After looking at pics of Jan's TT bike on www.lancearmstrong.com I saw that he is using what appears to be a Mavic 5-spoke carbon wheel in front. I looked on Mavic's site but I didn't see it. Anyone know if it is a Mavic or not? Thanx!

It is a track wheel. Riders on teams that use mavic stuff will call up mavic and say, "um, could you like put a breaking surface on this wheel for me please?" Mavic will then say ok and then give that rider 5 wheels for the season. If you actually wanted to get this wheel i think the retail is $4300. To see it on the site go to 'Track' and then 'wheels' and then select 'IO'.
Cool, thanx!KRider

That's pretty expensive! Is that just for one wheel?
