Our fellow forum user and friendly weight weenie toutenhoofd has won the Mt Washington Road Race. Many of you will know him from this forum. Kinda cool to see one of the weight weenies win a big race. Congrats toutenhoofd!

That is great news. Nico built up my EDGE wheels and I see we share the same ride time give or take about 30 minutes but my ride is to work at that time. I wish I could just keep riding but I have to stop after 35km.

We must know what the build was. I think this is great. Obviously the motor must be in tip top form but when your motor is great then you lighten whatever else you can.

Thanks!

Here's a link to the VeloNews story. This is probably the one and only time I'll get media coverage like this, so I might as well live it up:
http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/08/ ... imb_136069

And here's a link to some more photos from VeloNews:

As for the bike, it was 10.6 lbs as ridden. That included the Quarq/Lightning cranks, the Garmin EDGE 500 head, and of course my SpeedPlay X series pedals. Brief description of bike is:

58cm Cervelo R3-SL frame
THM tuned fork
EDGE 1.25 rims on ExtraLite rear, M5 front. Pillar Ti spokes
SRAM RED shifters with B-T-P carbon clamps
AX-Lightness premium bars
ExtraLite stem with homemade plastic top cap
SRAM XX rear derailleur and XX 11-36 cassette
Schmolke post
Becker saddle
Fibre-Lyte carbon rings
Quarq PowerMeter
Lightning cranks
no bottle cages
B-T-P carbon hoods
Bontrager tape
VeloFlex Record tires
Titanium chain donated by ColoClimber
PowerCordz cables
SpeedPlay X1 titanium pedals with B-T-P aluminum plates

My bike was creaking like crazy the entire ride up the mountain, which was sort of embarrassing, but it didn't break. There was a truck with some journalists and photographers in it, that was following me, and they kept looking at my bike as it it might suddenly break, and to be honest, I wondered the same thing... After the race I diagnosed the creaking at it was my cleat on my shoe, and had nothing to do with my eggshell bike. I tightened the cleat to the bottom of my LUST carbon shoes and the creaking went away.

Thanks!
Nico

I thought those creaking noises were coming from my bike. I must have been closer to the front than I thought. NOT! hahaha

Great job Nico. Maybe next year I'll be back fit and injury free to give you a run for your money.

That is a sweet set up. I love that guy on a WW build won the race. I wonder if the others had bikes built up like yours. Great work.
