Jordan Rapp will start the 2015 race season aboard a Zipp and SRAM equipped Dimond race bike. It is finally together now with some interesting drivetrain components and here are first images.
The freshly built up Dimond basks in the sun with some heavy weaponry nearby.
The view from behind shows that there is not much to see, but what we see is stunning.
A 3/4 perspective from the front shows us that the theme of the bike is well thought out.
This shot gives us perspective where the images were taken.
Rappstar will race this season with only a singular prototype 54 tooth chainring on the 172.5mm Quarq Elsa power meter with a Ceramicspeed PF30 Coated bb.
The rear derailleur is a SRAM Force CX1 with Ceramicspeed CX1 Coated narrow-wide pulleys and an 11-30 cassette.
The view below the Zipp Vuka Stealth cockpit from the front and features a dummy FD shifter.
Rappstar hides a Garmin 500 behind the Zipp BTA setup, but it is integrated.
Jordan Rapp has been on Cobb saddles for a while now and he uses a XLab Gorilla XT cage on a custom mount.
This image was taken the night prior when the bike was finally together.
