All the media of the gold Pinarello of Carapaz has this weird filter on it, it should look more like this without those awful instafilters

Tricolor top-bottom bands in the colors of the Ecuadorian flag, except the yellow is replaced with matte/semi-gloss “pale gold” aka Crayola Gold with some metallic flake.

The 'gold' TT bike of Roglic looks better, but also not quite correct

interesting, at least to me, is the difference in profile of the front fork nose cone between the Cervelo TT bike and the S5 - the S5 is much more blunt, especially down near the bottom of the head tube. Presumably so that it has a wider stall angle, in light of the generally lower speed at which it will be ridden.

Now that SRAM has purchased Time Pedals, when do the SRAM sponsored teams start getting equipped with them, I wonder?

Inverted colors would have been awesome. Gold frame, black forks. Now its a little too close to their standard scheme in my opinion.

I was thinking more of Trek-Segafredo and Movistar. I wonder if they will be on Time pedals in 2022.

I must say that even though they obviously have taken a lot of artistic freedom with that it's still a lot better then what UAE etc. would do.

Why does it seems like he has some worn down blue coating on his fork's stanchions?
