not as light as it could be.
An overweight overpriced tank.

Part of me hopes we see it during the Dauphine or the Tour...
While I agree that road debris may be an issue, for brake adjustments, from this image
I got the impression that there is an inline cable adjuster on the brake cable up front thus no need for the rider to hang onto the team car while mecahnic adjusts the brakes.
Good point. Although, opening the brake with a button a la campa or lever a la shimano is so much easier. Racers usually just flick the brake open after a wheel change or before a sprint etc.. It just doesn't seem practical or offer any benefits in road racing to me.

So unless there is another fork with conventional mounting and top clearance, does that make this a dura-ace only bike?

it is a shimano only brake bike. You can always run sram or campy other parts

As for the messy front end, maybe they will offer a brake which is designed specifically for this head tube/fork and is very aero.

Given that they have had to get the 5 and 6 newly certified as well I'd suggest they will be the models that take conventional brakes but have similar Kamm tube shapes
