Oh wow anyone know what size frame that is? That is both awesome and ridiculous.

Have to say his position looks pretty good here though. Also unlike Andy he appears to be able to ride in the drops!

His BMC was the same- long and low.

Prob from his track background. That kyphotic hump in his upper back doesn't look too pretty and his pelvis isn't too rotated, but shit, guy can ride a bike really fast so it seems to really work.

Blythe vs. Downing's bikes show how good traditional bend bars look.

I never look at power, I never train by power.


PR/marketing suicie for Garmin Vectors


:roll:

*sigh*

Just goes to show that 1) not all pros are that bright, 2) contradicts himself in the same paragraph about team Sky 3) probably doesn't "train by power*" because of 1).

*training by power is a good indication he doesn't get it. Training by power and recording power data are two very different things.
