New bikes for '09

Looks like blue is making a cf track frame. I was going to snap a cellphone pic last night but it left before I could.

Giant’s going to be selling a carbon TCR Track in the US this year. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s the same mediocre geometry as the Omnium, but who knows. The Europeans have been racing on them with some success, I guess.

Oh, and cost is like $1400. You can figure out what that’ll retail for.

And idea of price for the Blue CF track?

Nope i just saw one at the track last night and didn’t get a chance to ask about it. Aero tubing, more smooth than a teschner or something, 1k weave with a silver blue logo. The cosmetic stuff probably isn’t final. I wonder if this means they’re going to move away from lugged frames on their road bikes.

Is Blue centered in Georgia or something? Would they have test bikes out there. Since settling in Indy, I’ve seen Zipp prototypes of all kinds on bikes everywhere. Even bums ride around on dumpstered Zipps, no joke.


hahahahaha, is that for real? that’s rad.
