Couldn't stand it. When I built the bike I said to myself...it is just for training you don't need dura ace. I built it with ultegra instead. After spending a week around all the bikes at the Ironman here in florida, I just couldn't resist. Found a sweet deal on some cranks, brakes, shifters and BB. I know the performance won't be increased or weight drastically reduced, but the sweet tooth for bike candy has been fufilled. Now I just need the deraileurs for an all dura ace bike. Maybe if I don't get those I will feel like I stuck to my origional plan. Yeah right! Like that will happen. I am so pathetic.

... that's why I added a pair of ZIPP cranks with a Dura Ace buzzsaw ring to my otherwise Ultegra TT bike. I didn't loose a pound of weight off the bike... didn't increase stiffness beyond a measurable scale... but it looks sooo damn'd bitchin'...

I recently acquirred a set of Dura Ace brakes along with front and rear derailleurs and BB that will go on a future project.

I guess this makes me a pathetic bike junkie...

We abide.

Remain In Light.
