Cool pics ATMO. Thx for posting those!

Steve Hed is awesome. He did my TT position and I have never gone faster on the flats. Can climb in the bars and everything...

He told us to use dual Tri-Spokes unless there is absolutely no wind and the course is dead flat.

Thanks Shino Bro. I like them too. Mt. Borah really did a nice job with everything.

No. Steve and his cohort set me up on a trainer and had all sorts of tools and laser/ninja type stuff. We opted out of the wind tunnel. To much flying around and Steve claims he can set people up just as good if not better without the wind tunnel.

interesting, he has thought about and worked so much on air flow, maybe he can see the vorteces.

you are looking great on that machine, in a nice position and superfit. I hope your year continues to grow in excellence and success.

btw, i have one of the hed tt machines and its a great bike, very nice to ride on the bars, wish i could do it some justice.

Justin;

I find it interesting that your S-bend bar extensions appear to be rotated inwards at about a 30 degree angle each.

It almost appears as if your fingers are crushed together between the bars.

Did Steve give any specific aero reason for this or was it a comfort thing for your overall position? Does it bug your hands at all?

Keep up this great start to your season,

BK

The positioning gives you that nice bullet shape. Nice pictures...thanks for sharing "e" & "f".

Bruce,

Steve Hed "rolled" my shoulders by placing lifters underneath the forearm rests. This decreases frontal area significantly. It also means you need to roll the bars inwards to compensate.

The position itself is comfortable for having my head as low as my hips and my fore arms slammed together. I did a lot of riding up canyons in the bars to get comfortable in the position. Handling the bike can be tricky but it just takes a lot of practice. Key is to stay in the aero bars as much as possible. On the flats, around sweeping corners, up the climbs. That 40K I did last week I only go out of the bars on a couple fast/tight corners.... so by my count 3 times over the course of the effort.

The head on shot is telling. No belly hangin there even though many pros show a little. Good health and form to you. :beer:

You look great, Flux. And your knees look awfully smooth. Gillette Venus?

Figured that he was a belly breather at that level of the sport, factored that in...

Damn fast by the looks if it.
Your hand/wrist/forearms are perfectly level even under real TT speed pressure. Your head is also very low. That says a lot about Hed's experience in setting you up on the trainer. That gismo I have seen in pics for measure shoulder width looks pretty cool.
I am assuming that you have a TT bike to train on at home then. I recall FL saying that even a few years ago Postal/Disco wouldn't let riders have home TT bikes. Times have changed and KBS sure is hooking you up!

I appreciate the aeasthetics of the human body on a bike.
I wish I looked like that.

What you don't notice is the double espresso cup holder neatly hidden behind the seat mast. That's class.
