Interesting transcript in VeloNews. Lance saying that bents are far superior (aerodynamically-no sh!t), and if the rule books allowed it, he'll "be on it."

I could see Lance riding a Challenge Jester-with TREK decals of course!

He'd have to switch bikes at the base of EVERY hill, or those on regular bikes would attack and shell him instantly.

At least nobody would be able to draft behind him. ... Seriously though, I would love to own a recumbent and will probably buy one once I work my way down my bike wish list.
