I can't quite make out the logos.
Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!

They have some kinks to work out with the exact shading of the colors, especially the lavender front wheel.
US Patent Exploding Cyclist said:I have no proof but I think the "lavender" color may be because that is a reflective feature on the rim. I know HED, on some of their wheels, has a reflective silver logo; can't find a picture where it looks purple though.
ImmaculateKadence said:I wonder....will Lance ride this or will he have his special bikes and helmets this season? That always bothered me. He never really looked part of the team.

I want to hear opinions on the paint scheme on the Shack team Madones. Not a bad looking bike, considering Trek usually rank style last on their list of priorities. But this paint scheme gives me a headache. Too busy, too many colours, not that they go well together, and what's with that RS symbology? Reminds me of the disastrous yellow symbol-laden bike that Armstrong rode into Paris in 2005. My bike would look like that if I gave my 3 yr old a magic marker. I expect Tom Cruise to ride this to scientology meetings.
Compare this to the Sky bike, very simple and sharp looking. Or is this yet another style trend that I have missed? I am pretty square.
Edit: should clarify - I know there has been some discussion about this bike on the RS video thread, but didn't want to ask a specific question that could take that one so far off topic.

pedaling squares said:That is a beauty, nicely understated. But let's be honest dim, Sky could roll off the start on old penny farthings and you would still be in full salute!
that is the sound of the price of all the white handelbar tape in stock in the UK hitting the floor
at least it will camouflage Wiggins' socks, hopefully he will have the wedge to buy some ankle socks now
