I'm not going to argue the case. It's too short.
There is zero room for movement in that big / big combination and the chain is too taught. You can also tell from the small / big combition that the CS cage doesn't sit as it should.

Shimano have a recommendation for non-standard jockey wheels?

Is the correct chain lenght
Perhaps not for most of us home mechanics but.....
It was correct enough for her to win a gold medal at the Olympics
Something we home mechanics will never do :thumbup:

It's the correct length for standard jockey wheels, then someone put oversize on and messed it all up. :D

Dumoulin stil using "normal" Cervelo extentions, while Van Aert and Roglic have some custom(?) Vision branded armrests.
No Tour, so no special upgrades for Dumoulin?

It seems that the Jumbo mechanics also put the chain too short...

I have Ceramic Speed pulley wheels and cage on SRAM AXS, and the SRAM flattop chain is not available any longer than the stock size out of the box.

There is no way to make the chain longer without liberating a link (or two) from another flat top chain.

Be that as it may, I'd never run my chain that short. If there was ever a circumstance where you needed to down shift from there quickly, you'd simulataniously shift off the big ring and big cog, further stretching the cage as chain rides up the teeth to disengage. I don't have sponsorship or a truck full or parts if it goes to shit.

Fizik Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave... I was surprised she left the straps flap in the wind though, not that she needed it but she might have saved a few watts with aero overshoes or at least cutting the extra length of the straps. They curled up a little so from the front, you could see them stick out.

Yeah, I was surprised that she didn't have shoe covers. I'm glad to see velcro making a comeback!
