So could it (theoretically) be possible that a frame is a regular frame for person A, but a lo pro for person B?
What is considered a "normal" bike/geometry?
One that fits the rider. If people were normal, that would resolve to 56cm square with an 11cm stem, but people come in different proportions and with different ranges of motion in their joints. @HHC really meant a pursuit or TT bike with drop bars when he said "normal", because drop bars were normal on pursuit and TT bikes before Lo Pros were invented.
It's about the geometry, not the wheel size.
Precisely. You can have 700 front on a LoPro (e.g. ХВЗ Тахион) or 650 front on a bike which isn't a LoPro (See Dave Lloyd)
Are they saying they've decided their is no case to answer on just the 3 sets of data that were brought up or are they saying they've gone on to review all of the other data they have and there's no case to answer?
They're saying that at this time the last thing they need is for one of their marquee athletes from the home nation of their president to become the poster girl for the blood manipulation which seems to have been the hallmark of elite endurance runners for the past decade or more. It's easy to throw a few Russians under the bus, since Russia is a notorious kleptocracy from top to bottom, so nobody is that surprised that Russian sport has integrated the national culture of 'everything is for sale'. If Paula is busted, they have to admit that it's not just in bad countries that bad things happen.
Sorry, meant Allen key.
Do I need to stick to Phil cog and lockring or can I use anything else?
You can use your DuraAce (or any other 1.37"×24TPI) sprocket, but you need a 1.32"×24TPI thread lockring, which can be Phil, Campag or one of mine, I have a couple of Italian threaded ones in 6082T6 material.

Everybody else is reporting it the other way around, what do you know?
fulcrum Quattro wheelset has roughly the same profile and price, but weighs 1725g (240g more)
The Quattro LG is deeper and wider than the Cosine wheels, but they are weighed on Italian scales so the difference is probably more than 300g even though Wiggle probably understate the true weight too. Nonetheless, Campag have been in the factory built wheel business for over a quarter of a century, so if they think a budget mid-depth road wheelset should weigh 1.8kg, I'd be wary of newcomers who think they can lose 20% of that.
DT Swiss Champion (or Alpine III)
Competition, not Champion. Or Sapim Race or ACI butted, they're all decent so it comes down to which you can get for the best price, which in turn usually comes down to whether you're buying other stuff from.the same shop as p&p is a big enough proportion of the total on 64 spokes to swing it.
