In that last pic he has a P2M Type S on. In another he had the classic with the green logo.

That's what happens to people when they come off the roids.

What? You were talking about the jersey? Oh, sorry. Carry on.

Sure, 'Pro Ltd' version w/ latex tubes and a non-tread strip in the middle....I'd rock those! :mrgreen:

FrictionFacts.com confirmed experimentally that the theory is correct and it works.

Theory is straightforward: chain bends less, pulley spins slower. Obvious it should work.

No Bouhanni at TdF. Sad, I was hoping he would be selected.

In other news, could be some fireworks between Lotto and OPQS at the tour.

seriously? that seems like a very one sided report - cav seems a bit immature, but it seems out of character for him to call out someone's personal life...

Wonder how well that works with the different pull ratios? Who am I kidding, most PROs couldn't care less...

it works just fine, definitely not the same setup but i ran 7900 brakes with an older 10s ergo setup... maybe it wasn't ideal, but my bike still stopped just fine. does campy even offer a direct mount brake?

Well isn't it because the new Aeroad use Direct Mount brake, and Campagnolo doesn't have one?
I'd love to know how many sizes of that integrated cockpit Canyon going to produce. Could be a nightmare to fit right without variety of reaches.
