    So back in the spring there was talk that Spartacus was going to go after the record, but that fizzled for some reason. AFAIK, It's been a long time since anybody even gave a serious effort at this...

    All props to Nibali, but the crashes made this year's TdF boring. The Vuelta has all the makings of an epic battle - so far.

    which bike for a serious climbing ride?

    I'm contemplating a ride in western Wisconsin this coming Saturday that has more climbing than anything I've done recently - about 6000' over 75 miles. The hills are typical of that area - 200-300'...
