Not the 810, well at least not mine.

They did? News to me, and I stock them! The original mount for the 205/305/705 was delicate but the 200/500/800 quarter turn mount is perfectly secure.

The plastic tabs have broken off the back of approximately five Edge 500's owned by either me or those I know. Failure rate is close to 100%.

For those interested we have a 50 page WorldTour bike feature in the new edition of RIDE, as well as our usual six bikes reviewed. We measured, weighted and photographed a bike from every team at the TDU. Most teams we also interviewed a mechanic or designer...

This is the first time we have attempted something on this scale and I am interested to know what everyone's thoughts are.

I bought it last night. Haven't read all of it. Definitely cool to compare the setups of people the same height as me. What struck me as most odd were differences in seat height between Velits at like 788mm and the AG2R rider at like 820mm.

great job toby! it was a good read.

interesting that lloyd's setup has changed since this setup and also that in RIDE his drop is listed at 37mm (?) that surely couldn't be right.

How well does the rear brake perform when it's located here in the rain?

Nathan... those were the numbers for Matty's drop as we measured them. He is very small!

Here is his bike as profiled by Bike Radar; that drop looks like a lot more than 3.7 cm:

They listed it as 10.5 cm.

That's not the set-up we shot... As provided to us it had a set-back post. The mechanic was messing around with it at the time.

Still I think our measurement is off now that I consider it!

when you measured seat height did you measure along the seat tube or to what point did you measure
