What a pointless article! Well, erm... maybe bikes with top tubes are well, erm, maybe a teensy bit more dangerous for erm, well really old people and, erm pregnant people. Well, maybe...

I tried counting the stupid in that article and ran out of fingers.

I think the take-home message is that if you like to crash often, then you'd be better off choosing a more upright bike as your head is slightly less likely to hit the floor (although they've provided zero figures or references to statistics).

Personally, I prefer to just avoid crashing, but maybe that's just me.

The thought of TdF riders having to use Dutch bikes is rather amusing though.

You do know that the bike in that photo is actually a French-made TVT Concorde and not an Italian-made Ciöcc Concorde? smiley

I've got a team issue Ciöcc built one in Columbus SLX. Great bike. Might even have been Sean's.

He looked 40 in his school photos and will look 40 when they put the lid on...
