RE the appearance...one, it's a (rightly) used bike & being displayed as such, and two, that's nothing....the tradition with Paris-Roubaix winning bikes is to leave them as is, forever. EG Servais Knaven's 2001 Eddy Merckx, here photographed fourteen years later...

Franco Ballerini's 1995 Colnago C40 is the same (now in the factory museum). Cycling Weekly did a shoot with one of Spartacus' winning Trek Domanes a few years back, and they were told to be careful to leave the muck where it was!

It does make the bike more intetesting and proof its the original item , I should have asked if Scott intend to display it at other dealerships around the country
