definitely impressive. I'd say Image to the Giant engineers!
Nice to see the AX brake is the same as the tektro! They really wanted to pack this bike with loads of carbon!

What are the cables made of?

This is some HOT news about MAVIC 2005 :shock:
They going to have new wheelset for 2005 called COSMIC CARBON LITE and ECLIPSE.
They not allow me to take any pics :x Because those wheel will be present to media on JUNE.
Cosmic carbon lite is a lighter version of the recent one and Eclipse is an semi-aero profile rim probably lighter than Ksyrium

NICE! This is the most exciting post I've seen in a looooog time!

Awsome pics, esp. of the TCR Advance. Have to say I'm dissapointed in it's looks though, very bland. Normal TCR looks much nicer.

And new Mavic wheels! Maybe the post with the other Mavic wheels that are all carbon are the new Cosmic lites, are they all carbon? Also what else do you know about the eclipse wheelset? Carbon, weight, rime depth?

Very nice post. Keep use updated. :up:

New carbon tube set from columbus
I call it "jigsaw" tube set because you can put all tube together with a kind of mechanical lock.
There are 5 pieces for one frame.
1.seat tube
2. V-foil top and down tube
3.Monoblock headtube
4. seatstay set
5.chainstay

very interesting!

Mavic dont give me any detail about those wheel set.They still have aluminum braking surface and Its pretty light for Eclipse with aluminum rim around 30mm depth
