I have always wished a PRO tread for bikes and equipment only - that is why I back in the days joined WW and still today regurly check WW. If mods find to 2021 PRO treads to much - please delete.

I will start out whereabouts Micky left in the PRO 2021 tread.

Any others than INEOS on rim brakes in 2021?

Don't shoot the messenger; Ewan on rim brakes.
By the way they park the bikes, you can understand who earns more.

Separating it from the “pro race” topic would be good...

Just as long as it remains a tread, not a thread.

nothing on Qhubeka - Assos yet, or is there? Apparently they have retained bmc as their bike sponsor, but apart from the helmet I did not see anything from them yet

I think we can also be reasonably certain that they'll be using Assos clothing this season.

Jumbo/Sunweb/Lotto are already in Costa Blanca.

Didnt hear about Qhubeka planning any training camp or presenting their bikes.

Notice how he has the wires, The bottom going to the top anchor and the top to the bottom? Also blacked out the Specialized and the S, not sure why he'd does this as I don't think Lotto Soudal have a shoe sponsor? Other guys in the Picture are wearing both Sidi and Northwave.

No, please change it to "thread".

Tread is what's on the outside of a tyre.

Undoubtedly it's because Lotto-Soudal's bike sponsor is Ridley and Specialized isn't just a shoe brand like Sidi and Northwave.

And still on the Campagnolo H11 11speed group.
I've been told he prefers a 11-27 cassette which is not available in 12speed.

BTW finally a thread only about pro-equipment!!!!

Rigo hacking his very clean sidi shots after fracturing his toes getting out of bed.

I'm more concerned with how his is using the knife.

One slip and it goes into his thighs or into his hands.

Tim Wellens was on S Works shoes in 2020 and I think Gaerne in 2019.
Now this picture was posted with what looks like some chromed......Gaerne?
