Speedplay Zeros. Every so often I get the bug to try something else and have used Shimano and Time Iclicks but I keep coming back to the Zeros.

So the swoops and curves of the M5 carbon low racer are downright ugly ? The way the chain stays integrate into the monocoque seat/frame structure......

I just love tubes of metal welded/brazen into regular triangles ;-)

oooooh lordy, i need that. i dont like my pista anymore. :(


I looked at the other one in the shop and lifted it just once, after this and the decision was made. The normal Langster seemed so damn heavy in comparison. Get it going tomorrow night and see what she is like. It's gorgeous.

Anyone want to buy a 2012 Trek Madone 4.5 with 3T Integra Ltd stem and Garmin mount? I think it might well be for sale.

How long is the stem? I could be convinced for the stem if it was 110 ;)

Beautiful - and the greasy chainrings sitting up there just waiting to bite somebody, and the 5m of chain flopping around. :lol:

Me too - I've made and raced my own speedway and offroad racers. And perfect for bikes too. Triangulated space frames look good and work great. :D

Probably why I like the GRR over the RANS.

Yes. Just like the revolting swoops and curves on a Pinarello Dogpoo :) .

Just got my Colossi frame - transferred most parts over from my Olmo frame that didn't fit very well.

Besdies the incorrect photo angle- how does the bike ride- I am researching an alloy replacement for my poor old TCX middle of the year- these are top of the list alongside a CAAD10 (CAADX also), new TCX's and Pro-Lite (own build of course). I use my commuting as "training" so prefer a faster bike over a "versatile" bike.
