Instantly recognisable, David Millar?s 2007 Scott Addict has been painted identically to his time trial bike, with his name emblazoned on the top tube, and a dragon with tartan on the fork and head tube.

Appearances aside, Millar?s Scott Addict is a standard Limited frame made by the new ?Integrated Moulding Process? (IMP), consisting entirely of carbon, including the cable stops, front mech hanger and dropouts; in fact, the only aluminium on the frame is the replaceable dropout.

SRAM sponsors the team for groupsets, with the top of the range Force being present. However, Millar has been using the new BlackBox ceramic bearing GXP bottom bracket and the new RED groupset shifters, identifiable with their lack of logos and slight prototype appearance. Another small change, common throughout the team, is the use of a Shimano Dura-Ace cassette and chain. Mavic Cosmic Ultimate wheels are at present wrapped in Hutchinson tubulars.

Elsewhere, Millar uses a Ritchey 4 Axis stem and WCS aluminium bar which give a no-nonsense front end, while a Fizik Arione titanium-railed saddle and Time RXS Ulteam pedals finish the contact areas off. Elite Pase Macia cages and Polar CS400 computer help keep the bike just above the UCI weight limit.

Millar shifts from Saunier Duval to the US-based Slipstream-Chipotle team for 2008.

With Millar?s name in red on the top tube, there?s no mistaking who rides this custom-finished beauty
