Those are some seriously up-sloping TT bars. And low saddle.

But I assume they know exactly what they're doing.

Is he all upper body and no legs? I never realized his setup was like so.

He's only like 5' 6" And they have him on the smallest TTX Trek makes. And he has short legs and a long upper body.

Seemed to work out OK for him -- I thought that Levi was among the best at getting an aero tuck going today

Is that a wolf or a bear on the steerer tube? It looks like a claw on the fork so I’ll go with bear. I’m not too crazy about the colors but I like bears. Is that a new motif for Trek?

edit: actually the head tube.

It's a bear, that's the animal on the Cali state flag

California does have the best state flag, but is that design just for Levi? I haven't seen any of the other Astana TT bikes.

Exactly right.Like univ. of Cal. the golden bears. As for set up. He spent much time in the wind tunnel to hone his TT tuck along with Lance and 'Bert. They didn't come up with this in there... they confirmed that this was the best for him. And as mentioned he took second today to Fabian (its not the bike) Cancellara. So it works.

Nothing represents your state more than an animal you shot into extinction in your neck of the woods.

Apparently it was originally supposed to be a pear, but someone misheard or something.
