Any innovative tiny bits that you might spot. Doesn't have to be vertically stiff while still being horizontally compliant!

It dosen't look like Storck has a booth, but are they showing any of their bikes in other booths?

I would like to see the 0.6 & the new Aernario aero road.

Does the EE crank count as being "new"? It's hard to say as it's old in the sense of having long been promised, but would be new(ly available) if actually made available. Anyhow, I take your statement as implying the EE crank will not be available anytime soon.

I tried to fit in as much as I could but most of my appointments took longer than expected so I didn't get to that many different places. As for some of the specific requests:

Ypsylon wrote:2013 colorways of the Castelli San Remo Speedsuit would be sweet. :mrgreen:


Castelli was at the show but didn't have anything other than one or two pieces on display, the rest were in meeting rooms so no pictures.

Cheers! wrote:pictures of the new chris king limited edition anodized purple parts!


King was not at the show only at outdoor demo.

Ozrider wrote:Hi Jason
Any info on a Parlee aero road bike. Is this the Z0 or is there an additional bike down the line as well as the Z0?
Also pics / info on the new Alchemy hubs

Cheers


The Z-Zero is really nice. Looks like a Z5 but with subtle tube changes and custom geometry. The bb is co-molded into the seat tube, headset cups are molded into the headtube. All the tubes and pieces are made in the U.S. by Enve. I've seen reported weights of 850grams, but should be starting at about 740 grams. Think of it as an upgraded Z5 with limitless options. I'm pretty excited to get one.

Storck is not showing. I got pictures at a private meeting we had arranged. The Aernario is really nice. Visibly it doesn't look as aero as some others, but from what I gather it's built on the same idea as Firecrest/Enve Smart system which is optimizing for wind at yaw. I'd really like to see some numbers to see how it compares to others but expect it to do quite well.

Alchemy also was not at the show.

Can't say too much on this right now. But I do have a pre-production group coming for a project we're working on, so I'll have lots of info about it shortly.

Hit the ENVE booth.


Damn. I should have checked here first.... I missed it.

Then again, I also shouldn't have missed the Enve booth...

I didn't see any light cranks. Not much on light parts. Best weenie part I saw was the Ultralite Cirrus Ti pedals.

Another highlight: Tiso had a display with a Dura-Ace pulley, a SRAM pulley, a Campy pulley, and some of theirs. As expected, the Dura-Ace didn't spin. The SRAM and Campy spun for 1-2 seconds, also as expected. When I spun the Tiso, I almost got tired waiting for it to stop. I broke out laughing, and I got an ugly stare from the Italian manning the booth. But it was very impressive.

Drivetrain losses in Dura-Ace are significant according to my modeling, but SRAM is sufficiently good that even eliminating all pully friction is only a small improvement. Still, I was very impressed.

DIdnt know whether or not to post this here or in the freaks topic.....
It's quite the hog of a stem but it houses a modified EPS battery unit from Calfee. I guess someone had to do it eventually.
