@Cortonivis

long distance racing are races that are qualified as medium distance or long distance such as:

Ironman: 3.8S-180B-42.2R
Ironman 70.3: 1.9S-90B-21.1R
3OD: 4.0S-120B-30R
Powerman: 16.2R-62.4B-8.1R

so the longer distances in triathlon and duathlon. and yes I carry a lot of water with me; on trainings this is enough for 100km, if more, I need to make a refuel stop. I'm used to use a lot of water; in hot (indoor) conditions I can use 3Liter in 2 houres of training/teaching (groupclasses instructor)

@Luc
needed to to get a dictionary for that word; it means "geweldig" I think? or are you coming from the french part of Belgium?

But why have you badged your HED 3C's as "Dura Ace"?

This was a standard Giant frame in the mid-1990's. A Chapman design I guess. Very nice!

sorry for the late reply :)

@Skillganon
the frame is from 2000 (last serie of the MCR which was introduced by the ONCE team in around 1998 in theTdF. Components are from 2000 to 2006 (the T2+ are the newest aerobars in the Profiel Design range)

The HED. 3c are badged with DA and IM stickers because they where without any stickers when I bought them. This gives a great effect when the wheels are turning (HED. 3c stickers will be ther soon on it also, on the 3rd spoke)

I build it up the way I think a Tri-bike has to be: aero, fast and powerfull. The other MCR's I have seen on pictures are terrible build op, missing the looks, the right parts and the right ridersposition. Benefit is also, it's exclusive and getting also a lot of possitive reactions from people :) . ok; is a bit heavy (9kg in this config) but it doesn't feel like that; on the hills its very quick, especially when teh stiff HED.3 wheels are mounted. you're passing a lot of people (and that with a TT bike and a 44/21 as minimum gearing :wink:

@Timo
its a design from Mike Burrows :) but the UCI rejected it very soon so it can only be used in triathlons.

I'm not sure I like the frame, I think that you either love or hate it. But it is very special, credit for that!

I have that saddle too! I love it, it is so comfy and dries reallu quickly when you put a wet a$$ on it.

The rack on the back of the saddle. Could you take closer pics of that?

again, late.

It's a cheap-ass rack from Roseversand, but very solid (I broke a lot of tacx aquaracks)
