Most of the TT bikes on show are curvaceous, sculpted carbon offerings, but it doesn't have to be this way - Litespeed are showing off this Titanium tubed beauty. It's just a prototype but looks well-finished, and importantly the main tubes look have the 4:1 ratio that any budding Mike Burrows will tell you is necessary to achieve a real aerodynamic advantage: most carbon TT bikes fall short. The seat tube is Ti too, and the carbon Selle Italia seat has an integrated bottle holder to keep your drink out of the airflow.
