Odd that almost every single DiData/BMC rider is riding outrageously long stems though,; why don't they make these public grrr. SO many bikes with shit 130mm max stems (available to public) these days.

He has a decent amount in season. Tends to run his winter bikes much more stacked though.

Mark's new bike and the enve disc hub.
one one photo it have front XTR rear Dura-Ace rotor, on other photo it have front ultegra rear Dura-Ace rotor
Yes its Mark Renshaw's bike not Cavs, it had the XTR rotor on it when he was hit by the car and there was no stock of DA rotors available to replace it when it was re built so it has an ultegra one went on it to get the setup done, they're training clincher wheels so it's not like it's a massive issue.

Does anyone think the Merida bikes will have an effect on Rohan Dennis' 2019 season / Cervélo for Dumoulin?

Not appreciably no, though I expect Rohan to keep using the Giro Aerohead in time trials.

Have Oakley finally said "Please stop wearing a frame no longer available to purchase / What the hell do we sponsor you for" to Geraint?

One of the few downsides to winning the Tour? I guess it was okay when he flew a little under the radar.

Its hard to say.... it might, it might not. Things will obviously change and it depends how close they can get his new setup to match his former set up. Most of the latest TT bikes have a lot of range of adjustment, but its not just the bike... its wheels, tires, helmet. It is simple to say that equipment doesn't matter and that these guys are machines capable to huge watts no matter what, but I think that at the top level every little thing counts when you're looking to squeeze out a 100% effort.

I guess G likes the full framed nature of his old Oakleys, so the Jawbreakers are the best option for him that Oakley can actually sell to his fans :D.

I believe that those changes are large enough to have an impact on their performance, but whether that impact will be of any significance remains to be seen when the season properly starts. January 3rd and can not wait any longer for proper racing to start again!!! :lol:

You guys are reading a lot into one photo of G. It could be a one off. He forgot or lost his current pair of glasses. He could be back in his trademark Oakleys tomorrow.
