Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I thought TT bars are supposed to be level?

Also, it looks like the saddle is going into his butt. Looks comfortable.

That's Floyd Landis, TDF winner and all. It is common to see time trialist scooted forward like that for more power because the UCI restricts how far forward saddles are allowed to be.

Some saddles are marketed time trial specific with extra padding on the nose for such purpose.

'sides Superman style debuted in the mid-90s.

back in the late 80s, meanwhile, Lemond had his aero bars jacked up but he was on a funnybike so arms were only a little above horizontal
