Ivan Rovny started stage 6 of the USA Pro Challenge sitting in third place on GC. The Russian cycling federation purchases BMC Team Machine SLR01 frames for their riders. According to team mechanic Ralf Medloff RusVelo wants its riders to be on the “very best equipment, even if they have to purchase it.” Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

Rovny employs a setback seatpost to have the proper amount of saddle setback for his Selle Italia SLR. Many of his RusVelo teammates choose to use the zero-setback seatpost. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

The entire RusVelo team runs Shimano’s Pro Vibe 7000 Series cockpit. The aluminum bar and stem combo is not the lightest option, but it’s stiff and these SLR01s are very close to the UCI minimum weight and the heavier cockpit allows riders to run lightweight wheels.

From time to time we come across a pro rider who buys his own Lightweight wheels from the German manufacturer, but not very often do we find an entire squad using them. RusVelo buys all of the Lightweight Meilensteins so that the riders have the very best equipment to choose from. What a fortunate group of young Russian cyclists. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

Internal cable routing can make on-the-fly adjustments tricky. On Ivan Rovny’s SLR01 rear derailleur cable tension can be adjusted thanks to this in-line barrel adjuster. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com
