Cool, i wasn't sure if Veloflex made clinchers or not, they look the goods.

Very nice ride! :)

PS - you can remove the cadence magnet cable-tied to the pedal crank and just use a rare-earth magnet on the back of the pedal bolt. The garmin sensor should pick it up well. 8)

+1! Nothing wrong with Acera either, it does the job pretty well.

Very nice bike :) The tyres you have there look like the old style singles(with the yellow style walls),one of the lads on the bunch ride yesterday had a new similar looking pair.Are they vittoria tyres?

The computer mount seems to be very far back. Would imagine it's quite a shift in eye sight to look at it? I've just bought one of the new k-edge mounts for garmin comps that put it out in front the bars. A great purchase and much better place to keep on eye on all the stats.

Thanks, is a lovely bike to ride, very comfortable.

Yes, Vittoria Open Corsa SC Tubulars, very fast and yet plenty comfortable.

I prefer the computer tucked underneath my chin like this, too much data gazing otherwise, I prefer to gaze down at the front hub spinning............ :wink:

Almost hypnotic isn't it? :) .

I'm assuming you still have the chunky carbon fibre wheels? I'm curious about the change.

Hypnotic, yes. When the road is open and long and flat I find watching the front hub spin up helps me get into a rhythm, esp. with breathing. I put a couple of reflective stickers on the hub body which catches the eye easily.

I now actually own a trio of carbon wheels - still have the chunky Nimble Crosswind tri-spokes which are easily the most comfortable to ride on (shod with Vittoria CG Pave tubs) and the most stable wheels I've ever ridden - even with nasty crossing winds - probably my go to wheels when it's windy and I'm not riding bigger hill climbs. I also recently picked up an inexpensive pair of lightly used Nimble Fly low profile carbon tubulars which I've have just glued some fresh Vittoria Pave tubs to now awaiting a decent ride.......
