What tt bars did the lampre team ride with in the team timetrial? Phil and Paul said three broke.

Are rear deraileurs compatible between road and mountain bikes? the new sram ones look nice.
the regular bikes had Deda, I assume the same on the TT bikes nmclimbo

Ludo Dierckxsens is in the start house using a Deda bar. I'm sure it is the same one they used for the TTT. Lance was using a modified version of the Deda bar and hasn't gone over to the new HED bars yet.
Road and mountain derailleurs are pretty much interchangable.Spoke Wrench

You have to be a little careful with SRAM. Some of their derailleurs are "ESP" which uses a different cable pull ratio. They will only index when used with an "ESP" shifter.

wouldnt the shifter lever determine the cable pull and not the deraileur.
Yes, but they have to match.Spoke Wrench

ESP shifters pull twice as much cable per shift as a Shimano shifter. Consequently they will only work with an ESP derailleur, which only moves half as far for a given amount of cable pull.
