Shame the chain isn’t on the smallest gear let alone not being on the big ring! :sunglasses:

That baby would sure be a thrill in a crosswind :sweat_smile:

That front brake is not exactly aero

What’s going-on with the cable on the downtube too; never seen that on a Zipp frame before.

I love how the cowhorns & levers completely negate any benefit from the wing bar profile :rofl:

Oh agreed, it’s an abomination in so many ways which is why it’s so crazy. They’ve gone to so much trouble in some areas and it’s horrific in others. Just look at all that clagg under the bars for example.
As much as I love that front wheel set up, how many bearings/rollers would it need to support that rim externally?
It’s a perfect example of just because you can doesn’t mean you should, but I love anything like that.
Ps. What’s the deal with that saddle, is falling off the back a problem?

Back in the early 90s there was a niche for saddles with a back to them, so you could push against it to generate more force. Eddy Merckx did a u-shaped bar that would attach to a saddle for that purpose. I never saw any of these in the wild, only in magazine adverts!
