Hi
Thought I would just share my new TT. I bought it for Challenge Copenhagen next year.
Thanks to a good friend of mine who needed something to test his new photo-gear on :wink: I now have some NEW PICTURES:

Now. Less talk and more pictures:

Specs:
Specialized S-Works Transition, Saxobank, Size S.
Sram Red
Xentis Mark 1 TT clinchers

I have Xentis Aerobase X1 bars that will go on the bike in january. I also need to mount some hydration system. Most likely profile design aerodrink or similiar.
I might also need to play around with the seat and maybe try on some others.

And finaly: Yes, the front brake is supposed to be red :mrgreen:

Nice bike! I would recommend trying an Adamo saddle - heavy and ugly, but works for me (I also do tris).

What's wrong with your saddle?

Won't find too many of those in T1 :D

I like it a lot. Always been a fan of those Xentis wheels.

FWIW I did IMC this year on a Fizik Arione CX and it was super comfy the whole way.

Good Luck, Go Fast!

Tillykke!

It looks very sharp. Hope it will ride as fast as it looks!

Well it wont be the bike that sets the limits for sure. It was good enough for Cancellara last year so I guess it might be good enough for me this year. :mrgreen:

My friend has been wanting a Transition for awhile, so I sent him a link to yours to encourage him to get one :beerchug:
