I don't think I'd mentioned this before, but two of those wheel would be illegal for time trialling in the UK (I think). The Zipp 1080 is certainly not allowed and I have a feeling that the FFWD wouldn't be either. Good old UK :(

Well done! About the only thing I would do different would be to use the Simkins Egg Brake.
For my next trick I will set myself on fire!

Why not?

But in return, I have seen many pictures of TT riders in UK Time Trial forum running with unapproved TT helmets.

What is the material on your brake grip area?

Well, this is the first time I have looked at this. Damn. Mighty fine. I love those bars! Do you have any pics of you on the bike in full TT setup?
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Nice position! I hate seeing an awesome TT bike with a pilot that's just horribly positioned.

Some upgrade for my TTX 8)

154gram Campagnolo 11 Speed carbon barend shifter, now 149gram but I had to modify them to fit into my Wasle Bar2 TT bar.
85gram Campagnolo carbon TT brakes levels.

Campagnolo's brake levels are much better to hold than SRAM TT900's and Campagnolo 11Speed ​​Barend changing a lot better than SRAM R2C which I have used until now.

How do you find the Mavic IO Morten? I'm thinking of something similar for the track but tossing up whether to get something 90mm ish deep instead. Howe does it compare to something like the 808 zipp for speed and stability?

I bought it from a friend who had found it on ebay.

The wheel had some breaks in the carbon, a Danish shipyard shift has made ​​it so for me, so it is 100% as new.

Mavic IO wheel is more sensitive to the wind than Zipp 808, but less than Zipp 1080th Mavic IO wheel has ceramic bearings and is incredibly easy running, it's the coolest TT front-wheel I have been using to date.
