The race of the funny hat.Every team seems to have included one or two riders fresh off the Tour. One would either feel ruined or unbeatable a week after that slug fest, more than likely, ruined. I imagine there are a few riders dodging calls from their directors this week. Continue reading...

  1. @Gianni We’re all doomed from the start. Throw me a beer. »

The Bike. It is the central tool in pursuit of our craft. A Velominatus meticulously maintains their bicycles and adorns them with the essential, yet minimal, accoutrement. The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

  1. @Mikael Liddy What a bummer, esp.  given the timing. I hope your ex-LBS makes it right before you shut the door on their paint-chipped ass. »

  1. @frank Yep, I plead an Apple device paired to a Windows blue screen of death brain. »

  1. Gianni, you are quite the word wrench.  Top marks.  Bringing your guns to a dogfight. »

  1. Agree with you all.  He’s been at all the right places and kept his cool, racing maturity beyond his years (like I would fucking know).  He deserves the podium but that would mess with my VSP. Wouldn’t Quinoa Quintana be a great name for his kid? »

Its true that socks can be any color you like, but the Velominatus knows in their heart that the only true choice is the color Coppi, Anquetil, Merckx, De Vlaeminck, Hinault, Fignon, and LeMond rode: white.We drew the line at offering a color outside of white, but we do understand that the Goldilocks Principle can’t offer a single perfect len...

  1. She’s a beauty, Brett.  I love the lines and color scheme.  Ditto for the Resurrection Story. Having recently acquired a singlspeed, a comparatively brutish-looking affair, I do enjoy the different dimension, and new challenges, it’s brought to riding.  … »

  1. @Gianni Yeah, I do like the look of that Rose, all radar-evading stealth-like.  Wiggle will ship them to the US for about $500.  Maybe there’s a VAT rebate? And they make a 63cm! »

  1. @Steampunk you are the DS and never forget it. »

  1. That’s harsh Frank. No good deed going unpunished once again. And to top it off, having called Michelle “WallY” Bachmann, rather charitably, batshit fucking crazy and now this, you’re going to end up on some no-fly, no-drop ride list. Had my own dust-up… »

  1. @Steampunk Exactly. As I picked Cunego, I thought “is this what it’s come to?”. »

  2. @Rob Serves me right for trying to be a smart-arse. I have to say the possibilities weren’t overly inspiring for this one, like having to choose between dry weet-a-bix and cold oatmeal for breakfast. But the race itself should be great. »
