Cool but Wilier can do much better than that.

Somebody photoshop the ugly wheels and saddle out so I can see what it could look like. It might not be that bad.

Yes please also get rid of the aero handle bar/stem combo, it looks awful!

Its being ridden by Pozzato http://road.cc/content/tech-news/189242 ... e-and-fuji

I have a Cento Uno-suspect the post is an effort to reduce the rear harshness of the Uno, which transmits big hits thru the massive post pretty much undamped.

That is one heck of a Photoshop edit, it looks real!

Handlebar looks like a canyon clone, with madone 9 di2 access port.

Looks more like an update than a brand new bike... New integrated handlebars, the Di2 access port, etc., but why in the world would you go through all that and leave the brakes where they are...

Actually, moving the brakes somewhere has its disadvantages too - from mechanics perspective.
Depends on what you want - I prefer this way to go.

Integrated brakes doesn't have to be that complicated... yes, it takes an extra few minutes to set up, but after that, it works perfect. I have integrated brakes on my BMC TM01 and I probably spend 15 minutes setting them up initially, but haven't done anything to them since (about 2 years). I would think if you're going to make an aero road bike, you would look at all aspects of it (incl brakes), not just some of the things to improve aerodynamics....

The Cervelo S2/S3/S5 and Canyon Aeroad doesn't seem to suffer much from traditional brake placement.

personally I like as few special parts as possible. I like to be able to decide the components on my bike.

Wilier is set to release a new aero bike, supposedly under a new name (which escapes me at the moment). I've seen renderings of it floating around and this definitely appears to be it. Should be released at the fall trade shows along with a wilier gravel bike and some cool mountain bike stuff.
