    What bikes do each team use?

    Does anyone know of a single website where I can find out what equipment the teams are using? Cheers.

    No, but if you check out the websites of each team's sponsor it should have a mention of the tour team.

    For example: http://www.phonak.com/

    Prominent display of the cycling jersey with a link to the company's cycling site... which in turn has a link to BMC the Phonak team's bike.

    Holy Cow, I just found out T-Mobile is a part of Deutsche Telekom.

    There is, I know because I found it once, but forgot to bookmark it! It was CNN sports or CBS sports or something, but I am still searching to find it again.

    Excellent, thanks for the replies. I wonder how much I can get a Pinarello Dogma for if I part ex my 80s racer!

    actually Liberty Seguros rides Giants - they've been doing it since beginning of this year... in April they said BH is behind in production (which I don't buy since a team needs how many bikes?)...

    well the Tour is here and they are still on Giants...

    Well son of a ***... they are TCRs. http://www.cyclingnews.com/tour04.ph...ez_de_galdeano

    I had erroneously assumed the Spanish BH frames would have been ready in time for the tour. How pathetic is it when a frame sponsor can't come through with frames for the Tour.

    Saeco is riding Cannondales with Campagnolo grouppos.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    G'day,

    Credit Agricole ride 'Look', not 'Time'...FDJ ride 'shimano' not 'campy'.Anyone see Jan's T/T bike in the prologue?....If that was a 'giant', then I need my eyes tested!.....

    That was a Walser - there are several theories behind why he uses it.

    1) He thinks it is faster than the Giant TT bike he used during the season

    or

    2) He wanted a heavier bike (he claimed he used his heavier TT bike during the prologue and that his teammates decided to use the lighter ones)...

    how to tell? wait until the TTT and ITTs. Giant and Walser's TT frames are both unique... so it is quite easy to tell them apart =)

    Andy Walser was the innovator of the narrow bottom bracket design and narrower dropout spacing(by today's standards) that has tested out with improved aeroynamic advantages in wind tunnel testing. The narrow BB brings the knees closer together and provides a more aerodynamic profile. For some riders, it also increases power because of the repositioning of the legs in relation to the hip.

    This design was copied by Trek in Lance's new TT bike that he abandoned because he couldn't adapt to the new position.

    I haven't heard much about them weighing more or less, but they do provide aerodynamic advantages if you can ride them.

    The narrow BB design from Walser's website:

    He also used a set of Xentis wheels instead of one in the front and disk in the back. Maybe he was just playing it safe?

    No doubt. Did't catch the cut & paste error before posting.
