This one is for a new member of the team who lives in San Fransisco. The team sponsor components are all over this rig: Headset and BB from Chris King , brakeset from Paul Component engineering , wheels,bar,stem, fork and seatpost from Easton/Bell sports. Shimano might not be a sponsor but the parts on this bike are really the best for the money and generally hold up to cyclocross better than the other options.
The brakes are the new mini-v's from Paul Components and they have serious stopping power.
The bike as you see tipped the scale at 18 lb. 3 oz. with pedals...not bad for a full race rig at a budget. -Sure, Dura Ace would drop the weight down to the sub 17 lb. range but the money saved pays a lot of entry fees.
