I ordered on the 4th and I was quoted 15 days + 4 days for shipping on my project one. 3 days ago, they told me it was delayed to arrive on the 29th. Today they told me I have to wait another 7-10 business days. Would it be possible for you to check on the status on my bike? It’s been getting delayed over and over.

I know this thread has been mostly questions, but figured I would share a pic of my bike, now that I have a decent one. Still the middle color does not photograph well, it is actually the Radioactive Pink, but never looks it in photos.

Thanks, suppose I should post that to the Flo show me your wheels forum. Would love brighter colored stickers to closer match bike, but they match fairly well. Was fun to ride this past year, and since it was my first tri-bike, I wanted to do something different.

Got a hell of a deal from my LBS on that Project One (pretty sure he ate most of his profit), but I guess it could also be him compensating me for all the free computer work I had done over the last few years for him.

Not to Chris specifically.

Tried searching but didn't get anything - is there any aero data with the speed box? Better with or without? The setup I've got lends itself to not needing it for flat storage- but would keep if aero benefit. I'm guessing not as it is kinda large and wider than the seat tube.

Anyone know or can direct me where this info is posted?
Thanks!

IIRC there's a white paper that has all sorts of data (with and withough speed box, Speed fin, UCI vs non UCI, etc). I think I remember there being a minimal difference if any whether it was on or not.

Can't remember where I found that white paper though.

IIRC the mk1 was the same with and without the box. The current one is slightly better with the draft box and little bit more than that for the fin. Not earth shattering reductions in drag but worth it if the rules you ride under allow it.

As above, hunt out the white paper for the details.

That’s the one thanks. That and the Madone one are good read. While we’re on aero stuff, Flo’s blog is tip top too. http://flocycling.blogspot.co.uk/...h/label/Aerodynamics

I did not check out the document that was linked to, but my understanding is that it is better with the "draft box", and that with the speedbox on the top tube it is pretty much the same or better.

What is that cycling computer mount? I've been looking for one I could use with torpedo.

It came with my XLabs kit. I believe it is the one below.

They also have the 2 below.

Does anyone know if it is safe to move the SC elbow pads in so far that there is only one screw holding them down? Any other solutions for getting elbows all the way in?

Use different pads... Zipp Vuka work fine and tririg ergo as well. I had both, I just installed the tririg ones and they are super nice. I have them close enough to fit a bottle cage in between and I could use three bolts if needed. The bottom of the pads is pretty flat and the tririg pads have a ton of holes to choose from.
I would not ride with only one bolt in there

Do you think it's possible to get the tririg ones so they touch in the middle? That's basically what I'm aiming for.
