Pro Bikes.

March 21, 2011

A pal alerted me to this great ( but way too short ) article on pros and their bikes and the fact that things are not always as they seem…

These days it’s possible to have a better bike than the pros. It’ll cost you but an amateur is free to chose what ever they want, from an artisan frame right down to marginal gains like titanium bolts and ceramic bearings. The UCI rules impose a minimum weight of 6.8kg, something that can be beaten quite easily these days, especially with smaller sized frames. It’s got to the point where some bike companies make a virtue of having to add back weight as a way of broadcasting just how light their bikes are…

Reading the comments it says: Boonen raced the ’06 TdF on a steel Pegoretti (and won the green jersey, too) with Specialized stickers. Now I don’t know about the accuracy of that statement but It would be interesting to see a modern pro racing a steel frame… I wonder what they’d make of it.

Read the rest at the inner ring.

Who needs seatstays when you have chain stays like these? Seriously, I have never seen a hencher set of legs.

The Pegoretti ‘Big Leg Emma’. Tonk!

October 12, 2009

So I went to the UK Cycle Show at Earls Court last week with Hardy and I took my camera for a wrestle and to potentially snap some cycles.
