If you watched the Team Time Trials tonight, then you know what riding a bike really fast on a technical course looks like. But, did you catch what Lance's TT bike looked like? I fucking did. It was co-designed by Marc Newson, an incredible industrial designer who has worked with G-Star and has done everything from uniforms to furniture. Anyhow, I like the idea of art, design, and cycling coming together like this. Not that it's anything massively new. But nonetheless.

Lance also had a bike done up by Shephard Fairey. Ya' know, the artist that once was anti The Man, and essentially now *is* The Man. OBEY.
