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.

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?

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.

Where is that picture taken?
I never took drugs to improve my performance at any time. I will be willing to stick my finger into a polygraph test if anyone with big media pull wants to take issue. If you buy a signed poster now it will not be tarnished later. --Graeme Obree

@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.
