    Why does Cancellara’s bike have Tony Martin’s name on it?

    • James Huang

      Although his ‘Spartacus’ nickname is well known, his other one is ‘Tony Montana’.

        Oh. Thanks.

        • I got this wrong once too. I asked the team mechanic and he looked at me like I was from Mars.

            It’s a bit weird. Scarface was a great movie, almost entirely due to Pacino’s performance, but his Tony Montana character was a selfish, psychopathic and cruel piece of work. Not sure I’d want that as a nickname.

        I thought it was luigi ;-)

    Double seat tube hey? That’ll get tongues wagging.

    So… not about the new 2017 Star Trek?

    What size rings on the front? Looks pretty small.

    Much higher res photos on road.cc. It definitely looks like a grey elastomer insert between the headtube and headset cover, and you can almost make out the “ISOSPEED” label on it.

    I am so getting this bike :)

    It looks like an interesting design. Living in the UK my first thought seeing the split seat tube was that it would be a hassle to clean!
    On a separate note, what is the verdict by the UCI on these kind of prototype frames being used in competition? Looking at the UCI approved frame and fork list from 29/02, the only Trek approval for 2016 is the new Madone and the most recent approved version of the Domane is from 2013. Please may someone clarify when a frame is allowed to be raced and when it is not?

    I’m assuming “a way to boost the ride quality up front via some sort of mechanical device” is not referring to mechanical doping? :p

    Love that Fabo still runs DA mechanical. You can convince him to ride a bike with a pivoting seat tube AND head tube but to Di2 he says “no”.
