    it's the angle at which you're seeing the shift ramps on each cog
    believe me, there is *nothing* wrong with that cassette

    Thanks, and sure, here you go. I'd like to do some upgrades to the bike (swap to Campy, 3T stem, Edge 2.0 fork) but it will probably be a couple of years. Other than that, the Speedplays and wheels have switched in favor of Keos and DA 7801SL (the carbon rims are now on the Campy bike).

    Hey thanks! Spent a lot of time working on getting the "right" parts for it and, with the help of a friend, built it in an afternoon. People can have their Ti and all Carbon... I'm a fan of steel and classic geometry.
    I'd build another Casati in a heartbeat (a fleet of them actually) - it rides like a stallion and has more "go" than I do. At the end of my first all-out go on it I swear the Cas was staring at me with a look of "is that all you got?"
    Only problem with Casati is the considerable lack of extra branded schwag. I'd love a Casati jersey (that wasn't in tiny Euro sizes).

    The chain is in the small chainring because the FD cable wasn't attached when that picture was taken. The wheel decals are custom if anybody was wondering.

    Yeah it's the V-flow plus. I like it except that I would probably prefer if it had a flat top. That curve makes it sort of uncomfortable on the boys when the saddle is positioned level. I have to angle it down a little for the front half to be level.

    They're coming out with a better saddle this July though. A little lighter, but with more curve. Apparently you're supposed to ride farther back on it than you would a normal saddle in the aero position. I may as well try the new one out. It's been less than 6mo since I bought this one so I can apply its purchase price toward that of the new saddle. Pretty good company policy in my opinion

    Really? Cause I think it's one of the ugliest bikes I have ever seen (looks-wise). I'm sure it is AMAZING to ride and extremely light, but as far as looks go I think it's an eyesore. The saddle is interesting though, I will have to check that brand out.

    I have a Raleigh Technium 440. Aluminum and steel. From the 80's. Electric blue. It's (usually) fun to ride. I like it well enough for now.

    Of course, I dream of one day even being able to afford any of these bikes you guys have.

    Re-entry version 4.0...

    Just got this Specialized Roubaix Compact. Back in to riding after a few years off. As the title says, about my 4th 're-entry'. Hope to stay on the bike & improving my fitness this time.

    1st ride was a flatland 30 mile. Planning on getting out today for a bit shorter, but faster ride.

    From my understanding, the Synapse is not geared toward racing (the Cannondale site calls it a performance bike as opposed to Elite Road), but more for comfort. Although, the guy at the bike store didn't explain it well. I went with the bike that felt better. I'm not fast, so hopefully this one will be fine for the century I want to do eventually. Anyway, I don't know if that has any difference with the top tube. Although, the Cannondale Six also has a sloping tube. The CAAD 9 is still straight.
