Under the hood- fake Tour tech

There’s an interesting article at cyclingnews about riders using repainted/rebranded frames and other equipment.

“The uppermost tier of the sport is fueled in no small part by sponsorship funds, yet when it comes to bicycles and components, elite riders are clearly not limited solely to what they’re supposed to be riding. Whether it be to satisfy rider preference or for a real (or just perceived) performance advantage, under-the-radar equipment changes are a relatively common aspect of racing and sponsors are apparently occasionally willing to look the other way if it means that they can still tie their name to a victory, even if it wasn’t really on its product.”
