This is my road racing bike, pictured in TT set up after doing a try-out of the next TT race course in a couple of weeks. I'll post pics of it in RR
set up when I get round to it.

Frame: 1998 Merlin Extralight 61cm with longer than std top tube.
Fork: Easton EC90 Aero 1"
H'Set: Chris King 1"
Bars: Ritchey Pro 44cm Alu (for TT with Schmolke carbon clip ons and stem lowered by 1cm)
Tape: I love the cheap shiny black stuff!
Stem: Syntace F139
Saddle: Flite SLR XP
Post: Syncros Ti
Brakes: Dura Ace 10spd
Gears: Dura Ace 10spd - rear mech with Token Ceramic Pulleys
C'Set: Dura Ace 10spd
BB: Phil Wood bearings in DA 10spd cups
Road: Mavic Cosmic Carbon SL Clinchers with Pro2Race and Latex tubes
TT: Borrowed Corima flat disc with Corsa CX tubular
Borrowed HED3 trispoke with Continental tubular

The only WW bits are the Token pulleys which I admit I bought just 'cos
they look so cool, and the Phil Wood bb, which is an absolute gem and cheap too!

On the weight, I estimate around 7.4kgs in road trim.
