a damocles? I haven't seen hardly any of those around... seems like the ridley sponsored teams around here are riding a lot more Noah/Excalibur/Heliums...

What were the factors in your deciding to get a Damocles? Anything that it does better than the others?

P.S. your bike is "extra hot".

Factor was mainly price. The Noah is about 1K more for the frameset. I always wanted a Ridley because I love the look and not many people have them (at least where I ride).

no dedicated race wheelset yet, but it's going to happen soon. I like the Williams 58's with the Powertap option.

Where I am (Socal), I know of only one other person who rides a Damocles. It'll probably be replaced by a Cannondale soon.

As far as I can tell only the team version seems to have the .com anyway, the other frames just have CANYON.
