Nice jrennie. You need to start a seperate topic with your alloy P3, as this is what I'm also still racing for the same reason and could do with additional ideas on how to maximise what I have...

I'm going back to ski end extensions and also bought a set of Simkin Egg brakes to clean up the front end and rear some more.

Dang, the brakes.

Now that you mention it...

I'm not convinced by any brakes the market has to offer right now. But with a 9cm head tube maybe it would be wise idea to use beefy metal stem, might have to drill a hole in it for center pull. Ui, complicated.

Thanks for heads up, though, jrennie. What brakes are those?

Does that Modolo front brake even slow you down?

Who needs to slow down on a time trial, take the bends at full steam! :grin:

Rike, what about the new Tune 4 bolt stem? Not aero in the slightest, but light, stiff and good looking! 8)

Just sitting here, hung over, looking at some parts I'd like to put on the p3c. Not that I'm really planning on doing any of it soon, but I like the pictures. :D

If you have pics of parts you'd want to see on it, go ahead and post them.

That's some serious bike porn indeed.

Hung over at 7.44pm in the evening? Damn, that was some night! :twisted:

Love the lightweight disc and rotor crankset. Those cranksets would look great with our chainrings (or an alloy gloss black chainring for that matter).
