    It was interesting seeing a team other than Discovery dominating the last climbs of the stage. Chicken and Boogie sure checked everything at it. The seppos are now in raptures about Floyd and his bung hip

    They're very confused. They can only 'root' for one person at a time, so now Landis is the good cop (extra bonus for having something wrong with him, I mean appart from being a Seppo and a Menninite) and Leipheimer is a bad cop.

    No idea why. Maybe because his surname is a little bit too German and Gerolsteiner is harder to pronounce than 'Phonak'?

    Vette, you know the next step is Record and Titanium, right? It happens to the best of us, trust me.

    Titanium seems to be the long term platform of choice for a lot of riders. I have a mate with titanium roadie and MTB (Litespeed - used to own a bike shop) and he just upgrades the components every few years. I'll need some new money making venture to make that upgrade myself. My problem is I am always looking for a bargain and that'd be hard to find at the custom end of the market.

    Floyd must feel really buggered after each stage with so many seppos rooting (for) him

    Can some one tell me how Leipheimer can be a bum yesterday on a relatively easy day and make like he's towing the QEII up some of those hills where today on the much harder day he's full of beans and racing for the win?

    They do seem to be on the Flandis wagon a lot more than on Leipheimer. I was wondering of it is because Levi has been riding for Euro teams for a longer time & was not a Postie/Disco boy a couple of seasons ago?

    I say a coment by Dave Zabreski about Flandis the other day which I liked tho... "not too many other guys in the peleton were willing to tell Lance to grow screw himself".
    Excepting Robbie McEwan of course a few years back..

    I have a modicum more respect for guys like Landis and (not really) Hamilton for at least having the balls to know their talent and give themselves the best opportunity to excel.

    Guys like Hincapie have been Lances butt-boy for so long, in his absence they really don't know what to do with themselves. It's like they need someone to aspire to rather than step up and be that person themselves.

    How else can you explain how lame-duck Discovery appears to be at the moment. It's not like they're lacking in talent.

    ps: Landis is a ginger Go Floyd!

    nooo, they are on the seppo that hs most chance of a win band wagon! throw in some phyisical lance type ailment and your all set for a strong yank favourite. 1st it was George, then when it wa shoen he didnt have the power to pull the skin off a rice pudding it was onto the lesser knowns....

    I cant stand Landis, never have been able to. maybee its the phonak thing cause i could never really find myself liking tyler hamilton either.

    I think Caldel managed to upset lance by going or the stage win last year ahead of lance, like how dare he!

    id imagine that hes amazingly sporting a higher red cell count than the day before.... as the song fro a few years ago says it " drugs, and money but there aint nothing your gonna do about it "

    For fear of getting kicked off the site, I'm going to leave this one alone...sufficed to say I was climbing my own peaks last night.

    I liked this from todays main report on cyclingnews.

    Moments after overnight leader Cyril Dessel crossed the line with a desperate lunge, 4'45 behind the first trio, the 30 year-old Phonak leader from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, swung his head around to the leaderboard, and a pat on the back from team doctor Denise Demir said it all.
    It's easy to get cynical watching this stuff.

    Landis is a Menonite correct? which is basicly Ahmish light. how does one get away with using power meters, carbon fiber, hear rate montiors etc like that? i would guess that hes obviously not practicing any more?

    Mennonite's will use modern technology, but will only drive black cars with blacked out chrome. Chrome is too prideful apparently.

    If Floyd was actively mennonite, he would have to ride a black bike with no shiny bling, black shorts, black helmet etc. Sponsors would hate him

    A silver cleat bolt and nut looks good enough. Bicycle Recycle might have one: 9555 8692. Usually $75 for 2nd hand Dura-Ace, and maybe around $50 for Ultegra
    Thanks Aussie, I spoke with the Father in Law who is an engineer and he thinks a stainless hexhead/star screw with a stainless nut will be fine and will look OK. He just happens to have a few 5mm of both in his work shop and is bringing them over tonight. I think I might also drive past your mate in South Road and just see what they've got, just for the hell of it.

    half of them was from the tour of saudi Arabia (or something like that, it was awhile ago) where it was flatter than a pan-cake and the only other sprinter was Zabel.


    Why won't the ****ing university website work so I get some marks?
