interesting to see that it is alum alloy and not the carbon "BH" that we see..... kinda a step backwards eh?

These were old school intergrated BB/cranks made of steel released maybe 5 to 8 years ago. I have not seen much on them since, here is what google gave me:

I'd bet some money that someone in Spain is knocking off the Sweet Wings cranks. As for the alloy frame, could it be maybe a super light mountain stage one-off?

The brake looks more like AX Lightness than Zero Gravity Brakes. But i think the bike is pretty awesome and the team is stronger then ever. I hope Heras will do good in the GC in the Tour de France.

I am almost certain that is a show bike from at least a few years ago. You wont see anyone riding it. The Liberty team presentation took place in a sort of bike museum, hence the old show bike.

Brakes look like the ax lightness. Cranks are Sweetwings from sweetparts, Theyve been out of business for at least 5 years now.

My question is does anyone recognize the front derailleur? Doesnt really look like a campy to me, but the pic is small.

Most of those parts look sketchy and sacrificial...

More like a hardcore project Cat-1 bike than a Pro bike.

But what do I know.... I just know those cranks look shite, and that a Ti cassette is ridiculously project-looking.

Pez just did an article on the Presentation

look at one of the captions - "Joseba Beloki and his new ride – looking for a substantial return after the last 2 seasons.".... only the bicycle is clearly labeled... Giant.

I wonder if the caption writers and author of the article are the same individual...

cuz then it continues

"...ranging from the bike Bahamontes used to win the Tour de France in 1959 to the BH that Roberto Heras used in 2004 to win the Vuelta a España. Speaking of the BH, it’s one sweet bike that I’d like to get my hands on for a while."

Kinda... uh
