Yup, got almost the exact same thing as my training/flat ride bike (size M). Athena with Zondas and if it's gonna get competitive, my Reynolds DV3KT's from my good bike.

Nice ride and suprisingly comfy when I'm running the Zonda tubeless set up.

I was surprised at how comfy it is, and how fast. Like you, I got mine for training. I got the opportunity to get a Noah frame (so decided that all else would go except my steel Pina), so needed a trainer with the same geo. My last couple of years of racing before I become a pure leisure rider.

They're far better looking in the flesh than in pics.

Nice!

Just as you've picked up a Phaeton R as a trainer to match your Noah, I'm looking to pick up an Icarus SLS as a trainer (and commuter) to match my Helium. Really wish Ridley would sell the Icarus SLS as a frameset only :roll:

Cheers,
