I used to Time trial a lot. It was a good way to train for mountain bike racing mainly at Mammoth. Anyway, the buddy that got me to train on road bikes is a National Time trial champion. We all trained together for years. I can't remember what year he won but his name was Tim LaFromboise. I was pretty fast, but I started about 4-5 people ahead of him, in our local monthly time trial. But I hated that disc sound when he would catch me. I would hear that puppy a couple minutes before he caught me then for a couple minutes after he passed. It reminded me of a couple guys sawing a log. The other thing I noticed about the REALLY good TT guys is when they finished they had slobber all over themselves. Somehow they could dig deeper than the regular good time trialers. They would have strings of slobber hanging from
their mouth to the bike all over the place. He was the main cog on the RAAM teams too. Race across America. We had some good riders up there in the desert. I need to get back on my litespeed so I can ride my carbon stumpjumper FSR up here in the mountains.

Ha. ME, too many of something??? coming from Mooty It's a family stable of bikes, well, kind of...
Not sure on the Roubaix axle spacing. I believe it will take any. Hope so... as I may upgrade one day.

I figure the sea sucker on rear glass and wing is better than on roof stripes... Wing is indeed slightly concave but I left it on overnight and no suction loss whatsoever. I'll try with winter Diverge first!
