The Masi Speciale 2010 Road Bike is not your average race bicycle. The Speciale is a mixture of both old and new, sporting a retro steel frame and fork. The components are up-to-date, making this retro and new-school mixture a force to recon with. The Masi Speciale’s frame is built using double butted 4130 chromoly steel, with a lugged chromoly steel fork. It also uses Shimano 105 shifters, with front and rear derailleurs. The bike is powered by a Truvativ Elita C2.0 crankset with compact chainrings and an integrated bottom bracket. A Ritchey Pro Zeta wheelset and Ritchey Pro Logic handlebars and stem complete the package. The Masi Speciale also sports a friendly price tag of $1,675….
The Colnago Ace road bike, designed for a rider who’s looking for a road bike with a more comfortable upright relaxed position, is the model Colnago is most excited about for 2010. When looking at the bike, you will notice Colnago’s Real-X geometry, a fancy term for saying that the head tube measures approximately 20mm taller than some of its other models, which Colnago has implemented into an all new full carbon fiber monocoque frameset. The Colnago Ace will come equipped with handlebars, a seat post, and a stem manufactured by FAS and Colnago brakes and tires. The Ace is set to release later this month in eight different sizes, ranging from 42cm through 58cm. Colnago will be offering the Ace in two different paint schemes: white or red. At a very competitive MSRP of $2,999, Colnago expects its Ace to be a popular choice.

After testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs on December 24th, 2007, Thomas Dekker requested a B test, which also came up positive. Dekker has tested positive for EPO, a banned blood-booster, which led to him not being able to race in this year’s Tour de France. In 2008, he was also not allowed to race in the Tour, and the Rabobank team cited “abnormal blood values” as the reason. Dekker has accepted the test results, and awaits his sanction.
