..... but it kinda makes sense, aerodynamically wise. (I refer to the fairing in front of the seat tube)

seatpost looks like it is back to front but isn't .

also notice how the fork and stem blend seamlessly into the frame. anybody want to guess how much £ ?

It's actually a water bottle and cage:

The UCI requires a bicycle to have an open triangular frame. It's more aerodynamic to fill the triangle with a bottle, and the rules permit it.

This isn't retro though. Couldn't you have put it in a more appropriate place?

Moved to G+OT. Whilst no one of my favourite looking aero bikes beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that. The more you look at them and see the differences the more you appreciate them.

Still It'd be a P5 for me if I had to choose
