It's fugly, but it might look more trim on a race day in a few weeks. I know that Optum switched to Diamondback this year, so Tom may still be sorting himself out on the frame. Although if those are the final contact points, a larger frame might help, no?

Yeah, guess not. He looks good on the bike, and he beat his team mates, so we'll see how the rest of the season goes. I like his shifter position.

My wife has been experimenting with a Dutch cargo bike. Check out @bicyclemum on twitter or BICYCLEMUM on FB.

Almost as big as our van.

But my son likes it.

Nothing wrong with those bikes (as long as you are from Holland) over here cycling is a major part of transport and commute.
