for me it's important to have the same levers left and right, before i had shimano da 9 right and the old brake lever left, so the hands were different on the bar. somehow it's stupid to take a new record lever and take out the shifting stuff, but it's racing, weightweeniism and enthusiasm, so...and the shifter without shifting parts is lighter than the tt lever.

Probably the most "WW bikes" today were Christian Heules Stevens bikes. With Zipp wheels and Tune hubs. Nokon cables.


Image

Image

Image



And Heule went "Deda" on this bike... look at the Deda cranks!
edit: Simon told me this is a mistake. This is the bike of Heules teammate Jens Schwedler (German champion):

Image


Funny thing... never seen this: this guy arrived at the race and his mechanics still had to clean his bike before the warming up! He transported a dirty bike to the race. Quite unprofessional. :shock:

But he finished 3rd.


__________


Actually, just for info, the race result:

1 Nys Sven - Rabobank
2 Albert Niels - Galmaarden Sportief 0.03
3 Heule Christian (Zwi)- VZ Uznach 0.30
4 Vanthourenhout Sven - Rabobank 0.53
5 Vanthourenhout Dieter - Beveren 2000 1.04
6 Soetens Jan - Onder Ons Parike
7 Frischknecht Thomas (Zwi) - Swisspower 1.40
8 Van den Berh Kamiel (Ned) - UWTC Volharding 1.42
9 Van de Sompel - Rudi Saey - Deschacht SG
10 Commeyne Davy - MrBookmaker Sportstech
11 Schwedler Jens (Dui) - Stevens Rac.Team
12 Clarysse Nico - Saey - Deschacht SG 2.09
13 Gruwier Steve - Asfra Racing Team 2.48
14 Page Jonathan (Usa) - Colavita Olive
15 Rondelez Bjorn - Beach Bikers
16 Baelen Pedro - Saey - Deschacht SG 3.21
17 Seco Amundarain David (Spa) - Busturia 4.15
18 Eeckhout Jaak - Saey - Deschacht SG 4.33
19 Meys David - Profel CT 5.07
20 Bassez Patrick - Edegem BC 5.16

Then... who's this man signing a world champion jersey?

Image


Oh yeah, Thomas Frischknecht. World Champion MTB Marathon. Organizer Peter Vandenabbeele asked him to come to this cross.

He won't need his 2006 Scott MTB (on the right side of the picture) today. He gets his cross bikes ready:

Image


This is what he's riding on today (see the Kuota fork):

In action:

That's it guys... couldn't show you all my picture, but I hope you liked this contribution. If you would like to have a picture of anything in specific or more detailed, feel free to ask.

I'll try to make a similar amount of pictures at the CarbonSports Firmevent. 8)

the cables on frischi?s bikes are gore; he rides them since a long time.
look at frischi's saddle:ritchey without leather(self made)
heule is probably the most ww-professional(after myself :D ).
he has left dura ace levers without shifting inserts(self made), wich is off course lighter and he blocked the lever so it won't turn left-right, just back for braking.
heule also has 2 pairs of lightweight, and not only one, but around 5 sets of zipp/tune.
the white stevens isn't heule's, that's the one of jens schwedler(teammate and german champion). heule has dura ace cranks on his bikes because they're way stiffer(already last year, he gave back the fsa cranks and bought dura ace).
the guy who's working on frischi's bikes is gert rombouts, mechanic at domina vacanze in the summer. he was jan ullrich's mechanic when he won the tour. i've never seen a better guy than him!

Thx for all these info Simon! Next time join me if I go to a cyclo cross (if you don't have to race yourself). :wink: :D

Here is a more detailled view of Frischi's bike with cabble, saddle... and mechanic.
