ahh sorry to hear about the time off the track

I think it's going to be my next ride, I really like the build and geometry. Wish they were a little less spotty with communication, but can't have everything

Noticed quite a few in use at the British Nationals recently.

Awesome, any chance you can measure the reach and/or effective toptube length? The geometry on their site does not check out, for example M (regular reach):
417 Reach
494 Stack
532 Eff TT
74.5 ST Angle
Either the Eff TT is really longer, or the ST Angle is really steeper (like old bike), or reach is really shorter, etc.

The geo for the old bike they have adds up correctly:
Old Bike: Trax Worx:

ex, M:
417 Reach
494 Stack
536 Eff TT
76.5 ST Angle

Thanks!

Awesome, thanks for confirming! Yeah if stack and reach are good, then STA/Eff-TT don't really matter. Looking through all the sizes: assuming stack, reach, and STA are correct, I get an Eff-TT of +22mm for every size. Ex: M would be 554, not 532. I'm guessing they didn't include one of the tube radius's for their calculation.

New gearing for F200s. I'm running 60x13 for my max gear on a good day. I'm in purgatory waiting on tires/new front five-spoke, so don't judge me .

Velo Flyer bars or crazy Velobike bars that cost more than the rest of the bike?

Cost more than the bike? Do you mean the frame? Not sure why that is relevant but ok.

Velobike...did not pay retail FWIW.

A couple of pictures of a recently acquired Tom Kellogg/Jeff Duser built, 2008 Spectrum frame that previously underwent minimal track fray, originally commissioned by Lane DeCamp.





And the T4 Cervelo has seen a few upgrades since last posted, the Vision TFA Pro extensions are now cut to be Article 1.3.023 UCI legal.
