These are some of the best, most exciting and inspiring photos i've seen of men on velocepedes...

What about my home-boy Wiggins?

Any theories, ideas as to why this vs. a side-pull caliper? More aero?

Ed, I just double checked to make sure I was not going crazy. The Mark II was introduced in 2004.

Jeez, another fantastic shot, these are amazing!

No, that isn't Wiggins,

Bradley Wiggins rides for High Road, he was number 38 and set of at 1455hrs if that helps...
