Thought it would have had Campag, not Dura Ace. Nice looking bike though. He seems to like the Lightweights. !!!

Mario Cipollini could have at least worked out a bit before showing like that

I have to admit that it looks great!
As sexy and muscled as the first RB100 but with a less aggresive drop. Well done Cipo. :thumbup:

Awesome for looks. Though i wonder what difference it'll be between this and NK1?
It's expected to be available around September i read somewhere.

Damn, he looks like the hulk. You have to respect a cyclist that doesn't get fat after retirement.

Cipollini bikes do look aero but are they really? Have they been designed with the use of an aerotunel or do the just use aero designs for styling? Always wondered...whatever the case may be, they look bloody amazing!!! :up:

No, these frames are not really aero (like a Madone, an S5, etc. HOWEVER... you can get a very low position on them (due to their short headtubes) so the frame-rider system can be more aero than most.

Getting low + having a proper aero road frame are not mutually exclusive. You can have both.

RB1000 has (or had?) a shorter headtube than the bikes you just showed.

A shorter headtube doesn't always mean a better/more agressive position :noidea:

Not always but usually it does. That's the main advantage of a short headtube. It enables to get an aggresive-aero position.
