when you measured seat height did you measure along the seat tube or to what point did you measure


We measured centre BB to the top of the saddle (centre of clamp), along the seat tube.... Also note we measured all bikes as supplied to us by the head mechanic.

This is seriously important Toby. I can't belive you were so negligent.

How well does the rear brake perform when it's located here in the rain?
Qualified guess: Rim will dry up slower than on a bike with seat stay mounted brake. Could turn interesting if you're a bit late coming off your brakes into a hairpin.

It also has the benefit of accumulating more grit on the brake pads which acts like grinding paste. Thus brake pad and rim life shortens and one can sell more brake pads and rear wheels.

And, oh, /sarcasm.

Some team riding Shimano di2 11spd are using non-branded brake-levers again.
Something new again or some 'older' prototypes?

That's not the set-up we shot... As provided to us it had a set-back post. The mechanic was messing around with it at the time.

Still I think our measurement is off now that I consider it!


While we are on a roll picking on you guys :-) , you also listed Peter Velits as 187 cm tall. Other sources have him at 181-182 cm.

Seriously though, good work; you now have a new subscriber.

I suppose the new previewer is a success because now I want to go buy the magazine because reading it on the previewer (on my MacBook Air) is impractical. PDF is much easier. (added: I see # of page zooms is limited, so that makes it totally clear).

I saw it for sale at a shop yesterday and now regret I didn't buy it.

@stella-azzurra and pastronef -

It looks like Southern California, more specifically the Calabasas/Agoura area - a very typical road out there.

DZ lives in Calabasas.
