Nice article, TP. I have a real love/hate relationship with reading about professional cyclists' power data!

It's always the efforts after 4-5 hrs that blow me away, rightful have to be taken in context.

So are the shoes Frank Schleak is rocking rebranded specalized s-works shoes?

I don't own a pair, nor seen any in detail in real life. But no doubt someone that does would be able to tell pretty quickly.

I seriously think UCI needs to implement a "no see-through jersey" rule; this is getting ridiculous...


yeah man, and a bright camera flash set off close to the body will always make it look worse than it actually is

They're not rebranded S-Works shoes - they do look very similar though, as does the DMT Vega.

If it keeps them cool and helps reduce the effects of extreme temperature I see no issue.

It's bike racing, not a fashion parade.


Actually it is advertising, which makes the see-through jersey something that will probably fade away soon enough. A sponsor will complain, a clothing company will claim some new material that works just as well without being see-through, and the rest will just be people looking back at the pics and laughing.

Think that might be the new Bontrager "prototype" shoe that was mentioned previously. It looks like a cross between the Sworks and the Vega in that it has the bottom strap like the Sworks but the BOA dials like the Vega. The dials are distinctly unlike the Specialized one's which have a large amount of grippy knob like surface around them with a clear plastic type center to them.

Also, the Sworks wires seem to run more diagonal across the shoe vs. these which are more straight across.

Looks like he is using a smaller stem, less drop but with his levers lower

Head tube on Felt at least 2 cm shorter, and top tube slopes down to seat stays. Vertically, the Felt is a smaller frame.

Seems it's working, 1 for 1.

Cyclingnews article casually mentioned compound leg fracture for Visconti, yikes :-(
