Gorgeous bike but please ask Tailwind to dump the spoke protector. Kinda spoils the otherwise PRO look. :D
It's a bit warmer here than Scotland isn't it!

My new Merida Reacto 909E bought from Tailwind Cycles here in Adelaide. Compact crank fitted because I am soft.

Now just waiting for the weather to improve so I don't get it wet. :roll:

Awesome bike man. The black and white colour scheme works very well indeed. That also includes the colour matched basket on the left :)

Hope the weather gets better for you. Let us know how the ride goes well.

USadam: Remove that nasty looking plastic gear guard on your rear wheel. I have DA C35s... they are simply luscious wheels. :) They deserve nicer tyres though.

Plastic guard removed...

Tyres will be replaced but will stick with them in the short term because they match the bike...

Great weather this weekend in Adelaide! Out she goes for the first time. :D

Black and White Schwalbe Ultremo ZX's will look awesome on your beautiful bike IMO, I've got them on my Cannondale and they are the best looking thing on the bike!

Dont listen to them! The Rubino's look good, and they're a great tyre. Why spend $100+ when you dont have to?

But hey, white Rubino Pro's look sooooo crass, right:

They are AAD 800i floorstanders. Lovely sounding speakers. I love them to bits. Thanks :)

Oh hey, don't get me wrong, I have white Rubinos on my Reynolds Solitudes (my commuting wheels). I think they look pretty cool :)

...but on Dura-Ace 7900 C35 wheels, you really should get something better.

Yep +1

I have red ones though, well I did, but I wore them out!

Underrated on BNA IMO but I agree with mezla, they are no Schwalbe Ultremo's etal and Dura Ace C35's deserve top end tyres IMO

As always, not a fan of white but damn, that's gotta be the best looking TTer out there regardless of colour.

Yes, that Titanio is beautiful and was also quite successful racing with a bunch of wins in the early 1990s.

Something faster and lighter. Pro3s are chunky and good all-purpose. I like mine a lot. C35 are not all-purpose wheels... they're luscious kickass fast wheels that beg for very fast tyres and latex tubes. IMHO :)
