California: are UHC and Belkin wearing those different Bell aero helmets, because the ones they wear in Europe are not USA omologated?

A couple of days late but a nasty perspective of the Garmin Sharp TTT crash.

Lampre Merida not running the rotor power meter any more. Instead opting for a P2M on a rotor chassis.

Curious...Adam Hansen still riding 22mm tyres...are the sheep on here going to follow him back from 25mm tyres like they did with narrow handlebars?

Re: Hansen on 22s

Don't forget he's also one of the few still on narrow wheels (Boras are 20-21mm wide) and wheel/tire interface means a lot to aero. A wider tire on that rim would just slow it down even more...

Ultyguy is right- the wheel/tire interface is more important than actual tire width. The lightbulb effect is worse than you'd think. I doubt he chooses his tire width anyways.

Also, most riders are only running 25s on the rear where this matters less due to air turbulence. Wider does not mean more aero nor does it necessarily even mean less crr, but its definitely a bit more comfortable.

As for the narrow bar comment don't knock it until you try it. A lot of pros are still on narrow bars and everyone I know that has sized down has loved it. Some cycling myths need to die a fast death and wide bars providing any sort of advantage is one of them. I'm excited to try 38s.

That is a 22 on the front, which will be fine. The depth of the Campagnolo rim bed may also allow a 22 on the rear without the risk of pinch-flats. I still think that the 22 handles better up front.

As for his Hansen's narrow handlebars - it was clear on a hilltop finish in Turkey(?) that his bike was quite nervy compared to the others'.

i was just about to add this to the thread. He looked huge on that bike climbing out of saddle on hoods. Pros can do whatever Pros want, but that's all im saying. It looked* like he was riding narrow bars lol.

Sastre used to vary his bar width depending on stage profile.

If you're in the wind most of the time, I can def understand the narrow bars. From a fitting perspective as well, you can get a lower front end with narrower bars as it actually raises your chest a bit. However, I would find it hard to generate much leverage through the bar if it was narrower than my shoulders (still have no ligaments in my right shoulder after seperating it years ago).
