I need to upgrade my bike, I was thinking about getting one with wheels that are the same size, perhaps filled with air.

This is my current machine, can anyone help with some real JEMS of wisdom I've seen on this site previously.

Actually, bicycle tech has almost gone full cirle with the bigger wheels being the latest thing, check your latest issue of "Mens Health" for everything you need to know about 29'ers and other types of penis enlargement.

 

Marketing departments are already experimenting with '36ers and after that they will want to build the biggest wheel possible - physics will then dicate that the back wheel be smaller.

 

In other words, stick with current bike, as it will be the latest thing about 10 year from now.

As for the kit, that's all the rage in Kazakhstan at the moment, Disregard the background , I was peddling past an art gallery and that painting was in the front window.

Don't you guys find it amusing that when you actually want advise on this site, you get a whole lot of clowns answering your post. But post something ridiculous and the clowns shut up.... what's up with that??

The mistake was in saying 'stupid comments allowed'. If you'd put 'serious comments only please' the clowns would be in abundance.

Looks future-proof as already noted by JKP. For time trials however you may want to try a more aerodynamic setup.

 

Move the saddle closer to the top of the wheel for more direct power transfer, fit a disc on the back and at least a 2160mm deep section on the front. The fork needs more of an aggressive angle and you can rotate those bars forward too for a more superman style position.

 

For maximum aero advantage you will definitely need a custom TT helmet, the tail of which must extend all the way down to the top of the rear wheel.

 

With these modifications on board you will be unstoppable in the race of truth. The competition will weep tears of jealousy when they witness you warming up in your leather skinsuit and flying goggles.

Oh. I was going to say that you should just upgrade the background. That one looked a bit mid 30's.

Everything else is fine.

Fashion comes round again all the time.
