    Old skewl baby..



    It's an older Calfee that I bought for $500; it had some odd parts on it (giant upraised stem, drop bars, etc.) so it was cheap. A set of Vision base bars w/brakes ($70 at www.chucksbikes.com), a short stem, and a set of $200 Rev-x wheels later, and it's rockin' and rollin'.

    Kendall,
    Your bike looks sweet! Where did you get SpinerG's for 200 bucks?

    I scrounge the classifieds here, on www.slowtwitch.com, and I look on Ebay. These came from a guy on Slowtwitch.

    That's the cool thing about 650 wheels; lots of people are moving away from them and you can pick up deals if you are patient. I just bought a rear 650c wheel with a Powertap hub for this bike for $150. I need another install kit and then I'll be able to use my PT Pro on both the road bike and the tri bike.

    About the aero frames vs not so aero..

    I think the time trial bikes are designed that way because the 'aero position' is really only effective in speeds above about 25 mph. On a TDF climbing leg, you're probably not doing that a lot of the time so it becomes less important. Then the weight becomes more of an issue as well as things breaking. However, on a TT you may be doing 30-35 the majority of the race.

    **I think**

    here is a pic mine. In a sea of red, black and silver in the transition area, it is a lot easier to see her.

    This is not quite right. Most windtunnel testing suggests that anytime you are going above 14 mph you should be in your aero position because the decreased wind resistance is significant. Plus, your average ironman pro is more in the 22.5mph-25mph range and I guarantee the aero position helps them a bit.

    Though you are correct that they are designed for the aero position and that the aero position has it time and place, mostly triathlons and TTs.

    30-35??? sounds a bit fast for any distance to me.

    Dave Zabriskie's time trial in the 2005 TdF was an average speed of 54.676km (or 34 mph). Yeah, that's a bit fast, I'd say.

    Finally got pix of the tri bike. It's my former commuter, rain trainer, and magic gear fixie: an REI Novara Trionfo. I put on Profile bullhorns and Syntace aerobars. I kept the Ultegra brifters and just mounted them on the bullhorns. Looks a little wonky but works just fine. Supercomfy and well-broken-in Selle Italia Flite saddle on a Profile forward seatpost to replicate that tri-bike geometry. Rolf wheels.

    Well, still no pictures of MY bike, but here is a picture of the same bike. I haven't upgraded anything on the bike but put the KEO Carbon Pedals on & a Polar CS 2000 on. So you get the idea. Maybe that will help with your boring work day.......maybe not though.

    Question: I'm working from memory here, but is this the same bike (or bike company) that Dave Scott rode in the 1995 Ironman in Kona?

    Updated, borrowed wheel for race. Only change left is the crank, KCNC, 740 grams with BB, outboard bearings, aluminum which I got for $120(same weight as Dura Ace, I consider it a steal).

    That's a class rig there, and it's getting more unique every day. I'll be darned if I'd buy a Cervelo, I'd never find it in the transition area.

    I dig the flames on the fork on your rig but the downtube flames are going the wrong way, it makes you look like your haulin in reverse

    My Caliente as is ridden for up to Olympic distance (no tubular and only one bottle cage), and with 303s front and rear is around 15.75 pounds and with my new crank. HalfIM setup as shown, ~17.5-18.5 pounds

    bike weight

    well, that really sucks. I weighed my bike the other day and was disappointed to see 23 lb.
    I don't know what gives. I have ultegra brakes, crank, BB and front derailleur( I have a long cage rear derailleur for my alpine gearing). Ritchey Aero bars. Ritchey carbon seat post, carbon spinergy wheels, carbon Aero fork, Aluminum aero frame ( leader 730R ). STi shifter, one bottle cage. Vittoria 23C's Why does it weigh so much?? I have a crummy seat, as I've been waiting for my Selle Azoto Tri to show up for about a month now at my LBS. good thing I paid for it in advance...

    A combination of the above build kit, but the frame and fork would be the biggest contributor.

    The frame didn't feel like 4 lb. If I threw the rest of it on the scale it would still weigh more than some of your bikes. there's not that much difference between dura-ace and ultegra.. Is it my Carbon parts that are the boat anchor?? I thought the spinergy's were pretty light?
