    nairo is watching his power meter. He knows he can't sustain more than 500w. Froome is pushing 600w & doesn't want anyone else to know. The rest of the guys are suffering from "the other guy is...

    As much as I admire LeMond for his accomplishments I think his assertion that the teams should collectively attack Froome, is off. If Froome cracks, I see now way that will happen to any devastating...

    The best climbing bikes are fun to climb with. What makes them fun?
    1. A slightly small geometry(in your range)

    The new "bike looks" to have a lower bar. That would cause more weight on the hands.
    Foot pain could be a lot of things. I agree with the above. Cycling insoles, also, aren't very thick to...

    From what little I actually know it seemd as if Wiggo wasn't a natural leader & Froome was a better hope for the future of the team.

    Its probably one of those things mfgr's see as "What a new bike should look like". I think the disc is a good thing for someone who will never touch a derailleur. But, a serious road racing bike? ...

    I think mechanics enjoy the simpler, more straight forward days. Whether it be cars,planes, machinery or bicycles. Its sort of like working on a carburetor as opposed to an EFI system. We like to...

    when out of the saddle, you are often digging for something a little extra. Maybe that's an incline. Maybe you're tiring. 2%, if that's the magic number for you, maybe gets you up to that wheel...
