Bikes of the Tour of Flanders - Part 2

More tech from the Ronde van Vlaanderen

Mild weather prompted teams and riders to stick to rather conventional gear once again for this year's Tour of Flanders, with just a few concessions made for the tricky cobbled climbs.

Fatter tubular tires were inflated to lower pressures, a few teams opted for modified or more 'Roubaix style' frames, and aggressively aero wheels were replaced with ones that would better cope with typically windy conditions.

We brought you a look at many of the bikes from key teams and riders at the Ronde van Vlaanderen earlier this week but here's a look at what else we spotted on race day.

Movistar used a mix of Pinarello Dogma 2 and Dogma K machines at Ronde van Vlaanderen
