It is already explained in the post above...

The picture makes it look odd. Look at the other side of the bars.

Didnt know people are so judgmental on this forums.

The bike is bone stock. I havent felt the need to shorten the fork, and the stem came with the bike but i already explained that is has been swapped out.


And also what riding position might be comfortable for you is not for everyone. What if i could put laps on you with that stem and bar angle?

This is the first MASH I've seen used on a track. Kinda makes me happy! How's it handle on the track?

I would love to see a picture of you sitting or riding your bike to see what type of position you're in when in the drops.

Here are some detail shots of the Cervelo so people can see the uniqueness to the frame, such as the downtube and bottom bracket area.

i'm not throwing you any hate, because your bike is nice and i do like it, but how is it unique? it's like every modern aluminum race frame with aero tubing. it's stiff and thick where it needs to be. i raced a 20 lap scratch on my teammate's t1 and it's hefty, substantial and stiff. really the only things aesthetically i don't like about the frame itself are the awkwardly (to me) beefy chainstays and downtube and the head tube gusset. but again, that's just subjective as far as looks.

joker8baller 06-21-10 01:13 PM

That Cervelo is realllly nice looking. I like it a lot.

Terrible_one: I've never used another bike for the track, so I can't really do any comparisons? I really like how it handled though, felt like I was in control, and perfect for my sprinting ability... Going to the track justified all the paychecks I sunk into the bike..

Comparing it to all the other aluminum track frameset I've owned in the past, such as a Pista Concept, Cannondale Major Taylor, Guerciotti Scratch and Shadow, Chesini La Resistenza, Cinelli Mash.... I think the T1 is surely more unique in it's design over all those other mid-range track frames. For only a couple hundred bucks more for the T1, you get a full carbon fork, a carbon seatpost, carbon headset, and some features on the frame that set it's aero-ness and stiffness above all the rest. I really feel it's one of the best aluminum framesets out there today, when you compare it side-to-side with all other aluminum mid-range frames.

why the saddle change?

Baby Puke 06-24-10 08:34 PM

gt35built, to be fair, this is a pretty unusual looking set up. Your saddle is pointed down and you have a very short stem. Not at all saying it's "wrong", but do you have any pictures of you on the bike?

gt35built 06-25-10 10:36 AM

Seat change because I ride the bike to the shop i work at. To explain further..... its more comfortable.

No pics of me on the bike. Could get some if it would make you guys sleep better.

one wicked looking anchor

there were your usual ftps and concepts, but this race included masters class from people all over the place so a fair number of bts, blue, teyamayer(sp) and carbon teschners as well. and more felt tk1's than i expected too.
