Tell that to the track sprinters riding 34s and 36s.

Coming from a weightlifting background, wider often reduces leverage. Go do a wide grip row and move your hands in 1cm and do more sets. Narrower group is almost always the strongest.

On a road bike your elbows are not fixed. They can flare in/out to adjust to shoulder torque/pressure. There really is no general reason to run wide bars. I have abysmal rotator cuffs/shoulder issues from years of weightlifting and ride a 40 at 6 feet 2 just fine.

What to make of Lachlan Morton's 'so dope' cartoon of lance tee-shirt on IG ...

My favorite comment was:
"Sweet, looking forward to the Zabriskie, Vande Velde, Hesjedal, Danielson, Millar etc. ones, too."

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'.

You deduced all that over the TV?

I love this place :lol:

Donno if mentioned, but Bell seems to have changed a bit their aero helmets by placing some big holes on the sides and the top.

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?


I was just talking on fb with a guy who used to work for Hutchinson and he said that despite what test results from the company were saying, many pro riders and teams wouldnt care.

Better pics of Boonen's new frame for the TOC using chameleon paint that changes color based on the viewing angle.

"bell aero helmet"

I posted a few pages ago (ma nessuno m'ha cagato :mrgreen: )

both UHC and Belkin are using this different Bell helmet in California

riding the Giro, the Belkin team wear their usual bell aero helmet.

maybe a patent/homologation problem in the USA

To notice something visually, a TV set is a pretty good aid. Try it. :)

Looks like Greg Van Avermaet needs some Hanseenos
But Adam wont have time to make them as he will need more recovery time from riding ancient 22mm tubies with bars that are too narrow for him and make him ride like a squirrel which in turn will make him crash or cause crashes that will get him banned from the peloton. Then and only then will he have time to make GVA's shoes.
