Chad Beyer's Scott Foil - Gallery

A closer look at the ride of the veteran American breakaway specialist

Journeyman Chad Beyer has had the opportunity to ride a lot of different bikes as his long pro career has bounced from Continental to Pro Continental to WorldTour teams and back again. From BMC Racing in 2009-2011, to Competitive Cyclist, Champion System, 5-hour Energy, Lupus and now Hangar 15, Beyer has made the rounds.

The talented climber and breakaway specialist landed at Hangar 15, formerly Canyon Bicycles, after Lupus came apart in the offseason, and now the 31-year-old from Scottsdale, Arizona, finds himself on the Utah-based team that competes on Scott Bicycles. 

Beyer is usually a very aggressive rider, heading up the road whenever the opportunity presents. His adventures led to a stage win at this year's Grand Prix Saguenay, where Beyer won stage 3 from a 10-man breakaway and finished eighth overall while helping teammate Steve Fisher take the general classification win.

Beyer rides a 54cm Foil, decked out in a Shimano Dura-Ace gruppo. The wheels are Dura-Ace, hooked up to Michelin Pro4 tyres front and rear. Beyer chooses a 53/39 chainset for the front, while running 11-28 in the rear. Syncros provides the handlebar/stem combo as well as the headset and bottle cages. Specialized provides the saddle, while Beyer keeps track of his rides with the Garmin Edge 520.
