Frank Schleck's CSC Cervélo SLC-SL

Abstract:
The company is certainly convinced that it has a winning formula. According to its own website, "because of the aerodynamic advantages, the regular Soloist Carbon was already the fastest bike in most situations, if not quite the lightest. The SLC-SL puts an end to any uncertainty in this regard, and it combines its aerodynamics with such a low weight [less than 1000 grams] that it is clearly the best choice in any terrain."

The weight claims are accurate: despite its aero profile, Schleck's bike tips the scales at 6.9 kilos, just 100 grams over the UCI weight limit. It is kitted out with an Alpha Q GS-10 Nanotech fork, which uses nanotech technology to maximise the weight-to-strength ratio. The two are joined with a FSA integrated headset and held in place by a 130 mm FSA OS-115 stem, which is in turn mated to 42 (c to c) FSA Energy traditional-shape handlebars.
