What kind of aero bars did lance use for the mountain time-trial at this year's TDF? They are some sort of clip -on type. I think David Millar used the same type at the world's this year, too. Anyone know what they are, where you can get them?

thanks in advance!

do you guys ever read, or what. His quasi-TT bars used for the mountain TT (in both the TdF and the TdSuisse) were basically the extension of a profile carbon x aerobar. the elbow rests were just kind of cobbled together from some other bar so that Lance could still put his hands on the top of the bar. I think you can buy clip-on bars by Profile that are carbon, and are very similarly shaped to the carbon-x extensions. they were not vision tech, and were not deda--despite the deda tape running down the side.

From what I've read they're custom made by the aerodynamic guy he consults.
