Points deducted for not having black zip ties on the fork.

White zip ties will be replaced as i can get them:)
Speed sensor was attached just to test if integrated neodimium magnet in rim works well

Frame is from e bay...very cheap(around 90euros).
All bike is heavy as hell...with those wheelsets tubulars(1340g) around 8,2kg.

Shimano 105 5600 works amazing good.!
My old bike has duraace 7900 wich works little less smooth becouse of hidden cables...more friction.

Bike is stiff and uncomfortable...but still good racing machine.
I need one budget bike for testing new wheel designs (point in wheels are new hubs from Bartime and lacing patterens).

Based on your username I'm guessing you handbuild and label those wheels. Can you tell us more about them?

Yes stupid name i know:)

I will make some presentation of new wheel line in a one month period i hope

Wheels were under test for around a year(by some of the best racers in our country and by me) - we improve some things - most important are hubs- Bartime ceramic

Now this is really top of the line racers wheelset. They are not designed to be very light but they are probibly the stiffest thing around there with very smooth rolling.
