This is one tricked out TT bike!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This guy is wack. http://www.adventuresofgreg.com/hpvlog/06-06-05.html

I've seen that water gizmo on some Japanese guy's bike earlier this year at a TT in North Las Vegas. Kind of cool. Wonder who makes it?

guy was so worried about the aero of his seat bag and then hangs a mirror off the side of his bike, I think he has a little to much time on his hands.

It looks like a tri bike. For triathlons. Thus the gear.

Whether it's Fred or not, who cares. I know a lot of people that want to carry a decent amount of water on the bike without having to worry about picking up bottles, dropping them, blah blah. Plus I think the guy with his current setup can drink pretty easily without getting too far out of his aero position.

If that helps him ride better who cares what the bike looks like

I remember one time someone posted Lance's training bike. Most people said that it looks Fredish. The dude who owns this bike might be pretty good. If it helps him perform then kudos to him. People here throw the word "Fred" around a lot and I'm curious how many of them actually competed in a race, crit or century.

In the world of triathlons, that's a pretty tame bike.

I've done all of the above.

I guess the thing about it is 1. there's no UCI pro who even bothers with the aero water thing during a TT--they just reach for the bottle. And for folks who have their bikes tuned up in wind tunnels, I would think that if there was a huge disadvantage to reaching for your bottle for a few seconds, we'd see a lot more of the aero water buckets.

Even aero can look ridiculous. If this stuff worked so well, why doesn't every TT god use it??

It's a Tasty-Bake oven so he can make his own powerbars without getting out of his aero position.
