definitely looks like a 21 spoke 2:1 rear wheel there. New large NDS flange with forged in cut outs looks nice.

The photographer missed getting a decent picture of the RD as well

I sure hope they won't go with the colour of the hubs for the new groupset. Reminds me of some of the most hideous groupsets ever: Ultegra SL and XTR 960
They should either go with plain black like Campagnolo and Red Black or even better, a clear anodised finish like 7700 and 7800

All I see is 12DS and 12NDS spokes.

A) I love(d) Ultegra SL.

B) Why not both options instead of either/or?

I think they should offer a silver option and a black option.

The nature of the course had several small loops, some of the riders who had been dropped rode up the Molenberg before the race and stopped to watch. Being a really nice day no one seemed in a rush to get back to Gent.

Even if you're dropped still need to a) get the kms in and b) need to get back to the bus/hotel/home.

I was just watching Het Nieuwsblad and at about 62km to go, Alex Dowsett of Sky was involved in the crash. As he was pulling his bike out of the mess, his crank looked different. The pic is really low quality since it's a grab from a low res video file, but you can see the new crank.

I looked it up and found it too. Interesting looking spider configuration. Looks stiff! Anyone else notice what looks like a decent bend in the arm? These might be very low profile, which is good!

3rd time trying to post!!

I rode it yesterday. It's nice, comfy. Best bit brakes, worst bit chainset / front mech looks ugly!

Brakes need a bit more work on the finishing IMO.

Also I am 99% sure that the BB has 8000 stamped on it, so the name is not 9000.
