"Garmin-Cervélo is like other teams that don't yet have sufficient stock of 11-speed Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 to justify switching over. However, an apparent shortage of 10-speed Dura-Ace parts has the team now using Ultegra Di2 instead for the time being."

Is that normal or has Shimano run into production problems?

After trying on the new Sportful race cut (was actually straight from a bunch the Saxo Bank team kit) our team will be getting some of this season, I'd certainly say that would do 90% of the function of a skinsuit without meaning you go without pockets. Very nice stuff.


Oh and yesterdays race data from Serge Pauwels

perks of the job, being able to have a peek at some Pro's data :mrgreen:

I can only say that I've had a bike with 9070 Di2 on order since December and delivery has slipped back to March due to groupset availability. It was a similar situation with Ultegra Di2 last year.

It makes sense that Shimano would shift the majority of production from DA 10spd to Ultegra 10spd & DA 11spd especially as they share some componentry.

It also makes sense for teams to use Ultegra Di2 in the interim as components are cheaper (~AU$1500 for a groupset), cabling is the same, it's almost as good and multishift is now an option.

I have ex Chipotle-First Solar team Castelli clothing, sanremo speedsuit, skinsuit, aero jerseys and so on. Aero jersey fits like a glove, but it is nowhere near as aerodynamic as a sanremo speedsuit or skinsuit for that matter.

^ How is the "aeroness" quantified?

When you are almost chewing your bars there are wrinkles here and there even if it is as tight fit as possible standing straight. Castelli skinsuit is shrinking you too much, excellent for time trials, but I would not use that in road races. Nalini skinsuit I used for past 2 years is much more forgiving. Nalini jerseys I have from ex pro team in 2005 is very unfitting, it is tight standing still, but wobbles a lot when chewing bars and arm pieces are too short.
No offtopic here, all pro team stuff we are talking here ;)

They have had some problems with the levers I heard last week.

Curved top tubes and seat stays = U.G.L.Y

Reminds me of a 1950's vintage bike

Very classy win by Geraint Thomas at the tdu.

Nice sprint to finish it off. Perfect leadout from a couple of shacks.

Agreed. Winning frames in that bunch = Trek, Cannondale, Scott. Scott wins on the paint tie-breaker. Factoring components instead of paint and Cannondale wins.

All have restrained down-tubes, just the right amount of aerodynamics versus weight, and good geometry.
