Did anyone see those frames the ONCE guys were on? Looks like something new? you can see where the seatstays attach to the seattube it seems to have some "reinforcement" and a very aero downtube...................... Maybe like Carbon??????

I have to change my toughts about the frame beeing the same as the usual Giant TT-frame, i just read this at Giants homepage: "His team had prepared meticulously for the team time trial, covering 40km of the course in the morning, and they were provided with new Giant bikes with smoothed out tubes"
unforunately there are no more info about the new bikes what i can see

Yes, those were Carbon frames. What else could they be?? I've heard a rumor or two that they were coming out with one soon, so why not reviel it at Le Tour? Probably won't be available for a year or so, but oh well.
