Sure it's race worthy as is, but when everyone else brings all their guns to the fight for the win, why doesn't he...

In all fairness, the total length of the 5 videos is around 43 minutes. I'm pretty sure that he took longer than 43 minutes to build the bike, and that certain parts were edited out. For instance, there is a break in the video after he cuts the front brake housing, so perhaps he did some preparation on it that just wasn't shown on video.

Because pro mechanics cost money, and with the amount of stuff to be done, then good enough, if that, is all they have time for, and maybe only the stars' bikes are really even good enough. True, they could hire more mechanics, but that would cost more money, eating into the profits of the team. Would a team more than make up in winnings, sponsor value, etc. what it would cost to hire another mechanic or two to do a higher quality job - I don't know.DMF wrote:Sure it's race worthy as is, but when everyone else brings all their guns to the fight for the win, why doesn't he...
But if that's the case, surely someone har a good reason for it.
EDIT/ Sure there might be a reason, such as insufficient time, but then atleast we agree, for whatever reason, it's still sloppy.
