Bontrager will supply the wheels stems, handlebars, seatposts and saddles. For 2010 the team will use Hutchinson tires and Look pedals. The most striking aspect of the RadioShack bikes is their intricate paint schemes. The RadioShack team bikes paint jobs feature multiple RadioShack logos along with a yellow strip on the right seatstay in support of Armstrong’s Livestrong foundation.



SAXO BANK
The Saxo Bank team bikes are built around Specialized’s SL3 frames and feature SRAM red drivetrains mated to Specialized FACT carbon cranks. The team continues with Zipp wheels that are wrapped in Specialized tires. FSA provides the seatposts and handlebars, while Specialized uses their own stems and saddles. The team continues with Speedplay pedals.



SKY
New British ProTour team Sky roars into 2010 aboard Pinarello Dogma 60.1 frames. The team will race on full Shimano Di2 electric or Dura Ace components connected to an SRM PowerMeter. The team will run Dura Ace wheels with Vittoria tires. Deda provides the handlebars and stems, while Pinarello’s in house brand Most provides the seatpost. Prologo saddles round out the team bikes.
