  1. This Contador thing is getting funny. Ok : bike is painted like that so you won’t see cracks. About that ?

  2. I read up until “…Leipheimer’s personal bike” and passed on it.

    The doping thing notwithstanding, that sets interest level somewhere in the ballpark of J.J. Haedo or Tyler Farrar.

  3. I listened to a lot of death and black metal in my high school years, and this is reminiscent of the barely legible band logos. I dig it.

  4. I don’t think I’ve seen many bikes from Specialized that used so little branding. I like it. If they did a woodland camo version, it’d probably be even better.

  5. That’s a sharp looking bike, doubly so with the paucity of decals.

    @notapro: Excellent idea! If Wendy O. Williams were still alive, she’d approve.

  6. I am beyond burned-out on the black/white/red color scheme, which seems to be the most common combination in the cycling industry. Disgust is my reaction.

  7. Now you can ride in peace knowing that you will never have to inspect your frame for cracks as they will now be invisible to the naked eye.
