Schwalbe Stelvio clinchers - 25'ers :) Its just what I had, literally, hanging on the wall.


Eigner, Those tires might be perfect for the race, I did an ITU race in Fredericia and the road was chip seal and tore through everyone's tires. How is the road quality for the course in Copenhagen? Either way that bike looks like it will absolutely fly!! :mrgreen:

I know i've seen the actual saxo bank tt bikes with the red brake calipers.
Is this one of the actual bikes one of the guys on the team used in previous years?

I bought it secondhand, but it looks absolutely stunning. Its really well taken care of with only minor scratches in the clear coat.

I believe its Saxobank team issued as the frame has been modified to be legal for racing. The little fins behind the front wheel has been removed. I don't think the average AG triathlete/TT rider would do that to such an expencive frame.

I'd like a Transition but they don't work with the disc covers for my Powertap Wheel. :(

The aerobar upgrade is very well done. Much better than the last set up.

slack cable at downtube = not aerodynamic!

Looks like flying standing still!

Super attention to details. Love the front center pull brakes - very neat and perhaps shaves some grams off aerodynamic drag compared to conventional brakes. The Virtue aero bottle is certainly made out for this bike - it is an aerodynamic fairing. The bottle fits very well too for other TT bikes.
