Does anyone know what track bike Cavendish and Keisse are riding?

Sorry. I know there are better pictures of it, but I'm at work so really shouldn't be on here and don't have time to dig them up.

No Specialized?
The big S makes everything except track bikes?

With the bump on the head tube and the way the drop outs look I would agree with the dolan. Kinda surprised big S did not do a shiv track or venge track frame. Trek did it for Jens, I am sure S could of done it.

The trek made for Vogt was just a speed concept with changed dropouts to allow for the fixed wheel and alter the axle width wasn't it? The bb height etc was unchanged as they knew jens wasn't riding on the banking.
Just changing the dropouts on a shiv or venge wouldn't be sensible as keisse and cav will be riding a steeper track and using the banking regularly.
It does look a lot like the dolan and also the merckx branded frame that the topsport guys are riding looks the same (same head tube shape and merckx don't seem to have a carbon track frame in their line up either)

I think it's safe to say the Jen hour record was accorded substantially more publicity potential than a 6-day race, Gent or otherwise.

Cav's bike looks considerably more aero than the winners' bikes.
