Wiggins's bike.

Apparently the reason no osy rings used:

I have an acquaintance that rides for Sky and asked him what the low down on the use of these rings is. Apparently, Wiggo doesn't train on them on his road bike most of the year and neither do a lot of the guys that used them last year. The reason is the shifting- its simply so sh!tty its annoying in training. Also, some of the guys feel that they're only useful for the peak period and its partially mental. I guess some of them also find it easy to adapt to them. A few have ditched them permanently as the shifting is that bad with mechanical I guess.


Doesn't make sense to me. If the shifting is so bad, would you really go into a race thinking you could slip up at a crucial moment...

Is that saddle from the guy on WW? Does that count as commercially available.
I'm left handed, if that matters.

Re: the canyon, think they need to cut the nose of the saddle off, looks a little proud.

Yeah, but you won't be seeing it in the pro peloton (triathlon only).

LMAO!

That Berk industries seat and integrated seat post is made by a Slovenian chap (IIRC) who posts on Weight Weenies. He makes stupidly impressive carbon frames and components. Incredibly talented chap.

He posted about making some parts for SKY well before Christmas, so nice to see it's worked out for him.

That BMC Time Machine is beautiful.

I'd love to have a go on their Roubaix frame as well. The GF01 is it?
