I thought that I would post about my new and sort of new builds and paint for my tt/tri and road builds. I have found a few pictures of the bikes in stock form so these are what they look like stock.
SLC (1190g frame only) - This will be all black now. The main triangle will have as much exposed carbon on the three main tubes. The joint areas as well as the rear triangle will all be painted black. The only lettering on the bike will be the Cervelo on the down tube. I would like to try to run my cables in a more aero fashion if possible on this build which migh be the only changes made to it current form.
P2K (1440g frame only) - This will be all black as well. No surprise I am sure. I have decided to not put any lettering on the down tube but I can do this later if I think it needs something. The forks that I have do not have any lettering on them. I have bought some new Simkin's aero brakes (300g for the pair) and have some very nice items for this build. There are a few items that I might change out. I was thinking about picking up a lighter aero fork but AERO must trump weight on this build and the Cervelo fork would be more aero than an Easton EC90 Aero but the Easton would be 200g lighter. I need a 1" steerer. Was also thinking about new aerobars but the HED clip-lites with Vision levers and base bar are pretty light already at 635g.
Both bikes will have the crank arms sanded down (FSA Carbon) to have a nice clean look.
There will be some lettering on individual parts but I think that I might try to sand down the Sram RED rear derailleur carbon parts and maybe remove the red on the end of the shifters as well.
So these are my projects for this winter.
