Who ever is building these bikes for display, needs to build them without the ton of spacers under the stem. They look shit with them

Good god, I didn't think it could get any worse...

Ultra massive hydro shifters/brake levers is all it needed.

When you thought the Vias couldn't get any uglier.

Aero meets discs, they really did it... talk about an identity crisis. I'm aero! But wait, I have disc brakes, and they're not aero. Look away, I'm hideous... Still.

Amazing how so many like the tarmac but hate the venge. Totally valid sentiments though.

Get rid of the spacers and the gullwing bars and...I like it. :oops: :P

More than anything else I disliked the V-brakes on the original. Hydro solves the friction from tight cable routing and discs, whether or not they're necessary, are an improvement over V-brakes in my view.

Wonder what they've done with chainline/dropout width/chainstay length to make discs work.

.. want to know the weight.

The old one was like 8,1 kg, imagine the weight of the disc version.

If not for the hideous steering interface, it actually doesn't look that bad, especially in white/black.

Aero frame with disc brakes. Ok...
I am sure that they will 'prove' that this is actually even faster because with disc brakes you break later, maintain higher speeds for longer etc. etc. so you will end up gaining 2min over a 80km course.
