Seeing Red.

Was a busy time the last coupla days. This weekend will see SRAM step up to the skinny tire plate for the first time, providing neutral spares support for the Herald Sun Tour.

Hours were poured into building sweet new spares bikes with the new RED grouppo (only sets in the country..life is tough eh...) and setting up a bucketload of Zipp wheels with cassettes and tires. No mucking about here folks..



Getting out for a sneaky ride on the stuff was a real treat..the braking power is off its trolley..and the shifting quality is far above anything else I've tried...all in a sub 2000gram groupset. Damn Id be trying to have a mechanical during the tour just to get on one of these bikes....
