Boa's and a life time warranty. 😁 Push them in and twist for tighten and pull the dial out, for quick release. (y)

I do love my Black Beauty and this is it in Sprint mode with the new 56t front and chain made to measure for 108" 100" and 94". 😎 It may not be lite at 7.9kg but I don't care, it's nice to ride and it's stiff. 😁

Are those rims to stop people like Troy poking sticks in your spokes to make you stack it?

They are my third tie wheels, my 1st tie are worth $7000 and without rubber.

Apparently full aluminium too.
I tried to get a link but facebook would let me.

Finally got some mtb specific shoes. Etnies marana cranks. I ordered the mid but ended up with normal. Oh well. Better than nothing 😊

Heard today on the wireless that Hervey Bay is having a huge tri here. It’s an international event.

Is that first one, a seat cover and tool bag? :unsure:

Rode the S5 the other day.
It felt like a comfy old chair.
Done 30+k km on it. Just fits perfectly.
Rode the TCR again today. Its close but not the same.
Only done 12k km on it.
So bugger it. Out with the plumb bob, tape measure and steel ruler.
Turns out the bb on each are almost exactly the same height.
Plumb bob showed I have the nose of the saddle exactly 5cm behind the bb on the S5.
Swapped back to an Arione on the TCR recently and just did it by eye.
It was at 6cm behind the bb.
Saddles are same height but the TCR just felt higher. That'll be why.
Put em beside each other now and they are almost identical.
Reach, handlebar height, saddle height, saddle set back. Should be good.
Far kit though.
I am riding the cervelo on the sat 7s tomorrow.
I need all the help I can get.
There are national level riders in the bunch and I most certainly am not.

I have my Foil and Wheeler set up almost the same for everything. The wheeler is so much more comfy but the Foil responds and corners faster. My Azzurri Track bike is almost similar but you don't want the Track frame set up the same as the Roadie's because they are different disciplines. ;)

Yeah I'll see how it goes.
The saddle on the S5 seems more comfy after all those ks.
I reckon the frame is a bit more compliant too.
I can adjust the tilt of the bars and hood position a touch too. Same shape and width of 3T bars on each.
Slightly different tilt. I'll do that tomorrow after the ride.
That S5 is just so comfy it is my blueprint now I reckon.

I like the seat forward after racing TTs. Opens up the hip angle and I just go better.
I need to be low to hang onto these buggers who are young and put out a shed load of power

Just swallow a few Nodoze and you'll be right. ;) Blown a gale and wet here, thank goodness for the indoor Annadome. :)
