Andy Jacques-Maynes’ Specialized

A former road bike product manager at Specialized, Andy Jacques-Maynes has an eye for detail when it comes to bikes, and has the advantage of riding a frame he helped design. Jacques-Maynes won the 30-34 national cyclocross championships for the second year in a row on Saturday, aboard a carbon Tricross.

Besides being one of the lightest bikes on the circuit, the Roubaix features threaded attachments for racks and fenders, a rarity on pro-level race bikes. Jacques-Maynes covers the rack attachments, and the bottle cage inserts, with tape to prevent water from getting inside the frame.
