i finally made some pictures in my bikeroom, first one of the crossbikes with lw, then the special brakepads that heule produces, price will be 100 swiss francs just for the metal pieces, 150 swiss francs for the metal pieces, orange and dual compound brake pads from koolstop and swissstop flash(yellow) for carbon rims(for one bike, means 4 x every part mentioned). weight is 11,75 grams for one metal piece(weight of brakepads vary a bit).
then i've got a pic of the new dugast rhino thread, yesterday at the world cup in wetzikon it was damn muddy, nearly every rider had michelin or rhino. i've never ridden rhino so far, but they say that the tubular is very good for muddy conditions.

Wow Simon, that is really a damn cool crossbike! Love it with those LWs.

The system Heule made is very interesting for carbon rims. As I told you BBB is coming with a similar system and it should be available around this time; I asked the BBB representative only last week and he said it is coming on the market real soon (he told me you could contact their swiss representative, if interested: www.bbbparts.com).

Good luck on this bike!! :thumbup:

That's it, Timo!! Thanks. Since I have no product folder of BBB (only seen it in the distributors book-, I wasn't able to make a scan and post it. :)

i know about the bbb parts, they come to switzerland this week(i've phoned them, but then heule gave me three sets to test, so i don't need the bbb anymore).
the advantage of the "heule brake pads" is that you can adjust the brake pads in every direction(like the new shimano 7800 and 6600 brake shoes). that's very useful because many cross bikes have different distances from brakebolt(is it called like this?)to rim, there seems to be no real standard.

Simon, the bikes look really great! Got to love that little extra the LW's give to them, you must have one of the nicest bikes of the international peloton now :) It would be nice to see you in the "winning on LW's" thread anytime soon :wink:
