peter_sagans_paris-roubaix_winning_specialized_s-works_roubaix_5.jpg

Peter Sagan rode on a traditional bike last April 10, 2018 winning the Roubaix Paris race.  No Di (electronic shifting) and only rim brakes.  We are reminded of him dumping bike with Di that failed (dead batt).

He quarreled with PR and Marketing of Specialized.  

So why dont we have a Tarmac of SL6 carbon bike frame even for a show if not the skill, strength and speed of Peter Sagan

                                                     Sabi ni VM, start ng Surname namin, could we sue?
                                                              Hahaha
