    Custom-painted Team Bearclaw Edition rocket bike. Comes in at slightly above 15lbs. I raced this beast this last weekend and found it's a very solid bike, I'm in love.

    And yes, I know I need to cut the steerer tube :p




    and an action shot from beautiful Socal :disgust:

    Thanks! I switched teams early December. More can be found here at http://www.teambearclaw.com My old team is still on Cdale


    I believe we're working with one of the local sales reps.

    Right on. The Coles are great wheels. I was working with those guys about 2 years ago to launch the wheels through Veltec, but it didn't work out. I've got a bunch of them though, lots of miles on them, big fan.

    Based on the 2 races I've done on them, I'd say I'm a big fan as well. Accelerate great, and they don't have the pad rub/slap when laid down in a corner.

    They brake better than just about any other carbon wheelset I've ridden too.
    SwissStop pads are a must, they're a big upgrade from the pads that come with it.
    Do you guys have a tire sponsor?

    Edit: Duh, it's quite obvious that you are running SwissStops...nice choice.

    Thanks for the offer! I'm not sure if there's some sort of pro-deal through Tufo going on, but I'll find out and get back to ya.

    Thanks. It's getting some Reynolds wheels, so it should be sub-15.
