    And I bet he would leave you in the dust with those calves

    Then, you can get a bumper sticker that says: "I was beaten by a chicken, climbing Alpe d'Huez"

    Weight training fails so many of us. Do they have calves transplants. And would it make climbing easier?

    Yes, i believe that calf implants are available but are purely cosmetic so pretty useless in the overall scheme of things.
    Kinda like fake boobs I suppose.

    Ok, are there any good head on shots of guys sprinting which show the frame actually flexing laterally? It would have to be pretty much dead on straight, with the front wheel perfectly straight. I'm thinking newer bikes might be too stiff? Maybe older shots of racers?

    Remember on the Jay Leno show. Lance Armstrong returned from one Tour De France races and appeared before Jay Leno. Another guest wanted to feel Lance's calves.

    Please go ahead and post a picture of yourself in a full out sprint to the line, wearing the kit of the team you ride for, with your undoubtedly massive calves rubbing the down tube and causing it to melt from the friction.

    your analogy with regard to utility is way wide of the mark.

    I thought the whole title and OP was funny.
