Jolly good show! I still haven't unleashed my TT bike in anger. Even a slight breeze makes it 'interesting!'

this thing is fine in the wind what ever angle... it is the hills that mess me up, it weighs 29lbs without bottles and tools... I had 4 large bottles in the 100 miler.... about an extra 10 lbs !

I'm finding it hard to sort the BB on mine - the shell is too wide for anything I've got.

yeah the chainline was a bit of a pain to set up..... especially as I am using a modified cassette sprocket :)
You might have to spend some cash on a bb :lol:
