I don't know who your friend is but I used to work for Lance's good friend and mechanic in last years tour and every Lance bike I ever saw was a Trek and carbon fiber. I've seen a lot of pictures of Lance on training rides since Santa Barbara was his winter home, not to mention wedding grounds, the last few years. Though for some reason this year he decided to only show up for a couple of weeks. I've worked on one of his bikes and it was also carbon fiber. I'd sure that in the past he rode other bikes, but not for many years. I'll ask Dave what the history of Lance's bike use is if anybody actually cares, but I think that's a matter for another list. enjoy, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives PS classic content: On tonights coverage of the Giro they actually mentioned Alfredo Binda. -- Huge Spring Cleaning Bike Parts Sale http://www.uweb.ucsb.edu/~mkirklan/salepage/sale.html
