That is a very sexy build. I still think it screams a set of Fibre-Lyte custom full aero rings but short of that (you now me), I think this is a dead sexy build. I would love to get a pair of those S-Works cranks for my SLC build and then get custom aero rings for them.


Thank you sir, and the chainrings are temporary. I am probably going to go with Sram TT rings, just because they are relatively inexpensive, and I haven't heard anything bad about them. These FSA ones aren't the best when it comes to shifting, and they are heavy. I would really like full aero Fibre-Lytes, and I might go that route. I just don't want to spend that much money on chainrings.

I have bike building ADD lately. I've been working on this, and my Allez, getting them where I want them. My S2 had a few changes over the winter as well. I need to update the S2 thread soon, and start one on the Allez. I rode the Allez 50miles yesterday, and I was thoroughly impressed by it. I couldn't believe an aluminum bike would ride that well. It wasn't harsh at all, but still felt faster, snappier, and more responsive than my Trek 5200 it replaced.

As for the S works cranks for your SLC. I am told that you can run the mountain version with Lightning/Rotor 3D+/Vuma Quad BB cups. The road version is made to only work with BB30/OSBB width frames. I like the Specialized cranks design a little better than the Lightnings on my S2. Since they are made for a narrower BB shell, there is a bit more ankle clearance on the crank arms. Other than that they are very similar, and the Specialized units are much cheaper. I have not weighed them, believe it or not, but I hear they are a little heavier than the Lightnings.

Thank you gentlemen. AZR3, I'm glad I inspired you. My P3 was my introduction to TT bikes. Those things are like a gateway drug. lol. If you want me to inspire you a budget minded cycling purchase, those new Smartweld Allez, well I can't say enough how much I like mine. I have some purchases in the works for it, that should set it apart, and necessitate a new build thread.

Once this thing actually hits the road. I think I am going to need one of these Alden-Designs Garmin mounts.

It's a problem with the nosecone Shiv. I was hoping the Zipp TT mount would work, but it is too long for the spacing of the Shiv aerobars, and it looked stupid. So I'm going to have to spend more money.
