90% of the couriers you see aren't couriers.

Nothing to do with the frame materials...it's the whole cut down flat bars thing, cards in the wheels...etc

I'm ashamed to say I'd actually ride something like that Pinarello during my brief stint as a bike courier in the city.

That bike seems to be incredibly aero. Much much much less frontal area than any other TT specific bike :mrgreen:

Handlebar angle and hood placement is a little wonky... but the main thing is that top tube into stem look. I would actually like to have one tho! :D
