I have really low HR zones. My Zone 5c is only 166. It freaks people out when look over to see me at 135bpm on hard efforts. It's all relative.

Pretty close to that.

Look 595/808s/SRM/Record.

That said, I'm damned happy with this:


Kane K Team Racing/404s/PowerTap/06 Centaur (soon to be chorus, the centaur is going on the cross bike).

I'm riding my dream bike (still)

But...

I was at the LBS today and saw the new for '08 Felt B2 TT bike and was genuniely impressed. At $3300 retail it's seems to be a pretty good bargain for a carbon monocoque.

I'll have an Argon E112 with Chorus and an Argon Krypton with Chorus pretty soon. Happy enough with those, but if I had my druthers I'd purchase from the fastest man on two wheels, builder of Naked Bicycles.
