Rumor mill

I'll talk about my Boulder Roubaix debacle at some other point. Net:net: Ka-boom! and it's glaringly obviouls that one should not race and expect to be competitive after being sick for two weeks. It was a beautiful day though!

So my inside-the-peleton sources tell me some juicy tidbits. Look at these bikes (Hoste and Boonen's Paris Roubaix bikes). See any similarities?
My rumor mongers are indicating to me that Tommeke's Specialized is actually a custom Ridley. Truth? Dunno, but Mr. Boonen has been public about his dissatisfaction with the fit and they were scrambling with custom carbon molds for him (and Bettini) specifically. Who knows, but it makes for good Monday bike geek drama.

Boonen is back on a Time, at least that's what I heard. Look closely at the head tube. Ridley does the 1 1/8 on top, 1 1/4 on the bottom, Boonen's headtube doesn't flair out at the bottom. Just my opinion I guess.

Our Belgian bound compatriot has the inside line on the G-2 and custom Ridley seems to be the word on the street. A smallish cricket with rainbow stripes is also feeling some discontent and his mechanic now apparently hows his original frame. I'm hoping the "S" can rectify all the issues...then again, what do I know? This could be all horse cockey.
