More Baby Photos

I'm a LITESPEED fan (and Specialized, and Look, and Cervelo, and....), 10 years ago I bought a Litespeed Tuscany, it is still one of the nicest bikes I ride, still looks new. Over the winter the new LITESPEED twins arrived, the C1r and the L1r, separated by a week. Not identical twins, the C1r came in at a healthy 15 lbs 10 ounces, the L1r came in at 14 lbs 10 ounces. Both are built up with lots of Zipp, the C1r has Di2, an integrated seat post, the L1r has SRAM red black and a few other lightweight bits, it also has the new spec BB386 and massive bottom bracket area.

Both are size large, 57 effective top tube. Holy tall head tubes! both are slammed and the L1r needed a minus 17 stem to make it look pro.
The perfect combination for Penticton. Although I built them up myself, both needed to go to Cam and Doug for a little salvation, this is not a substitute for a bearing press!

Hope to see you on the road soon!
