I like your eastern block front suspension XC mtb>>1315465>lol watching paris roubaix this year many riders had a large stack
That is something specific to the cobbled classics. More weight over the back wheel and less weight over the handlebars means faster over Pave. That's why the Specialized Roubaix is such an odd upright duck for a road bike- designed for the Cobbles.>>1315538>Practically all the guys that looked like having large stacks were on the same Roubaix frame with the shock.
Pinarello's dual susp road bike appeared to be a bust at Roubaix. And it is worth noting that the guy who finished second for Katusha team was riding a non micro-susp road bike with 25mm tires so who the fuck knows with that race.
The infrequent amounts of time people win it back to back leads me to think it's a lot of luck.>>1315424
Plus not to mention if the orange was on top it would look like the setting sun and the curve would make sense.
