I don't see that happening.

Generic carbon frames from Scattante and Motobecane are somewhat popular but still account for a very small % of bikes on the road. They haven't done anything to...

OP's question was very specific. Some people use steel frames for rain bikes, and that's what he doesn't understand.

Seems doubtful that the ASO would allow a team to bring a female pro just to create a spectacle in the back of the peleton and distract from the actual race.

Why be so whiny and overly emotional?

"I really want", "I hope", "I hate", "I love", "I just needed".
