Does anybody know if Ridley actually plans to sell bikes sporting the paint scheme used by the Lotto-Belisol team this year?

They look fantastic.

I have enjoyed the combination of their "retro" jerseys and frame paint schemes this year.

Myself, I've got several "modern" mostly black carbon (clear coat over weave) bikes (yep...Tommasini's) yet this "old school" design gets me the most compliments......by young and old. My take on it is there are tooooo many flat black and white Felts, Cervelo's, etc. and it's becoming evident to some that it's a boring scene out there......

I like that Tommasini...

Thanks for the link to Glory Cycles. Very tempting. I also vey much like the Flandrien paint sheme that Ridley had a few years back. Same deal: simple and gorgeous.
