Looks very good. Wheels match the purpose and the looks, well.

Nice!

Love the aggressive front end.

How do you find the FFWD hoops?

Need to match tubs pls!

The FFWD have been great, no problems at all. Very good price/quality ratio. The tubulars are different brands because the rear Veloflex Carbon exploded and I switched to Conti Comp, gonna put a Competition at the front when I wear the Veloflex out.

Awesome - always loved the look of the S2 and those wheels finish it off nicely.

Well done !

I hope you don't mind if I use that as my wallpaper for a while :thumbup:

I also have your Garmin mount on the S2. ;) I first had the aluminum S1 but the frame cracked under the seatpost collar and I got the carbon version from warranty since they don't make the S1 any more.

Veloflex Carbon exploded today after 22 ½ months (mostly just racing), the tubulars are now matched. :)

@VPR: Little clarification...what do you mean by 'exploded'...?

There was a big piece of rock that shredded the tire and emptied it with a loud bang.

Looks great!

The Cervelo S2/3T/Tilquist Garmin mount combo seems popular!
