I got sick of trying to wrench a bottle out of mine, so it is now the world's most expensive flat kit carrier.

BTA and an aero bottle on the seat tube.

I toyed with the idea of cutting the back off, don't blame you. Definitely a pain.


After that endorsement... Anyone want to trade for the tri7?

Curious why you don't use the mount back there? Did you anticipate using it and not like it?

Have the same saddle, and it's a little hard to reach, but worth it over putting a bottle on the frame IMO.

I used it once in a 100 and the bottle ejected at around 5 miles. Also it's really difficult to replace the bottle and any aero savings over an aero ST bottle are negated by faffing. I like the carbon extension as it makes it super easy for helpers to hold the bike for the start.

Ejection: Gorilla XT cages?

Faffing: Just practice it? I can get a bottle in and out of my BTS cage with the other arm still in the aerobars.

Either your arms are 6 feet long or you have a fairly lax position. It's easier to get the bottle back into a cage on the Sitero and even that was a huge pain in the ass (keep in mind the bottle sits horizontal). Not to mention that a cage back there obstructs my rear light...
10 miles - no bottle
25 miles - no bottle
50 miles - small bottle BTA
100 miles - Profile Design FC 35 and aero bottle on seat tube (that's only needed if it's warm and if I'm supported I just need one BTA bottle
12 hour - Bottle BTA and aero bottle on seat tube (only if laps are over 25 miles)

Might be an arm-length thing then... 50 miles with one bottle? I envy your weather conditions then.

Still a nice bike. That kit will not be the limiting factor.

Borrowed a bike from one buddy (don't currently have a tri bike) and wheels from another (don't currently have race wheels, either.)
What I ended up with is a late 90's(?) 9 speed with wheels that are prolly worth 3 times the frameset, lol.
Still, very grateful to have a sturdy and good looking bike for tomorrow's race. That Slice feels sexy :-)

That bike was plenty fast when it was new, hasn't slowed down since then!

Wow, great ride. A question, what is the nationality indicated by the flag on the top tube? Serbia?

Thanks :)
Yes, I am from Belgrade, Serbia. I can't believe that someone actually recognize the flag :)
Same as Russian, just ours is up side down :)

No, the russian flag is the same as yours, it is their flag that is upside down ...


And your bike is amazing.

Thanks! I was undecided about a paint scheme this winter so I stripped it, fixed a little ding, and shot it white. The graphics were made by my dad so I can remove them when I decide exactly what it is I'll do for a final paint job.

+1, beautiful paint job and so much better than the majority of Cervelo´s in-house efforts. Top work.

Last time I posted in here, I had two nice bikes. I've essentially traded two nice bikes (NP2 and SW Tarmac) for one world-class bike here, in an effort to break the n-1 rule (n-2?). I'd say I came out WAY ahead.
She's amazing.

First tri bike, Pic was taken on a training ride for IMUK - hence 3 bottles - really enjoying it. Still dialling in my position
