if you go to the tour village check out cancellara's yellow sworks bike in the specialized tent. lift it up and feel how phenmally lite it is compared to the other pro bikes there, no wonder he flies up the mountains. i was utterly amazed

given the choice, would you rather share the roads with a woman texting in her four-wheel-drive, a manic truckie, a boy in a grey-import turbo, or a cyclist?

I think you'll find he has to pedal it like every other rider.

Is Cancellara here for the TDU? I missed that.

His time trial bike actually weighs closer to 7.3kg rather than the UCI minimum of 6.8kg thanks to the heavier disc wheels. It's no ligher than other time trial bikes.

Yes, sorry, my mistake. In any case, as others have stated, it can't be any lighter than the UCI minimum of 6.8kg, that is, the same as all the other bikes in the peleton.

If it's not in race spec it could be, but yeah, if it's the actual bike he rode in the TDF (and the spec he rode it), it won't be lighter than 6.8kg.
