Lycra and Spandex. Surely the biggest contribution to sports, ever.

That was entertaining. Must agree that the "pit crew" was the highlight.

Full of inside jokes, like the triple crank in the opening scene. Bike Snob does some good 'splaining.

I think he took out most of us with that one!
Steel frame from 1988 - use it as a paper weight!
I love it!

Epic - like the pit crew!

I need a new carbon frame! I'm looking at the Sette on sale at PricePoint or maybe the Time frame on BonkTown.com

That's cool, just throw me that Tange Steel, Shogun when you're through with it and someone else can have that AL frame.

Steel is great! I have 3 Reynolds steel bikes from the 70's and 80's, one 2004, and a couple non Reynolds steel 2009. The 2009 steel cross bike is almost as light as my modernized 1990 carbon frame.

I'm just curious about how a 17 lb 60cm modern carbon would ride.
