EWS Round 8: Finale Ligure, From the Mountains to the Sea
The blue section seem to be some shuttling. If you remove this, it would be roughly 2300m uphill which is significant enough. 3300 would be way too much. Same for the totals distance of day one: you can probably remove 15-16km, which would bring the whole thing back to somewhat do-able for normal human beings.

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@hirvi: seriously, nobody forces anybody to buy carbon. So what's your problem? And no, I didn't you CAN save a little weight. You know the difference between an aluminium and a carbon Nomad for instance? Significant. Could they make the alu version lighter yet still reliable? I think so, and I would like it as I am not carbon obsessed and actually like the feel ot aluminium.

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@hirvi: you obviously refuse to understand me. You're obviously partial. I am undecided between alu an carbon, they both have something I like. Going carbon is not really what I would call the hottest trend. That was rather 10 years ago. We're in 2017 man! I rather see a revival of aluminium. Advantages of carbon? It's lighter (and even at lighter weight able to take a beating, no matter what's been said), you can make the shape you want, though so far it stayed pretty conventional. Conservatism or just in order to make a like-looking cheaper alu version? I don't know.

@hirvi: well it's said light frames made out of carbon can't take a beating. Now if a frame does not take a beating there, it will never. Need further explanation ? Just ask :)

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@Milko3D: oh sorry, wrong word. So "he suggests the idea - among other possibilities - to mount light cranks if you wanna save some weight on your bike". Do you feel better? Anyway. What if you already have light everything and still wanna shave 0.6 to 1.2 kg (semi random numbers, take note) and you could do it on a single item?

@hirvi: OK. How many carbon frames have survived rampage? All of them I think.

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
There will always be a conflict between business and eco. Now the conflict can be small, or huge. Interestingly he recommds "light cranks" that may fail. Does he mean carbon cranks?? Finally the revolutionary project with robotics is nice but you' d kill those jobs in China, and I don't see how it solves the problem of carbon recycling. Unless hés not talking about carbon ?
