Pedal Force TT Bike

Postby colm_gti » Sat Dec 22, 2012 18:27 pm

I recently picked this up to add to my growing fleet, now 3 bikes strong along with http://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12872684 and http://www.bikeradar.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40044&t=12886887.

Following a decent season of road racing at cat 4, I discovered not only the weaknesses I needed to work on for 2013, but also some of the events I performed well in....most of those being TT's! As a result, I figured I may hop on board the sky ethos and focus on marginal gains. With this in mind I figured I should invest in a TT bike. I had initially planned to pick up bits and pieces over the coming months and hang them all on a Ribble TT frame before the 2013 season really kicked off. That was until this popped up for sale locally for €950. I waited a few weeks before making a cheeky offer of €550....and a few messages later I was on my way to pick it up for €600 (minus the wheelset)! I couldn't say no....

It's a pedal force carbon TT frame with a full ultegra 6600 groupset, dura ace shifters, a one piece carbon profile design stem and base bar, and profile design carbon stryke aero bars.

Unfortunately the upward sloping aero extensions aren't to my liking, so I went out and picked up a pair of T2+ aero extensions to switch over to. I also took the opportunity to renew the inner and outer gear cables, and added some bar tape to tidy it up and add a splash of brightness to the bike....

Next on my list is a new pair of farsports 50mm tubs for road racing and TT's.....

We're not that bad off yet ;)

Took it out for its maiden voyage today....my first spin ever on a dedicated TT bike (as opposed to a road bike with clip on aero bars)....it's certainly faster!!
