From reading the article I get the jist that this is not his bike in that he is going to be riding it, but rather his bike company. I couldn't see any logos on that bike that had to do with Giant or TMobile.

I also think it looks rather plain. Steel is the only thing that really revs my engines now ;)

Anybody read German? Looks like a line of bikes, though this is the first I've heard of it.

The new Jan-Ullrich-frame collection

The presently most successful and best known German cyclist is Jan Ullrich and can look back on a long, extraordinary career. It would like to transmit this experience and its passion for the wheel sport now at all enthused cyclists. In collaboration with the former racers Tobias stone houses and Rolf way gene man, Jan Ullrich assembled a special frame collection. Above all in the design, Jans ideas were realized and carries each of the frames so unambiguously its handwriting.

For Jan, wheel sport speed, passion is and elegance - and exactly that is true also of its new race wheels. The Jan-Ullrich-collection consists of three frame models, that are conceived for different target groups - of the ambitious leisure time athlete to the pro - and consider the respective needs. All is joint that they price itself through a high technology level and achievement level and offer therefore special handling characteristics. Each frame is made in Italy careful of hand. In the production, only most modern materials to the use come.

Above all personality largely is written in Jan Ullrich: Two of the three models are available only as an individual Maßanfertigung. Both frames can be adapted millimeter exact on the body mass of the customer. Equal whether comfort, sportingly, Race or special for ladies - for the respective use, different frame geometries can be made. So a frame, that is voted exactly on the method and mass of the owner, emerges. The Jan-Ullrich-frames stand therefore for Maßanfertigung, Italian frame architecture and European quality.

The Jan-Ullrich-frames offer not only paramount technology, but rather also something for the eye: Discreet, unmistakable design elements and different La- ckierungen join themselves to a timeless and aesthetic design, that prices itself above all through dear to the detail. The total frame is varnished carefully of hand. Name givers were Jans largest successes: "Campione", "mount Olympus" and "Grand tour".

The new Jan-Ullrich-frames are over the chosen specialty shop or the Jan-Ullrich-wheels per-Shop in bath Saulgau available.

QUOTE: And there is still at least one more to come -- a limited edition to be presented at the Eurobike show in Friedrichshafen, Germany, the end of August. It will be a very limited edition according to Ullrich, of perhaps as few as ten frames and it will be "something very special. It's exactly what I would ride myself if I didn't have sponsor obligations."

It would be interesting what drivetrain he would put on these limited editions. If he ends up putting Record on it, it would be an added bonus for Campy users on the never ending Campy-Shimano debate.

No way he's going to ride that thing; it'll never meet the 6.8 kg limit. The frame tubes look very familiar and so do the lightweight wheels (sheer porn, I agree; I was once given a set, and I thought there was only one wheel in the bag). I'd say; a typically German bike (since they seem to be so obsessed with weight, whereas I'd rather go for a crap before the race and take only 1 drinkbus, to save weight).

More hilarity:

The trio expect (or hope) to sell 400 to 600 frames a year. Steinhauser and Weggenmann are the two business partners (Ullrich is not financially involved), and are also responsible for the technical developments. Ullrich supplied the design ideas.
"I like yellow!"

:rolleyes:
