Favorite TdF team bike?

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

Favorite TdF team bike?

Does anyone know if there is a model for the public of the Opera Leonardo FP with a Illes Balears color scheme?

That is my pick for the coolest looking bike of the Tour.

What is your pick?

Wrolichs' Roubaix because I've got a Roubaix comp, so it stands to reason that mine's just like his.

Cofidis' Wilier Izoard is prettly slick. And I'd have to agree that the paint job on the Illes Balears bikes is really good looking.

Huffy actually had some bikes entered in the tour during the 80's. Team 711 maybe? Team Crest also:



They weren't real huffy's though (which takes the fun out of it)

To stay on topic: Scott CR1

They're made by Giant. Essentially the same as what der Kaiser perches himself on.
