I've always liked those reacto. I hope we'll see more BMC time machine road in 2013 too.
I am hopelessly out of touch. My fave pro bike of the last 5 years remains;
Those melt-y Pinarellos are either an acquired taste, or...you like 'em or you don't, or...a classic case of Beauty is as Beauty does.
Egads. Looks like a Cannondale TT bike/Kestrel lovechild.
What's up with the Lampre sticker?
Not out of touch at all. That Koga looks like a bike that many of us would actually buy. I see a pretty smart build with good taste. Selle Italia does need to UPS-red label a black saddle to that rider immediately.
Brutal. Nice BMC ripoff on the seatstay/ST area. I feel a little Orbea Orca in there too. Merida needs to keep their eyes on their own paper.
Lampre has had some lousy color schemes lately with the Merida being the worst. This is what Lampre bikes should look like. I am not ashamed of this opinion. I would ride this bike. The black and neon yellow color scheme looks like the team was sponsored by Cadel Evan's shoes.
I'm actually looking forward to seeing the Ag2r-La Mondiale Focus bikes w/ Campy and the new Fizik bits. Crazy, I know.
I showed that merida warp photo to my Peg respo and it is now officially even more smug and self-assured than it already was.
I agree with vandebergen, the Ag2r- La Mondiale bikes are the best looking of the peloton this year..
