Hi Guys,

I've been lurking for a while before my first post.

Here's my Wave Emotion. I've managed to get it just how I've always wanted it over the last few weeks. Weighed it today with a cheap set of scales and it came to just under 6kg (5.7 on the dodgy scales), or around the 13lb mark which I guess tallies with the 900g frame weight, but I'm taking it with a pinch of salt until I use more accurate means. It included cages, pedals and computer so not too shabby. 8)

I hope you all like it as much as I do although I know some people don't like the naked carbon look. There aren't too many of these around here, well certainly another here in England that I've seen.

It rides like dream (my dream anyway). It’s very direct/stiff with great power transfer and climbs like a mountain goat. (I will take a few pictures of my Di2 equipped TT bike and get it on here soon hopefully.) :)

Welcome. Looks like you need some help with the image links:




Thanks Taz! I edited out your image links as I had just fixed them in the OP's post (I believe we posted more or less at the same time). Hope you don't mind. PP

Welcome on the board. I edited your image tags so that they would appear in your post.

That is one nice looking ride, BTW.

Nice looking bike! :thumbup:
That saddle is whack! Is there a theory behind it--would be interested in reading about the design.

Thanks for the nice comments guys and to the moderators for making the pics come up better. I love the bike but I'm biased of course. I always felt held back by my bikes before this one and now I'm currently trying to turn my 'V6 engine into a V8' to make up for it.

The Adamo saddle is a love it / hate it thing. Personally I love it and have them on all of my bikes. Although your sit bones take a couple of rides to get used to it, you never get chaffage again, which means no more saddle sores ever. It's particularly good to have on a TT bike, especially long distance races, as it lets you get a long way forward on the saddle ('on the rivet') without it becoming uncomfortable.

Cheers

Wow, this is a crazy looking frame.

Would love to hear some more on it. And the wheels too.
