The Giant TT frame on the picture looks suspicious. Could it be a german Walser, like the "Bianchi" he rode last year? Gerolsteiner rides them also.

Click: deutshland tour .. then 1. Etappe .. then click DSL or ISDN under the Rennmaschine. Dont know what's being said but you can see it's no Walser. Looks like Giant made it, maybe someone that speaks german can clarify.

How do you afford to be a WW without a job?
I became a WW after getting a job.

The similarities are obvious, however the Seat Tube and Head Tube are different. Perhaps it's not the model on the web site.

When I said I didn't have a job I meant that I do not have an employer.

I have an ebay business and lawn care service. Plus my small bike parts on the side.

He is riding a new Giant TT carbon frame. I have heard that it will be released soon . Maybe 2005.
The T-Mobile USA ladies team uses Alu frames.

Only for the custom frames (like the ones above). The rest of the time the girls are on standard issue carbon fiber. BTW, Lara Kroepsh is a cutie! She won the race I was at Sunday.

the ignorence and arrogence on this thread is amazing

some folks believe if a bike "looks" fast - it has to be Walser.

Take a look at last year - ONCE's bikes. The same frame Tmobile Ladies, men and Liberty Securities are using this year for the TTs.

The alum frames posted above are merely custom frames.
