Is it just me or are these shorts really short? (looks like hes wearing legwarmers cut down to make his shorts longer.

The 2013 Cervelos looked terrible in the initial pictures, but if you see them in person they actually look quite nice. I LOVE the look of the new R5, a nice matte black with some red highlights.


I saw them in person, and think they're too logotensive.

That works fine for a pro cyclist's bike, which is designed to be a rolling ad, but not what I want to ride.

The middle of the three saddles doesn't look like a chicane but like the one Cavendish has been on. One of their mtb ones I think? Interesting Boonens chicane vs the one all the way to the left, the one all the way to the left having the red FACT logo on the saddle rails from the s-works model and not on Boonens. A lot of those guys seem to be rocking the chicane lately though.


They are all Chicanes.

They are all the Chicane Pro saddles but with a black/white color instead of the white/black ones available.

I still don't think that middle one is a chicane - it looks to flat on the bottom edge of the saddle like cavendishes does in their promo photos.

looks like he's pulled up his shorts and knee warmers.

Too bab about K-B-K (again). Thank goodness for Oostmalle! How 'bout that Sven's bike-handelling skills!

I was there. Conditions off the main roads were simply unsafe. There was a valiant attempt to salvage the race by creating a 16km circuit and running 10 laps. But it simply wasn't possible. Most of the big teams seemed unfazed. But the smaller continental teams really took it hard... it was a huge expense for them, and one of their bigger opportunities to be missed. But safety was the order of the day. Having been out there both in my car and on the bike I can honestly say it was the right call... even if a bit disappointing.

I guess it would be too hard to reschedule it to mid week as well :(

Its the angle. It is a Chicane. It is definitely not a Romin and Speci riders only ride production saddles. It is not a Toupe nor a Phenom so that doesn't leave a whole lot left.
