  • Lovely bike Keelang, have you had any luck getting a speed concept draft box or the quintana roo box to fit on the back of the seat tube?? Have seen one or two online with it and looks well, makes it even more integrated too.

    There is a thread on slowtwitch where they have made a 3d plastic insert that goes in in place of the bento box and you can use a Shiv fuselage (if you can get one!) to have integrated drinks as well.

    Thread is here,

    Fella called FLUC has links to the pieces in here signature, size depends on size your looking for and bike size.

    Last thing I've seen the Tri Rig omega front brake seems to test a lot better than the brake the bike comes with, it's a centre pull brake and form some reading saves 5watts (sounds like a lot but if it does it's worth it). Few little mods to that bike and you have a real proper super bike. If I ever get the money together I reckon that's the bike I'd buy.

  • I got the Speed Concept draft box for my IA. Fits without any bother. Lid needs to be taped down for some Irish roads though.
    The Calpac is a bit fiddly and useless so I might be going with Fluc's mod in the long term

    Yes I've been looking at a draft box alright just waiting for money to come together to get a few new bits for it along the lines of what you've mentioned, but at this stage the legs have room for bigger improvements than anything else. The calpac isn't great but would still do to store gels and the like I think, I normally use a bta bottle that is still to be fitted.




  • Not a TT bike but my new nice weather bike is nearly built, just in time for the winter. I've long legs and short torso for my height so it means I have to go small frame to have the reach ok and then the saddle high to fit the legs. Bike would look better with the stem slammed but not going to happen with the drop that would be there because of my silly body shape. Still have to add bar tape and chain but it's getting there. Should be able to finish it off myself too and hopefully if the weather stays dry and not too cold I'll get out on it.
