Still fiddling with position... With the new rule for us really tall guys it is now legal!. Few things could make it faster but for now it will do. Probably run a shallower power tap wheel for the moment though.

TLL, all my fastest times at Calga were done on a PX stealth! Doesn't have all the bells and whistles but still a decent rig!

Yeah I remember you mentioning you used to have one. I wasn't going to bother this year as I will be guiding up till the 2nd week of September which means I miss the start of the TT season. But in the end the price was too hard to refuse, it was the only frame with 60% off, probably because there was no matching fork. Whole bike wouldn't owe me much more the Au $1000 ... pretty happy with that!.
Considering what I was TT'ing on before the differences are pretty big :lol: . Got a pretty good position already, back is nice and flat ... be interesting to see how much power I can hold on Saturday's first real outing. Only 9kms ... but will be after a couple of pretty tough stages tomorrow night and Saturday morning.

Yep. Body position is everything. The amount of drag saved by the frame itself is two bits of sweet f*** all.

I wonder if Papa Smurf would aprove of the pretty pattern on the inside of the fork :lol: .
It's first TT wasn't very succesful... post slipped 3 cms ( torqued correctly ), the road was really rough for a TT.
Unfortunately it will now not have a chance to be raced until September!.
Gives me time to improve... and boy I need to!.

I went and had a look at their site - like the black Ultegra equipped bike. :)

Since I have a TT bike now, and not a TCR with clipons, maybe worthy of posting in here. Finish the work and i'll put a pic up of the new (2nd ride)
