Only got to do two TTs on it since it was bought almost 12 months ago!! Still not sorted the fit at the front end, will possibly end up lower. I have that lovely aero headtube then a load of spacers above it which sort of defeats the object. However, being in a comfortable position is more important - the spacers may increase drag by 1 watt but if I'm putting out 10 Watts less in a lower position, well, you do the maths!

    I did. You might as well be on a road bike with clip ons in that position, lower will be faster.

    Besides, 10 watts is nothing, you'll still have 2 more than anyone else.

    Your crank arms are neither horizontal nor aligned with any tube.

    The rear valve is slightly forward of BDC

    The bottom of that garage door looks photoshopped :wink:
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    It looks a lot better when it's low though, which is all that really matters innit.

    Do you have Zipps for all your bikes, or is it the same pair to swap around?

    Nice bike though.
    Specialized Venge S Works
    Cannondale Synapse
    Enigma Etape
    Genesis Flyer Single Speed


    Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last...

    Swap them round...

    No point in having two lots the same!

    Although I do fancy them there wheelcovers as mentioned before to make my powertap wheel a sort of disk.

    Must PM GreasedScotsman!
