Nope. Still not ok to ride them. :wink: Let's see what comes-out of the quiver on more 'challenging' terrain than Hamme-Zogge! :D

Mark Cavendish's new book is a joy to read. Well written, fun and informative. Answers a lot of question since HTC's demise up until the end of Tour de France 2013. He has really matured after he's got a kid. Recommended.

I think it looks good as well. btompkins0112 and PSM are just being salty. #wwjealousy.

I prefer 'cheeky' but 'salty' works well too! The bike looks fantastic, no doubt.....just think it would be ace if the kit matched. If your going to do it, do it right. :noidea:

If somebody posted an intro thread with a bunch of mismatched kit hanging on a gorgeous frame, they would get flamed.....just being consistent :wink:

Clearly you do not understand exactly how expensive it is to field a UCI team and how matchy-matchy components is not high on the agenda for many.

oh that bike wasn't even a UCI team bike or anything. just some picture off the falco website. But yea w-w dudes are nitpicking like dis gurl right here, her elbows too pointy.

that bike has a lot of stuff going for it and it's way better than most matchy matchy 'blacked out' stuff on here.

and to stay on topic.

here's a picture of pantani climbing in drops.

What? Was that Ti Falco a Team bike I thought they were all on the carbon frame?

Loving the Ti and yes that is better than looking at it with mad fibers. Metal frames are coming back mark my words.

No that wasn't a team bike.....KWalker was just taking an opportunity to read too deep into a sarcastic/smarta** post and overreact. Par for the course.

@teleguy

send a PM to user Makoy, who posts often in the "On the Road Today..." thread.
That 7-11 team is from the Philippines and a similar it has frequented his shots.

I see Armstrong still seems to think he is in control. Egotistical twunt.

He clearly thinks he's being clever using the media to posture for a deal - attend a T&R commission in exchange for a reduction in his sentence.

I hope the UCI puts him in his place. They will get plenty of information from the hundreds of athletes and team members who will come forward of their free will, without needing to allow the nasty little Texan to wriggle free in any way whatsoever.

A deal now would be to embolden the biggest bully the sport has known in the last 20 years. To refuse one would sentence him to a lifetime regret. So refuse one - unless this is now a vendetta against HV.

I'm not a supporter of Armstrong Airwise but I do not agree with you...whether he was a bully or not, I do not believe he was given equal treatment by USADA with regard to the penalties given to his ex-fellow members...

...but this is the same record playing over again & again...
