fall is the best time of year.



in case you were wondering, the 36 spoke nashbar special wheelset is every bit as heavy as it looks.

Take some getting used to , they really engage your hamstrings and glutes. Haven't done a huge amount of miles on them but once adjusted to them they seem to work.
It's a 54/44 ring setup. I spent last year on a 54/42 and do like the 44, the 54 is just 'different'...

caad10, ultegra di2 (custom drilled wiring and hacked sprint shifters on right drop), Cdale Si / srm cranks, early-gen 404's w Dura Ace hubs, conti sprinter tub on the back, vittoria something or other on the front, that I've since replaced as the tread was delaminating from the casing.

gets the job done.

Sweet! Now you need to see if you can get them to give you an International for a back-up.

It looks more extreme without context. In the real world, I would take more. Saddle is a few mm up and bar is now on the cap but I still could go down 2cm. My arms are too long and I get lazy sit up instead of keeping elbows bent.
