    +1.What's with the use of the word "doping" in this context? The linked article calls it "technological fraud." Perhaps there is a term found in the UCI (or other) regulations.

    +1 (except for the MTB part.) Also, my understanding is that manufacturers have eliminated most triple cranks, not because they are obsolete, but for the purpose of cost savings and parts...

    True, although very little added weight and, depending on the rider's need, may be enough benefit. My Roubaix has a triple crank; although it is my "B" bike, I do like the smoother transitions, on...

    Unless you include touring bikes in your definition of "road bike," I believe the answer is virtually, "No."

    Of course, you can convert most bikes to a triple crankset, but the cost is...

    So far, I'm waiving Zwift. Adding expensive, techie stuff to already-fake cycling strikes me as sad. (Say I, a victim of CA unbrutal winters.)

    No; what he's saying is that if you gather anything, you'll simply add more weight, for expensive wheels or rims to bear.

    It's my understanding that no one moves to Greeley, CO. Perhaps that's just their HQ and you would be assigned to someplace less, er, fragrant.

    +1. My Roubaix has suffered a few off-road indignities. Other than a couple of slow-motion laydowns, only mishaps have been the large chainring striking the ground. Makes sense - 52t, lower BB; still...
  10. World Tour Roadies Who Will/May Retire in 2016

    It's the start of the season, but looking beyond, I wonder who, among the elite are racing their last.

    Fabian Cancellara?
    Alberto Contador?
    Ted King?
    Bradley Wiggins?
    Ryder Hesjedal?
    Tom...

    On rainy days, you'll save the time you would've spent stopping at red lights and stop signs.

    Well, the thread title does contain the word "controversy," so standard forum etiquette shouldn't apply.

    To be fair, there have been no cycling-related HC scandals, to date.

    While not a topic, I do find controversial the dismissive: "If you're not racing, it doesn't matter." However, if its acronym (IYNRIDM) catches on, I'll be OK, with it.

    Wow - Team Sky is loaded for bear at TDU!

    Looking forward to seeing what Team Dimension Data can accomplish, this season; I really like the internationalization they add to the sport.
  16. Roadie with MTB Newb Question re. Giant Composite Technology Frames

    Hi. Looking at used 29er hardtails, including a Giant xtc. Website says frame is "Giant Composite Technology." Obviously, that's not their ALUXX aluminum, but is it carbon fiber? Something else? Any...

    That's my guess, also. Most/all the high-end RBs are excellent. The fact that the manufacturers have to sponsor (i.e. donate lots of bikes to) the teams suggests that the differences are...

    Yeah, the conditions here have been brutal, as well. Temps dipping into the low 40s, TWO rain showers in the past 15 days. Maybe I'll buy some rollers.

    The Bad Boy is a cool bike; I was lusting after one at REI, this past spring. It had road-like geometry, but with flat bars and hybrid gearing. You could likely dial in the fit to road bike position....

    Yeah, that looks good, for the price. 11sp 105, vs. 8sp Claris on the others. I've got a friend looking at entry-level road bikes - gonna point her to this one.
