So if i picked up a set of 05 SLs with a dura ace 10 speed cassette for $300....?

jock 07-12-06 05:26 AM

So nostrodamus, what's gonna happen tonite? Kloden? Rassmussen? Evans?

Don't think this stage suits the true climbers, more someone like vinny.... or .... EKIMOV

nostrildamus predicts a medium sized group will take time from the main bunch, expect to see cadel, kloden, hincapie, popo, landis etc all up there....
Landis to lose time when the action heats up.
Kloden to be strong but wilt in the last ITT.

your thoughts?

Mine are the 03 SSC's as well. But with Campy. Checked out the latest SSL's with the red bling spoke the other day. Look pretty nice but for the same cash you could get some pretty sweet hand built puppies as thylo was saying....

Oh yeah...good get, pshaw - that's a killer Scottish deal :D

Thylacine 07-12-06 06:46 AM

Hitchy, Soul-Kozak hubs with IRD Cadence rims and DT Supercomp spokes weigh in at about 1300g depending on how they're laced. I'd happily crash a set into you, if that's any indication :D

I can get Zipp404's for 2k Aussie if I can freight consolidate them. (ie: Ship them from overseas with other heavier stuff.)

I have to admit, if I could get them, I'd also be pimping Rolf Prima wheels. They are the kings of the prebuilt wheel world. Why they don't kill the Ksyrium farce is a complete mystery to me.

Hitchy 07-12-06 06:53 AM

looks like Mayo will be coming home in the 'autobus' with the sprinters....what is it with Spanish climbers?, they promise so much, but rarely deliver (heras & the odd Vuelta accepted)

Wilchemy 07-12-06 07:02 AM

Maybe he hasn't been able to see his doctor...

My brother had some Rolfs a few years back & had no end of dramas with them. Weren't Primas tho...I think they were vectors or summit like that. Ended up trading them for some hand built Mavic rim/chorus hub jobs.

Sounds like Rolf might have got better since then.

Hitchy 07-12-06 07:17 AM

Honchar' s going of the back too...Looked like he was pushing something like 39/25....& it gets steeper the last couple o' k's before the summit.

jock 07-12-06 04:09 PM

It's not there marty. You mean we get to vote on it this time? :)

Go part 5 I say.

I finally got the nod from the insurance company - YAY! Market value on my old bike (2002 aluminium GT with ultegra) is $1800, plus new lid and tights, I'm going to collect just under $2100. That leaves me about $500 short on the new bike and stack hat, but that's OK as I picked up a near new full carbon and ultegra bike that retails for $5000 for $2500.

Good work on the tool recovery bbw, and nice effort with the rewards.
