    Tough bastard. Should have been given red number plates for sheer guts.

    The decal on the top tube is apt. Dual system alright!

    Nice one Shane. Not many NZers get to ride this race. Just a dream for most. Doing everything possible to finish shows the respect he has for le tour, his team, and for those back home.

  • I know the bike was in a high speed crash, but maybe they should scan and x-ray the frame as well as the rider to see why the frame broke in certain locations.

      “Archbold was given a spare bike from the team car given his first bike
      had been destroyed, not when he crashed, but when Borut Bozic of Cofidis
      hit Archbold’s bike.”

      • your missing the point,

          “…but maybe they should scan and x-ray the frame as well as the rider to see why the frame broke in certain locations.”

          …ummmm, let’s see….

          I can probably guess…without the benefit of a scan or x-ray…
          it was run over/crashed into after the initial crash… (which it survived)

          Not really sure how a scan would benefit the industry & engineering of any frame in this particular case.

          Save your requests for when the crash was “caused” by the frame breaking

          • I’m just saying as most brands are not the manufacturer of their product, the factories on Asia are. If they took an engineering approach after such an accident they could learn something. Engineers don’t guess as per your comment above.

              You’re kidding, right? It broke in certain locations because it was hit by the car. It wasn’t designed to be run over by a car.
