Astana Trek and team high road Giant look IMHO awesome!!!
I have noticed that Astana uses a bit darker blue Treks in Tour Down Under. Have you noticed???

I love Astana's TTX, the Team High Road Giant & the CSC outfit, but I don't like the other ones that much...

eg: the Caisse d'épargne... too much red! :shock:

Yeah, from what I've heard Astana is using old treks from last year, so they are discovery team colors

They're currently riding some "standard" Madones untill all of the Astana Madones are ready.

The mecanics are building them at the moment during the Team's training camp!

They're not here yet, because of the retard of painting with TREK...

But what about this Team High Road Giant "TCR Advanced SL Team"
I like the normal frame a lot more!

Aren't both the High Road bikes the same frame just different sizes? In the top pick the headtube gusset (for lack of a better word) kicks up at the end of the giant logo. Lighting playing tricks?

If only we had some inside link to High Road...

Would be so much better with a smaller head tube:

I guess there might be a reason why headtube is that big. :wink:

I think the smaller giant's look a lot better.

but its good design that Giant does because a larger rider will require a larger shaped tube design (be more stiff).

The bh looks better, it looks like a new design. the Seat post is the same size as the seat tube, as opposed to it being different sizes in past years.

Yeah sure, I know, but it doesn't look quite nice to me...
But I don't doubt about the quality of the frame...
