First pics of Specialized's new time trial bike...

Nice to see that the pros get excited by the prospect of a new bike. Here's Fabian Cancellara taking some pics of the latest Specialized Time Trial bike which UCI commissaires permitting he'll be riding in the Tour de France.

The pics come courtesy of SRAM's Road Diaries, the Schleck brothers were mightily impressed too. However if the head tube is as it appears in the pictures you've got to wonder whether the UCI will allow it, questions about the aspect ratio aside it also looks suspiciously like a fairing. On the other hand given there are no close ups it could also be some sort of cover…

 

 

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
