Wheels are sick!!! :D

I can not go further back with the Arione and the saddle isn't even within UCI legal setback (5cm)... :roll: I will switch it to Fi'zi:k Aliante I guess.

My team is using Time RXS pedals, but for more fixed feeling in TT's I might just use Shimano's SPD-SL.

Okay, thanks!

I love the front fork... The paint is sooo cool! Have you had a chance to try it yet?

I couldn't try it yet. I'm training on the road bike now.

The paint on the fork is very cool indeed: it's a special paintscheme by Oval Concepts for our team. This paint is not available for customers.

Love the cassette, is this a new prototype!?!?! :lol: Have you thought about trying the arione TT saddle, it seems to be a lot shorter and more confortable, give it a try.

I know your joking about the cassette proto. But I have had someone ask me seriously when the hub system will become available and who makes it along with how it works.
my answers
when:2009 for normal people and the pros are using it now
who: Some advanced high quality german company
how: it works by using thousands of magnets that propel the chain forward causeing less watts to be used so you can go faster.

They believed me :D And told me to call them when the hub system can be ordered.

Back to topic

The wind better be afraid with that bike around to cut it. Can't wait to see it with the xentis tt's

When can we expect to see a write up about the xentis tt wheels including a price and weight?

Also good luck to you during your season and when is the first race?
