in relevation the up rising prices of gas and the " inflation or recession " bout... i do find triathlon is still an expensive sport. This link ( above ) hits the sweet spot...on what i have rendered in thought long long time ago....
Stumble upon this, shows the education of this minister , home grown local minister saying this as an encouragement. Cycling commuting is a child's play...sigh.. why am i living in a 3rd world country....with chosen minister like these...
Damm, i just got myself a set of tubulars,should have went with this instead..

Interesting enough on the rubber density compound tire on inner and higher on the outer.
Initially thought that the lower compound will be on the outer instead the inner.
Perhaps due to the cornering load where the high durometer will shine.
The production of 1 kg (2.2 lbs.) of steel, for instance, generates 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs.) of CO2, while the production of 1 kg of carbon fiber yields nearly 30 kg (66.1 lbs.) of CO2, Reinert says in a presentation at the Automotive News World Congress.
thats way too much to create a frame and a fork.... isnt it....
Now putting it together wasn't as easy as pure pedigree grouppo. This combination require some of the "touch" as both component and its cabling is very much different. Tried for several hours to get it fine tune but the pull isn't the same as for the bottom high 5 to the top low 5 , the increased tension to further tighten the top 5 shifts well but not the other lower 5 ring and vice versa. And usually this is what happens with shimano and campy combi. In a gauge estimate , the top 5 requires more pull thus i had a lil idea to solve it. Finally ending this tuning at 2 am after 4 hours , i had to throw in the towel.
The next day , only way to know if it works is to shift it under pressure, using the Tuesday's nite climb route i expect miss shift or missed down shift but none happened and i am seriously pretty happy it works. Its nice to know after all the frustration , wait , grease and sweat and tired fingers.They preformed flawlessly.
