...or Vinokourov, he uses 'em too. A good mate of mine rides for the US Colavita team and everyone uses them there. There has to be something about them


The eggrings do seem popular :? Think it makes marginally more sense on the road than off road..

Grip Shift...by FAR!!!, oh, and Shimano's Dual Control MTB shifters... and the Onza pedals I had whose spindles snapped on the first ride...and the Amp bikes...not design-wise, just the flimsy execution with the timy bushings...and most linkane forks that dove under front brake forces...

Ooo, there has been some bad ones over the years!

Flimsy components designed for weight, not teeth! :lol:

Great devices, I love them - they are the most natural feeling shift mechanism there is. 8)

Brahma style handlebars - the curved end bits mean that your grips have to be in the middle of the bars.

Also add cutting your handlebars silly short...

*cough* although I just picked up a pair of short bars of ebay recently to experiment with *cough*
