with that stack height you are a good candidate for a Torhans bento and Glen Alden fairing or whatever Jesse Thomas is using.

Does anybody know what fairing Jesse Thomas is using? UPS just dropped off my frameset on my front doorstep. I can't wait to get home and start building it up.

Making progress. Just need to trim the seatpost about an inch and chop off all at usless sterrer tube. I'm also waiting on a few items to finish the build.

Here's my rough draft. Should be done in about a week with the build.

Hey Steve! What'll be the maiden race for the new bike? What group set you going with?

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!

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.

Did you get your fairing on the bike yet?

Yep, fairing is on and has been perfect so far. Have it loosely two side taped on and throw on a bit of electrical tape for races to make sure no race-day malfunctions... Probably should have cleaned up the bike before snapping the picture, but you get the idea.

Loving the bike so far after the first thousand miles.

For those that have been riding their DIMOND for a little while can people give me their impressions so far? I've been considering the DIMOND however as a bigger athlete 180lbs a stiff frame is a must. I had a felt b2 pro that I absolutely would abuse while climbing (you could hear and feel the frame flex while climbing). I've had a p5 for a while and love the stiffness/aero qualities of the bike but quite frankly it's a beast to travel with or work on and is not the lightest bike in the world. Yes I want the best of both worlds; I want a super light frame that is super stiff and climbs very well. So can anybody speak to the following?
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....

1. Bottom bracket and chainstays are crazy stiff. But I'm only 5'6" and 141lb. putting out about 300w on climbs.
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.

I never get a good feel for a bike until you actually race it. The first race is this weekend.

Hi Jordan, TJ, Jackmott, Jim@ERO, Desertdude, Rruff, Jonnyo and other aero gurus. With the lack of data floating around about the Dimond, may I ask if there is any particular aerobar/basebar (presuming they can be adjusted to the user's fit) that interacts best with the bike? Or does any nonintegrated headset retain its individual aeroness when attached to a Dimond? Considering the Ventus II, Profile Design Aeria, Tririg Alpha/X (depending on availability) and possibly the Zipp cockpits.
Thanks so much in advance for your opinions!

I am not aware of any testing of different cockpits on the bike. I'd be surprised if any was different on the bike than alone though. Ben Waite (waitebe) is the best guy to answer this. He does bar development at Zipp. We worked together on the Vuka Stealth.
