About the Slipstream DA;
All I know is that the combo 08 frame and 09 fork was the exact setup used for that extra long TT on the GIRO in O9.
The position I got the bike with was crazy, I could not hold for 5 km let alone 180! And the aero bottle would rest on the front wheel. Got rid of the carbon handlebars too, did not like the sensation.
-Seat post easy to adjust.
-The paint job is great.
-Fabrication is spotless.
-The older DuraAce is fitted. I don't like the new one.
-It rides like a road bike and is even capable on the pavé if you keep the speed up.
-Best climbing TT bike I've ever ridden.
-Easy to clean.
-Mounts on the home trainer Ok.
-I've ridden it "cyclo cross" across a flooded field to get to a T2 zone - It did great =)
-The rear brake is very hard to adjust - would have been easier to take a front brake and mount it UNDER the frame - Or a rear brake reversing the pads.
-The adjusting bolts in the rear entry drop outs are too small, and are in a size that does not correspond to ISO allen wrenches. I'll get them rebored someday.
-The head set is fiddly and badly designed - and creaks.
-A clicking from the bottom bracket that eludes me...
-In the rain + wind with 808's, it's a handfull, very nervous and prone to losing the front - more than other bikes I've ridden.
Overall, it's a wonderfull TT bike
