hardly.

it doesnt look too different/looks like a development from the walser based tt frame that they have been offering for some time now. that was out long before the current generation of tt frames.

@jsinclair - haha you beat me to it. I was going to say almost the same thing.
Maybe that's a new model with the integrated front brake and different seat stays. I imagine the old seat stays probably fell afoul of the 3/1 rule on some of the Waslers?

Walser design circa late 90's or early 2000, IIRC. An evolution of design.

Yeah from memory, the white walser in the photo has the skinny bb and custom ultra low q-factor cranks.

Not sure whether this has been mentioned, but Alex Dowsett took his 3rd Brittish national TT title after a fall from his bike and getting rashed legs and hands. SHortly after father's day(Dowsett senior a race car driver and apparently JUnior's hero). Truly happy for this humble and friendly young fella. Brittain is super strong these days so Brittish champ is not easy feat. Not to mention he beat Wiggins in Stage 8 of the Giro.

BTW, is this the new TT rig he is riding? http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/britis ... tos/270218

No that's still the graal. If you look closely in the photos, you can see the top mounted rear brake.

Epic win by Johnny Hoogerland today! Very well deserved.

Yeah, gutsy ride from Dowsett. Not to take anything away from his Giro victory but Wiggo had mechanical issues and still nearly best him. Nonetheless, he's really stepped it up a notch this year, in the TTTs too, huge help to Movistar.

A lot of Movistar riders are having quite exceptional years.

I had a blast watching the Dutch and Belgian championships today. As an American, it is such a treat to get uninterrupted, live coverage of bike racing without having to pay for premium cable channels. I channel-surfed between races all day. My Dutch must be coming along because I was able to follow the commentary quite well too.

Incredible ride by Hoogerland, one of my favorite riders in the peloton. Devolder had a fantastic win as well.

Cavendish wins the British road champs, Stannard 2nd and Millar 3rd.

Turns out his sprint looks even faster in real life than on the telly :lol:

Anywhere to see videos of these champs.

Good for Hoogerland, would love to see the video. He fell off the radar after his famed crash, but good to see him rolling strong again.

Devolder has actually had a good season so its good to see him win the national title again. People seem to give him a lot of shit, but he rode like a tank in support of FC this spring.

Also, how is it Wiggo seems to have more TT mechanicals than all other riders combined?
