Some beautiful TT bikes there.
Bought this TT bike start of 2011. Agron 18 e112, 105 shifters etc, Oval a900 carbon bars with carbon extensions, Dura ace cranks, Rotor Q ring, Token 85mm front wheel & FFWD disc.
Plan on upgrading from 105 to ultegra or DA and a matching FFWD front wheel.

I had fsa carbon 172.5 cranks on, then wanted 175's. Bought these second had and thought they looked awful with the black rotor q ring. So I got them sprayed black. Not very WW but I think it looks good.

Can't find a photo of mine not in use but this is a nice photo of it about to win the welsh team pursuit open champs
Fairly standard planet x, with corima wheels, strong light cranks, nitto bars and bontrager extensions. None of those heavy bits for gears or slowing down so weighed in about 7.2kg usually

Are you referring to the derny in the picture?

How do you find the Planet X track frame? Compared to other bikes you have ridden? I recently purchased the same frameset to build up as my pursuit bike and am therefore interested in your opinion.

My road TT bike is an old Cervelo Alloy P3. Once I get around to making changes (new disc, Simkin Egg brakes and swapping back to Ski bend extensions) I'll post it up. Though nowhere as nice as all the builds above, it does the job...

I found it great for team sprint, kilo and pursuits plus general track league use
Watch the seatpost slipping

I switched to an alien which fits better but rides worse, and have used a dolan df3 which different class but 3x the price!

You'll love it. More importantly for this site it's nice and light

Andreszucs - great build, I love it. The proposed changes look great, particularly the Trek decals.
