    Open pro/Dura Ace/DT Spokes/Zipp 404/PowerTap/Tubular/Clincher/Record/Mike Garcia wheels are the only way to go.

    I've read many a post in the road forum that espouses the quality of sora and tiagra components. Check your LBS, find every bike that is equipped with said components, and then empty your wallet - you CAN'T go wrong
    Ciao,

    For too long have we sat under the thumb of mankind.
    Now is the time to OPPOSE that thumb!

    you forgot:

    internal 3 speed hub w/
    electricity generator for your head light
    high flanges
    ceramic bearings
    coaster brake
    dimples.

    rim must not be machined for brakes,
    use veloplugs instead of rim tape,
    tubular and clincher compatible
    all stickers removed and replaced with those cool holographic stickers
    velocity's eggplant color
    dimples.

    duh.

    Record vs. Dura Ace
    double vs. triple
    carbon vs. hydrochloric acid
    Rosie vs. The Donald

    So the post that consisted of a BF member saying "**** you doc" is against the rules?
    "Unless he was racing there was no way he could match my speed."

    For the record, Rosie would get dropped by The Donald, but the world would be better off if they fell into a vat of HCl.
