Hey mate...
Nice bike :-) have you got the universal extension mount fitted, or just the monoextension? I just ordered a SC and am wondering whether to order the uni mount as I normally ride with the aerobars rotated in a little? How do you find it?
Cheers, Jeremy

I have the mono plug. You can use any extension. I purchased it in trek's online shopping page.

Cheers for replying...
Did you start off with the stock extension and then find that you like mono plug better?

The HOW and the WHY...! And let me just say, you can't have much more fun than this for £360 GBP (about $550 USD) (without visiting a high class brothel).

Hello to Slowtwitch Community !

I'm a french cyclist, aged 23. My favorite discipline is Time Trial. No tri so far unfortanely. My passion is to build bikes combining aéro, beauty, and lightness, with an excellent value of money. Here's a bunch of bikes I assembled.
The first two were my bikes for my 2014 season. The last are those I currently use. There are all mounted witk Keo Blade 2 Cr 12 pedals. Whatever seasons & bikes, all tires are Conti Gatorskin 22 mm.

Enjoy !

Why in the world would you ride Gatorskins when so may tyres have been proven to be SO MUCH faster?

Why Gatorskin ?

Because the price is low (38€), this tire is also resistant, and its rolling resistance even if its not excellente is rather good. 7 or 8 bars if the floor isn't wet for my 60 kilos and here we go.
Another point, each ride I leave without anything (pomp, Co2 or tire) because I Know the won't be any puncture. Even during my trip (440 kms) with my Venge i took anything. In one season and 9200 kms browsed, I punctured once during a race with a 4200 kms tyre at 40 KPH in a pothole in a peloton.
Finally, as I ride 6 days out of 7, with Gatorskin I don't have to inflate my tires each time. 5 minutes saved, and 10 if it's my TT bike with the disc wheel.

I would to precise so far I tested Mavic Yksion, and schwalbe One (btw I slipped in a descent with those fucking tires).

@Dark speed : Thanks mate. Yes I know but it's not my fault ! http://www.tesla-bikes.com/
However, sometimes I pretend to have one...

Gatorskins do not have rolling resistance even remotely resembling "good".

Easily the worst collection of excuses I've ever seen to run rubbish tires. If you don't want to deal with latex tubes then you should at least run Conti Podium TT's.

BTW- riding unsupported for 440km without spares is neither big nor clever.

Podium TT are good but I don't have 70€ to put in one tire. With 70€, i can nearly buy a pair of Gatorskin. And, don't forget that I use two bikes at the same time, so I have 4 tires to remplace. 4x70 = 280€ whereas 4x38= 152€.
Finally, I've never said that riding unsupported is big or clever. It's my method, I assume all consequences.
Now I think we can focus on another thing than tires. It like tastes and colours, everyone has its own point of view.

You have five bikes, multiple wheelsets (including a Corima wheel), and still can't afford to spend money on a proper set of tires. The power of rationalization.

With 70€ you can buy Conti Attack/Force. You can get Michelin Pro4 for even less. As far as tubs are concerned, you just need to look for deals. They're easy enough to find and I've bought loads of fast tubs (including Podium TT) in your budget. I'd rather replace my saddle with a belt sander than ride Conti Gatorskins again...

If you look closely I shown you 4 bikes and not 5. More, in my introduction I said that the first two are not in my possession yet. If i prefer to spend money on frame and wheels instead of expandables what's the problem ?

I regret my clarification about tires. It was just a precision. I'm open to new tires. But, it's clear that I will clearly prefer Conti to Michelin. I will try Attack/Force for my next shift. I got this idea in my mind. I was waiting for the moment to replace them.
Btw, the saddle is a key tool of the bike. For instance, ISM was to soft for me. With the sitero, power is transmitted better.

Belt sander transmits power just fine.

I hope that "S-Works" frame doesn't fall apart on you

No it was a very good copy. The carbon was T800 insteaf of the T1100 for the original. The frame was light, aero. The only probleme was the lack of rigidity at the back. But it doesn't prevent me to make some podiums, even if the finish was in a climb.
For your guidance, I paid this frame 360€ unused.
