– Lasty discovered a carbon fibre chainring on Serge Pauwels Cervelo R5 bike.
– A new Argon 18 Gallium Pro as used by Fabio Aru in a custom colourway
– Chris Froome’s Pinarello F10 has a Shimano Di2 climbing shifter without the casing, making it even lighter, a custom yellow mount for his GPS and finally a carbon fibre number holder
– Adam Hansen is back with his crazy light shoes. 160g a pair, which is about half the weight of a pair of stock shoes.
