yeah i love when amateur and arm-chair club riders argue that SRAM "is the best gruppo because it enables you to shift in the sprint" and then when you point out that sure Hushovd rides SRAM but Cav, Farrar, Freire all ride Shimano they get all "um uhhh".

does any pro team still ride Campy?

that poor liquigas bastard who's wearing his national champion jersey - white, bit of maroon and dark green - with the liquigas acid green shorts is the most un-PRO lookin dude.

last year lots of campy riders were only ('only') using record as super record + featherweight frame + crabon wheels should put be well under the weight limit!

I think they have been edging towards this, the customisable carbon frame. Next stop fancy carved lugs

Not that it really helps me be I couldn't find it on their site.

sorry, my teammate bought the dura-ace standard, not the FSA Standard. Linked above is the FSA dual standard/compact. If you switch rings, you have to reposition and readjust the FD.

Fuji continue a tradition of Fugly paintjobs on Pro bikes. Can't wait to see how bad the Geox strip is.

I did start doing a poll around TdF time but then my laptop died 90% of the way there and I didn't feel like starting over.

Geox Fuji, Cannodale Liquigas and, Cavendish's blood spattered scott at the bottom, IMO.

That fuji looks quite nice in the non- team colourways. The tapered head tube and thin seat stays make it look very light.

wonder how many pairs he has? you'd nearly cry if you scuffed the gold off the toe!

went and watched victorian CX championship on sunday; local lad turned rapha-condor PRO 'munners' won the day - on borrowed moots psychlo-x with white hoods and pink bar tape, it was magnificent.
