    What's with Lance's TT bike?

    Ok I watched the Stage 19 TT, and the bike lance is riding is not a normal Equinox TTX, the front looks more like a felt DA than a trek. Does anyone know what this new bike is?

    i know his bike was yellow which i thought was either the height of arrogance or just plain ole wishful thinking.

    It's Trek's new TT bike. Here's another one that Lance rode in stage 1:

    I think it's more of a Livestrong thing. Before the tour started, he said his reason for riding again was to promote Livestrong. Obviously, mid tour he changed his tune and said he was there to win.

    Whether that's the truth or not is up to you to decide...

    It's not the maillot jaune color; it's the Livestrong foundation color.

    Lance is also a big investor in Trek.

    Wait till the final stage for yet another custom decorated bike.

    Someone in the stage18 thread posted links/pictures of the bike; it is a Trek time trial bike, just with a special paint job and wheels.

    eta: here's the link.

    And I heard a guy from Cervelo say on Eurosport that the UCI changed the rules regarding the construction for time trial bikes shortly before the Tour, so all the manufacturers had to scramble to develop equipment for the pros; and the result of that is, that none of the bikes used in the Annecy time trial are actually available in stores.

    The yellow is promote LiveStrong Foundation but of course you would have trouble seeing past your myopia to realize that.

    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Trek makes water skis? Is Lance gonna wear a leather jacket and a ski belt too?
