I think the crank and brakes are part of his training system... helps measure wattage or something. Can't imagine what the brakes would be doing, though...

Looks like 1985 Shimano-Aero Groupo.

Yup, it's a Shimano Dura Ace AX brakeset. The AX series components were the first attempt at 'aero' stuff. Made in 81~83 it never really caught on, but set the mark for trying something new. It was odd-looking at the time, but beautifully designed. You can see some examples here: https://www.classicrendezvous.com/Italy/Tommasini/Tomm_AX_prts.htm

THAT is his new position? Looks like he's taken some hints from Big Jan there. He must be sooo scared!

But...

Lance DID WIN the time trial stage, and the posties dominated the race. Pretty good considering Lance considered it basically a training ride.

LA's running normal D/A rings on his TT machine and they make that crank look ridiculous.

I'll stick with my 9sp versions for the time being thanks.
