i RIDE TE DELTA 7. I race professionally and love every second on the bike. I have wrecked on the bike and did not have a cheese grater wound NONE. Water has not ever been an issue on the BB. IT is fucking stiff and has a ride better then sex. The SRAM RED is amazing and works without a problem. GET a Delta7 Ascend you will be very happy. The Podium is a nice place to hang out and collect a pay check when riding a Delta 7. Want to know more ask me atriracer@ aaaooolll.cooomm
I demoed the bike for several days. The isostructure is smooth - no cheese grater. According to the company, they put it in a windtunnel and it actually has less drag that a standard bike (golf ball dimple principle?). The bike is very stiff and efficient. It took two minutes off a steep, 50 minute climb I do regularly. I also demoed the Cervelo R3. The Cervelo WAS slower coming down hill due to the large tubing (I had trouble catching my brother while coasting on the Cervelo, even though I outweight him by 30lbs using my personal wheels on all the bikes). I ended up buying the Delta 7 last week! Don't knock it till you try it, and don't try it unless you have the $$$ to buy, because you'll be depressed when you can't keep it.
