    I'd love to be in a break with this guy....

    ....because I'd actually be able to get some recovery on his wheel.



    Thats one tall bike racer.

    One of my leadout guys, in the early 90s, was about 6'6", rode a 66 cdale with a 400mm mtb post at max height. I rode a 50 cdale back then, so the opposite end of the size spectrum.

    I found that I needed a guy between me and the leadout guy because, frankly, drafting knees doesn't do much for me.

    btw he's the one I went to Belgium with, and he was very strong for a year or two.

    That looks like a good ad for the strength of Edge rims.

    You should see his saddle to bar drop. He was in a cyclocross race in Oregon one time and pulled up next to me (my teammate was offering beer handups... fun times). His saddle was nearly at my chest.

    I've been in a break with that guy (not a break of 2, and it was a completely flat race). I was in serious pain even with the enormous draft. Those freakishly long legs can put out a lot of power.

    +1. He did a crit down here in SoCal. The course was pretty flat, but I remember he was really strong. I think he got last out of the break though.

    If I tried riding this bike, I'd be saying "Yao!"

    I is weird how bike wheels just don't look like they're full size under me from race photos. I need some 750c wheels.
