    Anyone ever seen anything like this before? It's a new one for me.

    max sciandri rode one when riding for motorola...i've seen a couple for sale over the decade...it's similar to what colnago did on some of the larger frames, known as freulers after pro rider urs freuler

    I'm just guessing but I think the thing they were going for is 2 seat clamps. See a lot of pro teams putting extra clamps on the seatposts during Roubaix etc...

    Looking at the relative head tube length and the very relaxed seat tube angle, I concure with zoikz that it is a frame configuration for larger riders, and Roubaix would could have been a likely engineering target for such a frame. Steve Bauer had Merckx build him a super laid back geometry bike, specifically for Roubaix. As far as the seat clamp, again, it is a very robust looking setup that would help endure the rigors of Roubaix.
