Bachetta is an option as well.
This article just posted online also. It's tells a great story.

“People with brain cancer don’t get to quit,” Parker said. “What kind of a message was I sending if I stopped?”

I agree with you on the NoCom - great/fast machine. Have you seen John Morciglio's work?

Wow. Carbon fiber, front wheel drive/moving bottom bracket.

Not as hard to ride as you would think - fast turns, you just lean. Even for slow turns it works ok (outside leg has to rotate so you can reach around the headtube).

I thought John had given up on FWD/MBB style bikes. His other stuff is great as well, but the one pictured would do nicely.

Take a look at Salsa's Woodchipper bars.

Lynskey makes those frames, for Salsa. Lynskey has a loft, where they post returns, demo units, blems, etc. You can get into one for pretty cheap. Right now, in-stock frames are 20% off. If you "like" their FB page, you get all the low-down on specials.

Ditto with the Ridley frames they sell

He mentioned something like that but, throw enough $$$ at him and I'm sure he'd build you one. But, he also said his other designs are faster.

I love the look but prefer a production bike over a one-off custom. Otherwise, I would have purchased a Carbent over a Bacchetta.

From stage 5 today.

Interesting.

Quote:
View Juan Antonio Flecha Giannoni’s race data in TrainingPeaks: http://bit.ly/12mO8XA

Flecha didn’t have power data for this stage, but this gives us the opportunity to look at his heart rate and speed data - and draw some different observations than the usual.

All else being equal, a lower heart rate for the same effort indicates better cardiovascular fitness. According to his TrainingPeaks data, Flecha’s resting HR is 32 bpm - well below the average range of 60-100. During the five and a half hour stage, Flecha only averaged a heart rate of 124 bpm!
124 bpm is 66% of his threshold HR. This means Stage 5 was an aerobic, pretty "easy" ride for him...

...but taking it easy doesn’t mean taking it slow. Despite his low heart rate, Flecha completed the stage with the lead group, averaging 37.8 kph (23.5 mph). He reached a peak speed of 84.6 kph (52.6 mph) on the final descent and final few kilometers of the stage racing towards the line. What would your heart rate be if you were going 23.5 mph on the bike on flat land?

Even the sprinters can climb at the Tour. Flecha’s file shows 2292 meters (7519 feet) of climbing for the day.
7500 feet climbing and today was considered a "flat" stage.

Watching my recordered stage five now.
"She who must be obeyed" and I have decided we must go back to France.
Two goals
1. stand in a village while thenrace goes by,
2. Rent an apartment above the Champs Elase for the final.

I'm real sure I didn't spell that right.

Wow the HR data is amazing and mind boggling 32bpm resting is insane. I would love to see HR data on Ryan dungy or Poto during moto 2 of a national just to see where their cardio is compared to a pro cyclist.

I drive my wife nuts talking about cardio and HR, training zones, intervals, etc. I'm a numbers guy and she just tunes me out after a while.

Happy 4th everyone! I'm impatiently waiting for a series of storms to pass so I can take the mtb out for a gravel ride.

When I was racing my resting pulse was 25 or so. I could drop it to below 20.
Right now at 60 years old my resting pulse is mid 50's.
Once I get a little more conditioning in me, I'll have to go back to not getting up from laying down quite so quickly, or from sitting.

And on that note, it's time for me to go find some of that cardio.

Sorry.

Didn't think a riders HR stats would be considered a spoiler.

*edit*
My bad.
I see the Cav update at the end.

Won't happen again.
