    Ha....thanks. I tried to tie it all together and it really came out nice (IMPO anyway). Yeah....the 3 spoke pattern is new for 2010. Supposed to balance tension better....but if a wheel is trued correctly it really shouldn't matter. But then again, I don't build wheels for a living. I just ride them for fun. I've been very happy with AC wheels. Running 26 Discs on my MTB with the same color scheme and haven't a single problem. Reasonable weight, reasonable price, great looks, great performance! Oh....and they are painted. Sounds stupid, but I find it is really funny you can drop $1200 on a set of wheels and they can't even take the time to paint the logos onto the rim. Don't get me wrong, I've got some great wheels with stickers, but come one, just paint them for crying out loud.

    In August, I will be biking up Mt. Washington. It'd be great if you could help me raise some money for the Tin Mountain Conservation Center! Thanks!

    Are you able to ride with no hands using that saddle? I'd imagine balancing the bike in any side to side motion or turning would be quite difficult.

    Kaneko.....that's a sweet ride.

    The switch to the Bastogne's is definately a noticeable difference in overall response.

    Thanks! I'd like to upgrade the wheelset sometime in the future. I need to save money and do my homework.

    I suppose that I can but rarely ever ride with no hands on the handle bar with this saddle or any others. I don't feel that I have experienced any problems turning corners but that's just my perception.

    I was very happy with the deal when compared to a new one. The seller said it had 900 miles on it and he is apparently a full time bike mechanic who cared for it himself. Other than the white handlebar tape being a little dirty and some wear on the saddle, the bike is in immaculate shape.

    One thing that I miss about the older (than 2010) models is the colored versions of the Toupe that Specialized has. (i.e., with the red or blue tips)
