My components finally came in to build up my new Roubaix Expert SL4! Replaced all the stock Shimano Ultegra parts with SRAM Force + Red levers and FD.

Took it for its inaugural ride today...SO SMOOTH. Love everything about it. Comes out to 17.4 lbs.

Had to Google it myself. Holy FACK those prices! What makes that jersey so good to make it worth that price?

Nice! There seems to be an explosion of H+ Archetypes on the board, lately. I have a pair myself, but haven't put them on yet, due to the weather.

... and all the bits for a Campaimano build. Campy levers, crank and FD, Tiagra GS in the rear shifting a 12-30t 10sp cassette. Velocity A23/105 wheelset wrapped in Clement CX 700x33c rubber. No road in North Texas is safe. :D

Yeah I bought into the hype from around the internet haha. Plus they were more affordable than HED Belgiums. I built them up myself (first time). They're 28h and 3x all around. I loved the way they rode when I was testing it on my previous bike as well. A little "heavy" at around 1850g but whatever, I built them to be durable (riding across country this summer) and comfortable! Thus the Roubaix as well.

Bummer on the weather. I do have a bunch of friends in the Twin Cities and see their pictures of the snow/ice all the time...I visited a month ago and I'll be back in the beginning of June! Loved MPLS in the summer when I visited last year.

The heavyweight winter jersey is awesome for all but approaching freezing temps. The rest...just okay in my experience, and I have a couple.

It's really great to see a small company trying to help others: "Mountain2Mountain" and "Strength in Numbers".

I went looking for the cheapest bike my LBS had so I could ride around with my kids and not use my road bike.. I ended up with this. After an hour riding around the park with my 8 year old I think I may want to get back into more OFF-road biking. :)
