Quote:A couple of quick questions: Are those Blackwells or old school (ie non-dimpled) 808s?
actually, they are dimpled 808s (pt2.4 rear)
Quote: Just wondering about your choice in wheelsets. Why no disc?
'cause that wheel also has a wheelbuilder disc cover (almost, but not quite as fast as the sub9). actually, the wheels, powermeter, crankset aren't really "sorted" yet.. that is just current running trim. Obviously the 808+cover won't work @ masters nats.
I have the fsa cronos on there now as the low q-factor. If the quarq comes out anytime soon, I will test it on these cranks and run a sub9. if not, I might try going back to my vista integrated crankset (which kills the crank based powermeter) and forces the 808 rear (or a replacement with the 1098!), but there is an overlap issue with the crank and the thick bb shell.
if I don't like the quarq, the SRM goes back on with sub9.
maybe with custom crankarms that match the narrow fsa crank...
Quote: Also, you seem to have your saddle adjusted pretty far back. Are you riding slack?
yup. I am not a triathlete and so my saddle position matches my road bike. I have no reason to ride steep as 1) I am flexible enough to hold the position and 2) there is no discernable drop in power despite the "closed" hip angle that the slack+LOW position creates.
I attribute that to years of specificity and trining/racing in essentially the same position for a long time.
