Roubaix tech roundup
Hopefully this will expand with some more coverage tomorrow and monday, but for now this is what I've seen
Cyclingnew's has a killer photo spread on Ballan's Lampre which is a cool looking bike. Also highlights some of the differences between his main and spare bike. Do you prefer a plastic or steel chain watcher?
27mm Paves.Paves on box setion rims and Record hubs look so good-totally ready for war. Belgian knee warmers has a good wheel tech article and some Roubaix recon photos. Check out the comments on tire pressure!
Velonews has shown a couple other teams are using modified bikes as well. Silence Lotto on Ridley X-fires Although they are riding their regular roadbikes 3 days before the race. But thanks to Het Volk, you can see Hoste is testing the new bike as well.... At least Nuyens on a modified Time.
Pezcycling went retro with a spread on Museeuw's failed full suspension Bianchi.
I think Cyclingnews deserves even more props for the wheels of Ghent Wevelgem spread. Damn that is a lot of Zipps!
