Bikes of the Tour (Part 2)

5: Astana's Trek Madone. What more can be said about the bike that grabbed two out of three top podium spots this year and has won a few tour's in the past along with the Giro and the Vuelta. Pictured is Alberto Contador's Madone.

4: Liquigas' Cannondale Super Six. This bike that helped Franco Pellizotti conquer the mountains (sorry for not having a pic of his custom Polka Dot Super Six). Cannondale consistently produces some of the highest quality race bikes on the market.

3. Cofidis' Look 595. Cofidis is a team that never really does much in the Tour (they get in every year because they're French), but they always seem to be one of the envy's of the peloton when it comes to bikes. This year the carbon Look 595 is no exception.

2: Saxo Bank's Specialzed S-Works Tarmac. While a few teams road this bike this year, Saxo Bank put it one display the best. Whether it was the Schlecks, Cancellara or even Jens Voigt, this Specialized helped make one of the best teams in the world even better.

1: Cervelo Test Team's S3. The new team on the block definitely has the hottest bike out there. The aero-carbon frame just looks fast and paired with Thor Hushovd or Heinrich Haussler, the S3 proves it is even faster. Pictured is Haussler's S3 from the tour.
