Martin toft Madsen from Denmark has just run the Elite World Cup time trial and he drove at 1x11 speed with DI2 XTR derailleur. He became No. 10 overall
Did he really run RD's wiring that way in the race? :shock:

Looks like there is a bit of tape holding the cable in place.

I am planning to run 1x10 gearing cause the Netherlands is pretty flat ;) Do you guys think it is possible to do this with a xtr di2 10 speed, derailleur and ordinary 10 speed di2 tt shifters?
I run a 1x10 gearing in The Netherlands as well Image
Took off the small chainring and FD, but the chain did drop once during a race, so will make a small chain catcher this winter.
Where are you located?

I live in the east to say it broudly. It will be my first tt-bike and the budget isn't sky high. Do you use a narrow-wide chain ring?

Ah, I live in the south.
I run a standard 53t Dura Ace chainring at the moment.

I had one. Painted finish was very average but I had no issues with actual construction. And look hot with race wheels in. Although most TT bikes do.

Sorry to hijack the thread but figured this is the best place to ask on the forum :P

I've seen a good deal on a Cervelo P2. Problem is it's a 58 and I'm 179cm tall with a 81cm inseam.

I really want to grab the bike but only if I can make it work. Is it just too big for me?

It'll be easier to slam I'm thinking but what are the downsides that'll trip me up.

EDIT: Nevermind, a few calls later has confirmed in no uncertain terms am I to touch a 58. I need a 54 :lol:

Anyone has a navy/red Cervelo P2 frame?

Having a hard time telling if I like it/can live with it or not. Really odd colour way.

If I can live with it then there's a 54cm I can get.

thats annoying me (62 kg body-weight!) a little bit. its the area, where carbon and aluminium meets.
as long as those cracks are purely cosmetical, just in the paint, no problem! i just hope, that the frame will not crack there structutrally sometime.
did yours have those cracks too? bmc told me its a well known problem with this frame, but just paint-cracks. i hope they are right!
