Nestling quietly in the Specialized booth were several bikes showing what a good season Specialized had this year – there was Contador and Andy Schleck’s Tour bikes and this one: Sam Hill’s World Championship winning bike.
Looks like a stripped down XO brake, but these pro racers get all sorts of trick stuff.
In case he forgets
Trick Black(box) sliders - wonder if the full-travel O-ring has been moved since the World Champs?
No sign of any moto-foam or similar hop-ups that graced Hill's Iron Horse
Blackbox DH cranks - which will soon become available.
Forget 30 speed - Hill runs 1 x 6!
Trick (and now production) SDG saddle for extreme grip (and minimal comfort - it keeps you pedaling...)
Everyone needs some matching casual/podium shoes eh? (Not necessarily Sam Hill's...) ;-)
