Aero for Old Men

Here is an interesting comparison between Lance Armstrong's Time Trial position last year vs. what we are seeing in this year's Gila.

In a TT the advantages of better aerodynamics outweighs the need for greater power and this is fundamental to the design on TT and Triathlon bikes. Not the most comfortable bikes and not your hill climbing bikes, but very fast on flat, smooth surfaces.
