Cervelo's new $5k rodent trap Quote | Reply

Had what I thought was a mouse problem in my garage. No luck with the mouse trap. Today I noticed this as I walked past my S3 in the work stand. Not sure why it was climbing on my bike, but this guy's got some serious bad luck.

He was trying to put your chain on the right ring.

Ha! Hilarious.

I know, I should've put it in the big ring for the photo. Next time....

That's why the P4 has that little "nose" near the top of the seatstays; not for aerodynamics, it's a "cowcatcher" to keep rodents from getting jammed in there.

I believe it's a chipmunk, a small ground squirrel.

This is why Crowie chose the new Specialized instead of Cervelo.

No chipmunks were harmed in this incident. Now, if he had chewed through my saddle or some bar tape it might have ended differently.

Wait ... it was still alive? It's hard to imagine how and why he wedged himself in there...

Yep, still alive.

I have no idea as to how or why. I can only guess that it had something to do with the sleek, sexy lines of the S3. Or maybe it was that internal cable routing that piqued his curiosity.

Wow. I'm surprised that he was still alive!

Guess he won't go near bikes again after this, no matter how much he wants to put the chain on the big ring.

Looks to me like he was just doing the nasty with your bike. Looks like he's into bondage.

I posted this thread on our twitter and facebook page, it is too funny to ignore.

Now how long before another site takes this picture and makes it an actual news story?

That marmot's got a lot of balls trying to get between your bike and you.

Ironman prize money
In the wake of the infamous 7th place prize money bonus at IMLP, where do you stand on Ironman's prize money? Is Ironman a penny pincher? Is the lack of a pro outcry the pros' own fault? Or is there no problem and the money is correct now?
Ironman should up prize money
Pros at fault for their timidity
The money is appropriate now
