Is that a triple on the top one?

Not sure I'm a fan of those fat/wide whatever you want to call them wheels. They sure get your attention though.

Regarding the TT bike handlebars - if I rode with bars like that, I'd have a case of carpal tunnel syndrome within 40k.

No. It's a double. The Dura-Ace chainrings are deep and look like a chainguard.

The graphics on the Bontrager full-disc wheels have always given me a headache when I watch them spin. It reminds me of the begining of a Twilight Zone episode.

There's a tiny HED sticker on the wheels, I doubt Bontrager really made them, They look like Zipp rims anyways.

the wheels look like Bontrager's paired spoke technology integrated with Hed's aerodynamics. Perhaps they partnered on these wheels? Very nice!

Their probably not his main wheels. I doubt he'll ever use them, well maybe on the first couple stages. They are probably there for the OOOOOOOOO AAAAAAAAAA affect.

about those rims; in the last stage of the dauphine hincapie was riding some very deep section rims, while the other guys were on the usual looking bontrager stuff. maybe those were a set of the ones on the new TDF bike? or maybe they were his own set of zipps. lol. anyone know for sure?

p.s. is that a 56 tooth ring on the TT bike? DANG!

Well bontrager does have an aero wheel already, the rin wasnt as deep as the one above. I think those have a deeper rims and special edition paint jobs which I hae to say are pretty snazzy.
