Is it the same rider that had the 150 earlier this season?

At that point can't Specialized make him a custom mold? I remember seeing that Boonen's Roubaix was a 60cm TT with a 170mm HT (size 60 top tube and 56 headtube), I'm sure he could use a similar molded bike or the same mold since it already exists.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.

Degenkolb uses a 150, I believe. If nothing else, it's entertaining fodder for discussion.

I see Cav is now using Specialized shoes. No longer on a signature Nike Cav model http://photos.grahamwatson.com/2013RaceUpdates/Stage-1-St-Maurice-Renens/29056958_b5j6XM#!i=2475239396&k=QkqchBB&lb=1&s=A

That new stem doesn't really look longer than the old one, or at least not 35mm longer. Seems more likely he just got a new one made since the old one had been ridden for several seasons and was a question of time when it would fail.

Sure, let me just set my time machine for 2010 so I can catch him before his last post. Hope I also left enough pages between posts so as not to upset the quote polizei.

Hey, fellas, I wanted to give a quick shout-out to my home boy Ji Cheng, who is in today's Cyclingnews story.

Cheng is a hard working kid and have paid his dues as a domestique for several years at SKil/Argos... Most comabitive rider for Stage 19 of the 2012 Vuelta. Good cook too (can testify to that). Looking forward to a great Giro from him.

From cyclingnews ( http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/ji-chen ... ro-ditalia ):

"On the bike, Ji has made a name for himself by pulling the bunch for hours. A worthy domestique, he has been identified as "the breakaway killer" since he brought the bunch across to escapees on many occasions during the 2012 Vuelta at the service of John Degenkolb, who won five stages and will be once again his captain for the Giro."

Hansens shoes are tremendous. Wonder who the craftsmen behind them are.
