Italians are bad at avoiding the detection of their doping.

Cav is out of the British Nats road race due to Bronchitis picked up at Tour de Suisse. I hope he recovers in time for the tour, I like his sprints a lot.

The Yonex production frame released this year weighs in at 650 g, and I heard Trek destroyed 100 of them in pursuit of that exact marketing copy.

Edit: Sorry, maybe Yonex use the same tech.. I always respond badly to apparent bs

Is there an aftermarket direct mount brake option, that's light weight to boot?

Or they didnt have the "cover" for that day.
Either way pointing at one Country is not that nice.

Look at the scale on the x axis of the right hand bar graph - BS detectors light up.

I guess this is why... and that is including all the HW. I wonder if the Trek figures quoted reflect the same :thumbup:

Holy non-linearity bat man! :shock:

Although in fairness, the only error is the presence of the zero, or the lack of a 'stroke' on the axis between 0 and 500g to indicate the scale is compressed. Between 500 to 900g the scale is linear.

2nd problem: graph on left presents super six evo black whole bike weight data. Frame weight graph on right, however, quotes super six evo high mod frame weight rather than the black's ballistec weight of 655g (ref: http://roadcyclinguk.com/gear/cannondal ... -3920.html)
