Lynskey Helix. DA-9000. Zipp 303.

Postby wheeledwidewebb » Sat Feb 22, 2014 17:20 pm

In an effort to tempt some decent weather our way I am hoping the weather gods will smile fondly on me for treating my Helix to a new DA9000 group and some new 303 tubs.

It pleases me anyway.

I know I should slice some of that steerer off and I am not sure that the stem isn't a little short but there is time to fettle before summer comes.

Easton forks, deda stem and a Thompson seatpost... You need some coordination, man!

There's nothing for it but to give it to me and then you can start over ;)

Nice. Such sterling work indeed deserves the good fortunes of the weather Gods.

I wouldn't hold your breath though! Besides its titanium, Rule 5 applies get out there you big jess
or give it to me for my Turbo :)

Thanks for the comments everyone, I will weigh it and post it up.

The stem will end up as a Thomson, I just grabbed what I already had to be honest.

When that stem is slammed, you'll have a real mean bike. I'm hoping to see more Ti and SS in races. It's a beauty, I like.

If only there was a like button for this.

Nice ride btw OP. Is the helix good for something other than looking snazzy? Although as we all know the snaz is the most important part 8)

I think the fancy tube profile helps with stiffness - surely a load of old cods I reckon. I just like it for being different.
