I have seen the EXACT same shots of the new Shimano Dura-Ace components on several sites lately and each just shows a snippet of the stuff. Lance Armstrong rode the new componants at Het Volk but clear shots of the bike seem to be nonexistant. I know Shimano has tried to control the rate of information but this is bizarre. Is everyone in on this? Are they all afraid of showing the hardware on a bike that is in clear view of the public? What gives.

QED. These are the photos I was talking about. Brifter mostly covered by a hand, left crank arm only, rear mech. from behind. Not exactly showing what the new stuff looks like. I feel as if I'm watching an old monster movie where you only get glimpses until the last reel.

Good marketers, huh? Suspense is their job. n/mfracisco

First of all, Lance didn't ride Het Volk at all!
What he did ride was the Amstel Gold Race, with the Dura Ace 2004.

If you want exact photos and plot-computer-images of the new group, feel free to mail me:

Thanks Pieter, the Amstel Gold is what I was thinking but Het Volk came out my fingers.
