    For me, I can't get over my growing obsession with Oakley Radars (in green):


    .
    .
    .
    The awesome sevelte and purposeful coolness of the current Scott Addict Team edition:


    .
    .
    .
    And those weird 'alien' Catlike helmets with loadsa-vents:

    A house in Bourg d'Oisans, France.

    Fitness, time alone and a tent in the alps.

    400+ watts at threshold. Whilst weighing 65 kg.

    Certainly makes me realise that a few dozen fat blokes cycling round a muddy field certainly should not be called a 'bike race'………

    …….also that fit healthy people actually don't look at all stupid wearing lycra cycling kit whilst cycling !!

    A hilltop château would be nice, or perhaps in a bend in a river?

    A gun so I can shoot those idiots who run alongside the riders screaming things down their ear when they're climbing a 1 in 4.

    When did you begin thinking that would help them in any way whatsoever?

    And a couple of those girls they have on the podium giving out the prizes. Just two for now.

    but what are they screaming??

    A car that delivers into my hands a top of the range, perfectly maintained bike everytime I get a puncture, mechanical or just fancy a change of colour.

    Garmin Edge 705 and a powertap would be nice.

    inclination to be bothered to get fit.
    not fittness, thats cheating.

    and a swiss chateau, with some sweeet ST out the front door (and a ski lift)
    and a podium babe, a french one
    and a tidy, light as death road bike

    A credit card bike tour, but probably Italy rather than France cos it's way nicer.

    The cateye helmet (I've tried it and it fitted perfectly, shame I had no money then), those girls (and wife away with the kid), more lungs/legs and Alps outside the garden.

    I can't look at those helmets without expecting wasps to fly out of them.

    I wanted a catlike helmet when they came out 2-3 tours ago so much i bought one! Can't imagine there are many folks mountainbiking in one but i like it. prendas.co.uk for those who are interested.

    oh, and nice big hills (ITV4 said they were decending for 30mins the other night – i go on whole rides shorter than that)

    Other than contador, it has made me want to take the bike and ride in the sun on some nice roads. So i'm going to go to near Bourg in Sept and do just that 🙂

    It's made me very happy to live in France, and feel that it has , and will be, all worht it. Not quite the alps. But nearest bits are about 1 1/2 hours away.

    The Torq team and either Kinesis or Orange Monkey used those CatLike helmets, guess they were one of the few brands available in orange!

    I'd love a Pinarello Prince certainly. Contador's legs and Cancellaras bike handling wouldn't go a miss! Even Denis Menchov's handling skills would do to be honest!

    I saw Evans were knocking that 2008 one out cheap.

    Be interested to see how you get on with the wheels, I found them awesome on the flat, but heavy and slow on the climbs, and tyres were terrifyingly loose, the front used to blow off the rim periodically! Faceplant-tastic!

    Njee that must be Menchov's secret to bike handling!

    A house in one of the Cathar villages in a mountainous area. Enough money not to need to work and a large collection of bikes. The Cérvelo bikes look good too.

    Oakley Jawbones.
    French food.
    And a road bike 🙂
