TriRig Alpha One

I guess since Jim says it's awesome I should go ahead and just send my money over now, even though my Alpha X bars work just fine. I'm curious to see how this bar improves on the Alpha X.

I was going to start a thread to see everyone’s guesses on the improvement over the alpha x.

I’ll start.... 10 watts or 3 min over an IM.

Yeah I already asked him on IG if I could go ahead and send him my money, no response lol.

I think the main improvement is going to be ease/quickness of adjustment, not necessarily that much more aero. And that is reason enough for me to buy it and sell my alpha x as I'm planning to go see Jim in a couple of months. Being able to make changes quickly during aero testing should be huge.

I thought the alpha x was supposed to be super adjustable already. Is there really that much room for improvement?

There is always room to make minor changes, call them game changers, upgrades etc and cause everyone to want to pay more money for your product. See Apple.

I bet it will be pretty cool though. I’m looking forward to at least seeing it.

Reminds me of this...

If you put someone on a fit bike and get there exact measurements, then the alpha x is pretty awesome. Except you have to buy an additional tilt kit if you want to angle your arms up. And you have to buy an additional adapter if you want your pads slammed with the extensions in line with the base bar.

But if you want to tinker it is a complete pain in the ass. Have to swap out little spacers and every time you do that you have to basically take the thing completely apart and put it back together again. Very time consuming.

it's pretty much like this with every bike. If you have Di2 or eTap it becomes a little bit easier but still.

Can you hit any reach numbers ( with in reason)? The pad adjustments look pretty large 20 mm and no stem adjustment. I'm not super happy with my Zipp Vuka but I'm really dialed in so I'm hesitant to change.

Did you use the calculator on the website? If you are locked in on a specific stack and use of stem shims vs pad shims (like if you want to completely slam the stem and only use pad spacers), then you only have 3 reach options. But the pads are pretty large and can accommodate you moving in between the 3 fixed positions.

it was super adjustable. but not super duper adjustable. its one achilles adjustment heel was in length: it was a long bar, and didn't adjust back as well as it adjusted in every other plane.

I hope:
  1. Enough of the one bolt, steerer crushing (at below specified torque) stem. 2 bolt works just fine thanks.
  2. Improve the wire routing. Some holes/routing are unusable due to carbon pieces blocking the path.
  3. Make room for the Blip Box or please talk Sram into improving their monstrosity.
  4. Integrate the Hydration (see Profile Design for ideas but ignore their use of a 2lb stem).
  5. Don't take everyone's money with the promise of a totally unrealistic delivery timeframe (see TriRig or Tesla for examples)

Otherwise, still love the Alpha X.
