Cancellara’s Flanders bicycle.

Flanders is real slammy.

From cyclingnews and my secret friend James Huang.

Lyndon tipped me to this gallery of Gilbert’s bike.
Shots are by James Huang, who penned this fantastic closing paragraph:

Sure, the extreme position looks way cool, and the ‘SLAMYOURSTEM’ kids would worship the ground you roll on. But let’s be realistic here – you’re not Philippe Gilbert, and twice-daily Ashtanga yoga sessions and a closet full of Lululemon probably aren’t going to get you there, either. But if you’re 1.83m tall with a rockin’ Euro fauxhawk and still think you can pull this off, go on and try – we dare you. Let us know how things went after your resulting chiropractor appointment.

Hi James. I feel you, reaching out to me across the Internet, hugging me with that paragraph.

This Rabobank rider certainly adheres to the ‘slam that stem’ school of thought.

Hi James.  I hope you’re well.
