If sponsorship was not a deciding factor, how would you spec the team road bikes to last a season? Choose any mix of components from among, but not limited to the following:

A no brainer! Tout MAVIC (all Mavic) from 1979. All sealed bearings, everything held together with circlips®, Sean Kelly and Greg Lemond... great stuff.

The company dates to 1890 (Manufacture d'Articles VĂ©locipediques Idoux et Chanel), first aluminum rim in 1926, TdF Neutral Support since 1973, Sean Kelly King of the Peloton for a decade, Greg's 8 second victory in the 1989 TdF... ya gotta luv it!
