The team is trying them, some riders like them, some are thinking about it and others just said NO! They are very rigid, nice on a smooth road, but perhaps a little unforgiving of rough surfaces, they are trying different tire combinations etc.
Maybe they'll do a combo gold and rainbow version for Bettini. Apparently Specialized is doing a special paint job for him.
Not to be outdone, Tom Boonen added the rainbow stripes to his kit- I don't think I've ever seen a past year's champ add the stripes to the shorts though.
The question though is, with all these great one day racers, can Quick Step work together to make sure someone on the team wins? More on that later.
