MTB Tech We've Spotted at the 2020 Tour de France
Sep Kuss was an absolute hero the way he rode and lead out the yellow jersey on two consecutive days of the hardest stages in the tour. The entire Jumbo Visma squad has battled and dominated the peloton as a whole. Epic racing this year... if only Sagan didn’t get declassified for the head bump he may have found a little more drive in the mountains.

@betsie: yeah it has, such epic mountain battles and the green jersey / KOM battle has been a true joy. The scenery has been exceptionally epic as well.

@Twenty6ers4life: ditto and ditto and Nadda..Same here, been on moto since can-am and Maico were the ones to have. Pedals even longer and never had the urge to swap out my bicycle levers. I really don’t know why or what it is. A lot of my old enduro (real enduro) racer pals swap their bikes over to left rear and I just could never get the feel for it, For me I think the clutch had way more use than the brakes and I never stabbed my left lever on my pedal bike looking for more hit or another gear,

@houli77: I think I am in the same boat here.. on both moto and pedals for 45 plus years.. never once on my bicycle did I grab the left hand lever thinking it was the clucth. Pretty sure it is just something Imbred like metric system vs. non metric. And I have never grabbed the rear (right hand lever..lol) on my bicycle thinking in was the front.

@ridestuff: Don’t hate me, I remember when those frigging things showed up 25 plus years ago when I was service manager at a respected shop. Such a pain in the arse. I am a firm believer in people taking responsibility for their own actions. Sadly my country and the laws think otherwise... if I sued everyone and everyplace I wrecked, got a bump,scrape or bruise (or was emotionally scarred) on, I would be running the shows here and it would be a lot different!
