"Next year, Gerolsteiner and Lampre will ride the 2003 Wilier Izoard model, a scandium compact geometry frame with a thin layer of carbon fibre wrapped around the top, down and seat tubes. Added to the carbon rear triangle and carbon forks, the carbonwrapping is said to further absorb road shock." From Cycling News. www.wilier.it

I heard that Bianchi is going to inject their 2005 bikes with ELV (Extreme-Low-Void) carbon foam. They are looking into using it instead of air for the tires as well.

More drivel, just like the "carbon wrap" on the stays of the Merckx Team SC. Just goes to show that some people will believe anything
