Yes, you are probably right about that. Hadn't noticed it was "zakeen" who posted this insider info.
"zakeen" is the Pro Tour rider Adam Hansen. He rode the Tour de France this year for Team HTC-Columbia. But unfortunately he had to abandon already after stage 1 due to a crash that caused him a fractured collarbone. (How's the progress with your injury zakeen?)
So zakeen/Adam Hansen is probably better informed about future pro tour equipment than any other WW forum member.
AFAIK he's the only Tour de France rider who posts on this forum.

2600 for complete bike (if true) is pretty damn reasonable.

Now....they just need to get shipping to Australia sorted!

What say you Adam, could you have a word to Matty Lloyd next time you see him round and ask on behalf of all us Aussies missing out?

These bikes are meant to be good and the team should be using them a lot next year. I think its great this company is doing something like this, feels like the frames are getting so light they need other area's to focus on to maintain competitiveness in the market. We like that :lol:

Injuries are getting better, Collarbone is not so bad thou. The fractured sternum was the worse then the 1st rib. The Fracture in the collarbone is only where it meets the sternum.

... that and no team in this year's TdF was riding Principia.
... and those are clearly not TdF style numbers.
