    thanks guys! I wont add bar tape just yet, its only going to be used for 10 mile tt's and sprint distance triathlons for now - too quick to worry about comfort!

    Took her out for a spin this afternoon in the lovely weather. The wheels look/sound amazing! Woosh woosh woosh. As this is my first TT bike I was intending not to run the 82mm on the front until I got used to the set up, but I scrapped that idea. It is certainly twitchy in cross winds, but my lack of experience on the aero bars probably plays a part in that right now. Performance wise, they are weighty but so are all aero wheels, once up to speed it shocked me how well they maintain momentum. Easier to keep spinning compared to my fulcrum racing 1's I have on my road bike. Can't go wrong with the price either!

    I passed a runner whilst cycling through clifton, who shouted out 'should have got some zipps', which had my friend and I in stitches as the area was quite busy/it was nice friendly banter. Aaaaaahhh I love cycling :)

    vrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrroooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
  • Nice! have you tryed moving the seat backwards, you are very very forward and that will not help with handling, if the seat is more central you will be more balenced on the bike!
    Helmand Province is such a nice place.....
  • that's a lovely PX.. one of the prettier ones I've seen by far..
    nice build...
