The frame closest to the camera is a Felt.

Next time they will know to put on neon light flashing graphics just in case....


And does VdV really want to show his inventory, given the burglary of all of DZ's possessions during the ToC this spring?

there is also a felt f15x. what is cooler is the corvette parked in there. there was a feature about him in velonews several months ago that showed it.

do you think the Cervelo is a remnant of his CSC days?

Gee, thanks.

My eyes are immediately drawn to the humongous Cervelo screaming from the middle of the shot, not the two small, blurry Felts.

Interesting to note the SRM head unit is on the Cervelo which would imply that he trains on that bike.

Or it is a fake bike, some sort of decoy we have never seen before so when his house is broken into the thieves dont actually steal anything of value.

SRM needs to be charged fairly frequently so either the battery is dead or he is using it.

Probably, since his team is sponsored by powertap, but I don't see any of those either....
