Here's my TT bike. I had the wheels already and decided it was time to do something besides my normal road riding. The frame is a second hand scott ltd, and the rest I pieced together. It's freaking awesome and it's done wonders for my regular road riding.

2009 Fuji Aloha 1.0 TT build.



This photo is from the Fuji site. I haven't taken a photo of my build as it just got completed. The only differences are that I used red Easton bar tape, and red sidewall Vittoria Rubino Pro tires. Also, my seat is not quite so high (this one is actually extended beyond the "Maximum" point on the post!) and my bars are all the way down to the head. The spacers are above the stem.

It's a bit on the heavy side compared to my carbon road bike, but I still get a 10 - 15% speed gain due to the aero position.

I just picked up my first Tri bike. It is great. A 2011 Felt B16. Really haven't done too much to it except put on my Shimano ULTEGRA PD-6700.

Waiting on bar ends so I can run the cables and finish her up.
New tires are here, so I'll rehab the wheelset and then tape 'em on.


Then again, I have a spare. It needs an HED rehab, also.

Love the MCR! Nearly bought one new years ago. There is just something sweet about the 'super bikes' from the past like the the MCR, Hotta, Cheetah and Zipp's...

Even though I couldn't race it at the moment (racing road TT's under UCI rules), I would really like to build one up just to have in the collection!

This is my girl. This is the road racing set up, but add a set of T2+ aerobars and that's pretty much it. Yes, that is a Union Flag saddle...!

This is my Green contribution to TrĄ, check it out

Hi all, this is my ride Bambolution Raptor 2013, full bamboo frame, Shimano groupset and Aerospoke Carbon Wheels.
What I enjoy the most is the road vibration absorption when wheezing into T2. Last Tri NieuwWest Amsterdam 2013.

The most funny thing was going through other competitors curious enough to ask me about the bike at midst race! Loved it!

Picked this up a few days ago. New 2012 Felt B12 (clearance from local bike shop).



New Ultegra 6700 cassette is on order but not received yet but these wheels will go on when it arrives:



Got impatient waiting for my new cassette (it still won't arrive for at least 1+ week). Moved the stock wheelset cassette over instead and finally got the brakes along with the rear derailluer adjusted. Also, replaced the stock Felt handlebar tape as the white, was, well not so white anymore from people test riding it before me. If anyone knows of a replacement for the brake hood covers that fits well let me know where to go. I don't like the texture of the stock one. Plus being white it will not stay that way for long.

We think it's awesome.
Bar end shifters and maybe an inline seatpost would be nice upgrades, otherwise leave it as it is.

Here is the 2007 Specialized Roubaix. A Friend gave me a fizik seat and tri bars that I am now enjoying. I got it used on craigs list with only 70 miles on it! I have really been enjoying it during my tri training. If you want to read about my training plans and other health and fitness related info check out my blog!
