So it seems like the sensor is the black thing on top of the case. Notice how he touches the bike with that part specifically.

Still has those stupid track-end inserts. Just use some proper steel plate already!

edit: or CP2 Ti plate.

who is that guy?

he was sitting in the stands at ADT last Thursday while i was training

rensho3 03-29-16 01:06 PM

I don't know his name, but he is always at VSC when something is going on. He has also gotten event directors to present his bicycle the audience at some point in the program. I knew his name before last July, but it is now one of those things laying on the surface of the Giordana velo. I do remember, however, he is a very nice guy. As I recall, it took a couple of years to bedazzle the bike, as he was a VSC do it when I was training on Monday and Wednesdays.

I wish they would have waited a day to announce this so I'd know it wasn't an april fools joke.

An interesting take on doping in sport:

Record Attempt Day Under the Colorado Springs Velodrome Dome

I know at least two cyclists aiming to beat national records.

This is awesome.

Interesting that they are holding this in May. I would imagine that this early in the season, people wouldn't be in top form.

I understand that riders wanted to attempt records before the dome comes down a week or so later.

It's either a budget 5-spoke or a bad photoshop...or both.

Ha! I still think the first one you posted is fake. Look at the hub.

versus:

It was the hub that made me think it was fake. The hub on the 2nd photo (from the Mavic site) looks like what I'd expect. Mavic is proud of their hubs.

carleton 04-08-16 10:55 AM

So, I think the first one might still be a replica.
