Ha! I was thinking of doing a poll similar to this last night! Probably the Sky Pinarello narrowly edging out the Astana S-Works.

Bit of a fan of the Orbea Orca’s

HTC’s Specialized is my fav looking bike this year.


i’m not a huge fan of the look of the modern merckx bikes, but in the quickstep colours they look fantastic.

seems a bit strange that there’s no scott bikes in the pro peloton this year.

I like Gilbert’s custom painted Canyon:

^^ next year with greenedge if they race, they will be back

All i can focus on is the magnitude of the slammage. Some of those positions are wild.

HTC-Highroad S-WORKS is an ugly bike, but it has the best colour scheme. edit: Or is that colourway?!? :wink:

I vote the Garmin Cervelo as the ugliest. ducks for cover

Farrrrk yeahh!!! I sell Cervelo’s and Treks & cant beleive it when people pay $7k+
for an ugly duckling like that over a Trek!

Thor’s S3 looks better then the s5’s…

I love the Radioshack colour scheme & Movistar Pinarello & Liquigas go all right.

Voecklers yellow Colnago looks good too.

There is a good story on it here.
Tour De France Tech: Thomas Voeckler’s Colnago C59 | Cyclingnews.com
Painted and delivered in a day!

Vote 1 for the Lapierre TT bikes


Def my Fav

This is my fav… add some green and we have rasta bike “WE BE SMOKIN’ ALL THE WAY TO PARIS”

I think this looks great but needed different seat and bar tape. Probably black.

I’d never heard of LaPierre before the tour.

Cav’s S-Works Venge is my choice… great colours and either they have the best tech in them, or the best marketing. I think both.
HTC can ride the venge or the SL3, I suppose the other specialized teams have that choice too. In second place for me is the Cervelo R5(ca)

I like the Canyons look, but the branding is OTT and I know nothing about their tech. I also know nothing about the tech of Willier. Trek are major meh. BMC’s look over designed to me.

I’ll never buy another crackenfail. I don’t care how far they’ve come in 13 years.

And the Giant is probably the best value.

In a nutshell, I’d ride any and all of them happily if I was given it for free!

very nice
