us postal team (or at least two of them)

See Lance won't be using his new TT frame. Something about the BB being too narrow. Seems Hincapie likes it

I heard that was part of it but also that he just wasn't comfortable with the new position yet (or maybe ever!).

I'd like to see what he'll ride for L'alpe D'huez. I think it will be his regular ride but with some WW aerobars.

He should use a LightWeight disc wheel for the Alpe d'Huez TT!

They showed on the Lance cronicles that they were experimenting with different bars. They will be custum for that climb for sure. Supposedly they want an aero position but also his normal climbing positions (hoods and cross)

Should be interesting.

You know they are not showing all their cards yet (or for the TV program). You have to wonder what is true and what is deception. Bet all the other team managers watch copies of the program

Yeah, Roberto Heras/Cristian vandeVelde. More names on the list.

I heard about the BB issue on his TT bike, but I didn't see that show...what was that about?
