    Underwent a little Di2 Transformation. 4 rides so far since friday and im loving the new drivetrain! Next up 2 days of racing!

    Oh the usual...some carbon fiber, some deep wheels, some electronic shifting, and not enough money.

    Got my first road bike almost a year ago on Memorial Day weekend. A Cannondale Women's Synapse Carbon 5 105
    Cannondale_Synapse5105CarbonLadies.jpg It's a beautiful first ride

    I also recently got a Scott Contessa Speedster 35 which I am going to be riding across the US this summer, from Baltimore to Portland. Heavier with an aluminum frame and carbon fork, and lower-end components. Just hoping it'll be more durable for the 4,400 mile ride.

    Too lazy to take pics. I am in bed and the bikes are downstairs in the living room and garage.

    I love Bianchis in Celeste. In Europe (and specially in Italia) riders go for style in their bikes (as well as performance) so colors like Celeste are extremely popular. I guess they don't have the hang ups that some riders here have.

    A historical note. Mussolini tried to change the color of the winner's jersey in the Giro d'Italia because he thought that the rosa maglia was too girlish for the winner of such a difficult race. To this day winning the rosa maglia is considered one of cycling's most difficult achievements.

    And what about Il Duce? Once defeat became imminent, he tried to escape but was eventually captured. He was then executed and hung upside down, like a big, fat piece of prosciutto.

    So much for his stupid machismo.
    They replaced it with a new celest frame. : )
    Mussolini was probably insecure about his manlihood.

    I'm jealous of our assortment! It looks like both of your bikes match roughly in color as well, must make for easier outfit choicing. : )

    Your new bike looks great in Celeste.

    Haha yes. All my kit is pretty much color coordinated, though it wasn't entirely intentional.

    Beautiful bike, great value. Get a really good lock, it's very eye catching, super flashy bike. Perfect bike to steal, be easy to resell it.

    Celeste is definitely the best color for the Bianchi's. I'm assuming that's the new CV frame?

    I bought this 2013 Trek Crossrip Disc for the gravel but it has not seen any as of yet , it just rides to good on the pavement, I do my weekend loop rides on it , I always like how the Paris Roubaix bikes are built up so I took a page out of the pro's book with 700x28 Vittoria Rubino Pros, double wrap bartape,Selle Flite saddle, Tacx cages and extra brake levers on the top of the Bontrager bars, now if I could just find some cobbles

    Wow, this giant is very nice. What wheels and tires you have on it?

    The wheels are Fuzion M1's. I have 2 sets of Fuzion F1's also, but the M1's had a few extra spokes and handle weight a bit better. The wheels are OK but not the greatest in the world. Considering I paid like $175 for them (They are closer to $500 wheels) I think they were one hell of a deal. I switch tires depending on my touring locations but Typically I keep the Bontrager Race Lite Hardcase (All Weather) 700x28 tires on there. If I am expecting more gravel, mud or just looser terrain, I use my Specialized Infinity Pro 700x32 tires.

    I have TRP Euro-X Cantilever brakes to allow for full with tires if I need. (Like 700x42 or something) I have never ridden this frame on anything wider than 700x32 however.

    BTW: Fuzion M1's are 27mm Kinlin rims on DBA Climb hubs and 24/28 spokes I believe. The wheels weigh in around 1800 grams I believe. but they are nice and strong for being under 2k grams.

    Have you tried running lower PSI and 25mm tires? Will be a lot cheaper than buying new wheels. And at least with the Z85s I've seen, they use good wheels, Mavic CPX22.

    Unfortunately I haven't. Reason is that I am pretty new and don't know much. I would like to use this bike for commuting but after I bent the wheel I am little disappointed. For now I have a rear wheel that is bent completely because I hit one hole really bad. I took it to mechanic and he said that it can not be true anymore.
    I would like to give it another chance. But now I am not quite sure about the correct steps I need to take.
    For now I have some ideas:

    I found a guy on Craigslist that is selling good used rear wheel (he said he put 200 miles) it's Alexrims with 32 spokes but more heavier and rigid then Mavic CPX22. It's $60 bucks investment. It's relatively cheap to give this a try... But in general if this doesn't work I honestly don't know what to do. I would like to continue commuting but maybe I need to change a lot...

    Thanks for reading

    I ride Shimano RS11, it's cheap for both wheels from MerlinCycles. It arrived in 5 days from the UK. The roads around here are really rough and wheels are still as true as when then arrived new. That's a cheap option for you.
