Yeah, the deal is so good that it didn't make sense to go aluminum.

Of course, this bike was developed with Ivan Dominguez, who sprints from the hoods

WR gets an aero bike. The competition shudders. The kilometer looks even more blurry.

WR, that Fuji with your 32 hole 3x wheels is like putting a snowplow on a Ferrari, but I look forward to seeing it.

Maybe he'll get a deal on an aero front wheel!

I've already contacted Psimet for parts, but haven't been able to move on the deal yet. It's going to be a 24h XR-300 with aero spokes. That will help a bit.

Ugh.

WR, this is your new to buy list:

Aero front wheel.
Disc Cover (I think you have one).

Race with the aero front and the disc cover for all the crits you have. It'll be baller.

Maybe.

But it might just make the kilometer look even blurrier than before. Hell, P123 crits might be fun too

Heh, I have a set of 32h XR300's on th way. I have 32h XR270's already.

I hate flexy wheels, and I hate non bomb proof wheels.

OMG!! I love Sevens bikes. The pro that trains with my club in the off-season rode these bikes. Now she rides a Fuji (they sponsor her team). WR is right on track.

This was taken last year, but it looks roughly the same. Instead of Spinergys, it's a set of HEAVY Bontrager RXLs with a PowerTap. Not sure if I'm going to get some race wheels before the season starts

Working on a TT rig for this year. Cheap aluminum Cervelo is the basis.

Really nice actually. BB stiffness is exceptional. In comparison the head tube is not quite as rigid, the fork crown and legs on the other hand are VERY stiff, making for a very nice front end.
