Racing Season in Progress and Additional Bike Updates

It was good to get the bike Time Trial race season underway a couple of weeks ago, we are now preparing for the Fisk Knob TT in Cedar Springs Michigan on the 15th. of April.  This race has a lot of climbing so we are looking at reducing weight as much as we can on the bike, and ourselves :o).  With this in mind, we have upgraded the wheel skewers to a lighter design.  These skewers have titanium shafts and low profile end as shown in the pictures, these come in at 30 grams per pair, very nice.  Also, we are replacing all the standard screws on the bike with titanium fasteners where possible.  Also, due to the need to shift from the large and small chainring a couple of times, we have outfitted the bikes with chain-catchers on the front deraillers just for shifting insurance.  Stay tuned for further updates.

First Colavita / Zipp TT Race Update (Casstown, OH) - Results

Robbie and I had a good first race of the season start in Casstown, OH last Sunday competing in the Colavita / Zipp TT series race.  It was a pretty desent day weather wise, in the low to mid-50's with some wind coming out of the north.  The race route was a rectangular shaped loop that was just short of 10 miles .  Robbie's start time put him on course with a light mist of rain going on but eventually dried up during the day.  Overall, we did pretty well for the first race (see results links). Robbie raced in the Junior class, while I raced in the 50-59 year old age bracket class as well as the Category 1 class.

We are now gearing up for the Fisk Knob TT in Cedar Springs, Mi. in two and a half weeks,  it will be good to race in Michigan.

First Time Trial Race of 2012 takes place on Sunday

We are well into the preperation work for the upcoming time trial race in Casstown, Ohio on Sunday.  This is the first race of the year for Robbie and I, and we are looking forward to the season getting under way.  Training has been going well all winter, as well as some of the bike projects were have been working on. 

We are getting a lot of requests for the cable cover that fits the Trek Speed Concept as well as crankset covers that can be used on any bike.  Below are just a couple of pictures as a couple of cable covers right out of the molds.  They look pretty spidery at first, but once cleaned and trimmed they start looking like the final product.  Check them out.
