I saw it mentioned as illegal by cyclingnews, but I also saw he was racing it in Romandie.

Fairings are illegal, and that headtube stuff sure looks like a fairing too me.

Pretty cool how it also covers up the front brake.

*Technically* it's not a fairing, it's an integral part of the brake. Kind of like what Cervelo did with the P4's rear brake. "It's not a fairing, it's a brake booster."

It's hard to tell from the pic but it doesn't seem to be a fairing to me, as it is the base for the bars, essentially replacing the stem. I guess it depends on whether it is just a cover over something else that is actually bearing the load, or whether it is bearing the load itself. Anyway, sure looks cool, and is a pretty big departure from the transition.

Sure, it's a structural part of the brake, but they could have just mounted the brake to the fork. Hard to determine when a part is really needed.

"needed" doesn't matter for whether or not something is a fairing. Aero wheels, teardrop shaped tubes, etc. aren't "needed"

Looking at the closeup pictures it seems from the seams that it's probably not structural and the whole brake thing is an interesting way to try to get around it.

Wheels and tubes definitely are needed, aero or not.

these compnies keep stretching the rules farther and farther...

the UCI is going to go too far in banning this stuff and we'll all be on Eddie Merckx Hour Record rules before you know it.

in the thread about the UCI cracking down on aero, someone mentioned the new swimsuits that cut down on drag. Water is considerably different from air, but it makes me wonder if someone could do something similar with a bike and not otherwise break the rules.

That fairing on the front is actually moving up into the aspect ratio range that has a significant effect.

I'm guessing Cancellara's Specialized won't be legal at the Tour de France.

They can remove the fairing and probably make legal if it comes to that.

3:1 aspect ratio of thickness to tube width is going to require a redesign of the head tube of the bike as well. 30mm rims might just barely be legal.
