... whatever this is worth. have a fiat team card (large size too) ... and only one bicycle is shown. even so, with the silver paint, i can't tell if the fork crown is chrome or not. it is flat with the two side "prongs", and a reynolds triangle fork decal on the side. ... the top tube brake guides are definitey clip-ons. so are the front shifters bolt on too. otherwise the same. ... maybe he got his, maybe it was just a photo shoot, (given only one bike), and the rest of the team got the others. robert clair alexandria, va 22308
