Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Max’s Rainbow Madone

Looking at a picture. Did he get rid of the integrated cockpit? I know Cancellara did. Seems like long distance guys would rather be lower than have the most aero front end.

No doubt. I assumed it was so aero, it was virtually invisible.

Here you go. BTW mechanics do not like integrated bars with hidden cables.

Your eyes clearly can't keep up with your mouth. I spoke to multiple crew members from Trek Segafredo team last year during their stage visit through my town. Most of the Madone's had two piece cockpits allowing easier access to the mechanics. This was the reason given to me by multiple team members. But hey, some internet expert knows more.

No reason to get upset.

I don't think there are any cables on that bike either. Wires? Perhaps. Lines? Likely. Cables, not so many.

Maybe he's testing out a prototype. Maybe they switched sponsors.

Bontrager (their equipment sponsor) doesn't make an integrated bar/stem unit that allows for the reach and drop Mads prefers.

Looks like eTap. Being a technological Luddite who also rides rim brakes, vocabulary-wise, I would never have thought to differentiate between "lines" and "cables" when it comes to discs. I learned something from BF today.

You can call them "hoses".

True, but knowing a small bit of your background, I bet you never called a brake line on a Chevy a hose. "I just did the best double flare I've ever done, and of course, I forgot to put the fitting on the hose", just doesn't jive.

If they're flexible you can call them a hose.
When ordering parts or looking stuff up in service information it can be difficult to figure out what GM called it. It could be a hose, a pipe, a tube, a duct, a fitting, or even a harness. The other weird thing is parts have different names in service documents than they do in parts information sometimes. Even with the computers it can take the parts department a while to figure out what service is asking for and how to look it up.
Just remembered the fuel inlet/outlet assy for the early CMPI injection was called a "nut kit". 2 flexible plastic pipes with a fitting= a nut.
