Due to others requesting me to post on this forum page after seeing my article featured on TriRig.com last year, I am including a couple pictures of my bike as well as a little information. You can see more pictures on my blog listed below. Comments are always welcome as this bike is always a work in process. This is what it started off this season looking like. It is a standard 2011 model with a few updates

This is way tricked out. I suppose you could start with the saddle. Custom right?

Also saw this on tri rig, all mod's done by the owner. Custom carbon fairing on top tube to hide cabling into frame, which was expected to save 4 watts And a custom chainring cover. Surprised you didn't add all the detailed shots that were used on tri rig.

Yes, the saddle is custom as well as most of the other parts that look like they are not a standard part. The saddle is currently being updated to include a little padding, it is not so easy to ride for a long time on right now. The design cleans up the area around the saddle as well as meeting the UCI 240mm minimum length requirement.

I'd love to see some close-ups of the water bottle, saddle, and Power Tap mount. They are all really slick.
