Subject: [CR]Koblet and frame dimensions

Jan Heine remarked that there was a marked difference in the ways Koblet´s and Coppi´s bikes were set up. Jan speculated that this maybe was so because people didn´t want to change their frame building.

Watching a TV documentary on Koblet the other day I learned that Koblet won his Giro on a ready-made, stock bicycle, which was then considered to be on the small side, so it´s even worse than Jan thought.
