I am tired of Team Cars, Radios, Mechanics changing racers tires, etc. Love to see a race where the riders had to fend for themselves. Maybe throw in some gravel.
Here we go again. I really believe Carbon Fiber is a wonderful material to build bikes with. If I was 20 years old and racing then CF makes some sense. But if you are a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) and want to go for a quick but relaxed ride then steel or Titanium makes more sense.
If you tend to keep your bikes for years and consider durability a key feature then steel and ti take the lead again
Carbon bicycles, as nice as they are, are just like the new cars – They all look the same – carved out of a wind tunnel with a team of Engineeers hovering computers. Guess I am just old.
