Is it what you get if you buy "Genuine Garmin Vector Pedals!" from a bloke that sells cheap Pinarellos on Ebay?

On the subject of suits, looks like Under Armour (supplier of team USA speed skating) is being blamed for slow suits.

Hopefully this puts the idea that Costa is riding SIDI to rest...he wears shoe covers as I said.

that's very interesting.
the bike in the picture (not quoted here) is a Swift from team Drapac, they're testing them I guess

Those cranktip pedals look suspicious to me. It's entirely possible that they increase the mechanical efficiency of the human-bike system, but 20%?? I feel like the effects may be exaggerated a wee bit. Haven't we seen something like this (drop pedals) already?

20% !! Imagine a 20% improvement just like that... back to the 90s :-)

I'm pretty sure Pantani imagined that instant 20%... among others.

Suddenly Froome's meteoric rise makes sense, it was his pedals!!
