Sorry, why the need for such expensive kit on a kids bike?

Great bike Casran. Oval Concept parts are soo sweet! It deserves a lenticular rear wheel in my view.
What about Conti's Tempo tubulars? Do you think they would be suitable for everyday training and road races?
Thank you.
CiaoCiao!!

Thanks.

On those Bora wheels I mounted Conti Tempo tubulars. :wink: It's not recommended for training and road races though; see comments in my earlier thread about those tubs: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17203

Most probably not. A flat disc won't make me faster than the Xentis Mark 1 TT wheels that are coming. :wink:

Why should "kids" not have expensive equipment?
