    I've seen shaft-drive prototypes for 45 years. That's an interesting exercise; but the reality is, a chain is far-and-away the easiest, least-friction-contributing, way to move energy from petal to tire. It's why they endure in most motorcycles.

    The new Karate Monkey can be done in the Roloff with gates belt drive. One little hacksaw cut and bingo!

    If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. Nicola Tesla

But there is a definite move away from capitalism, whether we conceive of it as conscious or unconscious Capitalism finds herself like a losing football team in the last quarter trying all types of tactics to survive."

    Some guy from England won this year's Tour de France, and he was not named Froome.

    Give me back the days of Armstrong, Landis, Hincapie, and U.S. Postal. Yeah, I know what Lance admitted to. So what? It is cycling, and an American won.

    I doubt that we have seen a clean cyclist since Bernard Hinault in 1985. Maybe not even then.

    Greg LeMond? Please.
