Well, here's the new race bike for 2006...
Empella Bonfire SL frame sz 60cm and Carbon fork (from cyclocrossworld.com)
Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset
Ritchey Speedmax Pro 700x30c tires
Spooky Carbon brakes
Ritchey WCS handlebar, stem, headset and seatpost
Crankbros Candy Ti
105 Der and Shifter
Selle San Marco Aspide (in World Champs/Empella colouring)
Truvativ Carbon Rouleur
Spooky Carbon Gaurds w/ FSA 42t ring
all weighing in at approx. 17.5lbs
Had it out for one ride and so far so good, but I definelty notice the difference in stopping power with the Spooky's compared to the Shimano Canti/Avid Shorty's. Basically the Spooky's work aswell as a U-brake on a kids bike and the Shimano/Avids worked like hydraulic disc brakes. Hopefully the brakes /pads will break in.
Let me know what you think.
