    Howdy

    52 year old in Utah, its cold, foggy-and like all of you, my friends say Im nuts to ride at night in the pea soup. I commute 28 miles round trip almost every day so I am an organ donar. I am starting to build an new road bike. Look 555 frame, New DuraAce Triple 10 groupo (I like triple in our canyons), Easton EC90 seat post and bars and my wife thinks this will be just under $1000.00. I am the master of my house.

    Howdy,
    Welcome, I rode out to the Great Salt Lake at lunch time yesterday, vis was about 100 feet but in places it was almost zero.

    Dura Ace Triple 10 Speed? When did this start to exist? Shimano says not yet. Am I missing something?

    The Dura Ace Triple Ten will be out this spring

    My bike shop confirmed it with Shimono.
    My dilemma is what to do with my currant bike. She has been a wonderful ride and she is sleek and a great old friend. Since I live in Utah I should just consider myself a bike polygamist and keep both the new and the old in my stable. As I surf looking at things for the new Look 555 my sweet little Aluminum Allez stares over my shoulder wondering why I want a sportier new ride.
    What is a man to do.

    I think bikes are happier when they have company.
