Just saw George go down when his handlebars snapped of the head tube. Anyone want some cheap TREK stock.

Thanks for sharing that in the title. You do realize some people like to watch it taped, later, right?

Racing season is in full swing, guess it's time to start explaining why not putting race results in thread titles is a considerate thing to do.

Buy what you want.

But, Hincapie's wheels, the deep carbon Aeolus models, seemed to hold up rather well considering the high spoke count of most other rider's wheels. P-R always has innovative product placement for bikes. This year it just didn't work for George.

You're new, and despite the attitude you've already displayed, we do have an agreed-upon rule here that if you are going to post about races and the content of the post contains something about the outcome, then you don't put content in the thread title but you do put the word SPOILER in the title. Either that or you post in the Pro Cycling forum. It's a simple request that needs to be refreshed every season.

as a new member myself

i am greatful to have come across this before inadvertantly spoiling a race for many. That would have been embarrasing. Where can one read some rules and ettiquette as far as posting is concerned?

You don't think he first crash at 20 miles might have had something to do with it?

The stress of the cobbles is horrendous.

I wonder if George pre-rode the cobbles with that fork. Also was he the only rider using the offending fork? I'm heartbroken for George, he deserved to win and seemed to be set up perfectly.

why was it offending? the aluminum steerer broke right? maybe it was damaged in his first crash? it was a crazy wicked looking crash. later.

Isn't this in the Pro Cycling forum? I thought open discussion was permitted here? Even spoilers.

Anyway, I do agree that his wisecracks back at you are unnecessary.

new here and rules

folks I'm like the crotchety old grand dad/historian here, there are and have been no spoilers on thise site for years. you don't need to put an alert, or SPOILER on it. this is the RACE forum and guys post in real time or just after. If you are watching it on tape, stay out until you see it. The spoiler (or lack of) rules have been posted in this board numerous times. If ya don't wanna know don't look. Been that way for the last 3 years.

as for George, crap luck. Treks first year using CF steer tubes, not so good.

Hey ATP,

Do you mean CF steer tubes this year? It was actually aluminum.
