That looks fast just standing still. Are you going to keep its triathlon set-up or put some road bars on?

Those rear drop-outs extending past the bottom of the seat-stays always take me back... :D

Yep, it does look fast, especially with those 650c wheels....

No really a triathlon rider so I am thing of keeping the bullhorn bars but putting down tube shifters.....not to sure yet......

I also have some road bars and sti levers as well, so might go that way as well.....

I thought those wheels looked small! Looks great at any rate. The French frame builder François Kerautret (his company is FKC Concept) makes some tasty bikes with 650C wheels, reckons it's the future.

Not as tasty as your avatar though. I hope you've won a prize or something for that.

I always wanted one of these BITD, it was there Time Trial Triathalon frame, I think the geomatary is designed for riding on the areo bars and is a little steeper than on the normaol road frame.

Yes, it is designed with that setup with the angles for riding on the aero bars....so how it will go converted to normal drop bars I don't know....

The 650c wheels are suppose to fast at acceleration etc.....

Havent taken it out yet.....will see how it rides.....

So have changed the whole handlebar setup to the standard drop bars....

Also changed the shifters to downtube 105 and the pedals to Shimano Look compatible....black seatpost and black stem.....

The bike is looking really good, drop bars look fine. I am rebuilding a Cannondale myself at the moment, just hope it will look as good as yours. Have you ridden it yet?
