Got some good pics of bikes. Henk Vogels actually rides and aluminum Ridley frame. He says he prefers aluminum. He even rides it in the classics. Got some pics of the BMC rides and others. Cervelo had some sweet bikes too! Cancelara's bike was carbon that he won Roubiax on, I thought sure it'd be aluminum.

Some people are riding the alu ridley's because the carbon ones have a lot of problems of breaking. Cancellara was riding full carbon frame and full carbon fork during P-R, where as hincapie was on alu/carbon and boonen was on steel/carbon. If you or anyone gets a chance ask the mech. why some of them are riding clinchers...

What???

Where did you get the info that GH was on an aluminum trek? That's not true. They said and if you look at the pictures you can tell it's a 5200 with the seat stay cut and an elastomer stuck in for shock absorbtion. I don't think TB was on steel, but I could believe it alot more than the info about GH. Look at the pictures of his bike. You can clearly see there are no welds, unlike Henk Vogels bike and VanPetegem you can see the welds.
