    ...it's funny to see duct tape on a TT Bike:

    Better yet why is is not duct taped flat and more under the saddle in a better position I would think for aerodynamics.

    Plus those little ripples in the tape make a turbulent layer that helps aero, like dimples on a golf ball.

    Duct tape is like The Force - there's light side, and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.
