below is a pic of a Williams bottom bracket axle. as you can see its splined. Gnutti were thought to be the first proponent of splined bottom brackets axle's/spindles and predate the Williams by a few years. of course both beat shimano by quite a few years.

i just REALLY like it and its one of the neatest bike things i have found. its super well made and machined and is hollow - its part of the AB-77 crankset ensemble and its patent dates from 1961.

Hey, I know that corner well ...Geardaddy

I've taken that route many a time, and it's not that flat.
About 1 mile up that road you'll be using your 39 chainring.

Oct 1, 2002 8:16 AM
Right - if you head south. It's not so bad when you head
east towards Canterbury Park. That's where we went that
day.

I felt particularly good - just blazing away for 20+ mph
for long stretches. I don't think I've been that consistent
since that day. I finally made my friend lead so I'd slow
down a bit. My wife thinks I'm nuts when I do > 30 mile
jaunts.

I also have taken Eagle Creek east to that large hill
going up into Chaska and Prior Lake beyond it. Not
recommended during rush hour but when there's little
traffic it's murder going uphill and heaven going down.

One time I ended up at Prior Lake Swimming beach and it was
weird. Tons of bikini girls and a geek biker. I refilled
my water at their public access and moved on.

I live in Bloomington, so I often traverse Eagle Creek Blvd when taking routes south to Prior Lake or west to Shakopee or Chaska. McKenna road is definitely the best route to shoot up towards Prior Lake. Note that you can also take Pike Lake road too; it's dirt, but it's hard packed and rideable.

The killer hill to the east that you're referring to is Hwy. 18 I believe. I often take that hill up to a left-hand turn at Hwy 16 (McColl road), which is a good route to go towards Burnsville. I never take it further up the hill as the traffic is sketchy indeed.

Nice ride. I had my own experience with the Triple Bypass in Colorado the last two years, but I didn't want a "Mine is bigger than yours" post, although in this particular circumstance I don't think that is a battle either of us could win!

Glad you like your Trek. That carbon sure smoothes things out, doesn't it?

I took this picture back in... well, no, why don't you guess when this picture was taken. And while you are at it, try answering the following (in increasing order of difficulty):
1. I won't even ask who the guy w/ the rainbow is -- if you dont know, well, you dont know....
2. Who is the guy in front?
3. Where is this?
4. Who is the guy behind the rainbow jersey? and
5. Who won this stage?

oh, and for extra points -- shimano or campagnolo?

Good luck....

You are right, read excerpt.onespeed
Oct 1, 2002 7:31 AM
Ex-PDM team leader Jan Gisbers was speaking from his pained heart. The publication of the drugs scandal involving PDM and the former PDM team doctor Wim Sanders from Geleen, has caused him a lot of pain. There is a sense that his defence has left him a little bitter.

"Manfred Krikke and I agreed that we must get rid of Wim Sanders after the intralipid affair in the 1991 Tour. But humane trust and naivety are a little bit the same. Because his doctor's practice has now caused considerable damage the reaction to us will always be negative in the newspapers."

What a great day -- few people know that there is a dirt trail leading up to the Alpe d'Huez -- I had my Mtn. bike w/ me and let me tell you -- the descent on that trail is scary fast!!

I had the opportunity to meet Mari Holden a couple of years ago. I actually got to spend a fair amount of time riding and visiting with her. That opened my eyes to women's racing. They (you) are so fast, strong and entertaining to watch.

Now for the real interesting part - as much as I enjoy looking at fit women in tight clothing, the entire sexual aspect of that experience disappears when I watch women race. They transform, in my mind, from female athletes to athletes. And body shape does not equate with racing success. I saw a woman at the BMC criterium in Austin who was rather large absolutely SMOKE the rest of the field - lapped 'em all. I would never have guessed that she could have done that.

BTW - Just so there's no confusion, that's Mari on the left!

Oct 1, 2002 7:29 AM
Mari races locally and she's awesome. Lemme tell you though, it's a cold shock to the system to line up at the weekend crit and see world stripes on the sleeves of the rider standing next to you...

Right on about the size/shape thing. I personally resemble a stuffed sausage in lycra, but I can hold my own. I think the BMC gal you might be referring to is Laura Van Gilder, one of the fastest crit sprinters in U.S. women's racing. When I saw her win the 'Toona circuit race in '98, I gained renewed hope for my own less than ideal physique :)
