    This is my new bike, I still have to pick up a set of race wheels but won't need them until the St. Anthony's race in April so I have time to shop.

    Dude I gotta ask ya about the STI /Horns set up? does that work for you ? Looks weird? can you shift well? I was debating a similar set up but figured it would not work ? Please let me know..

    If your talking about mine, it brakes extremely well compared to when they were attached to the drops because of the leverage. Shifting is a bit annoying, but plenty functional. If you have higher end STI shifters I would imagine it would be much less cumbersome. Mine is sora shifters so they don't have the paddles under the brake levers, just clickers on the inside. As it is, up shifting is easy, but down shifting I have to reach; if you use the other variety (with paddles under the brake levers) it should be easy either way.

    It was a bit of a pain to get the cable routing perfect, but other than that setup was pretty easy. Wish I could shift without moving one of my arms out of the aero bars, but it will do for now.

    I can get you some better pictures if you need, and feel free to question away.

    My Tri Bikes

    Hey Ė so hereís my tri collection . . .

    Ď07 Felt DA . . . is so amazing. Some minor upgrades on the Vuka bars, and swapping to flat/straight extensions over the winter. Also going to install upgraded crankset Ė VumaQuad full carbon with ceramic bearings. The VumaQuad is absolutely incredible Ė had the set on another bike to test out Ė the BB30 ups the stiffness, yet, with the 4-arm spider and hollow carbon arms, the whole thing is unbelievably lightweight, and the ceramic bearings spin so much better than anything else Iíve ever tried.DASmall.pdf DAAngleSmall.pdf VumaSmall.pdf

    Ď07 Giant Trinity Alliance A1 is my hard work trainer Ė indoor & out. Its perfect for me Ė set up to be a bit more relaxed in the aero position with higher bars, but duplicates the Feltís 78-degree seat angle, and the head angle, so Iím always working it the same way. You can see this in the ďpairedĒ photo. With the higher/easier aero position I can go on really long training rides or work the indoor trainer for a couple of hours much more comfortably. Also, Iím not concerned about trashing the wheels or crashing/laying down the Trinity, whereas doing that to the DA would hurt bad.TrinitySmall.pdf DATrinitySmall.pdf

    Also just picked up a wireless PowerTap and two readout mounts, so Iíll be working with watts this winter and carrying that over outside next season.PowerTapSmall.pdf

    And hereís my winter build project . . . well, actually one of them, since Iíve currently got 13 frames sitting around until I find inspiration & time. But this Colnago Master time trial frame qualifies as a tri bike, so it goes on this thread. Iíll have everything together sometime this winter to make it whole. Trying to stay all-Italian, but weíll see. Got 4 or 5 Colnago panto stems, so Iíll be swapping around as I dial in the fit. Yea, I know that Kinesis fork ainít even close to Italian, but it is fín hot (decals are coming off), and there arenít many 650 forks you can say that about. But, just in case I feel the need, Iíve got a great carbon bladed 650 fork as back-up. (Fork angle looks too steep in pic since it isnít properly attached to frame.) Also gotta decide if Iím using the Campy Delta brakes, or those awesome Campy graphite Athenas. Seatpost wonít be hanging that far out Ė just havenít prepped & cleaned inside the frame so I donít want to slam the post in yet. Anyway, lots of chopping, threading, prepping & other details to tend to, but looking forward to the build.NagoSmall.pdf GroupSmall.pdf DeltaSmall.pdf AthenaSmall.pdf RearDerSmall.pdf StorikaSmall.pdf

    Interesting Handlebars

    I was thinking about doing the same. How did you attach the brake levers to the handle bars. Some more detailed pics would be nice. Did you cut the bars or are those bull horn bars?

    That is creative.

    Here is another alternative setup. Since my training routes require me to be on the horns about 50% of the time, this configuration gives me a good control center that is also reachable while on the aerobars.

    Old School Steel

    This is my Tri bike. New Shimano Tri shoes rubber banded in place and ready to roll. Just waiting until the roads turn black again. I'm new to Triathlon and will do a few Sprints this summer. I got started because of the bike. I bought a used road bike last year - Dave Scott Ironman model from 1988, It was such a cool bike, I learned so much about it on the C&V forum and who Dave Scott is that I had to put it back into competition. This is actually the 2nd Ironman I have. The first is getting rebuilt to stock specs. They weigh about 22 lbs and have a geometry setup that eases the load on your arms - important after a 2 mile swim. A little old and has logged a lot of miles but still rolling along pretty well (like me!)

    My mom found this old poem/essay that I wrote in 3rd grade.

    "If I was in charge of the world there would be no school and no bedtime. Bikes would be free, and you would get to race on them everyday. There would be no sisters and no brothers to tie up race money. Everyone would have just one kid, and nothing would cost money, for me at least."

    The only thing that could make it look better is a few less decals, and maybe a faired front brake

    You think some of the decals should be smaller? I just think their should be fewer myself. But to each his own.

    2003 Kestrel KM40 Airfoil

    This is my custom built 2003 Kestrel KM40 AirFoil Triathlon/Time Trial Bike. The frame is a 52cm carbon fiber w/ Kestrel Pro 650c bladed carbon fork with Dura Ace bar end shifters, Ultegra cranks/derailleurs, HED DEEP rear 650c tubular, HED Jet front 650c tubular, carbon bladed seatpost, Flite saddle, XLab rear bottle/gadget holder. The frame color is called Black Fade where certain areas are black and some are bare carbon fiber. During the time I had this built, the frame only came in two sizes, 52cm and 56cm. I ride a 2001 55cm Lemond Buenos Aires traditional 853 Reynolds frame and a 54cm Steel Single Speed bike. The shop was able to build this 52cm to fit me like a glove .

    I only raced it in 2003 and 2004 since work took priority from 2005 to present. I have thought of selling it but have to admit I hate the thought of ever parting with it . This was my dream build that I planned and saved for 3 whole years. I'm in my 40's now and maybe I'll do some short duathlons this year.

    My P3C

    Here's my P3C - I've had the frame for a few months but just finished the build. Only ridden on the trainer as yet.. Centaur Carbon Ergo Shifters, Shimano XTR rear deraileur, Dura-Ace front DER, 11-32 x 56T/39T

    @joevella: That is the weirdest set-up I have ever seen on a P3C... Care to explain? Do the Campy Ergos even work properly with the XTR & DA? 11-32 x 56T/39T sounds like you can't make up your mind, is it a Tri-machine or a MTB?

    it works - you need to provide the 1.5:1 cable pull ratio between shimano and campy ( I use a small lever - but you can use a "shimangler") . we have a lot of hills. There is no road within 20 km where you can stay in a single gear for more than a few seconds.

    You need a long cage der to clear the 32 gear on the back - the xtr is extremely light, and a beautiful piece - the very top of their mountain line. Works as smooth or better than any dura-ace part.
