    2014 Tour de France: 101 Years of Bike History and Technology

    Hey all! I am so excited to join the forum! I don't know if you guys are keeping up with the Tour de France this year, but I thought fellow bike technology geeks might enjoy this infographic that documents the evolution of bike technology over the race's 101 year history. Pretty fascinating for bike techies!

    Pretty disappointing - way too dumbed down for a bike forum.
    "I just googled triple crank set and i see what your saying. this bike has 9 of those "cranksets".
    "They are showing [the TDF of Versus] at 5 different times in the day. It doesn't say which one is the live one."

    That was like how Captain Kangaroo would explain it anyway.

    Greg Lemond's custom paint job is not fascinating technology.

    Wow, guys, don't hold anything back, ha ha. I guess the infographic is pretty basic. You guys must know tons of stuff about bike technology, but then again I am kind of an amateur and beginner cyclist. Sorry if this is too "dumbed down" for this forum, I didn't know!!

    Why is the OP's name almost the same as the website? You trying to sell dish network to cycling fans? Thus the friendly twelve year old patter?
