Cool Pics TP! How do you keep a decent power with such a low position?!?

New bike looks great, and I won't tell anyone about the disc despite the mavic sponsorship 8)

It's a combo of:

- working hard at it in training

- keeping it in mind throughout the race

- luck. Jumped on the old bike, didn't change the super low position the previous owner (my coach) had it in and simply adapted to it :lol:


As for the wheel... :wink:

WOW Nomad----that looks like something Captain Picard would be trying out on the Holodeck. :shock:

And it would make Jim Kirk flash this sign :up: for Scotty


Beautiful design work!!!

Cheers Dragon :) It took ages to find the matching colour Pro Missile bars in my size. So worth it though!

Your Scott does look good. Not much drop or not much seatpost. It looks like you could have used a size down?

We played around for ages with sizing and this is the set up that felt the most comfortable, despite the lack of seat pole. The fitter blamed my rock-climber's upper body :s

That's a very nice TM01! I always love the black and red colours and the aggressive frame. It looks like some sort of fighter jet.

Here's my P3 decked out for the local 11-mile time trial:

aftereffector: tri?

Here's mine, ready for a flat 10 km today. Weighing in at 8000 grams, including pedals, SRM and timing chip ;-)
I'll swap the heavy Gossamer brakes for some DA 7900 I have from one of my old bikes.. also running an Ultegra chain and a 105 cassette, there should be more to gain.

Seat not level in this picture, I just straightened it up :-)

Yep, I dabble in multisport though I really can't swim. I use a torpedo bottle and sometimes a behind-the-seat bottle for anything requiring hydration, but otherwise I try to keep the setup clean.

I have no idea what the P3 weighed in that picture, but I'm sure it was a lot - the Ventus bars and Zipps are not particularly lightweight!
