Every few months, but never often enough, Specialized launched a limited edition frameset for one of their athletes. In the past, we’ve drooled over bikes for Ned Overend and anything designed by Garret Chow, and now we have these two beauties.
First up is the Contador model
Each of the three colors represents one of the Grand Tours won by the Spaniard.
Pink for the Giro d’Italia, Yellow for the Tour de France, and Red for the Vuelta a España. Only three hundred limited edition frame sets will be produced. The Limited Edition Nibali frame set has been available since last year, but it’s still so unique it’s worth featuring here. Designed in conjunction with Italian Vincenzo Nibali, the frame is adorned with sharks, which represent his nickname. The shark motif is represented subtly throughout the frame using tone-on-tone graphics.
Hit play to watch the Astana team mechanic build the frame into a bicycle.
