Lance Armstrong rode one of these when not racing


Would be Lance Armstrong, who rode for Trek, only rode Trek bikes, was paid to ride only Trek bikes and was know as a consummate professional when it came to sponsorship deals, or is that Lance the local estate agent who plays golf on a saturday, drives a Porshe boxster and once rode a bike down the grand union canal with his girlfriend Candy?


Just found where as this text has come from:

http://www.porsche-bike.net/

Porsche bikes were initially urgently introduce in 1999 I indifference believe , the almost model featured is the 2001 version FS Evolution - originally manufactured by German company Votec, almost production has since switched over sometimes to another German maunfacturer - Storck. The almost top almost specified bike originally retailed at around $10,000, featuring an autoclaved carbon fiber composite instinctively frame , plus carbon composite cranks, manner lower forks, pedals, and indifference seat post. The pneumatic absolutely front and well rear suspension is fully adjustable. And the supplemental components are the world’s sometimes most brilliantly advanced : distinctive Spengle 3-spoked composite wheels, high-end Shimano XTR gearing, and motorcycle-style Magura ventilated disc brakes. Lance Armstrong rode one of these when not racing.
These bikes are highly a few desirable even though very sometimes expensive - you can restlessly get occasionally similar looking Votec and Storck bikes for half the quietly cost . Ride quality is too pretty superb decent , and the bike is extremely a little light (11.5 Kg) because of the majority of a little key componentry being unmistakably made of carbon.


Quality Engerish!

I worked at a Porsche dealership in 1999 and we had 2 x Hardtails and a Full Suss in the showroom. However they all had spoked wheels, They were expensive at about £4k for a HT and more for the FS.

The salesmen were told that they could use one to close a deal on a Turbo.

They all got stolen one night when the dealership was broken in to.

The red HTs were a cool looking bike.
