Out of curiosity, why this?
They are still some of the absolute stiffest wheels with a unique behaviour in acceleration. Aero was ahead of its time by not respecting Etrto regulations making a better tire-rim profile.

Why is this a Freak? The guy did 25mph which isn't too shabby. The bike is old but hardly freaky. At least he's out there riding and not that slow.

I should have said "anything with exploding wheels is a freak."

Just a shame that UCI ARTICLE 1.3.020 states

“For road competitions other than time trials and for cyclo-cross competitions, the frame of the bicycle shall be of a traditional pattern, i.e. built around a main triangle"

Otherwise everyone on the Tour would be riding one of these beauties :wink:

Plus drillium looks weird on a dark colored derailleur. It only really looks good on an old Campagnolo Record derailleur (the all silver one).
