The defining feature of this bike, which was unveiled in the spring of 2015, is the rear 'suspension' system which intersects the seatpost and seatstays. It offers up to to 10mm of travel. Other modifications for the pavé include FMB tubulars, usually only seen at the spring classic Paris-Roubaix, plus an extra layer of handlebar tape to make the tops that little bit more comfy. Will Froomey survive the cobblestones? Who will be victorious on the day? Let us know in the comments section below!
