Dave’s naked TT
I have had many people admire my time trial bike over the years, with it’s custom fork/bar/aerobar assembly, but no-one else had yet had a low enough position to warrant a similar design. Until now! Dave is a local rider (who had better not start going quicker than me with his new bike….) who wanted a full Di2 machine, and opted for a clearcoat over the polished bare steel for a unique look. Eric at Colorworks masked off and sandblasted the logos in first. The bike features a TRP timetrial V-brake on the back of the fork blades (which required the cable to pass through the steerer tube), with a TriRig Omega brake tucked under the chainstays. There is a custom battery inside the seattube, with a micro-usb port for charging located in the back of the seatmast cap (which will normally have a rubber cover) . Fully built up as shown the bike weighs in at exactly 18lb. Many thanks to Tina Buescher for the superb photography.
