Bike Pron 5: Pro-Winner

This bike was ridden by a 45 year old pot belge addict we bumped into at a few races. I remember the day this picture was taken well because it was the only day where it just rained non-stop. Absolutely shocking day. I got 27th, and only 10 or so guys finished. It was a stinker of a course too- narrow roads, with about 15 corners every lap. not my cup of tea.

This was one of the smaller bikes I bumped into overseas. A lot of the Dutch blokes are really tall, but Belgies can be quite short as well. Despite being small this bike weighed an absolute tonne. My bike was lighter than it- my bike is a 56.5cm top tube, this would have been a 52-53cm top tube. That's despite being full carbon, with carbon clincher wheels.

Other notable features of this bike include the 4ZA (forza) wheels, which are Ridley's wheel brand made in Taiwan. New Campagnolo Chorus, looking very smart indeed. check out the website at www.pro-winner.be.

4ZA = paying more for Gigantec carbon rims than you need to. Don't know who makes their alloy wheels though.

Let's be honest. It's an ugly, heavy bike with a decent group and a cool seat.
