Pro: Suddenly I can always stay in the big ring, I mean how hard can it be? Even the BBox Telecom guys can do it and most of them can't even ride around a corner

Con: Keep that razor away from me!!!

Pro: People dont think you are quite as daft as normal for riding around in lycra

Con: Apparantly it is just Lance Armstrong in the race (cant begrudge his return, he is doing very well all told but there are other riders in it too)
