there were more records broken on that saturday:

- the place with the highest density of beautiful bikes:
LJs Pinarello
Antons Spin
the new Spin frame
the Parlee
the Carbonsports Team Canyon
the "Biber" Häberle (my personal "Best of Show"!)
several CS Total Eclipse
(...and my own humble contribution - nobody noticed it, but it bought me a short exchange of opinions about the AX saddles with Jörg Ludewig at least...)

- the place with the highest density of nice Weight Weenies.. :D :D :D



Have you missed the short appearance of my friend Giant TT bike with DA SRM and Walser bars?! Commented by Jörg Ludewig with the kind words: "Holy sh*t!" :D

And he gave it a try (his next years TT bike :) ):

Anton, I was just messing with you. It seemed that Jan was in just about every photo....... :shock:

Did any other WW take photos? I would love to see the "making of a Lightweight wheel" sort of photos.

Great to meet all of you guys... although I regret not having the time to speak to Anton, or have a longer chat with Madone5.9. It was the first time we met, but surely not the last I hope!!

What a great day! Stephan Behrens from CarbonSports is such a good organizer: he was busy all day to make this such a perfect event... and it was. Really 200% worth the 850km car trip from Belgium.

btw: yes, there were other pros apart from Jan (I think he left the Party arm in arm with Anton :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: )



Lol. Not exactly... I have pictures of Jan leaving the party. This is how it went.

First he took his time for a picture with my friend (another Belgium WW) and me (r):

Image

though Klöden was nervous and waiting for Jan to get in to his RS6 (with Klier and Kessler in the car):

Image

But Jan was filling his car with Conti tubulars and tires :D
He then stepped finally in the car:

Image

And they left with an amazing acceleration:

Interesting pictures of that:

Inside an LW hub, see the structure of the spokes:

Image

Furthermore... the making of an LW wheel is magic, abracadabra... we'll never find out! ;)



I am very honoured to have this picture: mr. Obermayer and me!!

Hi Casran
I saw your friends Giant TT bike with DA SRM and Walser bars
That thing looked COOL !

There were also some great WW member bikes there
It was funny seeing the pros look at bikes they could never be allowed to ride :lol:

Or this great Parlee!! :shock:

With signed LW:

The Conti guy had a special bike:

I guess that's the name of the guy who ownes the bike. The Conti man was an asiatic kind of guy. He wouldn't give me info about the availability of those tubulars. :cry:

Here he is giving lots of tubulars and tires to Jan Ullrich:

I think it's just a noname carbon frame.

I've seen these Conti's before on McEwens bike, last year in de TdF. I asked the man where I can buy these, but he answered (visibly annoyed by my question - not a good way to promote his products) avoidingly: "Only for world champions." Wtf? I didn't recognize hím as being one. :lol:

Sorry, this picture isn't sharp:

That's probably just a warning sign put up to make you aware of your speed. 8)
