Pinarello has launched their new tri bike, the Bolide TR+, with tri-specific storage and disc brakes. Cam Wurf has championed the Bolide over the past couple years, and has aspirations to make it onto the Kona podium this year. His rig is definitely interesting, although with the recent proliferation of disc brake rigs, the Bolide TR+ doesn't appear to be unique in the space or offer any significant draw over some similar competing rigs. Wurf has a little tilt on his bars, which appear to be achieved with a wedge under the extension clamp. And there is something strapped to the base bar, no idea what that is (toolkit?), but I imagine it will disappear before race day.
