Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

History Channel Modern Marvel's: Carbon Fiber

On right now... we'll see if they discuss bike frames. Initial focus is on formula one cars.

EDIT: Bah! Nevermind... they went from cars to the plane, to just carbon. No bike frames... wtf

Can't you get history channel online?
I know in Canada the entire Discovery lineup can be watched on their site.

My girlfriend and I have a running joke about how Modern Marvels has run out of material, and I'm always getting her to guess what ridiculous thing they had on last. A while ago they had "Modern Marvels: Deli Meat."

Negative. Different show, different networks. That segment on the Madone was great though.

The episode on 'mountain roads' was good, it made me want to ride the 'Going To The Sun Road'.
