Specialized Diverge weight

Got my hands on a Specialized Diverge Pro 2016 frameset and with a new frameset it also hits the scale.

Size 54 including seatclamp, bottle cagebolts and derailleur hanger:

Fork was uncut. Cut to regular length for that frame it was 548g.

An awesome bike and I’m really curious on the new Diverge now. Will it be even better for 2017?

Le Peloton #101

We all need some connections and be together. Today it was my 101st Le Peloton and it was Elviras 1st:)

Vacationtimes but still over 60 riders today. Awesome to see so many up so early to go so fast. And today it was fast. Many strong riders and I had pretty good legs but only a 46T chainring in front. It worked much better than I thought and was good training for my cadence:)

Ended up with setting a PR on  the official loop with over a minute averaging 42,9km/h including to stops on the 34,6km loop😀

Then we rode through south Stockholm (pic by Johan):

And had a super breakfast in the sun, so worth the riding:

I’ve got in love with my Specialized S-Works Evade GC Skinsuit for these rides and as it’s all black it feels like I need to make it a bit funnier with funny socks. But in my favourite book (Sort kaffe & hvide sokker) the socks should be white. White thin and awesome Café du Cycliste socks to match my supernice Sub6 shoes today:

In perfect length:) That’s important.

Specialized 2017

It’s the time of the year where Specialized show and changes for 2017. An releasing the ultimate roadbike.

Venge Vias Disc:

Aero with disc, my dream. And of course with Thur axles to make it stable. Will be interesting to see it built up with the front wheel along the fork and frame, seems tight and nice:)

New colours for the Tarmac:

It didn’t got thru axles so the Tarmac Disc frame seems unchanged:

With rimbrakes with both Shimano’s new Dura-Ace 9100 and Sram Red Etap:

S-works 6 and Sub6 shoes gets some new colours, like fluo:

The Worlds and the Specializeds

World XCO Championships in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic this week. Ida Jansson, Sweden won the women juniors race yesterday and today it was the Special day.

First men U23 where Samuel Gaze rode his Specialized Epic so fast so Victor Koretzky couldn’t keep up with his BH.

Then Women Elite and it looked a bit as the 2 earlier World Cups this year. Some who tries to put the tempo high in the beginning and then Annika Langvad decides it is too slow. She won the last World Cup last year, she won the 2 first this year and she is the new World Champion!!!

So right she won. Hoped she would because Danes got cool style and she got the class. Annika Langvad and Julien Absalon is what I think the role models of XCOracing.

  1. Annika Langvad – Denmark
  2. Lea Davison – USA
  3. Emily Batty – Canada

Le Peloton #100!

A friend wrote I’ve been living in Stockholm for 592 days today. 100 of them I’ve ridden Le Peloton and that’s more than once upon a week.

Not so many today as it was raining a couple less than an hour before and it’s summertime. I had really tired legs since yesterday so rode with group 3 even thou I said in the interview with SUMO that I prefer Group 1😉 Where 15 riders with 4 girls and it all went good if you ask me. Average of 34,5km/h so okey.

Then it seemed like everyone disappeared as it was very few who came to Le Mond for breakfast. Doesn’t people understand the hole purpose with Le Peloton?
