... might want to bookmark this one for future reference...

http://www.ovalconcepts.com/

While the site (and products) are yet to be finalized, press about said products is trickling in to cycling magazines (VeloNews, Cycle Sport and Pro Cycling)... one of the folks involved is Bicycle Sport's John Cobb (the boys who've helped (along with others) Lance tweak his aero properties for last few years).

Their opening radical volley seems to focus on a new aero carbon fiber fork... with holes (actually slots) through the blades which is reported to clean up air flow around the wheel and frame. Interstingly enuff... there was an article in the old "Bicycle Guide/Bicyclist" magazine about a custom built steel fork with venturis built in... originally built to save a few grams, but having decent aero properties as well. Does anyone remember the builder?

We abide.

Remain In Light.

Be the bike.

It looks interesting. There's been heated discussion on the Slowtwitch forum about it and the Oval aerobars that look like the ones HED was trying to introduce.

Also, FWIW, Gerard from Cervelo has posted that there's a new fork coming for the P2K and P3.
