As far as I could tell, Jalabert was still riding a LOOK KG381i team issue frame. It was just a commemorative white frame with red "LOOK" logo for Ja Ja's winning the "king of the mountains" and "most aggressive rider" competitions. Probably just something to set Ja Ja apart from everyone else in his last tour. At a Performance in the Va. area, there is a promotion going for someone to win a special Jalabert edition of a LOOK KG381i, so JaJa's white bike may be tied to somme big LOOK ad campaign.

BTW, does anyone know what wheels Jalabert was riding? They were deep-V aero wheels with white lettering. Also, what wheels were to Posties riding today? Did they finally fill contractual obligations by riding the Bontrager Race X-Lites instead of Mavic Kyrsiriums?
Wheels look like Zipp 404's to mespookyload

That is based on the hub. The stickers on the wheels mean nothing. Just ask Tyler Hamilton about that. These aren't the same wheels he rode during his two long break aways though. Those wheels had huge hub flanges.
