There were several other people working on the bike in order to get the build finished in a single afternoon, including myself (in the photo) and a friend of mine.

And here it is - 2011 Scott Plasma 2 10 dubbed Plasmanck 2. A blend of modern and retro (with Spinergy Rev-X wheelset) but looking awesome none-the-less (sorry for misaligned wheels position!).

The initial reports are that it is fast, very fast. Exactly how much faster than the previous Plasma - remains to be seen.

Track-style rear wheel dropouts allow for perfect wheel positioning, but you need to make a pair of solid spacers in order to make sure the wheel will remain positioned correctly.

The only thing that bugs me about it is the inability to fit an aero bottle on the seat tube (as intended), so it had to be mounted on the down tube instead.

Having sold my PRO carbon disc wheel, mostly as it was too expensive to own for a single TT event a year and because the Vittoria Evo CX tubular was quite annoying with its inability to hold air, I got a cheaper disc wheel instead.

Funnily enough, it's also a PRO disc wheel with Dura Ace hub, just an older 3K carbon model with lenticular profile (in contrast to 12K carbon and flat profile of the newer model) along with a cheapo Schwalbe Lugano tubular on.

It is very slightly heavier and not quite as radially balanced as the "old" one, but it seems to be doing its job well enough. The bike is now fully set up for  the race day.

Contrary to the last few TT championship events, when we've had to endure heat wave with temperatures going over 40'C, this time round it was quite chilly at 23'C.

I say chilly, as the last few weeks of training were all done in 33-40'C temperatures, so I'd have actually preferred it slightly warmer.
