If it fits me and is comfortable I will be in touch to order another custom one for another bike. :thumbup:



Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do! I did back-to-back 100 mile rides this past weekend with my Berk (unpadded, 132mm) Lupina. No issues at all. :)

Please put on your new wheels on that frame as well and tell us how it weighs!

Thanks!

Our wheels are still in development, but we should soon have such photos with them :thumbup:

Only some of us know what is under those shoe covers:

Looking forward for more such podiums in the future :thumbup:

About wheels, what lack of information is:

1. what kind of brakiing surface
2.what about rear hub mechanism (paws, rachet) or internal parts.

Congratulations for Primoz - he is true "advertisment" of Berk :)

We look forward to work more with the guys who race at the highest level :thumbup:.
For the wheel - we are working on our own rear hub. Rim brake and disc brake. Will publish more details once it is ready.

Oooh! Berk shoes?! It's a logical application for your skills and a smart strategic progression for this stage of the Berk brand. :)

I think, that he did not use that handlebar in TT

Yes you are right, his team banned that idea, although after their training camp for the TTT they said it was ok, but changed their mind on the WC. Anyway, still extremely happy for him :beerchug:

:beerchug:

@dereksmalls unfortunately also not possible, because we made it different at the bottom of the stem (it was a perfect fit with the handlebar which has a bit different shape than the original)

Some matte looking saddle shells prepared for bonding to the saddle rails:

And we already started to sell our Sito shoes, already available in a few shops to try them :thumbup:

That's a shame. I hope his team changes it's mind and he does get to use it in the future though Jure. Was it just a "the worlds is too big a race to try this at, wait until they're over and use at a smaller race" kind of scenario from his National and trade team? It would great to see it winning races soon!
