Original post:

All ready for the Alpe D'Heuz Tri on the 24th July which should be a cracking day out in the mountains. I bought the frame back in late 2011 and spend the early winter of the same year putting it all together.

It all makes for a wonderfully smooth and subtle ride.








  • Set up looks perfect.
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    Frame definitely suits the thick rim wheels better. Looks pretty darn awesome.
  • Thanks for the comments.

    The Rails weren't perhaps the most obvious choice although after a long while looking into them vs the competition, I took the risk and ordered a set.

    After approx 100 or so mostly windy miles I'm really happy. They give a comfortable, precise and confident ride wile also offering a sound stopping performance.

    I'll be using them mostly for Tri's and perhaps I'll take them with me later in the year when I take my annual trip out to the French Mountains.
