This past weekend I completed my first TT and had a really fun time. It was a 33.3KM Time Trial (actually 30.5km due to construction) and I completed it in 52:16. So somewhere around 21.5mph. I figured I'd get around 22.5mph, but it was super windy so that's my excuse
On the training side I'm really pushing for a lot of quality riding. I'm doing the TrainerRoad "40k TT High Volume" training plan on my computrainer, plus some outdoor riding.
Below is a quick video of my positioning and gear that I used for the TT. Since I'm on a budget, what's the lowest hanging fruit as far as improvements go for modifications? I realize my jersey isn't tight enough, I can probably get a more aggressive position..and my helmet actually is too big. I have an oval head so there's lots of room on the sides of my head in the helmet - Bell helmets fit me better so i'll probably get a Bell Gage or even an aero helmet like the Bell Javelin.
Those I assume are worth it? What else? How's my positioning? How much time are the above things going to save me, assuming equal fitness/effort as my last TT?
I noticed everyone else had aero helmet, rear disc/cover, shoe covers, skin suits, gloves, etc. All of these will save time, but how much likely?
Lastly, I'm using Conti GP 4000s clinchers with regular (Buterol) tubes. Would latex be a reasonable upgrade?
Here's the video of exactly how I was setup at the TT this weekend:
