Last year rumor was that Tyler road a Parlee painted in CSC-Look logos. I wonder how many pros ride custom bikes and paint them in the sponsor's/Team colors?

Wasn't the rear brake located under the chainstay at the bb junction? I may be wrong, but I thought this was how the Pinarello Mortirollo? was designed.

The whole Bianchi team is riding custom made TT bikes - there's a story about them at cyclingnews.. They aren't Pinarello's though - those have a bladed top tube and are carbon monocoque - Jan's bike is alluminum.

That snail looking helmet did the job too.

That small top tube on that Bianchi sure looks odd with all that aero tubing.

Ivan Basso's view of Ulrich was more blurry than this as he was passed like he was standing still.

How in hell does he get so low.Swat Dawg

His position is ridiculuous. He almost seems too low, because he tuck his head into his arms slipstream. I wonder how he would do if he had all of Postal's really trick TT gear. That guys just a ManBeast.

I want to know how he gets over 12 inches of exposed seatpost like that. It makes me want to cry.
