No. You meant to post in the best vapourware thread.

The Vector might be a candidate for the 2015 version of this thread :P

They didn't even have it on display at ces. If they did i couldn't find it (I found their booth and played with the 510/810). That's a bad sign.

Shamal 2-way fit with the Hutchinson fusion-3 tubeless. All my life I rode tubulars. I believe tubeless will be the only way to go.
These wheels are light, very sturdy, and with the ceramic bearing they roll very well. My tire pressure is 80 (I am 148 lb).

1) Castelli Sanremo Speedsuit & Thermosuit - The most comfortable things ever. Once you do the onesie, you won't go back.
2) K-Edge Garmin mount
3) Oakley Radarlock XL - No frame hindrance on the sie or on top. Love them!
4) Exposure Lights - The Flare rear blinky and the Maxx-D / Six Pack up front are all you'll ever need. No wires!
5) Specialized Watergate Bottles

RWD mount at top of my list too; other thing was altura pocket rocket rain jacket (£55) - rode lands end to John O'Groats during severe weather warnings and it was amazing (as point of reference I mainly use assos and castelli). Unfortunately lost it on a ride .... But birthday next week and top of my pressie list!

the handbuilt wheels I built myself. Almost a year riding them and I've had zero issues with them. I'm never buying factory wheels again. :thumbup: :beerchug:
