I remember seeing a pic of Steve Bauer with Rockshox fitted for Paris Roubaix and the bike also had a VERY slack seat tube angle so the rider was almost sitting behind the rear hub. It looked really weird - or is my memory playing tricks on me?

I remember he was testing some weird design that had very slack angles and put the saddle way behind the BB. The designer reckoned it made for more efficient pedalling. I don't remember Steve doing much with it though. I'm sure there was a feature on it in some magazine at the time.

I'm also sure that Steve Douce used Rockshox for cyclo cross at one time.
