I just thought to look today, and I didn't notice Lance using his standard Lightweight carbon wheels for the climbs. Has he been at all? I would think that it would give him a bit more speed, especially considering Ullrich has been riding some on every mountain stage so far.

Lance is using the Bontrager Triple X Light carbon rims that Bontrager built to get him riding their wheels.. they weight a bit more than the Lightweights (just over 1000gms) but they seem to do their job. Lance seemed to be good enough on his plain ole Ksyrium's.
