Looks like Clinton has something special in the works.
My Condor Lavoro, currently sitting at 5.5 kilos
Is that brake lever position legal. Shouldn't it be at the widest point of the bar?
Strictly speaking it's illegal, but Pete Tadros and Rob Gough have been getting away with using a bar end shifter with cross tops for years.
not even SLR ..
He's supported by Trek, I'm sure it's the lightest frameset they have. He reckons it's gonna be 4.6kg
Its not, its SL not SLR ..
What's the weight difference? Could be a stiffness thing, power climb this year
quite a lot, SLR is used by the trek segafredo guys, SL is for n00bs (mine is SL). Tejvan has SLR.
mine from last year, barely made it sub 7kg, have improved on that but will wait for decent scales to verify. Frame is a big limiting factor.
See Jack Pullar's build a few posts up ;)
I knew nothing about hillclimb bikes but now want to build one.
Those wheels can't be helping much! i'd have thought most track frames could be gotten sub 6 with the right wheelset and fork.
What inch gear did you use for the Maldon Mr Bah?

Clintons 2008 national winning bike:
I like that. Very clean. What are the wheels?
I have a 41t chainring and a 26t sprocket form bob jackson fixie. I actually ride 48t:16 to a climb then flip the wheel and switch the chainring out.
In all honesty.
I do love doing the big local climbs fixed though. One day I may upgrade to some chinese carbon and get a smaller BCD chainset.
Thank! they are chinese carbon on cheap eBay hubs, built by SBC cycles. Identical to @umop3pisdns set.
Carl Heliwells 1993 Cannondale Track:
Close it down, it won't get better than that.
Maybe I need to go fixed next year...
Popped up on my fb feed by cycling weekly.
Hill climb summed up in one photo :)
What did Boardman ride that year?
