but as it was a pro team and it ended up being significant to the reults i would have wanted more than a handshake.

if it was my c-40.......... sheesh

a very BIG $$$ thank you would have been what id expect.

nevertheless

true stories are always more amazing than fiction

go to the picture and see how both bikes have them pointing up almost the same way.

Might be a Shimano "adaptation". ;-)

FWIW: I suspect many/most Ergo users have their hoods set-up almost horizontal.

YMMV

that all people who use Campy are "cool" and all those who use Shimano are "dorks"?

I think the difference in mounting position has to do with the shape of the levers. I.e. The STI levers have a "shorter" and more curved design (compared to Ergo) which encourages the "high" mounting position. Although I sold my STI bike early last year, I do recall having the levers mounted fairly high to get them to feel reasonably comfy. I never did really "adapt" to them .... so, away it went ;-)

IMHO, Ergo levers are more comfy "flat" or nearly so than tilted up. Ultimately, it's a personal deal though.

...maybe their trying to compensate for something? :)

Remember - It's not about the bike. :-)

Same pedals too? Michael Rogers' a lucky, lucky man.
