First spotted on Tony Martin's Instagram earlier this month, the all-new Giant Propel has broken cover at the Tour de France - and Cycling Weekly is the first to get close to it with these photos of Luke Durbridge's Team BikeExchange-Jayco bike by Dan Cavallari.

Not only that, but the team is using as-yet-unreleased Cadex 50mm tubular wheels, which looks like a significant departure from the tubeless, hookless technology formerly championed by Giant's high-performance wheel brand.
