Hey all,

Ever since I started watching the Tour a few years back, I've been fascinated by the time trial. I just love the bikes. I'd love to see your time trial machines.

I'm particularly interested in vintage time trial bikes too. I'd love to build one!

FROM PCS BLOG

Next weeks ride 18/12/11 Moore River Guilderton
There is an informal ride to Moore River, Guilderton next Sunday, departing 6.00am sharp from Jindalee. REPEAT 6.00am. The route is approximately 63km one way and is via Yanchep and Two Rocks before joining Wanneroo road. The cafe at Moore river is open at 8.00 and I've warned them we are coming. Your 'Intention to ride' plus any family members would be appreciated for this purpose (An influx of 30 riders may catch them out otherwise). Details of the cafe and pics of the area here. Chris, Nghia and Tim have confirmed and many others have raised more than an eyebrow of interest. Derek will also head out earlier on the same route. In place of the regular PCS ride, other riders may opt to join the 6.00am start time and return at any point. Be advised that the Wanneroo road section is single file only and is not for the faint-hearted. The speed limit for cars is 110kmph, and is recommended for experienced riders who accept the inherent risks! (legal disclaimer: don't say we didn't warn you!). Two drink bottles, and a complete puncture repair kits for each rider are required as mobile reception is poor in areas, and miscommunication may leave you left behind. Bathers may be a good idea with river and ocean nearby. I can carry 2 extra bikes back in our car but have no room for passengers. Also I'm experimenting to find the best free ride networking tool.

Very nice. I'm keen to get into time trialing and just love to look at the different bike setups. How do those Zipp's ride? I'm also curious as to how you all first got into it, and any tips you might have for the beginner.

All I have to say about disc wheels is "whoomph whoomph whoomph whoomph whoomph whoomph whoomph"

Yes the noise that the disc wheels make can be quite intimidating to other riders, especially newbies!

For someone starting out you would be better to buy some clip-on TT/tri bars for your road bike rather than lashing out thousands of $$ on a dedicated TT rig and find you don't really like doing TTs. Maybe then the next equipment to purchase would be a "sperm" helmet and then bootie covers and a skinsuit. Then maybe look at aero wheels, generally the deeper profile the better (aero wise, but there is a weight trade off). You can't run a front disc, too dangerous if the wind catches it, but you can get up to 80mm front wheels (mine's only 50mm) or even 3 or 4 spoke wheels. There are different disc rear wheels available with all sorts of claims as to their aero benefits.

As for getting into it, there are 3 local clubs in my area and as part of their racing program they have time trial events. Ours are usually pretty short, only about 20km usually. The longest one I've done was 40km last weekend - viewtopic.php?f=17&t=47370

Equipment aside, time trials are quite different to road races as there aren't really tactics, no hiding in the bunch, it's just you,the bike, the wind, and the clock. Time trials are generally (but not always) held on flatter courses than road races and the focus is to have the most aerodynamic bike and equipment, rather than a super featherweight bike like most road racers aspire to.

Thanks Ross.

I'm thinking about doing just that once I finish my Colnago (aero bars, etc and giving TT a go) to find what type of racing I like most. Great advice, thanks!

Here's mine:

Image

Built from scratch after 3 years of being hosed on Triathlon bike legs while riding an old steel roadie!

Started with a Planet X Stealth Pro Frame and over 12 months patiently bought up lightly used Dura Ace 7800 bits. Brakes however are Ciamello Zero Gravity Titanium (super light) and the bars are Pro Missile (again, super light at 475grams). Wheels are Zipp 404 tubulars with a rear wheel cover. All up it’s 7.2kg without pedals.

First outing was the Huskisson Long Course Triathlon – 83km at 34.4kmh
Next was the Ironman in Cairns – 182km at 31.6kmh
Most recent was the 40km bike leg in the Canberra Olympic Distance Tri – 40km at 37.0kmh

In all instances I’ve had to ride conservatively to save my legs for the run so I’m very keen to just do a TT and chase the holy grail of 40kmh for an hour.

I think the Trek range of TT bikes are the best looking out there. Even the Speed Concept 2.5 is really good looking.

If only I could afford one. Like Lunar C, I have also been in love withh TT bikes since my first tour in 07!

That's debatable! I do like the flooring and skirting boards though!

Thanks Chook, Tassie Oak flooring and Olivine walls...8P. I must confess I am a Trek Fanboi from way back since the family has a total of 7 Treks (Yes even the kids ride Trek). Pretty much any of the super TT bikes these days looks pretty darn awesome, the major bike manufacturers have really lifted their game over the last 2 years so its not such a Cervelo P-fest anymore.

This is a design that I did that is based on the Trek Speed Conept 9.9. I chnged it so the speed boxes are in built and the frame is slightly different. I am doing a 1:10 scale model of it a the moment, and will post pictures when I am finished:

Finally got around to taking some photo's of my new Pro-Lite Modena TT bike. Its fitted with a Pro-Lite Padova disc, Pro-Lite Rome 5-spoke carbon front wheel.

I need to start doing the odd training session on it, so far its seen race-use-only duties.

You know Jacks, the usual bike pic standards are drive side and on the large chainring..... :) Nice rig btw.

If thats your lawn, the weeds seem to have taken over, you really have to do something about that. :shock:

Here is a video one of my friends made of a TT here in Perth last year. It was 44.1km, hilly and really windy. I rode 1:01:58 and am on the black felt.

The video was a compilation of the weekend and so has us cruising around and my friend doing a bit of padelling.
