I haven't heard anything definitive yet. They likely won't announce it for a long time.

Dont mind the wheelset or FRS. Though this will hardly EVER see the street, I thought a street wheelset would benefit me on the days when I can't help but ride it around for a little while! Carbon wheelset is in the making.

My bike looks ancient compared to some of the bikes in here.

Thanks, it made sense to just buy new. Picking up my SRM tomorrow or the next day. Then it's time to build!

I'm always impressed by how good Dolans look in real life. That is a great bike.

Building it up now. Got the hook on some new scattos bars and a fizik saddle for $375 total. When I went to Paypal to pay the seller, realized I had $300 sitting in that account. Haven't used PayPal in YEARS! So that was a killer surprise. SRM and will be using my old Mavic Ellipse wheels until I win the lottery at which point I will start shopping for some better race wheels, although my coach has a set he has offered to loan me if I ever need to.

Sweet. That's like finding $300 in a winter coat that you put on for the first time of the season. Such a great feeling.

looking forward to the upcoming season at the DLV. now that I've invested in a nice bike I will HAVE to make it down to ride every week!

bought the frame off of craigslist, then swapped some vintage stuff with my mechanic at the LBS for some modern stuff which helped me put it together. Just needs some better pedals (asking for spd-sl's for christmas! lol) and I'm set! might also build up a lighter wheelset too.

Spicer 60cm frameset, DA crank, Mavik cpx33 wheels, specialized elites, still looking for some quality drops. A fellow cyclist is letting me tag along to our local track for its first real ride, can't wait!

Edit: wrong picture, let me try this...

Went from Deda Pistas and a 120mm affixed to a mountain of spacers to this. Going to try out compact road drops in due time, though.

Thanks!

Good eye spotting the hubs. Those are Zipp 404 tubular rims.

That's what I figured they were...look stiff with how short those spokes are.

Not sure. I didn't commission the build. I got them from the guy who had them built.

A minor point on the great build, but I think the Zen is one of the few rings that look good on an SRM
