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.

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?
