Interestingly only one size seems to be UCI approved 550, Wiggins' sized.

how do they get away with putting faring's over the brakes?

Yes, that's strange to me, too. :noidea:

But that is the first rococo designed TT bike on the market. And that's not a good thing... Yuk.

Looks pretty good, that rear brake fairing is kind of wonky. Kind of looks like a speed concept and a shiv made a baby!

edit- Oh crap didnt see the other thread, could a mod please delete this one?

As far as the fairings go, you make it a small but essential part of the system; thats how the Trek SC 9 front brake is.

But more to the point, this looks aerodynamically better than the graal; more side area, lowered downtube, etc...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this.
Perhaps Pinarello was inspired by Wieskirche?

On that note, I would like to see a paint scheme that is truly Bavarian Rococo, Wieskirche-like. Just because it would be fitting.


Anyway, it should perform "aero" and inevitably Pinarello lovers or critics will point at Wiggin's results as some verification/vindication for the shape, even though it is ultimately up to the rider and not the frame.

Big improvement to the graal for but yes those top tube radii are silly looking, too big!

UCI specifically allow brake fairings

1.3.024
The addition of a cover to a braking system, as shown in the image below, is authorised. The unit is considered to be integrated with the frame or fork.
The combination of the frame tube (or fork tube) + brake + cover must respect the 1:3 rule, as well as the minimum and maximum dimension rules and must be contained completely within the corresponding 8 cm box.

I gotta say it's one of the best looking TT bikes ever, imagine this with an all black DA9000 crank :)

Sure it's super different from the current crop of TT bikes. But in all fairness, really take a long and hard look at the P3, the longer you look, the uglier it gets... IMO.

All TT bikes are pretty much converging on the same shape.
