Nairo Quintana's Ultimate CF SLX, like the one pictured here, is made for all types of riding. On a windy day like stage 2, aerodynamics are important to combat cross winds, but most riders still use a moderately deep rim; Quintana was riding Campagnolo Bora Ultra 50 wheels.

    This saddle's seen some miles. It's tearing at the edges. But when a saddle works, it's wise to stick with it. The plastic protruding off the back of the saddle is a GPS transponder, a grand experiment in this year's Tour. Details on how the transponder works are scarce. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews

    The long, curved arm extending down from behind the water bottle cage is a chain keeper. This should come in handy as the Tour heads south and the roads become more hilly and chattery. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews

    Customization is key. Quintana's Power2max power meter features Movistar's ubiquitous green color scheme, not to mention some custom text to honor his 2014 Giro d'Italia win. It was his first grand-tour win and certainly worth commemorating on the bike. Photo: Dan Cavallari | VeloNews

    Movistar's Nairo Quintana warms up before the stage 1 time trial in the unusual heat of Utrecht. Stage 2 started in Utrecht as well and the heat was still intense, but by the time the final sprint crossed the finish line on the coast, the temperatures had dropped and storms had passed through.
