Is the preference of the Hed 3 over a Stinger 90 a result of the wind tunnel tests? I guess Bjorn's Choice of the stingers in the his relay adventure was just a course specific change.

I think Obree has been using the hands together approach in his TT's lately and he seems to have a nack of using positions that end up being very effective - I would quite like to see Bjorn try the his tuck position or the superman one ;-) .

I currently use the shallow extensions going straight out but I am tempted to try some deep extensions tilted in to bring the hands together but retain the same rise as the shallow extensions.

Sorry to hear that it's a custom stem. I have my adjustable in a similar position on My Softie (so no I'm not in the same position--my head tube is WAY taller than his and my legs WAY SHORTER) but would like to find a similar stem without spending a lot of $$$$$$.

I think Obree was running just one aerobar!

Anyone know if the pics earlier were from last weekend?

Currently have the Ritchey Pro Road adjustable stem and would still like to get lower. Bjorn was nice enough to tell me that previously he had used the ITM adjustable stem for 6 years. He had one break on him, hence the Hed custom stem. The Ritchey seems rock solid, but would like to try the ITM as it has a wider range of adjustment. Wonder if it's strong enough for mere mortals?

i think the 100K still had the hands apart. The Extreme had them together. Or maybe I've got that reversed...

Okay, I did some searches and can't find any pics...

Any one out there have pics of the old Scott Extreme and 100K bars?

Bjorn has in his arsenal of wheels the disk, trispoke pair, HED Stinger 90s and a few custom wheels and prototypes. Wheel selections will be made usually the AM of a race based on the weather and the course. The 90s and the trispokes behave differently in different conditions and courses. He will be road racing on Stinger 90s during the Tour of Belize and he will use 90s on certain courses and the disk tri, or disk 90 or trispoke pair on other courses and conditions.

If you get him any lower than he already is, he will be looking backwards while he is riding!

Hed had to make that out of Kryptonite to keep him from breaking it. Of course, that would slow him down.

Great site Felipe. Sandstorm is Sergio Jr's, favorite song. He says that just playing it in his head when TTing adds a couple of kph to his average speed ;).
Buena suerte!
Sergio

Thanks! I have seen the photos and updates on your kid and he seems to be on the correct route. Now tell him that if he is playing songs on his mind while TT'ing, he isn't going fast enough.

It is like Bjorn once said ( so I don't feel like I totally hijacked the guy's thread): " If you feel totally in control, you're not going fast enough."

I am not sure yet...either Clermont, New Mexico, or possibly Gainesville.

Although last time I was in Gainesville my training partner "MSTEIN" got a concussion when we had a big wreck on a training ride.......Christian was with us too.

I think Greg Welch won Hawaii in 1994 with a pair of those bars...

We are getting there, but he still needs to turn his head to look back ;-)

This is one of my favorite photos of Bjorn, borrowed from Tim Moxey of digitaltriathlon.com:

It's official, just like we suspected. Bjorn has a birth defect that forces him to ride in the fetal position. He has trained for many years an no longer sucks his thumb. That is left to those in his wake when they foolishly try to hold his wheel.

Thanks for your kind words Felipe. I spoke with Sergio Jr. over the phone. I gave him the link to your site. He thinks that your site is awesome.

He agrees with you that he would not play any song on his head at a race, but also mentioned that he loves to play Sandstorm (your site's theme song) in his head on training rides, even when pedaling hard. Maybe that shows that he is still just a kid :).

When I translated Bjorn's quote: "If you feel totally in control, you're not going fast enough", he immediately asked if this is the reason why he lost control of his right eye three days ago when he rode his P2SL faster than ever in one of his favorite routes. It scared him but he did not even flinched on his pedaling. I was very worried when he told me after finishing the ride that he lost again -after a long time of this not happening- control of his right eye (exotropic strabism). I think I know now why that happened and it is not as bad as it seems. It does have to do with him using a new stem, similar to the one Bjorn is using (see photo below). He is faster (and a happy kid) now in his new position, but we will have to work on that strabism.

Mis mejores deseos,

Sergio

But yet he's moved away from Rotors. Is that just a sponsor change thing or something more significant ?
