if you block out the drops they pretty much form the countour of a pair of messenger bars. I like them.

that's the upcoming DA 10 shifters and rear derailuer for sure, can't see the brakes or front derailuer enough to say. The crank is not. They probably didn't want to be that obvious with it.

Crank has nothing to do with being obvious...russw19

Vini Caldirola is sponsored by FSA. That is the Team Issue Crank Set. That's why you don't see the Dura-Ace.. Sponsor concerns.

Is that why Tyler has D/A cranks with FSA stickers?merckx56

Top guys ride what they want, and just put different stickers on the stuff! Always have, always will!

OK then, so explain what this has to do with the post about not wanting to be obvious with the cranks then?

Why do the pros seem to like the big ring big cogs?MikeBiker

If I was in the gears that Garzelli is using, I would shift to the small ring and a smaller cog. I think that the chain line would be better with less stress on the chain.

This is not a small cog! i am positive this could be a 15T or 16T. Fabtastic power toio climb using this gear.

Because they don't have to worry about durability and really don't care much about it either.They ride in the gear that gets them going the fastest and if it's easier to be in the big ring big cog combo, so what?
