what happened to the pinarellos they were riding last year? did this change 'cuz telekom "became" t-mobile, or was it a sponsor change, or what?
Yes, bike sponsor change nmmerckxman

Always pegged Jan as a Campy guy. That's a drasticFez

change from mostly Euro stuff to Asian stuff.

But I'm sure he'll have a great season regardless of what equipment is under him.

I'm just speculating....chances are Jan will be riding custom aluminum almost non-sloping. They say he's extremely picky regarding bike fit and feel. On the other hand Giant might simply decide to spend the money and make full custom carbon for him. We'll see I guess.
He's usually 56 x 58 c-c. Giant won't fit, yet...nmSpunout

I haven't seen many bikes I really like the looks of this year. Yuck. I hate the looks of Jan's new bike.
