Tous les vélos de contre-la-montre commencent à ressembler à la même chose. :wink:

Can't agree more. Bring back the Espada please.

The new 2 Techno II buckle Sidis (Sidi Wire Carbon?) advertised in the Oct 2012 issue of Peloton with accompanied by a picture of the Green version (think Pozzato was pictured with these earlier in the year).

Some European sites have pics up:

Hopefully these come in the Speedplay sole as well

The perforated white ones look superb! I know stretch is part of the fit of Sidi but hopefully it won't get any more pronounced....

The white Ordu looks really really nice.

I tried a Sidi Wire Carbon Vernice today. Absolutely love it. Best shoe I ever tried. Using Mavic Zxellium and got a pair of Sidi Ergo 3 Carbon earlier but have to change to Wire and Drako (mtb) for next year. Will post a couple of pictures on them tomorrow morning on my blog. Until then It looks like this: Image in size 42 :D

Pretty firm rumors: Rotor powercrank, new zipp models; probably disc brake and maybe an updated 202 (theyre a little heavy by todays standards), sram red hydraulic.

What I'd like to see:

2013 force. For all the fanfare of the new red, force would benefit from every improvement just the same. Would be nice to see, but sram is big on sea otter or that time for road releases.

New garmin headunit. Nothing majorly wrong with the 500/800 but there is always room for improvement.

New saddle shape from fizik. Something closer to a scratch. Shapely, but longer then the aliante.
