    Do the 7800 brakes only come in silver?

    Bought a cannondale evo conical spacer. Looks much better than the bubble spacer that comes on the supersix (non evo).

    Yeah I debated waiting for the new models, the black/neons look pretty cool, in the end I decided I didn't want to pay full retail. I prefer the black better than the silver/lime though, too flashy for me. I may try putting some colored laces on these to make 'em look a little sportier and less like dress shoes.

    Ooooh-you got the limited editions! Major shoe envy esp. the blue ones Giro really needs to ramp up their offerings of ltd editions of the Empire-they could really go nuts with some outlandish color ways!

    No, actually I prefer them. They're made of a special fabric that tightens nicely. There's a stretchy loop on the tongue to put the laces through so they don't flop around. I'm not someone that retightens their shoe mid ride so the laces work and to be honest, they stay tight the entire ride.

    I have the blue shimano R320's as well but still prefer the Empires - I reach for those the most.

    The camo mtb ones walk very well as well...I've done tons of hiking in them since I suck on the mtb.

    I agree, I liked their facebook page since they do first friday 50's every month of all limited edition stuff. Every now and then they have really nice stuff but its pricey. I did pick up a pair of their ltd leather gloves in blue to match the shoes, they're slightly off color but they're comfy as hell.

    My latest (and biggest rto date) eBay purchase: 2011 Felt Z6 with 25 miles on it.

    Yes, I know the 25 miles is implausible, but when I saw the tire treads and the string that once held the price tag hanging from under the saddle, I now believe it. It literally looks like it's right out of the original box. I paid $900 and the MSRP in 2011 was $1700. I am very pleased with the deal.

    The only potential drawback for me is the Microshift pair of shifters with the Shimano 105 drive train. I'm considering looking for a nice pair of Ultegras to replace them. Any opinions on that?

    I am also thinking about "canabalizing" my Allez Elite by swapping the wheels. The Felt came with Mavic CXP22 wheels and I have upgraded Reynolds Solitudes on the Allez. What do you think?

    I'd love your input on what you think about making these 2 changes in the Z6 -- the shifters and the wheels. Thanks!!

    Nice find. Those CXP22's are heavy beasts to be sure, though. I weighed them at well over 2,000 grams total (no tires or cassette).

    This is one I'm excited about, as I can now see my apps on my phone while riding. As this is my first bike mount for my phone I have no other product to compare. Yet I looked at a bunch before making a decision, and the Quad lock looked the best. I got the bundle with the rain poncho. http://www.quadlockcase.com

    it looks great on my phone and bike. Very minimal (not bulky) and is very secure. When I put the poncho on there is no performance issues with the touch screen on my phone. Highly recommended.
    Also there is a 10% coupon on their site.

    Yeah, those Reynolds wheels are too good to let sit. They just don't want to stop rolling!!
