Cervélo p3c

Discussion on bikes, and whatever...

Ok, I come up with aero chainrings only one page ago, and now it's Stephen's idea? :angryOnFire: :wink:

I would never trade in the DA SRM for the Zipp 300s, on a TT build, and I have both. Pimped with a full aero chainring there is barely any metal to be seen, except for the crank arm, and her's even has black and white decals.

Get a disc before changing anything else.

Or a disc cover. The wheelbuilder.com disc covers are less than $100 & (ready for this?) are faster than a Zipp disc. Just slap it on your regular training wheels & you are ready to go. I used to have a Mavic disc & this year I'm using the cover. Cheaper & just as fast.

I'm usually only here for the FCL.

Does anybody mind a little competition to bridge the time to next season?

Prizes can be seen in the pic I attached.

Today I picked up a new part for the bike in this thread, after very long wait.

First to post what part it is in general gets second pick of what you see in the picture,

first to post manufacturer and model (more difficult) gets first pick.

I'd say a LW disc or some FL chainrings would be a great addition to that bike but I'm going to guess you traded in the boyfriend for someone who's fast enough to do that bike justice whenever he borrows it :shock: :mocking:

I'll go get my coat now ... :mrgreen:

A knife, a spoon, and a chainring. Very educated guess, and not a bad choice for an upgrade at, but no.

Not sure if Fabian Cancellara would fit a 51 :think: And he'd just be sad when he can't use it @TdF.

He'd be wearing out my nice KMC chain too fast, too, and then bring home filthy SRAM chain from Team. :mop:

Then all the fighting when he's my captain in FCL and looses, and then beats my captain in the next race. :wife:

No good.

No and yes. Congratulations, it is a fork, but not 3T Funda.

It had better not be, because that's what I want and then I would be jealous. And that was my guess.

So I will go out on a limb and guess the Oval Concepts Jetstream fork.

It does make sense though. Would fit the p3c nicely and is definetly not something a store has in stock, so that explains the wait.

I'll say time bandit.

Not sure how to pronounce that but I like that as a name for that new team! :lol:


Those forks are all to ordinary, I think you ordered one of these:

Ladies and Gentlemen, we've got two winners and a jealous Pritchet74

Thomskie, please let me know it you want the spoon of the knife and you both pm me your address.

It's hard to take a pic of the shape, but it looks really sexy in person.

But now I need to find the perfect stem.

I really like the Pro Missile Evo stem, but it is expensive, really heavy (~260g) and the holes it has are meant to go with internal routing of the Missile Evo aero bar, and I'm not sure if I could make it work with the Tula I have.

Image

I am of the opinion that the area behind the stem is not negligible. I could use the Oval aero top cap, but I'm not sure how smooth and elegant it would look, if it doesn't fit the stem just right.

Yup. I am jealous.

Congrats though!
