Has any one noticed all the sweet gear in the Tour? If you’re anything like me, then you watch for the bike close-ups as much as the actual race. Though few of us can afford them, the tour race bikes are our objects of lust. We glue ourselves to the TV just to get a glimpse of Carlos Sastre’s Zipp 303s, or Andy Schleck’s Specialized SL3 Tarmac. Almost everything the tour guys are riding can be purchased through Arts Cyclery. Let’s start with Astarloza’s Orbea Orca. This exact bike can be purchased through us, and it’s only 15.3 lbs in stock form. Add the PRO handlebar, stem and seat post and this bike would easily be UCI illegal (sub-15 pounds). Or how about Contador’s gear; SIDI Genius 6.6s, and Giro Havik shades. How about Polka Dot jersey wearer Franco Pelizotti’s Cannondale SuperSix Team. His exact bike – including his Cosmic Carbon wheels, Super Record gruppo, and FSA Handlebar, stem and seat post, is available through us. Thor Hushovd is back in the Green jersey, and his Cervelo S3 can be custom built up for you without any fuss. Andy Schleck is in the White jersey and his Tarmac SL3 will be available shortly.
Call for details on S-Works SL2s, as we have some left at killer prices. Lastly, don’t forget that Arts has almost everything you need to get yourself looking like a pro. With full kits from Garmin-Slipstream, Cervelo Test Team, Columbia-HTC, Saxo Bank, and Liquigas, not only can you ride the Pro’s bikes, you can look like one too.
