to trim the derailleur as you go up or down the cassette (electronic does this for you though right?), and that's it. Have people just not got them set up right or am I just lucky?

They don't read German?
Thanks for the link. I had not read it before. There's the "I'm the last of the unicorns"-quote too. Nice to get in context.

Just like Guerdi said, I believe it is Thomas Dekker.

This article is my reference. (It's written in dutch :sorry: )

http://www.nrc.nl/nieuws/2013/01/23/thomas-dekker-was-klant-bij-dopingarts-spanje/

The real article which was in the newspaper itself listed many arguments why Dekker would be 'Clasicomano Luigi'.
So I was therefore wondering what interview you are referring to Micky?
