Jens Voigt Spotted on Old Yeller?

It's been pointed out to me that Jens "Shut Up Legs" Voigt was photographed on a loaner bike after crashing on Stage 16 of TDF. The loaner bike bears a remarkable resemblance to my road bike known as Old Yeller.

You be the judge.

Something doesn't quite look right. Yeah, someone photo-shopped Jens to make it appear that he's on Old Yeller.


  1. Jens Voigt must be about my size then - because that's about how ridiculous I'd look on one of your tiny little bikes.

  2. Yes, but which tiny bike are you referring to?
    1) The original Old Yeller was a 56 cm.
    2) The new original Old Yeller (cross bike) is a 51.
    3) The newer original Madone Old Yeller was a 54.
    4) #3 has since been replaced with that black Madone. It's also a 54. Let's call this one the "newest original Madone not-yellow old Yeller"

  3. Don't them Madones come with a custom paint job? What's up with that, Brady?

  4. Even Jens Voight* is hairier than you are even after he's shaved down.

    Not everyone can be as hirsutely** handsome*** as me.

    If Brady ever opens a restaurant or bike shop, please hand Old Yeller from the ceiling.

    *Jens Voigt is so tough that when he and Lance compared their respective "balls", Jens won 5-1
    **on my legs, back & upper arms, not scalp.
    *** my best two qualities are my humility and modesty.

  5. Couldn't stop laughing after seeing that second photo.
