Buy a set of Fibre-Lyte aero rings for the inner and outer. They are so strong when solid and do not weigh much at all. Even better yet, if you can remove the spider and send it too them they will make you custom aero rings for your cranks and they will be an exact fit.

@jekyll man: saddle is a dash stage 9
@BmanX: Those chainrings look amazing! Thanks for recommendation! Look expensive, hope i can make them plausible to my wife! ;-)

yes, actually, chain should be shortened. but on this bike, inner ring is used seldom if ever.

I learned a long time ago to buy everything in black and have it shipped to work so that it just shows up on the bike in black and no one every notices.I was adding black bikes to the equation and she never noticed. Was hard when it got up to 10 bikes however.

First time poster. The bike will get it's own thread because it'll be a longterm project, but for now I wanted to show it here!

It's another BMC TimeMachine, bog standard TM02, with some upgrades: handlebars upgraded to PRO Missile EVO, wheels are FLO 90+Disc, brake levers 3T's and saddle is an Adamo Prologue. Had a Tririg Omega on it, but for me the braking wasn't good enough.. It looked pretty though..
Unfortunately the pictures show it as it was half way last season, right before I figured out the seat was too high..

And me on it during my last race of the season, after I dropped the saddle a whopping 5cm..! Weight like shown is 8.9kg/19.6lbs

After competing in several stage races last season and getting whooped up on in the TT's on my road bike I knew that I could justify a budget build before this season's stage races... So here she is. I already had the wheelset and cassette. Everything else was pieced together with price in mind, but durability and comfort also. Thanks to some closeouts on the drivetrain, and getting the Zipp components at cost, I was able to build the entire bike up for $1045, frame set included!!!
It's a several year old Guru Magis that had been built up but never ridden, and looks pristine.
I was pleasantly surprised with the weight of 8.21kg(18.1lbs) as shown. Have added a bottle cage and some grips to the extension since the photos. Need to get a lower stem and cut the steer tube once I'm confident in the fit.

wow, really good price for a beautiful tt-bike. especially the frameset looks extremely lovely.
if you invest in an appropriate wheelset and find the optimum-position, you will be as fast as with any tt-bike, including much more-expensive-ones. :thumbup:

What is the thing on the top tube? That bike would be perfect a matching Campagnolo groupset :)

Stuart, very nice. I assume your racing triathlon looking at your set up and far forward saddle position?
