I looked at buying one but there are none into the UK until August I was told at best. Agree they look awesome though



Members on slowtwitch have taken delivery already. Not sure when they ordered.

..and suffering you are Nick... :shock:

On a related topic, why change to TT? Is this just to add a variety to your cycling life or training for TOB?
I am contemplating a TT rig atm, mainly for TOB but also to add another "dimension" to my training. Just would be nice to hear your perspective on this..

Cheers

Was never really a change per se, as I hasn't yet found my niche (except for clearly not being a climber :lol: ).

Also, especially given the amount of TT's I'd ever done, my results were better in them than anything else (ie: bunch sprints, break aways, etc). Coupled with my power profile, TT's made perfect sense.

So whilst I don't have the ability to suffer with the top guys up a 50min climb it seems I can suffer for that sort of time on a TT bike. Odd, but hey I won't argue.

Besides which, going fast is fun :twisted: so there will be a lot more TT's this season for sure.

TP - absolutely love it. Have had zero issues with it and the numbers agree very well with my powertap that I run on my roady. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another!
