I didn't exactly buy this, but I did win it from the week 1 drawing of the Lemond Revolution trainers.

Resistance isn't as much as a fluid trainer, but it's more than adequate for heart rate interval training when I'm not able to get out on the road, after work, classes, etc. Platform isn't as wide as some other trainers, so I can't jump hard into a sprint, but getting a better riser block might help me with that a little as my front end is slipping whenever I try to sprint out of the saddle. Also now I have a trainer to warm up for crits!

I thought you didn't need a riser block with that trainer?

Nice Mixino mdeth!!

I wish they did it matte red. I'd started to think about getting a Whisper Plus in matte red (already have one in White), but might hold off for a bit and see if they increase the colour range.

Doh. I never thought of it that way. Will try it next time.

Thanks fellas.

No, no more "carbonLORD" parts... For now.

I stopped offering my own line last season as there are a lot of manufacturers and the marketplace has changed in just the last 5 years alone.

I moved from Chicago to Amsterdam last May.

While the web site has been in development for some time now and it's primarily because I am still in the process of establishing certain brands for 2014.

I teamed up with Ted Ciamillo earlier this season to offer a carbonLORD edition line featuring the updated cL'ement graphic and all black anodized hardware.

Image

My plan is to work with the several manufacturers I am considering and offer an entire line of carbonLORD edition products.

In the meantime, there is always time for a new build :beerchug:

Selling these (within the next day or two they will be listed in the for sale section)...
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=61797&start=3450#p1000638

Bought these today:

It wasn't cheap, that's for sure, but I supported a local shop.
It was between these and a pair of Fizik R1's - which I think look better - but these are heavenly for my wide feet. Totally stoked.

What size if you don't mind me asking for the DMT's and the Shimano's?

42.5 DMT
42.5 Shimano

Night/Day difference in widths, it's almost like I went to the extremes between two brands, but apparently there are shoes that are even more narrow than DMT, and Shimano has 'wide' versions still (I got the normal, despite needing 'wide' with other brands). The upper on the DMT are forgiving a bit and it does have the BOA-like mechanism, but the Shimano R320s have a very comfortable and soft upper, and they are built on a wider last. Both are top quality shoes though. Finish is splendid.

Love the wallpaper print on the Garmin screen. Classy.
