    Are they going to require the guys with discs to yell "braking" so that those with lesser machines aren't rear-ending our superiors?

    Left, right, front, back.

    What Ernesto Colnago said about frame testing, "The UCI has to test every model of our frames, they take frames and they ask for 5,000 Swiss francs. Europcar uses M10 and C59, they have to test both of those and ask for 10,000 Swiss francs."

    Only production frames get tested.

    How many folks walking into a bike shop have the slightest idea of who the UCI is and what that little CHF5,000 sticker means?

    Maybe 1 in 50, at best?

    I don't get the hostility. The UCI licenses the racers. The UCI sanctions events that promoters put on. The USAC has rules about clothing, ability, courses, and how clubs function. Why is it unthinkable that the governing body in charge culls whats out there and places boundaries around what can and can't be used in race? They have had these rules all along. Having a sticker is a way for the commissars to acknowledge, on sight, if a product is within guidelines. It's a lot easier than measuring every single part or frame. We pay once for a sticker and we're good. On the other hand, we pay a license every year no matter how many times we race. And we pay a fee twice a weekend if we do race full time. I'm not buying the hate aimed at the UCI on this one. Think of what might show up on a start line if no rules existed atmo.

    Well even we re-enactors have rules from the ACP.

    I agree that there definitely should be rules, but what I'm wondering is what bikes AREN'T able to be raced? I mean within reason of course. Are there any new bikes being sold with [within the range of] normal geometry that the UCI should not allow in an event? It just seems nanny-ish to me

    "All models of frames and forks produced after 1st January 2011 must sport this label in order to be used in road, track and cyclo-cross events on the UCI calendar," the Swiss-based organization said in a statement Thursday."

    Why?

    See (read) the rule book and you'll know where the hash marks are. Then you will know when bicycles and positions are outside of them.
