Regarding riding often...

On the spec I was sent over from PX I have just requested the 60mm carbon clinchers rather than the 100/82mm tubs... just because I will be riding on those most of the time as well as I don't really want to have £400 worth of wheel that are used 4 times per year in racing!!

If I was racing more often (i.e. if I had a car to be able to get to races) then I would think about going for the deeper tubs and getting some cheaper wheels to train on but it's probably not worth it for now

Ok I have a road bike already, so have decided to go for TT bike now is the Stealth the best out there for £1600 or is there better/same for less?? Or the same price?

If you get the Stealth with Rival and 30mm wheels its about £500 cheaper....

EDIT: GB - any news on those wheels. Bike Science in Brizzle are out, and I really want a pair.

I asked to change from the tubs to the clinchers and they said that was fine, but that was the 52mm... will check when i put the order in tonight that 60mm are ok, so I am assuming they have them in stock. That's coming from the showroom at Rotherham

hmmm.... I wasn't going to pick it up until the 5th march anyway... perhaps I could wait a few more weeks... I was going to be near the showroom on the 30th/31st march anyway!

Or see about getting the bike now and the wheels delivered when they come in stock... at least that way I would have the bike to start training on at the weekends!
