Paris-Roubaix 2014 - tech gallery part two

The bikes and gear for the brutal cobbles

Another Paris-Roubaix has now come and gone and in its wake lies a wide range of bikes and gear that teams adapted to survive the cobbles. It's a mostly standard formula these days – slightly relaxed frame geometries, high-volume tyres, more cushioning at the contact points – but there was still plenty of variation to keep things interesting.

Take a look at our wrap-up gallery of some of the most interesting bikes and gear that caught our eye in Compiègne, France. And don't worry – we've also got a few more pro bike features to come from the Hell of the North.
