One day a bunch of us were riding somewhere and there was a gate. I yelled out "somebody go back to town and get a ****load of dimes". Some of them remembered that line.

Sounds odd, but now that you have one it when you next remove the cables just be sure to attaché the new cable to the old one and thread it through....or attach a guide line as you pull the old one/for a placeholder.

what's this guide line you speak of? two hours later, i've threaded everything, but my back is killing me from all the bending, etc. i think i'm just gonna let the LBS do it the next time. Wayyyy too time consuming for what it's worth

Had that joy with my wife's new TT frame. Have to run the housing through the frame since there are no cable stops...

What frame? It takes me about two minutes on my internally routed frame. There's a removable cover under the BB to make life easier. And I bent a paperclip and cut it down to make a small hook to use to fish the cables out.

I always just hold the frame in reference to how the cable falls into it. Move the frame and let the cable dangle until the frame exit hole is lined up. Gravity doing it's thing.

not released yet.
*However* ;-)

It is an improved 500, with some nice bits. Multiple bikes do set up differently WRT power meters, different screen-setups for each bike, the homing/transmiting bit is nice even if it won't get used all that much.

I'd get one if I didn't already have a 500. Probably not worth the upgrade from a 500, but if you are in the market- this is the one.

Last week, the grocery store only had organic oranges. So I bought them. They were delicious.

This week, I went back to the big bag of giant oranges. They aren't so tasty.
