My new aero bike :twisted:

But seriously, i have never tried any aero bikes before so really looking forward to it.

Build might not be the most exciting but i will tweak from time to time.

Should be up and running by next week.

For now, here is a teaser.

R136a1 is brighter than the Sun (our local star), and given its size and the amount of energy associated with a star that large there is a strong possibility that tachyons (particles traveling faster than the speed of light) would be somewhat related. :D

That said, that's a damn bright frameset, is this a Project One order?
Looking forward to how you'll be finishing it off.


Don't mess up. :evil:


No, but seriously: don't mess up. We're all watching.
No pressure.


:lol:

Looking forward to seeing how you finish it off.

Check out the orange Fizik bar tape and orange/black DMC shoes for color match if you go all out retina punch.


EDIT: DMC shoes not Giro....

Yup. M9 and P1 order.

The paintjob is stunning. I spent what seems like eternity playing with the P1 configurator and was all set for a more subtle scheme but decided last moment to try something ballsy. I generally prefer understated scheme's a little more but am glad i took the plunge on this.

Due to the M9's integrated nature, you don't actually have too much creativity when it comes to speccing everything up. A lot of the choices are made for you already.

Only thing i am tossing up is the wheelset choice. I am thinking bora one 50's atm but am considering a set of fernweg clinchers as well.

Here are some more pics.

This is a TREK I like! Beautiful paint job. Could you post a picture of the head tube?

Fernwegs would be a waste on that bike. Boras are the better choice. Personally I'd go with something handbuilt.
