Hi,
i'm mostly busy in the "road" section, but i mount a mtb every now and then as well. Here's a pic taken on the "Tenda" border road, one of the most beautiful tours i've ever done.
the ride is a Rocky Mountain Element Signature (german label for the RM "Instinct") equipped with XT/XTR mix, SR SID SL fork, Avid Mag brakes.
Not exactly WW stuff, but at around 12kg still reasonably light, dead reliable and a dream to ride.

Is the naked riding more aero?

Or just for weight saving?

Or impressing the Ladies?

I'm an erstwhile xc racer of no repute (ie. I'm not very good!) and first time Transalp-ee this year

Oh, and I think I might be addicted to bike-bit-shopping on the internet, which is a bad thing seeing as I'm stuck behind a desk at work most of the time...

I am mostly doing mtb-marathons or 24h races in germany and europe.
Since sep. 04 my rotwild RCC08 isn't alone any longer, i bought a cheap roadbike for training, which will boost my speed a lil' bit(at least i hope so :lol: )

no don't race on the road, but my teammate Jamey Driscol won last year (he wasn't my teammate at the time). The closest I get to road races is my 'cross bike, which i do a lot of road training on.

i always go watch the crit though! and take photos, photography is my other hobbie :lol:

did you race?
