There is a little band that Simoni wears on his arm, and I have always wondered what it is. Does anyone know what it is?

I have also noticed several other cyclists wearing them.

It's a weird band thing which contains a metallic powder, it apparently increases strength, responsiveness, balance etc.! Can't remember too many details, there was a small article about it in Pro Cycling magazine.

After the Giro he might do well to place it around his head.

that´s the kinesio-taping i mentioned :wink:

Kinesio Taping® is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. Kinesio Taping® exhibits its efficacy through the activation of the neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology. Hence the name "Kinesio" is used.

Didn't realize the downtube decal is not just the plain ol "Cannondale" either but rather "Legalize My Cannondale". I still liked his custom painted spiderman bike much better.

Hi all,

I am new to this forum, but the wristband is a Benix body energy band. It is supposed to energize through reflex stimulation. Benix.com has the products. Love the forum.

I smell something great for Penn and Teller to investigate for their Showtime serial known as BS. They pretty well shot down the "magnetic vortexes" in Colorado. Next would be crystal power.

Sorry if my lack of faith bothers you. My power comes from within.
