  • Appears to be the highest ranked post about a single person by post count in ST history. It's passed the Felt thread and is closing on Shiv and P5. If it passes Shiv, it's a top 5 ever. That place has gone to hell since Rappstar left.
  • Who or what is Ashley Horner and why does this person have four threads to one about Lionel Sanders on ST?
  • Dark Matter is a gravel racer, not a cross bike. But holy crap it's fun to ride. Force 1X comes with a 42T crank, 11-42 cassette and 42mm tires. The 105 comes with a 50/34, 11-34 and 38mm tires. MSRP?

  • Maybe this should be in a new thread, but would anyone here be surprised if Sagan show's up to Worlds 5-10lbs lighter? I know he is a long shot with all the climbing (even if he dropped 15lbs would still be huge), but seems like he is really going …
  • Is there a live link to watch? I just paused my Eurosport subscription. I will happily pay to watch this.
  • @Martin and/or @Matt and/or anyone else - what are your thoughts on Lappartient? I sort of thought he might be a nice breath of fresh air when he took over the UCI, but he seems like a worthless blow hard at this point. Not any worse than the past…
  • That tracking camera is great for sprints.
  • Wout Poels climbed off his bike at one point in the TT, shared an ice cream with a fan, let three people pass him, then got back on and rode himself back into position. (This did not actually happen.) Six Sky riders in the top 25 of the last TT, in…
  • Against the Clock - Dumoulin vs Thomas Adding those five most recent TT contests together, Dumoulin holds a 380-second lead over Thomas across 159 kilometres, for a time differential of 2.4 seconds per kilometre. Extrapolating that out over 31km,…
  • Does Sagan have enough points to win the 2019 Green Jersey? Yes, they were saying after his crash he basically just has to finish in Paris and it's his. Man, this is not looking like a certainty right now. Hope he can power through this.
  • Hrm, seems that I'm the only tri-rooster that's on this forum while at work...this kind of blew up overnight. I'm thinking of just using quotes from the office to make it easier "If I had a gun with two bullets and was trapped in a room with a swi…
  • Wout Poels.
  • @Robert Rankin when I saw Demare split today before the final climb, I assumed he was done. Apparently he found his legs again just in time to climb the final ascent only 9 minutes slower than Quintana. Greipel (and others) called BS on it (but G…
  • He crashed on the descent and didn't win the stage. HOW IS PHILIPPE GILBERT STILL ALIVE?! Rode 60km on a busted patella, probably a concussion, and almost certainly bib shorts in need of a change. Remember kids: brakes stop wheels. Tires stop bike…
  • (Barguil needs monster rides tomorrow and Friday). Based on his form leading up to the tour this year, that ain't happening. He's not even riding a disguised Argon 18 anymore. Alaphillipe looks great in polka dots, and will do what he needs to de…
  • Tomorrow is going to be batguano crazy. The guys on the bus will need to ride on the rivet all day, or the Champs stage will be a sorting between Pozzo and Barguil.
  • @Martin sounds like you know what "coyote ugly" is all about. I have almost no regrets.
  • NOW sitting in the bar rehydrating and questioning my sanity and wondering what stupid combination od decisions has led to others self inflicted missery? Oddly enough, sitting in the bar rehydrating for too long is a combination that has often led …
  • I am!! Won't be making it to IMC this year though You back in the office already?

  • Last 2 days should be a nice mid-summer sales boost I had a 50-50 chance of getting the stage win when the small group went away. Guess Valgren was Plan B. Oh, and good to see those anger management classes Moscon has been taking are working so …
  • Today was the business side of the Tour. Pretty boring landscape between towns that probably paid to host start and finish line, and BMC received about $100,000 of unpaid advertising for their new aero bike, though. I like the Phil Gilbert-channelin…
  • Am I the only one that has an easier time understanding Peter Sagan than Geraint Thomas in the post-race interviews? Welsh...
  • Here is my 1x "Crit Masher" Aluminum is so underrated.
    in BAAW Thread? Comment by Martin July 20
  • Isn't he's advising Lionel Sanders? I thought Lionel was officially advised by the Slowtwitch forum.
  • I joined the instant pot craze for $78.88. We had one for a couple weeks. Returned it. We're clearly not instant pot worthy. I cook a lot of beans and make a lot of hummus. Canned beans can get pricey but getting dried beans means you need to soak …

  • Sky is amazing. Thomas looked like he did on the summit finishes at the Dauphine, and Froome's bridge and ride through to third place was just awesome. I don't think they need to choose a leader. They can both ride away from everyone else. ETA: I d…
  • Hoping you're wrong about Nibali, I'm running out of people who know how to climb. When's the next rest day for goodness sake? I would need the rest day rules to change to "You can keep only one rider" to have any chance of winning at this point, e…
  • 2 of the best time trialists, a track/classic specialist destroying all on Alpe d'Huez with a French climber. Watts are watts.
