    Is this yours or just a question in general?

    Nah :p

    I like pretty much all the old Telekom kit stuff and bikes. Looks a lot cooler than T-Mobile Giant TT bikes.

    The Aerobars look like they need to be level not pointed down.

    Looks like it'd be a bit uncomfy on those centuries. ;)

    Perhaps, but you wouldn't be uncomfortable for as long.

    Yeah but you will only have to deal with the discomfort for 4 hours or less...Maybe I am crazy but I would rather be uncomfortable and fast for 4 hours than comfortable and slow for 4.5 hours...

    No, YOU would have to deal with the discomfort for 4 hrs or less. I'd still be slogging along at my 5hr + century pace, cool bike or not.

    would guess you could still ride in 20-30 minutes less on that bike vs your standard road bike. Of course less than 10 minutes of that would be because of the aero position and equipment, while the remainder would be tangible psychological benefits...

    Pretty nice. I never liked those brake levers though. I'd rather the dia-compe type brake levers with no brake hoods and a smaller overall profile. The whole handlebar setup doesn't do it for me, but the rest of the bike looks sweet. :)
