Giant Rouleur Live 2021 Tech Gallery - Pinarello, Trek, Ceramic Speed, S-Works, BMC & more

Dive into a huge galley of shiny (and some muddy) bike tech

We're on our way back from Rouleur and, despite the lack of beer, we had a great time looking at some of the best cycling tech available. Here are some of our highlights.

BMC Masterpiece Rouleur13.jpg

BMC's Masterpiece is a stunning example of quality control. The frame comes out of the mould like this and it is raw perfection.

The logos are subtle and we learnt that only about 80 have been sold worldwide since the bike's launch roughly a year ago.

Lightweight wheels finish a no-expense-spared build.

Hope Track Rouleur4.jpg

This Hope track bike would be the ultimate hipster fixie. It's also very fast.

Moscon Roubaix Bike Rouleur3.jpg

Gianni Moscon's drivetrain is my idea of a nightmare.

Make your own jokes about it being as dirty as his mouth...

Carapaz Olympic Dogma F Rouleur8.jpg

His teammate Carapaz, meanwhile, has been busy with the polish.

Look at that paint fade too! Tidy.

Ceramic Speed R9200.jpg

Ceramic Speed has its OSPW systems ready to go if you've got your hands on the new Dura-Ace and you feel the need to spend more money.

Ribbe Ultra Rouleur10.jpg

Ribble's Ultra was on display in this stunning British Racing Green. Sparkles are optional.

Lizzie Deignan Trek Domane Paris Roubaix Rouleur5.jpg

One of the most interesting race bikes that we've seen this year is Lizzie Deignan's Roubaix-winning Trek.

The bike features a 1X SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset. The chain keeper is a just-in-case measure.

SRAM Blips sit on either side of the stem to make sifting easier on the cobbles.

And big tyres for a floaty ride.

S-Works Crux Rouleur2.jpg

This Specialized S-Works Crux featured a beautiful brushed aluminium-effect finish.

And we'll finish with this POC TT lid with the brilliant Palace design. It's quackers.

Ok, someone get us a beer.

Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
