Bike of the week

Clean lines but still modern, a bike of my liking, Storck Aernario:

It’s a bike I could have been building for me with a few exceptions. Like the composition:

It’s so clean:

And with a weight of 5,85kg it’s good too 🙂

Some bikes are just better looking than others. No matter much I hoped for Kessiakoff last years Tour but Vocklers Colnago C59 with Campagnolo Hyperon wheels was soo much better looking.

This year Astana got the parts to run over Voeckler and others. Campagnolo Super Record EPS and sad to say but Corima Viva MCC is really good looking:

Hard to beat but after last years Sram dominance Campagnolo have found some ground again and showing that you can’t forget the most classy brand. AG2R-La Mondiale rides with Campagnolo EPS too, and with new Fi’zi:k components topping it with Fulcrum wheels and frame matching blue:

The two best looking bikes in the top this year. But which one is best looking? (more not as good looking Pro team bikes here: Cyclingtips) But it happening things in the U.K. getting the drool coming. Europcar styled bikes but with more clear colour, more Boras and a new team. The women Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling Team:

Colnago C59 Team Edition frames, Campagnolo Super Record EPS (groupset of the year?), Campagnolo Bora Ultra Two, Deda stem, seatpost and handlebars (Alanera on the bike above) and Fi’zi:k seat, bar tape and shoes. And is it a new Alanera with classic bend?

I was hoping for Emma Johansson’s Orica-IAM to succeed this year and love to see Marianne Vos attack and win but Scott and Giant with Shimano can’t be compared to these Colnagos. Classy bike, classy kit and some really fast riders. Let’s hope for a big improvement in the broadcasting of womens road cycling this year. Hear a Wiggle Honda rider bang in some extra gears with a click, hear the swosch swisch from the Boras and see the smile on the rider attacking with such a nice Colnago. 

Until the dreams come true we can watch a video from their Team launch:
