    Hey

    Hey everybody,
    My name is Chris and I'm new to the forum but not to cycling. I recently unhung my bike from the garage wall after a 5 year hiatus. Before then I used to ride mountain bikes, road bikes, wrenched in a couple of shops around town and even organized a few races back in the 01-02 time frame.
    My current ride is a 2000 Derosa Merak with an Ultegra/7500 Dura ace groupset, Rolf vector pro wheelset, Time fork, Easton stem(replaced after the Dead magic stripped out), Deda bars, thompson seatpost, and Lola seat. All told it weighs in at 19 lbs for a 59cm frame.
    Because the parts available today are much lighter than the selection available 9 years ago I am in the process of upgrading my bike hoping to shed some of the fat. I'm not a small guy (6'2"/230 pounds) so I really need to find a good balance between weight and durability, but here's what I have on the list so far:
    Look HSC4 Fork& Cane Creek Is-8i headset (purchased)
    Zipp 145 stem and Zipp Contour Bar(purchased)
    American Classic Alpha seatpost
    Considering an FSA K force Light Mega EXO Compact crankset and new BB
    And am currently trying to decide between a set of reynolds DV3KT, Easton EC90 Aero, or Cane Creek AROS 50 tubular wheelsets.
    I would love to hear any suggestions you guys have.
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Welcome to Bike Forums, Chris. Try posting your questions in the Clydesdale/Athena forum. The guys in there should be able to help you.
