Joe Gambles Quintana Roo PRsix Disc Triathlon Bike


– Morning Joe.
– Hi Frase, how you doing? – Ready to do the pro bike feature? – Perfect, that’s great. Glad you’re here ’cause, my bike actually it got a little bit dirty yesterday so, it might need a little bit of a clean before you talk about it ’cause you can’t actually tell
what bike it is actually. So, if you could give it a bit of a touch-up that’d be great. – Really?
– Yeah, sorry. Hey Fraser, you’ve missed a little bit. Just make sure you get
that bottom bracket. (spraying) – Now we are here with professional Australian long course
athlete, Joe Gambles’ race day bike the day
after he has raced on it. Now Joe has one so many Ironman 70.3s I can’t remember what the number is. He’s also been on the
podium at Ironman 70.3 world championships and
he has won an Ironman and this is his Quintana Roo PR6. (upbeat music) So, we’ll get started with the frameset on Joe’s Quintana Roo
and before I talk about the rather interesting and cool features that this frameset has, first
up I’ll talk about frame size. It’s a small that Joe rides. But secondly and more importantly then the frameset we got
to talk about paintwork and the simplicity of
this frame is what I like. The matte black is, I
think, a really nice finish. But what really makes it pop and standout are those luminous yellow decals. Really like that and I think you can see it really, really easily on race day. So that’s cool. But let’s get to those
interesting features. Now integration is key in so many time trial bikes these
days and we see it clear and simple on this Quintana Roo. We’ve got a storage box
that keeps everything nice and aero, in behind the saddle. And a really cool feature
on Quintana’s bike is, if you can look closely, they’ve added a little light to the back corner which just adds a safety aspect to all of your rides without you even having to think about it. So that’s really cool and I haven’t seen that on any other bikes. And then coming to the front of the frame we can see this integrated
Bento type box that athletes can store
well, whatever they want. Joe has his DI2 junction box in here and because we’re the day after race day, I can still find some CO2 canisters and canister adaptor in there. So in front of that Bento storage box, we’re moving into the
cockpit in Joe’s bike. And we can see that integrated stem there that holds the base bar in place. The base bar on Joe’s bike
is a Profile Design base bar. And then moving up and to the aero bars we’ve got, like a lot of
pro athletes these days, 51 Speedshop extensions,
a really interesting ski bend that Joe is running. And then, the 51 Speedshop arm cups are fairly standard on a
lot of bikes these days. We’re seeing that again
here on Joe’s bike. Even got some 51 Speedshop
bar tape on the bike. And then moving in between those are cups Joe is running quite an interesting aero design system to hold both his computer in place and it holds his water bottle for aero drink system. Whether he’s using a regular bottle or one of the ones we see
that you can refill on the go. I’m not sure what Joe has used. And this is an XLAB system that we can just Velcro between the aero bars. And to finish off Joe’s cockpit, we need to talk about
his gearing and brakes. He’s got his DI2 Blips up here on the end of his Speedshop bars and he’s running the Dura Ace brake levers here which he can use synchro
shift shifting on. So, in the front of Joe’s drivetrain he’s got 55, 39 tooth chain rings attached to 165 millimeter cranks and Shimano Dura Ace
pedals on the end of those. Now moving through to
the back of the groupset, holding that together we’ve
got the chain obviously and Joe has been running a
CeramicSpeed coated chain. But because I had to clean the bike you can’t see any of that coating left on Joe’s chain, but on
the note of CeramicSpeed, they’re also some ceramic bearings in here in his jockey wheels
for his dual race derailleur. And finally on the groupset, Joe’s 11 speed dual race block is 11, 28. Now then let’s take a
look at Joe’s wheelset and I think these Zipp wheels really add to the stealthiness
that Joe’s race setup has. I love that black look. The front is a Zipp 858. The rear is a Zipp
Super-9 Clincher wheelset. And leasing those rims, Joe has Conti GP 5000s with 23 ml on the front and 25 ml on the rear. So to stop those Zipp rims, Joe as got the Shimano Dura Ace 9100 disc brakes and the calipers that Joe has are the 140 ml radius calipers and I just think that this bike lends itself really
well toward this setup. I love this look a lot. Finishing up this frameset,
we’ve got the saddle here which is the ISM PN 3.0. Well I am certainly extremely glad we managed to get all that dirt cleaned away on Joe’s bike because, underneath there was an absolute beauty of a Quintana Roo for us to see. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this video. Please hit that thumb up like
