    My connection in the Butanese Time Trial Team's R & D Department is working wonders. In addition to passing the Team Time Trial prototype on to me (see earlier posting), he has now passed on Tzu Lompang's Aero TT prototype as they are building him a new one while he is recovering in hospital.
    The attached photo is of Tzu undergoing positioning adjustment tests on the bike just prior to taking it in the Wind Tunnel for its first run.
    I'm hoping to take it out today for a run down Suicide Hill. I'll let you know how it goes.

    My latest ride. Weighs about 15lb, will replace the pedals with Keywins soon I hope. I have AC420's for racing.

    It's true that alot of the importance is the pedler and not the bike, however a nice bike does motivate you to train harder.

    I hear the CR1 is being released in the US soon, is anyone looking at buying?

    Sort of a new / old bike: 1985 Reparto Corsa Bianchi SL/SP superset frame, decked out with a mix of Record / Chorus 9-speed parts, with a set of early 90's Athena single-pivot brakes. Wheels are Campy Chorus hubs laced 3x with DT Revs front and Revs NDS / Comps DS to Campy Omega Strada Hardox V tubular rims, running Conti Sprinters. Custom paint by Troy Courtney, a very small framebuilder in the western suburbs of Chicago.

    At the risk of assuming, where do you ride in the Chicago area?

    I am thinking of buying A Lemond BA. How dp you like the geometry and the carbon and steel mix now that you have had the bike for a while. I'm 5'11" and 173#. I've heard that the Lemond is built for a shorter leg and longer upper body, but the shop said that that was not really true and I should buy a bike that fits and not worry about what some of the reviews say. Your thoughts??
    thanks;)

    Mostly in the West Chicago, Wayne Township, Winfield, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton, Naperville area. This year I have not been able to do too much riding, and I end up taking my daughter out on the prairie path a lot (I ride an old Pinarello for that).
