New Addict SL looks good to me. Going to have to tape a brick to that thing with Sram Red to meet uci 15lb.

How Talansky fares intrigues me. His cockiness sure is annoying.

Do you think Danielson was taking blood in '11 when he was 8th? Serious question. It is interesting to read what Steve Tilford writes about him. http://stevetilford.com/2012/09/06/vaughters-outs-danielson/
Have always wondered the same of Vande Velde's decline from 2008 onwards although I guess he's just getting older...

The Pinarello areo frame is what I'm interested in seeing. I really like the Bolide, and if the road frame has UKSI engineering behind it like that I think it will look awesome. Not that it would be anything close to affordable.

Alright this was already posted. You can ignore. Thanks


I think I saw a poster on CN say that there must have been a ramp in front of the car because if you look at the video again, he never "bunny hops" the back wheel to get it up over the bumper/hood :noidea:


Tip of the ramp can be seen from inside the car.

Yes, does appear to be something there. :exactly:

I'm not seeing what you guys are seeing I guess. Although it does look a little weird how smoothly he hops onto the hood, I can't see any ramp.

It'll have to be under 900 grams frameset to compete with the RCA. And it doesn't even have any aero tubing. That's what makes the RCA remarkable

See above. And won a stage at the Giro this year already.

Except for where he was in the break on Stage 20 of the Giro last year, dropped back and then paced Hesjedal's group up the first half of the Stelvio. Right?


Could go on. It's not a bad squad at all. I think you're being harsh.

What do you mean what is aero about the RCA? The tubing is Kamm profile. It's more aero than a Scott Foil yet hundreds of grams lighter. It was designed specifically with CASE including CFD and wind tunnel testing.

I didn't say it was bad, I just said it wasn't in the top 5 strongest squads and for sure not a powerhouse.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.
