marginal gains innit. Also doesn't matter much about Pinarello, rules basically say any advertising has to be tiny. And it isn't like the track lot are riding on Pinas even though BC is also sponsored.

From what it looks like, that seems like the track bike but with a road specific bar, geometry, and road group supporting features.

We'll maybe see more of this bike.
Especially if Cav has a good wheel to follow in the last 200m...

And this will be the cranks he "will run" if he wins.

I like these bikes though, they look cool. If only I could afford/actually get hold of one.

Wow the bars look to be one piece with the stem and mount all in one. Some close up pictures would really be nice.

Is there not some rule that frames have to be approved by the UCI before thier use in competition?

They were approved by the UCI already because they are "available for sale to the general public"
Now, go to British Cycling and ask them how much it costs for a frame.
