Cavendish's bike

After his first field sprint in which he was out of the running, it seems Cavendish has switched from the new aero Scott project bike (very nice, IMHO) to his old beefed-up Addict. Result? Two consecutive dominant stage wins: nobody else even close.

His teammates seem to still be on the aero bike, however.

Is that the one that Craig Hummer said was ( and I am not kidding ) "lightweight and laterally stiff to help his sprinting" ........

I could not believe I heard that.
