This has been a long time coming but finally arrived last Friday, so far its been built as standard and ridden in two mini triathlons and a 50k training ride. Not light but 8.2kg with pedals as pictured.

Super compliant ride, plenty stiff enough and handles surprisingly well for a full blown TT rig.

weapon. I think triathlon is a pretty retarded sport, but TT bikes are super cool machines.

Offensive and close minded, always a good call.

Please let us have a good "sideshot" (Not in the store) . This bike deserves it ;)

Next race (few weeks tops) I will have a mate who is a pretty damn good photographer out on course for some action shots....... :shock: He is also wanting to grab it and get some good shots for his collection. I will share these when we get them done.

Here is a pic of one in our warehouse. Bigger size, massive stack under the bars, and a nifty rear reflector that clips into the Fizik saddle bag clip area. Amazing how a little bar height can uglify a bike.

The seat post is doing a pretty good job as well... way way WAY too "skinny". It almost looks fragile...

IMO the seatpost looks better in person. And it's actually growing on me.

Agree, not one person that has seen this bike in person has even mentioned it, even the ones that had seen the pics on the net and I know personally said it was ugly. Everyone has said the bike looks awesome. :D

On a side note the range of hight available from the post with out the need for cutting like most TT bikes is massive....... That has got to help with RESALE, you can drop the post if your short yet still have it there to raise up if a taller person is interested in buying it.

Looks awesome, just need to sand the red off the aero bars and clear coat. And i think losing the giant ZIPP decals on the wheels would help the stealth + green aesthetic.

Picked up mine yesterday and took it straight for a fit... anyone else having issues with a slipping seatpost? At 5nm mine just goes straight to the stops... annoying. Perhaps more paste is the gee oh?

Weapon though... of course having never owned a TT rig before this kinda feels like the deep end...
