Jens Voigt is set to retire as we speak, having one final crack at a long break in some race in the Cycling backwater of the USA. Is it fair or fitting that he should go out like this, slipping out the back door with little fanfare, while others have been doing a farewell tour of all the big races, replete with fancy commemorative shoes and a son...

Until the 70′s it was common to race on gravel roads, but the Paving of the Planet has led to nearly every road being graced by smooth, black tarmac.

  1. Bike looks awesome and the accent work you’ve done on the stem is aitch-oh-tee HOT. As for the brake levers…last week I was soundly beaten in our first local CX race by a guy in baggy shorts riding platform pedals on some old beater frame (he was too fa… »
