Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If I carried water in it then it would by definition NOT be a 'spare water bottle'. I would guess that by June/July it will no longer be quite as dispensible. But when it's 35º - like my 3+ hour ride this AM - I really don't drink much. And I felt great. Intervals.

Cue the 'you really have to drink more' rant. At least I won't drink myself to DEATH like some of these slow marathon runners. And it has been a VERY long time since I bonked on a ride.

I still don't understand why you want such a nice pump rattling aroung in an empty water bottle, when it comes with a nice snap in mount, but hey, what ever works for you


Hey Traffic Jammer, nice to see you!

I like that rear disc brake. First time I've ever seen a black one though.

What a great Idea, a DD that doubles as a Disk Brake

I am amazed at how many TST's have popped on on this thread. I was totally unaware of TST before I registered on this forum, now I love mine.

I didn't think you could buy those wheels with a spoke protector, maybe he added it intentionally.

No, he couldn't have....
If some LBS built it up like that there's a mechanic with a sick sense of humor.

WW, has there ever been a "Show your TST" thread? If not, we should start one and see just how many of us there are on the forum.

My older (2001 ?) Ksyriums came from the factory with a dork disc. A smaller one.

I still have it hanging in the cellar.

They look to have round spokes, not bladed. I think they're Equipes.
