Might be an issue with the saddle on backwards but what do I know? :smartass:


Juanmoretime, not sure if you've seen the new dash tt/tri specific saddle:

...apparently very comfortable....and super light at only 80-odd grams (don't quote me on that)!!

Dawm!!! I like what I see. Interesting how removing the Zipp logos highlighted the chain and Trek sitckers. Very cool!
KMC chain installed and new setup chainrings 34/53. 34 for huge climbs and 53 for TT's....ready for everything!

(19g less removing Zipp stickers by the way.... :) )

Actual weight: 7550g

Next step:

Cassette: From Ultegra 12-23 (220g) to Recon 10SP 11-25 (100g) = saving 120g and Faster!!!!!
Zipp extensions bar and shifters: to...Zipp S-bend extensions integrated with Sram R2C = saving aprox 90g ( to be confirmed)

New theorical weight: 7340g

Dreams: Dash saddle TT09 (86g)....... :thumbup:

Do you only have one leg?? Just guessing based off your avatar/image.
(Not meant in any way to be offensive or demeaning, I think it's amazing that you're able to ride/compete through the challenges!)

Just started my TT project. Good news it weighs 14 lbs, bad news it still needs some parts.

What kind of leg/ cleat interface do you use? I used to ride and work with some of the gb para squad and they had some cool legs with built in cleats where the cleat would be on a foot, unlike a lot which stick the cleat in line with where the leg bones would be so isn't efficient

I used to wind the guys up claiming their carbon legs weigh less than mine, so that's why they beat me up hills! That and the 20 hours a week training!

I use the cleat attached straight to my carbon foot, but I still have some rubber to walk a little bit, the tube connecting to the socket is a cervelo P3 seatpost...very aero, to bad you can't see in this picture, but has a decent aero profile.

for your idea:

Thats cool! A p3 leg, nice. Looks sleeker and more high tech than the gb legs, though I guess they a overbuilt for track use. Enjoy the aero benefit!
