Here's the latest upgrade on the rear wheel and hydration system... Zipp 900 is wicked and helps me achieved a higher speed but have to crank it up real hard to feel the advantage. This is my first disc rear and the sound of the 900s going over uneven roads is like riding on cardboard wheels... it lets out a 'hollow' kind of knocking sound whenever you go over small pebbles etc. Looks filmsy though i will very much prefer a more sturdy disc rear like the Pro-Lite Pedova (much heavier though).

Inflating the tire of the 900s is a nightmare. you need to hold the valve adapter and the wheel in one hand and use the other hand to pump it up. I call up ZIPP and ask for a better way to do it but they say that is the only way... It will be better if they could cut the access hold bigger like REYNOLDS, PRO-LITE etc etc and that will do away the adapter.

Price are very ZIPP... expensive IMO but it's a hell of a wheel. Infact i feel the pain whenever im looking at it and cant forget how much it cost me but when im riding on it the pain just magically disappear............ amazing....

Nice... I wonder how many times this scenario plays out because it certainly sounds familiar. I have swapped/traded/bought items in my bike stable within my "hobby budget". I kicked off this budget by selling a Jeep.

Just ordered this puppy earlier tonight from one of our forum sponsors. Great price. They pretty much gave away the frame for the cost of the components. Has all Rival except for the shifters which are Force. It will be awhile until they ship it, so I'm going to try to get them to put on T2+ S-bars instead of the shown T1+ J-bars.

I don't do tri as I don't swim or run. Got it for those times when I'm road riding and I just want to hammer for a half hour or so. Maybe the occasional ITT, as later this year I enter a new age group. If I do enter a competition, I'll use my Dura-Ace C-24 wheels for the time being.

Here's my girl, like me, she's old but she's in great shape! This photo was taken right after I bought her. I've since lowered the handlebars, removed the seat post water bottle cage and installed a conventional cage on the frame seat tube, put a Garmin on her, and changed the saddle to a Bontranger tri saddle. She's a 50 cm, 650c bike - small, but then so am I!

Great bikes the old alloy P3's. I still race on a non SL P3 and cannot justify upgrading what still rates as a fast frame.

I am just upgrading parts slowly over time. Latest purchases still to fit are a Zipp 900 disc (was still riding on an old Zipp 950), Simkin egg brakes and swapping back out to ski end extensions after a season on s bends.

I ride with aluminum, I have a Specialized roubaix expert compact 2011 and it's all carbon and to be honest the weight, feel, and handling of my bike is better than the Specialized.
