This does not look like any Cervelo I've ever seen...(7 posts)

This does not look like any Cervelo I've ever seen...Cima Coppi

Hello all,

I found this picture on cycling news' website of Lars Michelsen's Cervelo. Looking at the picture, there is no way this is a Cervelo, and I know often the rider's will have there own frames built up by a different builder other than the sponsor. So, my question to you all is, looking at the bike does anyone have a guess as to who the builder is? Thought it might be fun to guess this morning.

If the picture does not come up, here is the link.

Take care,

CC,

The builder should be Cervelo. They did make steel frames, but I am unsure as to whether they still market them. The Prodigy and Rennasaince came out a few years ago. Hope this helps! I'll look into it further!

that it's a Litespeed. The frame appears to be Ti and it looks like a LS Classic to me. Just a total SWAG without the S.

Its the new Superprodigy that has been painted in team colours (the chromed seat stays) CSC are using the Prodogy's in the spring clasics.
Nickel plating on the Super-Prodigy? Niiiiiice. nmSpunout

They just exposed a bit more of it on the front. Nice paint scheme (better than their old paint schemes). Gerard mentioned it on the Cervelo forum and on Slowtwitch's forum.

Renaissance and Prodigy have been merged. Super Prodigy is the Renaissance tubes, but TIG welded.
