Time to get the ball rolling for 2018 I think...

    But... but...

    ...everything's made of atoms, isn't it? I mean, I'm not a scientist or anything
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    Jesus wept, got himself together, dried his eyes and then got hit by a bus ...

    It's stil 2017 and that bike will be ridden by the end of this week ... literally halfway through this year, not next ...

    Love the paint. Seatpost will likely be a compliance/comfort feature.

    I don't get the CVNDSH green signature colour thing - he won the green jersey once, since when Sagan has dominated in an unprecedented manner. OK, he was robbed a couple of times (IMO) but seems strange to market yourself around an objective you've fallen short in (relatively speaking - for a 30 time stage winner, one green jersey is a poor return).

    everything from "V" forwards is cool. Not so backwards.

    May be he just likes the colour...

    I've said this in the past also ... Might as well write BDNCK on the top tube for all it matters ... I get the impression he was trying to do for green what LA did for yellow and now, despite his lack of success in winning the green jersey, he is stuck with it ...

    I know, silly Cervelo marketing blurb said something about "new atomic F1 technology"

    That Cervelo is not a good looking bike.

    Trek Emonda. I don't think it looks much but it's 665g! 640g with rim brakes.

    Presumably that is without forks which could easily double it. Still very impressive but it must be quite flighty

    Just over 300g for the forks. 640g forks would be very heavy.

    I think my synapse forks were 800+ and that was just a couple of years ago.

    LA PLANCHE DES BELLES FILLES, France (CT) – It had been spotted at the Critérium du Dauphiné, but on stage 5 of the Tour de France, Fabio Aru (Astana) shot across the finish line to win aboard a custom-painted version of Argon 18’s latest pure race bike, the Gallium Pro.

    Agreed, but funnily enough I thought it looked a bit rubbish 'in action' especially paired with Aru's kit. You couldn't tell the make either and the yellow strip on the head tube looks like a bit of electrical tape covering up the name.

    This might be what we're all riding when we're old. Very clean clean looking electric bike that supposed to be around 12kg. Will also be avaialbel as a cyclo cross and adventure bike.

    In all other respects, the PROJECT Y offers the same ride characteristics as a standard racing bike. There is no pedal resistance. At less than 12 kg, the bike is really light and fast. Wherever weight becomes an issue (e.g. going uphill), the drive kicks in and assists you with up to 400 watts of additional power. The assistance feels completely natural at 25 km/h and you get the very best out of your ride. The future of racing bikes offers maximum performance in every situation

    Want. Right now. Not when I'm old.
