    messing around with the bikes this afternoon, swapping around wheels and stuff to get the tri bike ready for turbo duty. Decided to take a few snaps. Excuse the deep wheels appearing on both bikes, i hadn't put them on the road bike before and wanted to see how they looked.

    Road Bike: Rose CRS3100, Full Carbon, Ultegra Di2.

    I figured neither the rockhopper hardtail nor the 194x high nelly i'm currently renovating would hold much interest in here

    travelling last week so missed this, apologies, but no, no road racing. thought about giving a4 a bash to see how i would get on, but i'd need a lot of training and would need to focus on it for a year and don;t want to give up the other sports.


    plus, i'm not the most risk adverse, so i'm likely to end up in every crash there is, so even if i was racing don;t know if i'd be risking that bike as i'd be guaranteed to smash it up, reckon i;d pick up a cheap thrasher and just not worry about it

    Well here it is...two years in the making, I'm a proud owner of a Cervelo :):cool:

    Excuse the poor focus!

    It's pretty aero :cool:

    The nice tidy cockpit and Ultegra Di2 shifters

    ...and if I'm not putting a water bottle on the aero bars, for which is easy as there are holes for the bottle cage, the bridge acts as a perfect place for the 910xt

    The Magura Hydraulic Brakes

    Cheers EC. Self build but NOT self assembled! Everything is new except the saddle. Mainly Slane Cycles (keep an eye out for their sales, they are unbelievable!) and bike24.de. First outing will be Ballinrobe Duathlon on Saturday.

    will you use the cosmics this time of year or something you'll have to worry less about replacing?

    They will be used for racing only, my old training wheels for training. Those Mavics are very wide, it seems all new aero wheels are going down that route, it means that I've only 1mm clearance from the brake pads until they are worn a bit!
