Gear Tech Gallery: Mark Cavendish’s Amgen Tour of California bike A look at the Manx Missile's Scott Addict May 16, 2010 Ben Delaney Share this Facebook Icon Twitter Icon Email Icon Join VeloNews.com Create a personalized feed and bookmark your favorites.

Sign In Mark Cavendish’s Scott Addict, with recently de-stickered 60mm and 80mm carbon wheels. What Cavendish’s wheels looked like Sunday afternoon. “He likes them all black.” And what Cav wants, Cav often gets. Cav may not want the HighRoad stickers, but an eager fan certainly does. Although much of the HTC-Columbia squad runs Shimano’s Di2 electric group, Cav prefers the mechanical version. He does, however, run an SRM power meter on his Dura-Ace crank. Cav runs a Third Eye chain guard on his seattube to prevent the chain from dropping off on the inside. The Addict frame frame features an integrated carbon front derailleur hanger. On teammate Tejay Van Garderen’s bike, shown here, the Third Eye also serve to route and secure cabling for the electric front derailleur. The massive custom Pro stem keeps steering stiff in the furious sprints. Watch for the Cavendish nameplate in finish line shots around the world. The PRO stem gets the custom graphic treatment as well, although it’s largely hidden. Fizik provides the Manx Missile with a custom Arione. Nothing custom about Cav’s 170mm Dura-Ace crank arm. (Driving pistons sold separately.) The speedometer is a simple affair. As is the electric tape holding the magnet on.
