Super proud to have worked with Dave at Zipp. One of the brightest guys I know and I couldn't be happier with the bike!
I wish I would have seen these in person before buying a new P5!!! I saw Dimond booth at Oceanside and fell in love with the bike. If someone wants a basically brand new P5 with less than100km on it, I'll buy one of these!
What do you love about it?
What do you dislike about it?
I would love to answer all these questions, but I've really be slacking with getting my build finished. Life and training are getting in the way. I just need to take a few hours and finish it. That said, I love the engineering that went into this frame. I've got a lot of experience in working with carbon (making prototype motorcycle body work for my race bikes) and I was highly impressed when I took a real close look at the insides of the frame.
Loving the bike so far after the first thousand miles.
machines don't win races, muscles do.
1. How is the stiffness of the bike?
2. While climbing do you notice any "give" due to the lack of down tube?
3. How does the weight stack up to the P5?
Yes I'm aware that I could solve the weight issue by eating less sandwhiches....
2. None. It is a different feeling at first as the beam has some flex in it that aids in comfort, but the rigidity of the BB and chainstays are what matters when climbing anyhow.
3. Never weighed the bike
I'm completely in love with the bike so far. On a 20 mile loop that I've ridden more times than my Garmin can count, I set a new PR that was 00:01:03 faster than I've ever done the loop on my Shiv. The time savings was nice but after 20 hard miles, I was able to jump into my shoes and run feeling better than I ever have coming off the bike. That is a huge plus for me as I'm used to needing a mile or two to get my legs under me on the run.
Thanks so much in advance for your opinions!
