Cofidis busted out the Mondrain frames for the finale in Paris. I seemed to get a bunch of pictures, but these are the best. Looks much better than the white frame in my opinion.

If you check the thread about the 695 it mentions a proprietary BB with the look frames. I would assume they are using the Look specific crankset they are going to sell with the frame. Not sure who makes it for them. Could be FSA.

Nice pics! I'm sure you had a great trip.

We make the Zed2 crank that is shipped with the 695, however since Cofidis is also sponsored by FSA, some of them are running FSA cranks with an adaptor.

Thanks Chas. Had a great trip. Heard rumors of Alpe de Huez coming back next year. Totally stoked for that. Any idea why the spare bikes were red/white 595 frames instead of 695 frames from the other thread I posted pictures of?

Not sure of the exact reason, but I suspect it was just a production and timing issue. As I'm sure you can imagine, the rest of the world is super anxious to get their hands on the new '695's, so they probably couldn't spare the extra 15 frames right now since production is just getting into full swing.

Chas, that is one sweet 695 Mondrian. Is there any other changes in the lineup for 2011? Any changes to the 566?

Is that guy on the right side of the second picture wearing sandals?
Probably. After the last lap the teams come around on a parade lap. It is so the spectators can see them without their helmets and get good pictures of them. Sort of an end of the race presentation. They had all sorts of shoes/uniforms. The Shack came out in their black jerseys and stirred the pot. Thor Hushovd only rode half a lap then swapped his bike with the motorcycle cop. Cop rode the last half on his Cervelo and Thor rode the guys BMW. Another rider from Garmin carried his bike on his back while riding on the back of a motorcycle with a cop. He was too tired to ride the parade lap I guess.
