Obvious clash on the green and celeste but then the point of pro bikes is to promote the sponsors, not to make a design you or I'd want to ride.

Garmin-Sharp's bikes look the best, I think.

I quite like that Bianchi. Was also a fan of Liquigas ones

No, you get your hydraulic levers and brakes replaced with mechanical ones as per the recall plan

The velonews article says the same thing, i.e. if you read past the first paragraph.

interesting to note that the only solution to mollema's rubber alergy is going without hoods and a bit of cork tape.
maybe BTP should make him carbon hoods for 9070 or that far and near or hudz make him a hypoallergenic pair.
you cant buy fitness, but you can buy advantage.

In defense of Cav's "caloric reserves", maybe those reserves prove beneficial for temperature regulation this time of year. Check out how bundled up the spectator is.

Sram was a slow-responder to admitting their product was the problem.

Or maybe he's just wearing thick clothing. He's not at raceweight, perhaps, but 5 kg over raceweight, it's been pointed out by his manager, is no big deal. People are acting as if it's 10 or 15.

Regarding Mollemas allergy (surprisingly I have never heard about that, instead I heard he just preferred the slimmer feel without covers), shimano actually published this bit on their dealer site:
"Latex allergies are a serious condition that affects some cyclists. Latex allergy sufferers can be assured that Shimano ST lever hoods do not contain latex."
"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."
