Sticking with my Bontrager Race X lites for daily/winter use and just picked up a set of November Rails laced to Alchemy hubs from Ergott! That guy might be responsible for all my awesome 2014 season gear. I can't wait to race next weekend. If the Novembers turn out to ride well, I might end up using them as daily drivers.

I still am not sure I've seen you around but I've seen some DT kits out on the weekend.

Really? I think there's quite a wide appetite for something different and a bit out there. Maybe I'm just in the right age bracket (26) :-)


it's out there. but not classy. not my cup of tea at all. I'm only 29 myself so not sure it's an age thing...

Not a big Dogma fan but that makes a man THINK twice :wink:
Very elegant colourway, especially for a wc edition.

Where's the bike? Oh, yes, it was free gift, right? :) I thought that some manufacturers intended to do it (Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes) when they produce bikes as well.

Just joking. What model is it?

Awesome! I run my Rail52s with Vittoria Evo Corsa CS (gum walls) tires and at my ~162lbs current weight I find them very comfortable at 80psi front and 85psi rear. With GP4000s tires I can run about 5psi higher so tires really make a difference.

And quite possible you may have seen me as I was out last weekend. We have ordered our new team kits and they should be in soon. The yellow one are not the official team kit.

Campagnolo; because it's a bicycle, not a fishing rod.
