(I believe someone emailed them about price and availability last year and was quoted £3000 / 18mths lead time :P )


Ah yes, I see you're right. Same one he used at Olympics. Cheers. It's a pretty snazzy looking helmet :D

I'm wondering who makes the chainring he used in today's TT World Championships.

Already in pro thread. FSA as SRAM (his sponsor) doesn't make size he needs.

I don't believe FSA makes a 58t chainring. On their website and searching the web, I think I only saw a 55 or a 56.

Moviestar off Pinarellos, longest partnership in cycling as far as I can remember.

Orbea maybe?

^ That would make sense. I would like to see Orbea with Movistar colours on Campag group & wheels, assuming they stick with Campag.

I understand covering the off sponsor chainring, but could they not find a can of BBQ black grill paint to at least make it look legit? Come on, we all know that looking good is half the battle.

Yeah, a fair bit of setback that he couldn't stay set back on, he was constantly shifting his position .... looked like Contador. He really didn't look comfortable, I wonder why? I've never seen him shift around like that before?

Prolly cause it was a really long time trial. I didn't see him shifting around so much in the first half :noidea:

I don't know, maybe I need to rewatch it, but i'm pretty sure he was shifting throughout the entire race. And it was significant too, he was sliding himself a couple of inches back on his saddle.

He should have put grip tape on his saddle like Tony M did. :smartass:
