Looking good. I'm looking at getting a TT bike next year, so it would be good to see more posts like yours. Also it would be nice if you could explain the advantages / dislikes you have about the upgrade components you chose.

You know that having an out of dish wheel will slow you down? Probably not much, but read Jobst Brandt on the topic.

I wonder if the FuelCell is UCI legal. But you could still use it to carry your shopping home from the supermarket there is so much space. Nice bike.

For me Shimano was a better choice because of the Pioneer systen comes only on Shimano and I liked the colour of the 6800 better than the silver black 9000 and weight was not a concern on flat roads. The bracket is still BB68 so that fits shimano HTII better.
Shifting is amazing. I had a mix of 105 and ultegra parts on this bike and had already 6800 on a other bike so I wanted the 2 bikes identical so I can swap the powermeter out.
The FuelCell is not legal but in some non UCI TT I Ride and train with is and have a CO2 pump in it
I thought of dishing the wheel by adjusting the axle or the pads of the frame whitch are thick enough to remove material but honestly I can not see the difference with a 23mm tire. I will try a 20mm tire to see any difference and do someting about it.
If you want to buy a TT bike, make shure that your choice of bike fits. Thats is more important than having the most aerodynamic frame in the world. If it dosn`t fit than the aero is way off. For example I like a low stack height and I can`t get that on a brand like Cervelo. More and more frame brands are building triathlon bikes with way too high stack for short TT`s
I do a TT of 122km every jear and can still sit in that extremely low position but that is not comfortable anymore. For 3 hours it is better to sit a little bit upright like on a Cervelo.
The Zipp stealth bar is great fit wise realy every adjustment is possible only I couldn`t place the extensions as narrow as on my 3T bar.
The Pioneer power meter is the best way to train your pedal stroke and measures 24 times per pedalstroke your force applied on the pedal.

How have you liked the Pioneer power meter?
