Fresh in from Nevers... Before they went on holiday for August. Looking forward to getting out on this rig. The wheels look tired, so I'm thinking Racing Speed XLR Dark Label (50mm or 80mm), Zipp 808 Firecrest tubs or WH-7900-C35-TU.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I was thinking a wheel upgrade along these lines... Apologies for the mediocre photoshop but you get the idea :twisted:

I like the shimano wheels, just put a set of 7900 decals and you will have the perfect bike.

that is an incredible machine. very good effort. i would plaster on the new shimano decals and then take a view on whether it needs new hoops. :beerchug: :beerchug: :beerchug:

Thanks... I've been checking out the 7900 C50 decals. Agree, that's a no brainer.

I'm wondering how many Watts the 80mm wheels are worth at 50km/h. Even the 2007 808s are worth 6.5W over C50s (23.2-16.7)

true. the 808 firecrests would empty their ballbag all over the c50s from an aero perspective.

Very well done. I normally hate red bikes but this is excellent. I think 80mm wheels will make it look even faster.

looks awesome, I would just upgrade labels to 7900, not worth the extra expense to upgrade to Zipp 808, if anything I would upgrade to Mavic Carbone Ultimates, keep it all french and Mavic kill Zipp hands down

Stunning. I'm very close to buying one of these frames in medium, only mine will be Campy/Bora. As a matter of interest what is your measurement from centre BB to top of saddle? Just trying to get a feel for proportions. Thanks.

long femurs! Sexy bike. I like themes on bikes, so I'm all for getting the new decals and keeping it shimano.
