A really fast Aeroracer that I built without compromise for a truly competitive bike for elite class racing. I used it half the season in 2017 and 2018-2019. After that, I didn’t do much mileage, because I slow down and mostly commute to and from work with my CX.
Components have been carefully chosen, but the wheels are from HED with an ultra-modern inner width of 21mm. Wide, low-profile aluminum rims with a carbon fiber “sliver” mean comfort is at its peak while being extremely aerodynamic. Edge height is 90mm in the rear for overhead aerodynamics and 60mm in the front to handle strong gusts. I opted for the fastest possible tire combination with 23mm front and 25mm rear (they measure 26 and 27-28mm on these wide rims), but if you want to increase comfort, you can switch to 25/28mm or 28/28mm. The brakes are Direct Mount with dual pivots on each brake, giving increased stiffness and response. The brake surfaces on the rims are aluminum and have a HED Turbine surface, with a pattern that provides very good braking action (even in the rain). Carbon fiber brake surfaces really lie ahead when it comes to braking performance in the rain.
The wheels are tubeless compatible and you can also get tubeless valves from Schwalbe.
The handlebars are from Cervélo and provide maximum aerodynamics, but the flexibility to change the length of the torso if you want.
I did a full service with every single part of the bike checked and cleaned. This, combined with the fact that many of the parts (including the drivetrain) are brand new, means in many ways it feels like a new bike.
If you are looking for an aerodynamic, light and torsional stiff bike for fast sessions and/or competition, this is an excellent choice.
You can grab an extra pair of wheels (and brake pads) that you used primarily through the fall and spring to save on nicer wheels.
