    The Cannondale-Garmin team uses FSA cockpit components. Howes rides the FSA Energy aluminum handlebar with a 120mm FSA OS-98 CSI stem — the same stem that comes stock on the production bike. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

    It appears that the Cannondale-Garmin mechanics use electrical tape to keep the Shimano Di2 wires neatly tucked against the brake cable housing. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

    Howes rides a Garmin Edge 510, which should give him more than enough information when he’s racing, as he won’t require a street map and the added features of the 810 and 1000. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

    Howes, and the majority of his teammates are not riding the Garmin Vector 2 or 2S pedals, and instead riding SRM cranks with whatever pedals they prefer. Cannondale-Garmin’s director of communications, Marya Pongrace told us, “As part of our partnership, Garmin works with our athletes and mechanics to continue to improve its products, including Vector. As such, at this time, it is not at all uncommon to see different combinations on team bikes.” Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

    The Cannondale-Garmin team rides Mavic Cosmic CXR 60 tubular wheels with Mavic tires. The CXR 60 wheels come with the CX-01 strip that snaps in around the outside of the rim to smooth airflow across the tire to the wheel, however it’s not UCI legal, and thus, not shown here.
