The REAL Bjorn Pjorn
Quote | Reply
So we had fun with some one off HED wheels that they made for us.... behold, Bjorn's 2007 Race Steed

Cervelo P3C size 56CM
HED Carbon one piece bars with Prototype Clamp setup (fixed from Silverman :-))
180 Campy Crankset to work with Ergomo BB 58x44 chainrings
Ergomo Pro with Proto type softare firmware
Look Keo Pedals
Full Shimano DA drive train
Zero Gravity Brakeset
SLR Saddle with cut off nose to meet UCI regulations
One of the race wheelsets that Bjorn will be using... that is the new HED all carbon disk
Custom stem made by HED to stiffen the front end

Note the bar setup. Jason and Bjorn have been working closely with the guys over at HED to reconfigure Bjorn's front end as well as positioning, so he can present a lower and smaller frontal profile to the wind while maintaining his power output...

Nice. Not as psychedelic as with the other wheels but nice.

hahah i knew it was bjorn's bike from the beginning, when bjorn wrote what idiot would ride that, i thought definitely bjorn seeing as how the bars are almost touching the front wheel, quite frankly I dont know of anyone else who's nose touches the front wheel other than bjorn. nice bike bjorn, i thought the wheels were better on the other one though. it's still cool to see what HED can do custom now.

Why don't y'all just cut to the chase and switch his front wheel with his big chain ring, for chrissakes?

I got a nose bleed just looking at that!!

Questions:

Why was there Campy Record on it yesterday?

Different tires front and rear?

HED makes stems?

How does he hold those s-bends? It looks like they are almost touching each other.

I've been studying this photo. Would it be possible to get a youtube video of the wheel spinning?

Is anyone photoshop-savy enough to change the red to white on the rear wheel? I think that would look great but don't have the software or know how.

What's with the electrical tape over the bottom half of the Ergomo computer? Is Bjorn afraid to see how fast he's going?

This is how he is holding his hands- together.
Also, the only thing campy in the other photos is the crankset which it still is campy.

The below pics are from when we were out testing the new bike and bars before the custom HED stem was put on.

The tape- we cover up some data while riding.

Call R&A, it is the HED CPU mount and I think is around $15 or so.

Sweet bike ! Couldn't help but notice that the stem is a 2 bolt set up to the HED bar.....is that enough to hold a watt-monster like Bjorn ?? I'd MiG-weld that puppy once he's dialed in. Thanks for sharing Al !
