BTW. These are 20 grams lighter than my Gravitas that will eventually work their way to my tt bike.

Yes, those are Shimano pads as the Gravitas do not come with pads and that is great by me since I prefer SwissStop green pads anyway.
For my next trick I will set myself on fire!

Juan,
That's some photoshoot. Anymore pics and I would have asked where the naked chicks were! :)

Will do Boonen. I have a new Planet X track frame that I'll be building up to use primarily for the IP. This build is unfortunately down the list of mechanical work I have to do on my bikes, so will be a little while...

That's exactly what I was thinking. Are they different colours or is that just a trick of the light? I'd love to see them on the bike when it's ready.... :D

A pair of Russians! Haven't seen them used in years. The NSW girls used to use them and Tess Downing from Melbourne used to have one. Bought them from the VIS?

Still a few floating around Masters racing here in Vic. :wink: Ended up buying from Tony Gavan who had bought them from Chris Hunt...

I will use these purely for the IP, as I have a converted Zipp Predator and Zipp 950 disc (later I still need to convert the axle and will glue on a Pista Evo CS) and Hed Stinger 90 and Zipp 404 with bolt on skewer for racing all other events...

Nice shoes!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
