Hincapie, Eisel (???) and some Bouygues Telecom rider were on carbon wheels...

Boonen was in good form today, Cancellara aand Ballan didn`t had a chance, Maaskant had a good ride too.

Impressive ride from Maaskant!! Considering he's almost a neo pro, at least at this level!! 12th at the Ronde and now 4th! Very talented guy.

Was it just me or did Boonen have a new Roubaix? The top/down and headtubes all seemed bigger than normal.

the Zerds in the rear fork is longer and has a curve en looks like the front of the frame has the same characteristics of the tarmac SL2

Apparently Maggie cracked both his rims on pave #18. (DNF)
High profile carbon rims I read. Anyone know which ones he was using?
But honestly he is a big guy and riding carbon rims when all others ride super strong alu wheels... Hincapie to.
I thought they were smarter than that.
Max Gravity, unfairly treated by gravity!

according to tech reports he was on 303 front and 404 rear. not too surprising as you said he is a big guy thats rather tough on his equipment.
