Cervelo introduced NEW product, they need to show it to the customers. Be sure Ryder is ridding it ONLY because of marketing, not because he finds it better than Rca. You ll see during season, they will come back to R5s and Rcas. :wink:

Given Garmin ddidn't mind, much less force, riders like Martin to at least pretend they're using the Vector pedals...

I'd say riders simply made the choice themselves.

As we all know Vermac's team clothing are made by Giordana and Giordana's owner put some pics of herself and Tony Martin on her FB by talking of how many trips she has done to Belgium to develop their skinsuit.

Looks like some weird attempt to offset the pedal from the pedal spindle, the spindle actually looks pretty far forward in relation to the peddle platform.

rear body part (black plastic and springs) looks like coming directly from a Shimano PD-R540

Always loved Dirty's gold Sidis. What, BMC didn't have any gold bartape laying around?

My first thought is that it is to dynamically vary the crank arm length; the pedal spindle orbits the "normal" spindle location in the crank arm.
