English Cycles show bikes

Postby rob56 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 6:39 am

Hi folks, just back from NAHBS where I unveiled my race bikes for this season. Today I got the first round of studio shots back so I get to finally share them! Here's the first, my take on aero-road, fully integrated Di2:

And here is the second, general road racing and hillclimbs. The beauty of racing in Oregon is that OBRA is outside of USAC and thus no weight limit! 10.8lbs as shown, so will still be under 12lbs with deep section wheels and road racing tires.

Again, more detail shots and full specs to follow....
Cheers,
Rob.

As always, simply amazing.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Rob, if you were riding project aero would it have made up the difference?

Hi Brian - I doubt it, it was an uphill finish so the extra 3lbs I'm guessing would have more than trumped the aeroness! I did have the 6.7 wheels on the light bike, as it was a rolling course with no steep or long climbs. Sure do like those wheels!
Cheers, Rob.

Rob, did the 6.7 wheels have your aero hubs on these?
