Are these decent bikes?
AH The Man who will be King. I think you will find that Robbie McEwen and Boonen, both being sprinters have very little chance of winning the tour. Both riders will win stages but will DIE in the Mountains. Infact I don't look for Boonen or Hushovd to even finish the tour. The Tour will come down to who is best in the TT's and in the Mountains.
With that said: I'm going with Bob Roll and an all USA Podium
1st HINCAPIE, George USA DSC
2nd LANDIS, Floyd USA PHO
3rd LEIPHEIMER, Levi USA GST
but at this point I'm not sure about third.
Standings after Stage Three:
1 101 BOONEN, Tom BEL QSI 14:52:23.000 00:00:00.000
2 026 ROGERS, Michael AUS TMO 14:52:24.000 00:00:01.000
3 003 HINCAPIE, George USA DSC 14:52:28.000 00:00:05.000
4 118 HUSHOVD, Thor NOR C.A 14:52:30.000 00:00:07.000
5 009 SAVOLDELLI, Paolo ITA DSC 14:52:38.000 00:00:15.000
6 083 BENNATI, Daniele ITA LAM 14:52:38.000 00:00:15.000
7 071 LANDIS, Floyd USA PHO 14:52:39.000 00:00:16.000
LEIPHEIMER, Levi USA GST 19:52:41.000 00:00:28.000

I have a Giant Crypress bicycle. Can I install a Truvative Hussefelt triple crank set with 22/32/44 rings ?
I could see Hincappie winning, though McEwen has been looking very strong. I will be pulling for one of the Americans, maybe Hincappie or Landis?
I had been picking Basso to win since the '05 Tour ended, but that changed a bit the night before.
