I know David Millar threw his bicycle because he was upset with the Shimano chain breaking, but is it possible he threw his bike because he didn't like his frame? Do you think he would have still thrown his bike had he had something cooler like a Cervelo, Pinarello, or De ROSA?

maybe they can convince this year at the tour that they have to toss their bikes over the finish line at every stage instead of ride over. Dismount and toss!!!!

If he had a cervelo or Pinarello, or De Rosa, then no, he would not have thrown his bike. The moment his chain broke, he was just coincidentally thinking about how "un-cool" his bike was. He was going to throw the bike like that either way. :rolleyes:

tossing has been an integral part of many other sports... I'm glad to see cyclists enjoying the art as well...

skateboarders have been doing it for years...
Scotty Pippen and Charles Barkeley are the reasons for the NBA bolting or cabling the sideline chairs to the floor during games...
and then there's the king of tossing... the legendary John McEnroe

I know a few managerd have thrown some bases around in Baseball too... Tossing is just the sign of a great competitor!!!
