I've been following the WW forum for quite some time and now I decided to introduce myself, my bike and projects that I am working on.. This lovely forum has been shown to me by my good friend and racing buddy, member @Berk.
So, first a couple of words about me. I'm an ex-pro rider from Slovenia, passionate cyclist, I love nice bikes, summer evening rides, good coffee, pretty women, I always try keep the wind at my back and the sun on my face (which is in case of this years spring rather problematic as it's still snowing occasionally here in Slovenia
I'm not racing any more, however I still cycle on a daily basis. I began with road cycling when I was 12 and I've been racing until last year ( now I'm 21, almost ). Cycling is a bit of a heritage of the Valant (my surname) family, as my great grandfather and grandfather were cyclists. My great grand father was an Olympian (competed on Berlin games in '36) and he also was a very respected framebuilder in Peugeot and later startet his own brand Valy. I am also an engineering student and even though I'm not "active" in the sport any more, my goal is to stay in this sport for the rest of my life trough projects that engineering knowledge offers me. That's a photo of team Radenska on GP Laigueglia 2011; 3rd from left is @Berk, I'm on his right
During my career I've ridden lots of team bikes, from steel Billatos, Scotts, to Williers. However I always wanted to have a Cervelo with Campy. And last year, I built myself one. It's not superlight (currently it has 6.5kg with Hed wheels) neither is the most fresh on peace on the market. It's a 2009 Cervelo R3 frameset that I got brand new (some very old stock). I've put on Campy Record, Ritchey WCS components, some Speedplay Titanium pedals and Selle Italia SLR flow saddle. To me it's one of the prettiest bikes, I just love it.
Here's a couple of pictures with various wheels on it. Here on LW; bar and stem are now WCS wet black Zipp 404'sThese are my current wheels, I got them for a silly money and they are the best made wheels I've ever ridden!
These are all pictures I have, but I promise I will share some more, ASAP.
