Scott Leaks Prototype Pics of New Plasma TT Bicycle

 

Apparently in cahoots with Team Columbia-Highroad, Scott Bicycles is developing a time trial secret weapon that’s straight outta carbon heaven.  The video above shows the frame in various stages of wind tunnel testing, and when you’re done convulsing from it, click “more” to see some screen shots that show the frame close up.  All I can say is, it’s pretty much entirely proprietary except for your wheel choice and likely the derailleurs and parts of the drivetrain…

The pieces of the frame look bolted on, but that’s likely because they’re interchangeable as they move through aero testing.
