    high-tech hotness

    pics of some olympic bikes: http://www.cyclingnews.com/road/2004...ech/?id=bikes3

    the old-school campy(?) hubs on the BT are a nice touch.

    Those wheels are probably the training wheels on that corima like thing.
    I carried it around with me for days and days.. playing little games like not looking at it for a whole day and then.. looking at it. to see if I still liked it. I DID!

    Funny how they call the one bike "stealth" despite the ugly effin' Araya disc in back. All in all, though, very pretty bikes.

    I am not normally into the whole aero, techno, etc etc thing but those are some sexy rides and parts.

    those aren't the old school campy hubs. they're the high flange hubs from the last year campy made high flange hubs...which was 2001, i think. it'd be nifty if they were the real race wheels, but i bet they're not...

    This whole high-tech bike craze is stupid and arguably unfair to the athletes. It has become the battle of technologies more than battle of humans. Bring on the keirin. It is about time olympic committe impose stringest rules on the weight, aerodynamics etc. to make the playing field even (and I am talking of all the bikers in poor countries who could very well be better bicyclists, and who cannot afford these monstrocities).
    p.s. my rant is not aimed at the original poster or any of you. just venting.

    This is the only problem with the whole underground cycling thing is that since people don't follow the rules they don't realize the how many regulations and rules the international organizations lay down. I know in the tour de france many teams were scraping the bottom with the weight limits and thats it is illegal to add aerodynamic parts to your bikes. Go to the international cycling federations website and download the rule book or to the tour de france site and download there rule book. The only reason those bikes are becoming so aero is because you can make a fame or wheel areo but you can't add something to it to make it aero, like wheel covers are banded but disc wheels are not. Also don't forget they have band the aero bars in track racing. There's allot more force in the racing world that meets the eye.
    I carried it around with me for days and days.. playing little games like not looking at it for a whole day and then.. looking at it. to see if I still liked it. I DID!

    Gotta disagree with you there. I'd rather see less control by governing bodies to allow for more Graham Obree-esque designs and atheletes in cycling. I think restrictions to design and equipment are bad for cycling. Sometimes I think the UCI wishes it would have stopped the progression of bicycle design with the penny farthing. Don't get me wrong, I love my classic lugged steel bikes, but I'd also like to see more unknowns setting world records on bikes they built with parts from washing machines.

    I'm with bombusben. Restrictions on equipment are bad for the sport.
