It should be a very fast bike. What's the problem about the gears?
52-11 or 53-11 isn't big enough? :o :lol:
If you're talking about the useless 23 and 21 teeth cogs, ok I agree then :wink:

Sharp eyes! :wink: You're right. It's very difficult to find a perfect match with this headset. :? Damn internal headsets!!

Nope. SRM Pro and Campagnolo Record cranks have the same Q-Factor!! :wink:

My Litespeed Blade had some major changes since I am sponsored by Oval Concepts: Bontrager bars and stems are gone, Record brakes as well, the SRM Pro and Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork are sold...

Currently with FSA SRM; that will be changed for an Ergomo.

Brakes by Oval Concepts.
Oval R700 stem.
Oval A900 stock bars.
Fork Oval JetStream.

:thumbup: wow, look awesome!!!!

That oval brakes are so cool, its a pity the fork on my TT-bike is not built for this!

Just one thing I would change: take a stem with 84 degrees, looks better in my opinion cause u don't need so much spacers :wink: !

How many centimeters are u behind the BB with your saddle?

My position is not set on the bike.

In fact I don't need any spacers at all, but I did not cut the fork lenght because I won't ride this bike very often this year (I will try it next week). I will lend it to a team mate for the entire 2007 season; he will be fitted on the bike in wind tunnel in the US later on this month.

It's yours in 2008 if you join our team, Michael! :wink:

Yes, I think that will be my own TT. Not sure when I will build it up. I have some thoughs, but I'm still unsure about what is possible. Austrian TT wheels will sponsor our team, so that's a sure choice. :)
