Didn't you just buy it, or was that someone else?

Almost finished building up my new TT bike. I really only bought a new frame and moved my stuff over to it. Extra Small Specialized Transition (size 48 cm). Easton attack bar, Zipp 404 powertap rear with wheelbuilder cover, blackwell 100 mm front rim custom built with cx-ray spokes to an American Classic hub, etc.

Hi,

What kind of stem is that? It looks like a Profile. If so, which model? TIA.

The fit is so weird looking, but you look so good on the bike.

The bike is sexy looking though, even with the slammed saddle and the weird stem setup.

well unlike shimano and campy, sram shifters are exactly the same mechanically, just different materials and maybe shapes on this years. no difference in rival shifters vs red shifters except they are alot lighter.

zero loss on the rd is red only. And as far as campy goes, ultrashift ****ters are compatible enough that spares are interchangeable across all lines, the only mechanical difference between a veloce and super record shifter is the indexing disc, functionally speaking.

Is the next step in TTing helmets with cameras and monitors in them, so that you can face down but still see forward?

I love this thing. It has not failed me yet this season. I have been racing with my PT wheels, but the Reynolds are sexier. I am getting a PT hub laced into them soon as well.

Enjoy.

Oh **** yeah. My new favorite!

BTW I wouldn't ride over too many bumpy roads with those water bottles cages because they aren't very good at retaining bottles over bumpy curves/turns
