    Funny that you used the term "glued to", because your 1100A is a glued frame.:p

    I'm trying to stay with this tour, but today really was unbelievable.

    Another awful "telecast", if one could call that a telecast. It was more like listening on radio, but even worse. The riders...

    Epic ride by Jensie!

    700 meters short of the win. A shame he didn't get it, but he really solidified his reputation today as one of the gutsiest, tough-minded riders the peloton has ever seen.

    My guess is yours is a 1989 1100A due to that beautiful paint scheme. I believe they changed the name to the 1400A in 1990-91 years. I really like that two-tone paint job.

    I have a 1990 AlumiTech,...

    Wow, terrible crash at the finish.

    They took the GC favorite, Stybar, to the hospital so he's out. He flipped and landed flat on his face. Ugly!

    Is it me, or are these sprint finishes getting...

    You might want to check your listings again, because Comcast has merged with Time Warner, and they provide Universal in HD in their basic package. So maybe you have it now and don't even know it.

    There is both live HD coverage and replays of the Eneco almost all day on Universal Sports just like NBC/SN did for the TDF. It's a great feed, comparable to...

    Well, the first two stages looked tailor made for the sprinters, but they failed in both. None of the sprint teams even got close. None of them ever got a lead out...
