Low Rep Count
I know we are a mtb forum, but curious if anyone is watching this? Lots of good crashes yesterday and the will be hitting the cobble stones today so there should be some more!
so a pre-1937 style race! that would be fun to watch.ernesto_from_Wisconsin said:There should be a stage of just single speed - either a climbing stage all on SS, or a dirt stage. That would show who's got the strength - and whiners will complain.
Ask and you shall receive. I put this thread up a couple days ago:stumonky said:Man, I am just hearing about this ongoing motor issue in the Tour. If someone has a video and/or article that shows pics of these contraptions - I'd be curious to see them.
from the other threadThe 'bike doping' claims may sound ridiculous, but they are gathering pace and earlier this week Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara - nicknamed Spartacus - was forced to deny rumours that he won Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders this year while riding an electric bike.
Sparty, were you riding geared because you're training (and cheating) for the Tour de France?!?Sparticus said:I'll reassemble both my SS machines and be able to look myself in the mirror with respect once again. (I've been a SSer masquerading as a gearie for the past 5 or 6 months.)
Assumingly with as much interest as is in ss'ing it would be interesting to have some race in tribute to the orginal days. I love the tour but the machines they are riding are pretty incredible. Would give much more props to the mtn stages to the ones that battle it on one gear.scyule said:The good old days, with single speeds, wine, riders who smoke and sawing through a competitors chainstay while he's asleep..... simpler times
Just now saw this... I am innocent... the rumors are nothing more than that -- rumors... you can't prove anything... lies, I tell you, lies!alexrex20 said:from the other thread
