Motor in his seat tube! The worlds gone mad!
Really a tiny motor like that even running at high speed through a gearbox is only a couple of hundred watts, and needs a good battery supply too. How is it controlled? Does it have a torque sensor on cranks and use this in a closed torque loop, thereby needing a good level of control electronics too? The noise would be more than audible from the motor at high speed !!

Go take a ride with a powermeter and you will see just how much power you can output for a short burts compared with continuous, and compare what you think is hard work with a pro cyclists power output. Difference is mind blowing. You realise these people are just animals..

:D

More than likely :lol:


FWIW I reckon this is a lot of bollocks, no way would the Fab be up to any shenanigans.

As someone else mentioned I think it might be a viral marketing stunt by gruber (who make the motors), apparently they won't fit in the frame of cancellara's bike anyway.

ahhhh scary equations! i (should) know them but still.....

Those equations are too difficult for an undeveloped brain like mine to understand, however I keep seeing a guy pedalling with an extreme ease while Boonen is sprinting up the hill.
