    Info on Olympic bikes?

    Does anyone know of a site that gives a rundown of the bikes that were being used? I'm curious what the men were riding.

    Thanks,
    Mike
    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!

    Sorry, but thinking more about the MTB than BMX. Thank you though. Definitely worth checking out.

    Ran across this the other day. Not a full run down but it does give you the model of anyone running SRAM.

    Here is another one listing athletes and teams running fox.

    I figured that might have been what you were after but you weren't specific; so I gave you the info from the events I was paying attention to .

    ^^What really sucked was how NBC "lost" covering the semi-finals.

    I managed to catch most of the races of the quarterfinals - - at somewhere between 2am and 4am one morning; but I never could find the semis. And, ya, they only had one-moto finals that lasted, like you said, about 5 minutes of prime time total.

    Sure was fun to see two mtn bikers get the podium on the women's side.

    Well for Men MTB:
    Sauser is riding the new 09 Epic (as usual).
    A.Craig is riding Giant Anthem X.
    The top cannondale rider (dont know his name) is riding a special Olympic Edition Scalpel.

    There is this rider, I forgot from which country is riding the new Epic but does not use Spesh proprietary fork.
    If I'm not mistaken, Kileen is also riding the new Epic.

    Im quite sure there are more riders riding new 09 bikes but its hard to notice because the camera is mostly focus on Absalon, it is so boring! 1-3 lap of Absalon riding coverage. ZzZzzzz

    I figured as a mod in the MOUNTAIN BIKE forum, it would occur to you that mountain bikes were what he was referring too.

    I wonder if any of the frames were stock, or were all custom built, custom-butted, custom angles, etc, or if any of them really bear a resemblance to what you'd find on the LBS' floor. Or are they like NASCAR "stock" cars, which bear no resemblance to anything you'd be buying?
