What the Pros ride

Posted: October 10th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: bicycles | No Comments »

Over the past racing season I’ve noticed two equipment choices that must drive the sponsors made.  First, the Pros seem to prefer the Sidi Genius (with three velcro straps) to the top end Sidi Ergo 2 (which uses the fishing line winch and two velcro straps).  Second, and more interestingly, a  lot of the pro tour teams are using at least the Record and not top-end Super Record rear derailleur.  Why? I wonder.

As an example, check the Quickstep and Lampre riders in the picture.
