I wonder if CSC is using Zipp carbon fibre rims again :)
Whow! That's a pretty damn nice garage door!

Some CSC riders used carbon rims in the Ronde van Vlaanderen.

I`ve read on another forum that Boonen`s bike weighs 8.58 kg, and that his normal bike is 7.6 kg.

I heard my namesake (Tom Boonen) tell that he had a special made time with extra kevlar and he said it only weighs 7 kg.

I want to see a photo of the Mavic guy standing on the roof of the car adjusting a saddle on a spare bike to Chavanel's measurements.... :shock:

Rear suspension on a Madone?

Image

Does their carbon really flex enough for the suspension to make a difference (I've used a Mag softtail but carbon?).

No, the front triangle is not a Madone, but a 5500 or 5900 (5500, OCLV 120 I think)

Aparently it does :lol:

Remember the old Trek STP frames? They don't have any pivots as well. The carbon fibre is enough flexible.
The Gary Fisher Sugar / Trek Fuel use flexible carbon too, instead of pivots. Cannondale Scalpel too.


By the way, Lars Michaelsen (who finished 5th) was riding Zipp 404 wheels!

No, he changed bike after Carrefour d´la Abres. Scott Sunderland stood there with new bikes with Zipp wheels and normal tires on.
