Hincapie had but Craig Lewis by his side this year, but it was enough to take the win at the 2009 US Pro Cycling Championships.  This is his backup bike, he had already taken off by the time we found their parking space (no rig, just the team car with his bike on top.  It’s the Scott Addict R1, and Scott’s known for some sick light bikes (the retail model is 13.66lbs), so I’m bummed that this is the only team bike I didn’t get a chance to weigh…

But, fear not, I did get some good photos, and he’s modded this thing…check it out after the break…

What happens when there’s no internal cable routing and you want to hide your power meter wires?  You make your own holes.  Check out the wires ducking into the frame just below the rear brake cable housing…

…and popping out right next to the Bar Code sticker (click to enlarge any of these pics).  Say it with me…Voided Warranty.

While the retail model comes with SRAM Red, the team bikes are decked out with full Shimano Dura-Ace drivetrain, shifters, brakes, wheels and pedals. Schwalbe tires, Fizik saddle and Shimano PRO handlebar and stem complete the kit.
