Less than 9 minutes. Brake cables are the only thing that new to be changed and those are now cut to length. It's really quick and simple. Just like the good mistress that she is. :wink:

Not a chance. She is all woman all the time. But you are a funny, funny man!

You need one of these for your bike to get it a bit lighter. 170g complete.

That's tempting. My current saddle and seat post is 270g.

Finalized Vicky build after having the TT position dialed in. 30k TT on Sunday - that's going to HURT.

You need to shrug and turtle more to close the gap between your back and helmet. 8)

Best of luck with your ITT. I've been racing an ITT nearly every weekend for the last couple of months as part of our winter road season. The ITT's are a mix on distances, but mostly around 20km's; which is usually long enough time for me in the pain cave. Have just raced two 40km ITT's in the last month; long time to go full gas!! :twisted:

I presume that Jeff will be looking forward when he's riding in which case that gap will shut. At least I hope he will be looking forward.... :grin:

Good luck with the TT tomorrow. 8)

I am not sure he will be looking forward the whole time but the box behind him sort of shows how the wind should flow and I would assume that the wind would make the jump over the gap and onto his back.

There isn't much looking forward or the head goes too high. That's why I mapped out the course and put the mileage of each turn on my aerobars - that way I know when I need to look up to get ready for each turn. My SRM will alternate time and mileage every 3 seconds so I can keep track.

I just wish that I had good fitness - the legs aren't that great right now, but I have went to this TT for the last 3 years (because a friend has a party by the start finish line every year) but I have never raced. I might as well set a time to beat for next year, right?

And for a trip down memory lane - this was the old TT bike

And the old TT position:

Quite the difference in stem angle at aerobar length. The P3C was a 51 and Vicky is a 54.

What's the horizontal distance from the bb to the shifters?

And I love your plan.

Hope noone parks his car on the course.

Seriously? My goodness, I hope that it's a closed road TT? All the TT's over here are open road and I've heard of at least three riders who've been killed because they weren't looking where they were going, one into a parked car and another into a truck that braked sharply, the third was into a traffic queue. Stay safe!
