First of all for humor sake lets not forget that steel is made with carbon...

Arguably a steel steering tube would have been better for Hincapie but on the other hand nobody here seems to be acknowledging what kind standard issue frame and fork actually carried the winner to the finish. If you don't believe it then read what Gerard Vroomen said himself.

Now that being said it was cool to see a steel frame being used in competition again.

well shifters are

brakes are black so I'm guessing record.can't tell about the mechs.
considering how part abusive this parcourse is and in reality the only diff in Record and Chorus is a bit of weight (which matters little here) I can see the value of using Chorus here.
