    Is that Aria any different to the old one?

    That BMC looks really nice. Probably the first time I've seen a BMC and thought that...

    Not sure if this has been posted (I have looked) but 3T are introducing a new bike, the Strada Due

    I wonder if this 2x stuff will catch on

    Can't say I like any of them to be honest.

    The Aria and Venge are just updated versions I think

    the BMC looks good. the wilier is a slightly different layup compared to the cento 10 air, and can take discs or rim brakes.

    The BMC's mad storage unit/bottle cage arrangement is quite strange. I don't hate it. I like all the press pics for the SystemSix too, seemed much better looking than the all-black one they were testing with EF.

    Time-machine has waaay too many spacers under the stem, is this just a pricey "sportive" bike?
    Bianchi looks a bit old fashioned compared to the others.

    Well, if they will insist on using outdated braking technology on it... :wink:

    Yum ! I’d take that over the rest of them, it has a bit of class.

    This post is like a future vision of my work's bike parking area :p

    Also, and please excuse my mountain bikers ignorance here, but why do the seat stays never join the seat tube at the headtube junction on these types of bikes? Is it to keep the back end and overall wheelbase shorter?

    Do you mean top tube junction? I'd guess this stiffens up the rear triangle and, possibly, makes ride more compliant

    They're all quite similar aren't they. The dropped seat stays and triangular infill between seat stays and top tube is pretty much everywhere.
    I did this in 2012....

    Sorry, yes I did mean top tube junction.

    Stiffness makes sense ;)

    Strange question, but what saddle is that?

    That really is incredible how almost all the new frames have exact same rear dropout design. Well done you

    EF version of the SystemSix is very nice

    Not sure if this means Movistar will be on discs this tour, my Spanish is not great

    The Aria is their "budget" aero bike (the Oltre is their spendy one), so that's why it looks a bit dated.

    Is it just me or is the photographer a tw@t on at least half of these.

    Is the system six a replacement for the supersix and does this herald the end of sale of the century prices from Paul's and westbrooks?

    Judging by the size of that rear cassette my guess would be that ain't Valverde's bike...

    I didn't notice that at first but quite like it. No point designing an aero frame and then letting someone put non aero bottles on it that don't fit with the frame!

    The new 2019 Basso Diamante. The best bike release of the week IMO.

    Nothing wrong at all with releasing a bike that looks like it is supposed to be raced, rather than headed straight for a sportive
