I will assume you can thank 3:1 for that funky seat post although I would imagine it still gets the job done properly.

I was wondering the same thing, does anyone have any more info on it?
Why was he using a different bike for the TTT?

RAI interviewed Liquigas's DS by asking more info but he just said that it was a project which started 2 years and a half ago (bullshit?).

It looks like a Scott Plasma and Lapierre FDJ TT mashed together with a Trek Speed Concept fork and kinks in the seat stays like the Specialized Shiv. I like that seat post, though.

As per the previous post, it's too Scott Plasma 3, Specialized Shiv'ish to ignore... I like either or but definitely not something that resembles what looks like the product of both after a night of debauchery without protection... :smartass:

Cannondale had been getting some solid results w/ their Slice Carbon in both cycling and in the Triathalon world so why mess with the design and make make drastic changes?

Because compared to the state of the art (Speed Concept, etc..) the Old Slice looks like a brick. Why would someone invest in a slice when there is better technology out there. You can keep the old Slice for a price point bike, but to play in the high end they needed to do this.

I would love to see Cannondale do a road version of this frame, with the hidden brakes and aero tricks, maybe not as thick/wide tubes, but the same general shapes.

That reminds me of a Windsurfer Sail, If they can keep the flow from becoming turbulent between the downtube and the seattube (install very big water bottles) that frame could act like a sail, could be very fast in certain conditions.

I prefer the more traditional Wilier twinfoil

That Cannondale may be fast but it's butt ugly!! Sorry..I have a Caad 9 and a big fan of the Company, but that is not a sexy bike...maybe it will grow on me but I doubt it.
