What you getting for the back wheel?
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Possibly another HED3 (apparently it's easy to convert the hubs) or a deep section aero wheel, like an 808 or Dura Ace Carbon.

You can get the HEDs for absurdly low prices on track/fixed speed specific websites, they just don't come up too often.

Nice !

I like Scotts. I had a Plasma TT frame a few years ago. Very light and well made.

I like those wheels too.

I've just bought a Colnago Extreme Power with Record 10. But no pictures yet.........one day..............

[quote="JohnBarleycorn"] Extreme Power

!! Are you sure you are still able to live up to that name?! I find it hard enough with the Master Olympic. I think I have the Master(s) part down all right tho.

Its an over compensation thing !

I was looking for the Colnago Pussy Cat.....made from cardboard, but they didn't do one. So I went to the other extreme !

Actually, I'm not too far off my normal power. I'm about 10% down at the moment. I've been doing lots of riding in America, and feel quite strong. I've lost a load of weight too. I'm quite ripped now, so that makes me feel stronger, especially on the hills, even if the power figures are down a bit.

But yes......I can't ever justify an Extreme Power.............Extreme Poseur ? :D

just make sure your weight loss is at least 10% as well, then you're actually better off than before :D

Haha! Awesome, I like the Extreme Poseur. In fact, I think I have seen a few of that model of Colnago around town. :)

It must be nice riding in some warmth and sun for a change!

I'm about 7% lighter, I think. So I am definitely faster on the climbs, but not quite as quick on the flat. But I'm not training for top end speed at the moment, so thats ok.

Its great to be riding in the heat. Its usually over 100 degrees, and sometimes 110, and always sunny. I could get used to this !

Back in England for a while next week, and going to do some off road stuff ! Put it down ot heat stroke...... :D .....
