    Remind me, did Yates say his rivals should be shitting themselves or pissing themselves?

    Disappointing for Tao. Hopefully once the dust settles he can take heart (Hart?) from the fact he’s showing incredible promise and great things are on his horizon. Chapeau

    I’d have emptied the bottle on the cunt’s crotch. Fucking liberty

    I'd ever heard of such a thing, the internet has really come on leaps and bounds hasn't it!

    Turns out going from -17 to -6 nulls the different and a quick potatoshop on my current setup doesn't look too noticeable a compromise if it does prove too low.

    I don’t ‘gram and have only just discovered this thread, so apologies if I’m late to an echo party!

    I’ve been offered a decent deal on a frame that I don’t want to pass up on but the steerer has been cut down leaving the front end 10mm lower than my current regular ride, all components being equal. I don’t have any issues with my current position when I’m in form and well stretched except if I’m riding over 90 miles, which I almost always avoid because thoughts turn to beer before that.

    My initial thought is that it’ll be alright but before I blow my beans I thought I’d ask here if I’m being naive?

    I’d like to keep a flat stem for aesthetics, obvs. But if I buy it and it does prove to be too low a front end what other options do I have? Other than hours of yoga...

    At least he’s only asking for £3k for it

    As a Team Motorola Merckx owner, this makes my eyes hurt

    Yup. He's gone for the statement-specs as personality option today I see

    “I’ve been thinking about this race for almost 12 months now,” Yates said. “I’ve been very dedicated, very focused about it. If I was in my rivals’ position, I would be scared. I would be shitting myself.”
