Have started to move more seriously into TT racing and possible long course, so a TT bike was in order (one that is UCI legal).
Earlt this year I managed to get my hands on a new old stock cannondale slice- the legacy one, the model that chrissie won on- for 550 bucks. Built it with a spare 105 group and i bought a nice cockpit at a good price- pro missile alloy with profile design clip ons (older j2 bracket but f40 armrests) and zipp evo extensions. Its a clean setup and I have a good position (I think.) I really like the bike and especially considering i got it on the cheap it was a great deal. I already have the acessories I need- quarq, zipp 404, disc wheel (a cheap one with narrow rim)- so its about close to as fast as it can get. The only aero upgrade i can think of is a tririg brake and maybe a stem for better cable routing but those would be rather small gains at most.
Recently though i've had the oppotunity to buy some second hand newer bikes locally - bikes like the slice rs, plasma 3, speed concept , newer argon 18s- for also decent prices. I could afford to get one, but really wouldnt want to as it would be an unplanned purchase and the slice I have now is still new.
I guess my question is- is the slice still competitive with say bikes like the current p3 (heard it's not uci legal, though) , or even compared to the current superbikes? Given that most of it's use would be time trialing my thinking is I would not benefit much from most of the integration for nutrition thats present in the current crop of superbikes. Have seen info where the legacy slice is slower than a shiv tt or a p3 by ~ 10 watts which seens quite abit, but my thinking is the gal could probably be narrowed with a good choice of a bar.
