    where are the "funny bikes?"

    Why don't we see the funny bikes for time trialing any more? Remember the 700c rear with 650 front wheels? Are they just not in vogue or are they not aero enough anymore?

    I understand they were outlawed in 2000 by the UCI for Pro Events. I still use mine in TT's here in the states. But i'm not a Pro

    I have no idea why nobody rides them anymore. I set a nat. record on the track with one just last year. They are aero and fast...
