Any predictions who will win the 2006 TdF?

BMC can hardly be linked to the actions of the teams to whom they supply bikes.

Who makes a bicycle purchase based on whether or not a doping rider has been seen on the brand?


What I tried to say, is that it is unfortunate for them (BMC) to be linked to doped racers, specially in consecutive years on the TDF. And yes I guess the TDF does sell bikes, and other accessories, just check the various threads, such as Vino's glasses...

The new Zeus stuff looks fantastic. The carbon variable radius bars feel very light (sub 200g) and the stem has some clever construction features, plus for a carbon stem, it feels light.

Is Mayo wearing the world's longest set of shorts today?

Its interesting to see Iban Mayo riding a 49cm frame, when he's 5'9 (1.76m) but hey, pro's size down on bikes. And also using a 110mm stem.

And the weight is only 6.6 kg, 200 grams below the UCI weight limit.

Small frame yes, but look at his seat height measurement under all of the thumbnails. He must have short legs

Aha, thank you for that


The Zeus stuff is actually not bad. I have a seatpost on my Opal and it came in at 180 grams before I cut it (27.2/350mm). With a little love from a hacksaw, a Ti bolt, and some dremel work on the clamp its now at about 169grams. Not bad for a $100 post.

I know this was a post from a long time ago, but I just had to comment.

Seems that the rider was doing some hard breaking into the dog and got some back tire lift. started to tweak his bars to the right and the wheel took all of the impact vs the dog. I would bet the dog could have been in just the right place for the rider to, for the most part, endo over the top of him.

I was a bit surprise about the 49cm frame too, thats really small... For comparison, Simoni at 5'7 rides a 52cm addict. Just goes to show fit is complicated. Also does anyone else find his bar setup a little funny with the handlebar tilted way back in combination with a -17º stem? I am sure its comfortable for Mayo, just looks a little odd to me.

His bars aren't that tilted back, he's got it so he's got a flat bar/shifter transition, though I see what you mean about it looking a bit odd with that stem.
