Position looks very good.
How are you liking the Kask Mistral ?
I was using a Lazer Wasp before this, the Kask is so much lighter and comfy. I bought it only because someone was selling a used one for cheap, have a Notio so will do some testing during winter to see if its faster than the Wasp or not...

Here's one I specced and built for a good friend of mine. One pic with training wheels (8.75kg), the other with race wheels.

On his second ever "hot lap", he broke the 5 year KOM round Richmond Park on it. A lot more to be had once he dials it in. Has his first 10 on it tomorrow too.

58/44 AeroCoach chainrings will be here next week, so he's currently on a 53T :oops:

The paint job on the thing looks pretty crazy, which is great. I have seen too many boring looking bikes. The cockpit looks pretty weird to me, super "upright" with the bars pointing up 45 degrees. Can we see a picture of you in position?
Finally have a race pic. It's not very good (cropped as I was in the background of a pic of another guy. My head is more up than normal thanks to the colossal chopper (the other guy in the original pic) who'd just nearly taken me out on the entry to a corner... but that's another story.

Seems to be now I've raced it again. Need to change the helmet for one that fits my position better, and I'd like to lose 10-20mm of stack, but managed a joint 10th/1st junior on a very slow 10 yesterday. Still 2 mins off Adam Duggleby's winning CR though...

Hello,
In the first photo is my sworks shiv tt medium with di2,new quarq power meter(not in the photos),53/39 and corima disc.
In the second photo i am in tt position.
I would like to ask if anyone have to suggest an aero bottle for the bars or the stem because i use it in some big tt(160km) and the one bottle is only for the first 50km.

21 dead from 2 years ago, haven't ridden a fast course since. Was hoping to this year but hasn't happened - although did manage a 21:01 on Croft motor circuit in biblical rain, which is 5 laps with a hairpin each time - and has loads of traffic, we had 180 riders at 30 sec intervals, aged 8 to 80. Was like Zwift!

Cheers. There's now a couple more Croft events planned for October so hopefully might sneek under that 21 min barrier. A-Levels next year so the first half of that season's already a write-off :noidea:

A Levels? WOW, you are super young for the speed/ power you already have.

Image from my latest TT. It was crazy windy (25mph wind speed, with 40mph gusts), so I went for the shallower Rapide CLX front wheel. That was UTTERLY AMAZING. I hardly felt any sensation of steering moment. The TT was after a road race, so my legs were rather flat. At 291W average (302NP) I averaged 43.5kph for the 24km (151m of climbing) course. Power around 20 to 30 watts below what I should be doing, but I am still not unhappy. The speed (for the strong wind and some elevation) proves the aero concept is going in the right direction. I really need to pull the neck in shorter to make the helmet fit closer to my shoulders.

No safety issues with the amount of spacers?
