    I just switched to the same tires. How do you like them?

    Ooof, I think they overdid it w/ those graphics. To the owner, why would you put Lugano tires on that bike? They're rocks and have awful rolling resistance. You could do so much better with the schwalbe durano, which is a much better balance of flat/cut resistance and weight savings.

    Here's my early 90's Davidson Impulse I just rebuilt. I've owned it since 1998.

    I will take that tire advice... I use to have this wheels on my TCR Advanced so haven't change the tire.. but I will look for new ones.

    Much better looking Synapse frame and more comfortable than the current ones. I want to find a nice used 2011 one.

    Good to hear

    I only tried 2 other roadbikes before getting this, a Ridley Orion 20 (Shimano 105), and a Felt AR4 2013 (Ultegra 6700).

    Dont think I could say how each felt different though.

    But comments like that sure doesnt make me regret getting it

    No Pic now, but it's a 2014 Cannondale CAAD 10 5.

    Does anyone know if i can switch (install) Disc Brakes or do I need a new frame for that?


    Thank You!

    Just wanted to let you know that some criminals broke my VAN in front of my office in the middle of the day after I came from the lunch ride and stole my FELT Z85.

    I would never believe that somebody will broke the car with tinted windows in very busy part of the city to steal bike... Lesson for everybody : Don't leave your bike locked in your car that can be visible to criminals. It took them literally few moments to break the glass open the door and steal it...

    Now I got a new bike MASI PC1 (Carbon frame and Sora components) but I can not beat any of my PR's made with FELT.

    It's an awful feeling when a bike, or anything else really, gets stolen. A rage without satisfaction and a violation of personal space.
    Sorry MM80, I hope the Masi works out ok for you.
    Uhmm...

    No complaints so far. Much better than the stockers.

    This is my Viking Jetstream.. I'm a beginner cyclist as you can see.. I've done some upgrades on it... (changed the crankset to a stronger lighter miranda one & plastic/carbon bottle cages) some changes arn't in the photo but i also have Clipless pedals, taken off wheel reflectors, fitted new brake/gear shifters, taken off the front and back reflectors, fitted new brake pads... Looking to upgrade my bike bit by bit and eventually get a new frame or whole new bike!
    Thanks,
    Rhys

    And Im in the process of acquiring some more kits, ofcourse branded and colored to match. Would never have thought Id ever buy clothes with green on em, but thats the hand (color) I've been dealt

    UPDATE: I've had the Roubaix for 6 weeks now and have put 480 miles on it. I love this bike!
    However, comparing the Allez to the Roubaix:
    Allez: Triple 32/42/52 12-27 9spd Tiagra group w/105 rear derailleur A1 Aluminum w/Fact carbon fork Mavic 28/24 wheels Panaracer 23C tires underseat bag w/flat kit w/CO2, coiled cable lock, cell phone approx 22lbs.
    Roubaix: Double 34/50 11-28 10spd Ultegra group 10R Carbon Fiber Fulcrum 24/20 wheels Pro II 23/25C tires underseat bag same goodies approx 19lbs.

    Allez in mid chain ring (42T) and 5th (15T) Roubaix 50T and 3rd (21T) they are very similar in the effort it takes to push the bike(s), altho the Allez gets easier quicker.
    Allez in big chain ring (52T) and 5th (15T) Roubaix 50T and 5th (17T) the Allez is easier and faster to get up to 15-18mpg. It shouldn't be, something is amiss. I'm wondering if there's drag in the crank from the Roubaix having sat in a garage for 2 years. Could the bearing grease stiffen up enough to cause that? It had less than 100 miles on it (total) when I got it.

    2014 Cannondale Synapse 6:
    20140710_201846_resized.jpg

    2013 Trek Domane 6.2 Project 1 bike:
    20140729_095425_resized.jpg

    I picked up the Cannondale in early July 2014. Loved the comfort of this bike.
    I was talked into buying the Trek from the LBS about 3 weeks later (from my brother). The Trek was a clearance bike and I did get a very good deal on it, but I'm kind or regretting the decision now. I'm not sure that it was worth the extra money for the Trek vs the Cannondale. Both bikes are outstanding in the comfort department. The LBS changed out the 23mm tires on the Trek for tubeless ready 25mm R3's. Add on another $200.00 in "free" accessories and I was happy with the purchase.
    I currently have the Cannondale for sale on a local Craigslist pages, but I'm not so sure, I'd rather sell the Trek instead.
    I know I sound odd by bouncing back and forth like this (and I would say the same thing if I were reading this too). It is just one of those things I guess....
    I was coming from a 1990 model Schwinn Traveler (Made in Chicago, IL), and a 2011 Trek 7500 FX bike.
    Anyway, how about that for a 1st post?
