Mechanical doping

Been finding reading about this very interesting, it's out there on most sites and seen it on the sports news all over Europe.
This one seems to round it all up pretty well, <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://nsmb.com/electric-doping-discovered-cx-world-champs/">http://nsmb.com/electric-doping-discove ... ld-champs/</a><!-- m -->

Rumours have been around for a while now about these , but I for one never took it seriously.
Very neat and clever piece of engineering. The ability to convert a standard bike is a nice touch. Be good for people struggling with health to keep up the riding. Wonder what these retail at?
Could imagine these coming in cheating in grass routes racing, wonder if there's an easy quick way to check for them?

Have a look at this clip. See the dude in white at around the 8 seconds mark? He does a tricky little move with his left leg and then spins off up the hill like a demon, what's he up to?

Her poxy excuse was my favorite bit.

UCI can mandate a hole in the bottom of the seat tube to allow simple inspections

Probably deadpool! Only need a worm gear on the crank & drill end, plus some big-ass battery packs. How hard can it be Big Grin

Looked into these last week, as Cheryl may need an electric bike if we move further from her work.
The nice, seat-tube - bottom bracket system retails around a cool £2000!!! Confusedhock: Gruber Assist Kit
Personally I'd rather buy her a car or motor scooter thing for that money.

Might look at the standard bike conversion kits instead, they "only" add an extra 10-20 kilos to a normal bike, but can at least be removed relatively simply. A quick scud tells me they're available in UK for <> £400
