look at the pics from last season. I'm planning road bike with disc rear, funny hat, skinsuit, shoe covers, maybe trispoke front. No aerobars allowed.

here is what is listed from last year's tech manual. Haven't heard about any changes.

SPECIAL TIME TRIAL RULE
You may use only equipment which is permissible for use in a mass start road race under USA
Cycling rules.
Allowed: any mass start legal road bike, any wheels (disk or deep carbon wheel will be allowed)
and any helmet which is permissible for a mass start road race (see:
http://www.usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=2109) (this means aero helmets are allowed if
they meet the standard). Bars which do not extend forward of the bend in a road bar and are mass
start legal will also be allowed.
Banned: time trial bikes, bullhorn bars, aero bars or any forward pointing bar extension or any
equipment that allows a rider to support or rest their forearms on the handlebars. Any equipment
deemed unsafe by the officials.
The Chief Referee shall be the final arbiter in any disputes regarding acceptable equipment.

I don't know if there's any changes planned for 2010 (doubt it), but the 2009 Tech Manual clearly outlines what permissible last year:

SPECIAL TIME TRIAL RULE
You may use only equipment which is permissible for use in a mass start road race under USA Cycling rules.
Allowed: any mass start legal road bike, any wheels (disk or deep carbon wheel will be allowed) and any helmet which is permissible for a mass start road race (see: http://www.usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=2109) (this means aero helmets are allowed if they meet the standard). Bars which do not extend forward of the bend in a road bar and are mass start legal will also be allowed.
Banned: time trial bikes, bullhorn bars, aero bars or any forward pointing bar extension or any equipment that allows a rider to support or rest their forearms on the handlebars.
Any equipment deemed unsafe by the officials.
