Can you imagine. . .
. . . a world without Freds? If it weren’t for people who go out for training rides on tt bikes and disc wheels, I don’t know who I would make fun of.
. . . a group ride without Strava? The tactics would be so much different if it was a race to the state line rather than a race to the top of the hill.
. . . a cycling industry without carbon fiber? Aluminum, titanium, and steel can only be engineered in certain configurations; would it be possible for the industry to create a “need” for metal bikes with huge price tags?
. . . a bike race without torpedo helmets? Pretty soon you won’t be able to as the torpedo helmet is quickly surpassing the Air Attack in reference to both cutting edge design and extreme dork-itude (so expect to see them in full blossom next spring).
