    Not exactly the same, but food for thought... Boonen won the green jersey in the '07 TdF on an aluminium alloy frame when everyone else was on the fribé. It looks to be similar to the SWorks E5 frameset from '03ish.

    The interwebs has plenty of rumours saying that this bike was a steel pegoretti (doesn't reaklly look like it), or at least that Boonen raced at some stage on one.






    And this is his bike from the 07 roubaix. That doesn't look like any Speciliazed I've seen, apparanely aluminium alloy also. Note that he one in 2008 on a Specialized Roubaix (carbon with excellent vertical compliance). Aluminium in the roubaix??!!

    On a similar note, Cuddles had a Ti Baum painted up as a Ridley which he used to use for training.

    RKP has the story on the Boonen bike. Spesh basically did him a custom Allez to get his geo right before knocking out a Tarmac mould in his size, because moulds are expen$$$$ive.

    The Pegoretti story is total horseshit.

    This is meant to be a Pegoretti? Would be cool if true, oversized Columbus tubing?

    Good reading, if you have a few minutes.

    Panache, flair and a fuckload of recreational and performance enhancing addititives. Man, his story is fucked up. pretty damning indictment of pro cycling. would make a good telemovie though.
    oh. i was thinking like Smorgys only 100 times bigger.

    that's kinda like sleeping with your best friend's wife, then asking him to wipe your dick afterwards
    you revived a 4 month old thread to say you love ball sacks?
    So how do I machine a sidewall? Do I use a hammer and a chisel, or do I pour acid all over my rims?
    Self delusion and garlic bread.
    Giving people grief is all I have left. Why would you take that away?

    My understanding was that Cav was riding a Beercanium Scott whilst with HTC up until the big 'S' took over sponsoring that team.

    Everyone else was on the 'fantastic plastic' but he couldn't get a bike to his liking made out of it.
