2011 Tour de France, stage 1, Gilbert's wheels

Mechanics marked this set of Cosmic Carbon Ultimates with a silver Sharpie (it’s kind of faint, but just above the SSC sticker) as Gilbert’s. The Continental Competition tire is one of the most popular in the peloton. The electrical tape on the valve extender keeps it from rattling. I do doubt that there are any Sapim spokes on this wheel though. Photo: Nick Legan
