Di2 Only?

I wonder if this frameset will be Di2 specific? I am not noticing any cable stops (except for the rear brake) and there appears to be some holes under the water bottle bosses on the seat tube. This would certainly explain the "Shimano" logo.

Good eyes! It would make some sense for the team bike to be Di2 specific. It'll be interesting to see if Cavendish rides with Di2. But I don't see the internal routing entry/exit points that the Roubaix S-Works has either. This makes me think that the picture might be the team frame, or a pre-production model, rather than the consumer one. I suspect that we will see internal cable routing on S-Works sooner or later though, largely motivated by Di2 and the Ultegra version.

Frameset only, and only with the OSBB, according to the dealer site.

I like the paint scheme. As someone said earlier if the Shimano decals are under the clear coat I might have an issue with it.

I believe, though I am not certain, this was a pre-production mock-up. My guess is that Spesh took a Pro and painted it up at their HQ in Morgan Hill.

It might be a team issue bike - in which case they'll be running Shimano cranks (Dura Ace with Di2).
