    Eighty best pictures from the 2019 Tour de France

    Might be of interest to some - I've not looked through all of them yet, but I bet there is a black and white one of a rider looking exhausted, in a confined space (hotel room or press room) with one of the jerseys in the background :-)...

I’ve been watching the speed of pedal rotation they going at and l’m sure l go at a similar pedal speed but no way do l reach the speeds they do .. Can someone explain why these cyclist go so much faster at what...

    Velogames isn't running it this year, so we've chosen Road.CC. Dayvo has set the league up as per below. I've pulled this out of the Tour De France thread where it was buried - We're doing the Purist league by the way, no transfers.

    Tour de France 2019 **SPOILERS**

    I thought it was about time we started to speculate wildly about the Grand Boucle Shame that FroomeDawg won't be there but plenty of others in a seemingly open race. Quintana, a busted flush? Dumoulin, a flushing toilet? Bernal or Thomas for Ineos Pinot a better French hope than Bardet...

    Tour de France 2019.

    The route will officially be announced on Thursday at 10am , English time. From what I have seen so far, I fail to see why it is still called TdF as the 2019 one will be mostly on the East and Pyrenees. I remember when the TdF used to cover most parts of France. By the way, there will be no...

    Tour de France 2018 **SPOILERS**

    Time to start the speculation and soothsaying. Is Bardet good enough to provide France with their first home winner since the Dark Ages? Will Froomedawg be allowed to ride, keep his result, recover from the Giro? Will Thomas and Bernal be Plan B and C? Will Tom Dumoulin ride? Will Valverde...

    Need tips on setting up my 1940's Tour de France derailleur

    Hey guys. I need some tips on setting up my 1940's Tour de France derailleur, as I've never set up one of these ''odd'' and ''different'' breed of animals; if you catch my drift. I know that this derailleur works with only three cogs in the rear, and I am wondering if it will work on my 80's...

    Is anyone here experienced with setting up a 1930's / 1940's era Simplex Tour de France Derailleur?

    I just bought a 1930's (OR) 1940's era Simplex Tour de France derailleur from ebay last night and I am just wondering if anyone here has set one up before. I hear they're a pain to setup because of the push rod/plunger design. Mine is arriving in a few weeks (coming from a foreign country :=)...
