@jacksplats @cyclocross@W_T_BLOL! I am assuming this was said in complete jest ... these actually look pretty cool and 35mm is about perfect for tubeless for cross.

While I have a disc crosser as well, I will view it as a sad day if the canti bikes go away. Glad to see All-City maintaining ...

@HandDowns @cyclocross@ChallengeTiresdepends on the bike too. Loose gravel is best on wider tires. However, somebody needs to release a gravel tread in a 28 - agreed! I would love to be able to ride my road bike in some gravel stuff and the lack of real tread in this size is a huge handicap. 20 years ago they existed, why not now???

The chain tool looks sweet - could replace 3 of the damn things I have now. Very cool

Nice ... very nice. Though I wouldn't call the Versus saddle top shelf ;) Interesting how the Elite Nats champ and the SS one both ride the bottom of the line (padded) version of the Aliante - makes me feel more pro as I succumbed to the same trend!
The Harrow is such a beautiful bike ...

And next year we will see the same. It is like congress and how they address medicare reimbursement and the AMT. Wouldn't it be grand if we could get an injunction against any government funding for USAC because of their non-competitive business environment and their disruption of competition.

I love that ... brought a smile to everyone I have shown it to. Thanks for sharing.
1 month ago on Video: Sven Nys vs. Zdenek Stybar – All the Highlights, with Subtitles
One thing that struck me in rewatching this race was the bike and rider setup. The juniors, almost to a man, are riding smaller frames than we see at the Elite level or any level of say 5-10 years ago. In addition, most of the bikes have the lower BB style and they are all running extreme saddle to bar drops.
So to my eyes it appears that either the new breed of rider is long arm/leg and short torso or cross "fit" is going the way of the road - more forward with bigger drop rather than more upright and relaxed.
Useless musing done ...

He got 8th overall. He was the French rider, I believe ... looked gruesome though!
If we could somehow see the power files from these guys that would be cool. Everyone keeps talking about the fact that Stybar was stronger but I didn't see that. I think that he had more punch but in the end he made the fewest mistakes and that was the difference. Every time he turned the screws, Nys responded. I was very surprised to see the old man hanging on and pressuring ... impressive display by both.

Class act ... Sven is what I love about this sport. Toss in a few barriers, a bit more mud and who knows what the outcome. One of the best races I have seen.
AND I love the fact that he did not say, "Second doesn't matter because I came here to win." Statements like that (which commentators and other riders make) make me cringe. It is extremely disrespectful to the other riders, the fans and the sport. Look at the woman's race - the ride for 3rd was brilliant and exciting.

Holy crap - what a race. Stybar may be on his way to become the next great non-GC rider. And to everyone who questioned @TheJonathonPage 's inclusion on the team .... uh, time to eat some crow.

This story is one of the great things about cross. No way in the world would we have a similar thing on the road, TT, or track. The politics among other things would never allow it. Good luck Allen and savor every moment.
