  • David Condon's Giant TCR Advanced - It's old, but it's still good to go.
  • David Condon's Giant TCR Advanced - David's name plate and the flag if Ireland.
  • David Condon's Giant TCR Advanced - water bottle kept in place by nothing more than a rubber band.
  • David Condon's Giant TCR Advanced - the lesser-used SMP saddles are a twist on the split-nose design.
  • David Condon's Giant TCR Advanced - Condon's rear hydration and flat kit could be consolidated a bit to keep things a little cleaner perhaps.
  • David Condon's Giant TCR Advanced - From the front, this is a deadly-sharp rig.
  • Erik Sven's Storck Aero 2 - This is what $10,000+ buys you.
  • Erik Sven's Storck Aero 2 - Storck's integrated front end is fairly clean and adjustable.
  • Erik Sven's Storck Aero 2 - Zipp Firecrests are saturating the tri world, and for good reason.
  • Erik Sven's Storck Aero 2 - Cable management could use a little work, especially with an aero brake like the Omega.
  • Erik Sven's Storck Aero 2 - The rear brake is a beautiful piece of minimalism built right into the seat stays.
  • Erik Sven's Storck Aero 2 - This rear end could be improved by moving the flat kit to a frame-mounted aero bottle and tucking the bottle cage right against the saddle.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - I'm a fan of stealth paint jobes, and this one certainly qualifies. Steil will be in Blue for next year, and riding an Omega brake to boot!
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - Kenny rode an Adamo TT saddle.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - SRAM RED Black completes the stealth look.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - Steil rides Osymmetric rings.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - An aero bottle below will hold a flat kit, and the standard cage holds course bottles.  Perfect.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - TorHans gets the BTA duties, and also holds Steil's computer.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - I definitely like Steil's trick of using skateboard grip tape on the shifters. I do the same thing on my Di2 shifter pods.
  • Kenny Steil's Quintana Roo CD 0.1 - Here's the pointy view of the rig.
  • Marie Protat's LOOK 596 - The 596 is getting long in the tooth, but it still gets the job done.
  • Marie Protat's LOOK 596 - These cables are an absolute mess. This calls for an Omega brake!
  • Marie Protat's LOOK 596 - LOOK's Zed crank is one of the coolest things the company has ever made - it weighs next to nothing, accepts compact or standard rings, but only works with LOOK's proprietary bottom brackets.
  • Marie Protat's LOOK 596 - Now that saddle has seen some miles.
  • Marie Protat's LOOK 596 - Flat repair is left up to a single shot of Vittoria Pittstop.
  • Marie Protat's LOOK 596 - Microshift components probably work fine, but I'd much prefer a system with an R2C type lever, if not Di2.
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - Easily the most well-loved bike on the course, this P2C has been decorated tip to tail.
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - The entire rig is Big Island themed.
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - The names on the bike are cancer victims known to the rider and his family.  He rides in their memory.
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - Accessories were taped on this bike everywhere. It wasn't the cleanest look, but it's what the rider likes.
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - No real estate went unused.
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - As you can see, there are cables and bits jutting out everywhere, but who am I to criticize such a devoted person?
  • Steve Kukta's Cervelo P2C - Obviously a machine that's been ridden quite a bit.
