cool cycling toys

This month's WiReD has a feature on the bike Lance Armstrong is riding in the "normal" (i.e., non-time-trial) stages of the Tour. It's better in the print version, because they have pictures of everything, but the text is online, and it's pretty cool too.

The timing of the vacation put a bit of a crimp in our Tour watching schedule, so we're playing catchup at the moment -- we're on stage 6, I think, where as they just finished riding stage 8 today. Rest days should see us caught up before the end, I hope.
