Whatever. It's all about the broke back Cento1SR top tube. :lol:

Paint any frame Celeste and you have a winner. :up:

To a more serious matter: Any proper pics of that TdU podium hostess this year?

I quite like the look of the spec crank with campagnolo chainrings on the Astana bikes. Imho it looks much better than the cranksets with more voluminous spiders.

I'll refrain from a choice because the photography wasn't balanced. While I appreciate CyclingTips putting together that post on their blogsite, I'll wait for RIDE magazine's photo-studio shoot of the pro peloton bikes.

The CT link had a bunch of bikes that were photographed backlit by the sun or heavily shadowed. Meanwhile some were properly oriented for lighting (such as Astana). This does not really help in judging a paint scheme if the highlights are covered in a shadow or if it is backlit.

My 2 cents on it.

Interesting that (if I counted correctly) 13 out of the 16 bikes are using Electronic shifting.

BMC did it better IMHO, there's no cable dangling in the wind.

Center pull brakes making a comeback?

Nice sprint to finish it off. Perfect leadout from a couple of shacks.

Agree, with that finish at TDU I'd expect he has an eye on Milan San Remo

Saxo-Tinkoff seems to have switched from Speedpay to Look.

And as a result Contador gets dropped on the first serious hill.

Contador was on Look before Speedplay.

Won a Tour on Look too.

He'll be fine.

I'm searching for a good shot of Goss's TDU bike. It's not team colours/blacked out. Possibly something new (probably not though).
