Don't forget the Speedplays. They're popular around here.

Sorry, I was browsing BKW for a while today and couldn't resist.

Here's my new rig. The fit is pretty dialed. Will more than likely drop the stem in a couple weeks. The wheels are temporary.

I love the new Antares saddle...it's the best on the market IMHO. The frame and fork have never been ridden...just happen to be a year old or so. SRAM Red is great as always. The RotoR Q-Rings are like cheating...I love them and swear by them. I recommend them for all types of riders.

Also...will have Tacx cages added tomorrow.

Hi,

Updated my TT bike:



* Used Zipp 909 disc from ebay (Seller didn't mention that it had a dent in the rim surface. Rim is out of true but not unrideable. )
* New Hed 3C from ebay -- nice and true
* "Illegal" Hed Vantage 8 bars
* Thomson Masterpiece seatpost

Rode the bike today and already changed the stem from the adjustable Ritchey to a 73 Ritchey Pro -- the bars were a little low.

The bike weighs in at about 19.5 lbs.

So hot. Why did you change out the classic seatpost? Was it a Campy Chorus from the 80's?

Hi,

My older seatpost was a SunTour Superbe Pro from the mid-1980s. I bought the Thomson because I needed a zero setback post for my reworked position.

Of course I probably need more reworking than my position.

Thanks. I thought that was really cool to have continuity between all of your bikes. I'm sad to see the Superbe go (as I recall those were one of the better seatpost designs, right?)

It looks like you could fit the brake behind the fork on that baby. Have you tried it? You could probably shave .02 seconds off your 20k time.

Interesting. I didnt't think Niobium rims could handle the tension of the CX-Rays.

How does the tension of cx-rays differ from any other spoke? I don't get it.

So, I don't really race (hence the relatively upright position, but I'm working on that), but I was told I should post this here anyway. New De Rosa King 3. Did the first ride this morning. So sweet:
