The Cucuma of Julia Gajer

Written by: Herbert Krabel
Added: Wed Jul 17 2013

Julia Gajer is relatively new to long course racing, but that distance has found her well, with 3 podium finishes in Roth in as many starts. Albeit, one of those came with her maiden name. Today we look closer at her Cucuma Veloz Pro race bike from the 2013 DATEV Challenge Roth.

We snagged Julia Gajer's Cucuma before she racked it.

An ISM Adamo Racing saddle with zip tied rails, on top of a modified post.

The Veloz Pro has a 76 degree seat angle and Gajer clearly needed a steeper setup. Do what you must do.

A Profile Design Volna cockpit in white with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 shifting and an Aero HC bottle.

The repair kit is hidden in a small bento box behind the stem.

A Rotor powermeter with Rotor nonQ rings.

Profile Stryke cages in white with a space for a small pump.

Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 rear and front derailleurs.

A Profile Design 78 Twenty Four wheel in the back.

The slightly shallower Profile Design 58 Twenty Four up front.

Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tires also come stock on the customer Cucuma Veloz Pro bikes.
