Interesting, I'd always known that Armstrong used dt shifters in the mountains in those years, but never noticed Ulrich ran the same setup.

Maybe not classic as such, but I found this photo quite amazing from Vuelta 2012.

Actually the lbl pic was awesome and I d'ld and will see if I can make it poster-worthy with a little ps work.

Very large images might be better off with links and then just shrink a smaller version down for the ease of seeing it in the forum without it displaying full size.

I am kind of surprised the bulletin board doesn't offer come sort of sizing function or autosizing to prevent this weird and awkward horizontal scrolling. It's 2012 for crying out loud, not 1998.

It really isn't the riders that disgust me so much as the culture that evolved to make the sport the **** of jokes (and deservedly, which makes it even more painful). But wrong forum. Sorry. Although there is one rider that disgusts me above all others.

Here's Pantani using it


It's much easier to spot on a Shimano setup (Lance) than on a Campagnolo setup (Ullrich, Pantani), because Campagnolo run the gear cable along the handlebar (unlike Shimano pre-2008) and because the Campagnolo break lever looks almost exactly like the gear/brake lever(notice the missing shift paddle in the picture), whereas riders on Shimano would use an 'old-school' brake lever, that looks dramatically different from the Shimano gear/brake-lever.

Yeah... but it kinda does look a bit funny.

And I think we might know the guilty part!
