British Cycling use their own helmet designs for track and road, available to buy (ahem) through UK Sport.

(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.

^ 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.

Looks like a fair bit of saddle setback for Cancellara?


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.

Some days you feel good, others you don't.

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