Frame probably wasn't built for him. I assume he's borrowing it.

That's exactly what I was thinking; that bike probably wasn't built for him.

He has convinced some rich, star-struck lackey to lend him a bike.

Someone who knows told me that he had to quickly find a bike before the livestrong charity ride as he was dropped by Trek a few days before. That someone also told me it is a stock 57 corsa team.

He owns a bike shop! Gotta think they could have FedEx'd him a bike a the drop of a hat, no? An nice Oltre maybe? Pinna?

Unless MellowJohnny's dropped him too... ;-)

He very well could have gotten it from Mellow Johnnies. They have a Crumpton displayed in the basement last time I was there.

new rule for critiquing positions of pros and milk bottle legged amateurs.

You must post a shot of your position first okay?

Lance and the other guy have a ways to go yet.


I love this photo. I admire someone like this who is clearly very self-assured and completely without a care in the world what others think of his appearance. First I've heard of mamils. That's funny even to a mamil such as myself.

LOVE that photo also. Love the length of the bib shorts on the guy - past the knees!. And socks with sandals to top off the look. Very stylish.

I always wonder if he rode a bike there. I'd like to see a photo of that also.

Lance obviously likes big frames. As we know he's a big guy with long legs yet riding with not too much seat tube showing. That bike doesn't seem to fit him too well.


:roll:
He's got plenty of seat tube showing. It's a traditional frame. His frames are usually 58s --1cm larger than what most 5'10-11" guys would use, because he needs the extra reach. As much as I dislike him, his fit is great; he isn't built right to get that textbook "Euro pro" look, and I am pretty sure looks are last on his list when it comes to a proper bike fit.

Most people will not know what bike he his riding . As long as it does not say Trek . He still owns some of Trek so wants to keep the damage limitation going . You cannot start picking Armstrongs fit apart because he doped, you will be picking on quite a lot of pro riders if thats your criteria. Doped or not Armstrong is one hell of a bike rider.


He was a good rider no doubt. I raced Srs when he raced Jrs.. great tenacity. He was no Lemond but you can't really pick his fit apart so much. He has a curved back and they did the best they could. Yes his stage race results were skewed because of his benefit from EPO having a natural lower one vs other pros... all that aside he could hold his own in one day races back in the day.

Now if you are picking apart fit... I would love to see what a 20-30 something Sean Kelley would be like if he was properly fit with today's equipment. :lol:

What was wrong with Kelly's fit? It actually looks a lot more like present-day fits than contemporary, which by today's standards look painfully stretched out.

OMG a past pro on the drops with bent arms! Maybe today's pro's should take a look...
