It looks great, but I'm a little confused about your internal wiring plan. How are you planning on getting the battery cable inside the frame? A hole in the downtube? What about the FD cable?

Nice work, but BOTY is waaay to premature - all that has been shared so far has been done before!

Keep it up!

Thanks for the explanation on the holes. Sounds good.

Are you going to replace the battery with LiPolys? Based on my other hobby (electric model helicopters) these are much lighter than LiOn chemistry batteries and have lower internal resistance so you could use a smaller capacity to save weight and hide the battery.

Tempted by a Time... Chose a Z4 instead, last year and very happy with it, but still like the idea of the time.

As a Time fan, if you are ever in Paris you need to visit the Time boutique. Takes bike shops to another level. About 300m from the Arc de Triomphe.

The bike is for 4 gran fondos this summer. I want sexy, stiff, light and very aero wheels. I want to keep them under 45mm and under 1200 grams.

Gran Fondo Boulder, April 11, 2010- 65 miles 4800 ft climbing
Gran Fondo Vail, June 19, 2010- 80 miles 5500 ft climbing
Gran Fondo Centurion Cycling, Boulder (CO), July18, 2010- 100 miles 10000 ft climbing
Gran Fondo Steamboat, August, 15, 2010- 110 miles 5500 ft climbing

Here is my running list of possibilities:
Dura Ace 7850 28mm/24mm (-heavy and not very aero, + free, since I already have them)
Easton SL 38mm (-not sexy or light, + free, since I already have them)
Custom Edge 45mm or AX 42mm (- very expensive, + sexy, light and rebuildable, dial in stiffness and weight)
LW Ventoux (-not aero, not stiff, not rebuildable, very expensive, + sexy and light)
Zipp 303 45mm (-not sexy, + aero )
Mavic Cosmic Carbone Ultimate 40mm (-expensive and relatively heavy, + stiff and sexy)

Thoughts?



Hi,

I have a set of Mavic CCU's and must say that i'm very happy with them. They're outrageously stiff, spin up to speed comically fast and look so damn sexy. If 1185grams is a relatively heavy wheelset then I must be from another galaxy...

Good luck!
