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.

I am also the person behind Gaulzetti Cicili
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..
