Well said, Steel.

I've been advocating for the return of down-tube friction shifters for a long time.

And toe-clips.

Remember when Zabel pulled his foot out in that sprint a few years ago?
None of the other sprinters sat up and waited for him.
Probably because they would have had to re-start the sprint at 50m.
But still...he was so cheated out of a stage win by all those other un-sportsmanlike riders not following the unwritten rules.
