    I've heard the dogmas are one of the heaviest bikes in the pro-peloton.

    Its the right colours at least. Black with a bit of red.

    Kinda looks like the exisitng model.
    It's a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you're tired. You quit when the gorilla is tired.

    I've never really been into those wavy lines in the fork and seat stays, so it just looks like a Chinarello to me.

    I can appreciate that other people obviously do though, so take my Chinarello comment with a grain of salt.

    I don't like the handlebars, otherwise I'd take one!

    Not bad. No electronic silliness at least. But Shimano. Argh.

    These wheels look effing horrible, like they are inflatable or something.

    WTF is the string hanging off the battery pack all about?

    Bottom picture looks nice, 2nd from the top looks terrible (not helped by the wheels and the extreme saddle / bar drop) and top one I'm not sure about.

    No idea why they are all putting battery packs on the dirtiest place on a bike.

    Really? That is what makes these bikes and pros bikes stand out. Regular riders will have the handlebars par or even higher than the saddle. As easy way to improve a bikes looks is to take the bars as low as possible by cutting the steerer tube.

    I think it just highlights the curved top tube in this instance which is what I'm not too keen on. I don't think many regular riders have the bars level or higher than the saddle though, that's more of a noob thing - buy a road bike for the aerodynamic benefits then ride with a load of spacers, flipped stem etc. I'm not sure what drop I have but must be around 100 - 150mm, these photos have about 300mm or more.

    I think that is electronic (control module under stem) though it looks like they forgot to fit a front mech and battery pack

    D'oh! You're right, but I think there is a front mech there too, braze-on fitting. Must have the battery in the seat tube. Are those Shimano brakes?

    To keep the centre of gravity as low as possible.

    Pro team bikes don't tend to stay dirty for long.

    I like it, god knows why it's called a think 2 tho?
    Helmand Province is such a nice place.....

    I like it too btw - Everytime I can't walk past the Ui2 bike in the shop near work i can't help myself but press the front shifter becasue the zzzzzzzzp noise makes me feel kinda funny! (like when we used to climb the rope in Gym class)
