Jeff, if you're helmet's weight makes your neck sore, maybe you need to hit the gym and do some neck exercises???? :wink:

I don't ride in the drops enough lately, so the neck gets sore. Not any more though!

Helmet is 220g. :banana:

Good choice Thomas.

Very nice frameset Juan, what model is it exactly? Plasma 2? I thought it had the stem in line with the top tube?

What grade titanium is it?

It is a Plasma 2, the three has the stem built in. The 3's geometry just didn't work for me.

Nice! 8)

A friend of ours is the local Scott sales manager and he always has one of those handy for tt-ing on (and a Plasma 3 funnily enough). Built up, they really do look superb :D

Desoto limited edition #6 kit (400 mile bib short and jersey). One of my best ebay scores yet- under $75 shipped for both! Both are much nicer than the pics show- the other leg panel on the bib shorts you can't see matches the color shade/scheme on that side of the jersey'\.

I finally got around to upgrading my old disc wheel and picked up a new Zipp 900 yesterday.

For the last 10 years I have been racing TT's on an old Zipp 950 with screw on 8 speed cluster. This disc will continue to be used once converted for track use (still not sure if I can convert it to use on the front for Pursuits) or as another rear. I already have a Zipp Predator converted for the track, but as it's used on both timber and concrete I have a Vittoria Evo Cx. If I can't convert the 950 to a front wheel, I'll glue on a Pista tyre and use this wheel only indoors.
