Unless something changed, I believe a BMC TT02 was on the cards for TT.

Very Nice collection of bikes, only why do the Orbea head-tubes look so big always?
and about what for a TT frame are you thinking? do you keep it like this or?


Head tubes do look big, but they are 60cm frames. On the new Orca it looks less pronounced though...
For TT frame I was thinking a BMC... Or a carbon like the Planet X. The de rosa will be a normal road bike again when I get a TT frame... next year... Have the biggest ever WW purchase coming up next month...

cheers,
erik

I wonder how you justify having that many bikes to yourself?
And how you manage to actually use them all if you're so busy working and spending that much $ ... :roll:

Use the TT bike for... TT's. Race every fortnight, train once more on it the alternate week.
WW bike (07 Orca) - coffee bike/just because I can have one...
Race Bike (o6 orca w/ProLite wheels) - solid lightweight (close to 6.8limit) reliable race bike for... racing
Training BIke (06 orca) - same geometry as my racing bike, but with parts that I am happy to do miles and miles and miles on without costing crazy $$
Cannondale 2.8 - It's great beating guys on the weekend hammer ride on a single speed machine... 53-16 gearing.
EPX mtb - I live near some of the best XC tracks in the world... and love heading out into the forrest and doing the technical stuff... MTBers can't believe I'm a roadie... they all reckon I should stick to and race MTB...

Oh well,
that's my explanation for my bikes. I must say, if I buy a TT frame and build up the de rosa as a road bike - that bike will be excess. Bike for the sake of having a bike. Oh, and I own a Giant TCR carbon that one of our junior riders uses, and a Litespeed Time Trial bike (small) that I have lined up for another junior rider. Share the love, eh!

While we're sharing the love, have you all donated to the 'Give Kids The World' yet?

cheers all,
erik

Not that you needed to validate your purchases, but that last paragraph certainly does. Those are some lucky kids. Good on you.

Thumb up for Erik :thumbup:
good that you help Junior Riders and good to see you give them chance to improve them with supporting them with, letting them borrow your stuff.
Bikes are not cheap,
