Phinney using double wrapped 3T Ergosum bars?

What saddle is on Phinney's bike?

It looks similar to the Specialized Chicane Pro, but it's hard to see from this angle.

Thought it was similar to the Chicane also but there's no plastic edge on the Chicane and that one looks a bit shorter. Does look like a Specialized though which might make sense given he's been on a Sitero lately.

You know, that willier TT bike isn't half bad from the side- if they just had a normal looking fork that could be a drool-worthy machine

I'm just a little interested in seeing Phinney's choice of hood angle. To be clear: I don't think that there is anything wrong with having a hoods/levers tilted in that direction relative to the bars, stem and top-tube, and all the more power to him and anyone else that finds that position comfortable/ideal, but I'm also unable to recall any other top-tier level pro who rides with a similar hand position.

I see a lot of guys over here (Holland) who begin the season with their shifter pointing skyward. They seem to drift down the handlebars as the season progresses. I know Phinney doesn't race CX as many here do, but maybe it's just a comfort thing as he adjusts to a new position on a different bike. (Pure speculation)

Degenkolb runs his high and tons of riders who ride classic bend bars end up with levers of that angle when they tilt their bars so the drops are parallel to the stem angle.

I've actually listened to most of your podcasts, but Levi bored me after about 30 seconds.
