Displayed first by video, the 2011 Scott F01 Aero Road Bike will take part in the 2010 Tour de France by Mark Cavendish, Bernard Eisel and other HTC-Columbia team riders.

The Scott 2011 F01 Aero Road Bike transfers the stiffness and weight from the Scott Addict, but make the bike more aerodynamic, resembling the Plasma 3 Time Trial and Triathlon bike from last years Tour de France. After completion, the Scott F01 2011 weighs 840 grams, and is said to be one of the most aerodynamic frames on the market.

Also comparing the F01 Aero to the Addict, the F01 uses a stiffer bottom bracket and rear hub. Lastly, the front triangle is…

After introducing the Plasma 2 last year at the Giro d’Italia, Team HTC is again using this bike for this the same event with a few renovations on the last year’s bike. Formula 1 aerodynamacist Simon Smart, together with his team is making the changes on this year’s Plasma 3.

This year, the changes can be found on the much lower front end of this bike. Complete with a Missile Evo aero bar, the stem is directly in line with the top tube.  They also customized the bar with multiple mounting holes for the arm rests and extensions making it adjustable at the arm’s rest heights and three stem lengths.

Racer and four time Italian Nation time trial champion Marco Pinotti prefers his base bar  grips fairly low but extensions are a bit higher with narrow spaces as high as 19cm that is why this new renovation is made that way…
