    Me too...I wasn't craving a new bike at all - but there it was all dusty in the corner of the shop after sitting for 2 years. Good luck with the Tramway. Last time I did it my Garmin said it was 116F.


    Anyway, I got new handlebars, the S-Works Aerofly bars. Heavy, at 265g, but they look fantastic and feel very stiff.



    And they went on the frame I purchased on the previous page of this thread. All built it up came to 15.16lbs with the powertap 404 clinchers. Gotta find a place to take 80 grams off one of these days. Crankset off ebay ended up matching the bike perfectly.



    Literally within 5 minutes of me finishing it up, rain started and will continue for the next 3 days. Doh!

    I think we're looking at 80+ in march, which might be early (as in, not used to the heat that early in the year). So where is this bike going to fit between the other two? (er, 3) Is that black or naked UD carbon?

    im in a dilema right now, found a really great deal on a set of matching FSA k Force carbon Seat post and stem, only dilema is the stem is a 90mm and the color way of the stem has the red lines while my supersix is the team color blue/green black white... dude is asking $100 for the set should i bite? my bike is a size 52,im not sure but i read somewhere the stock stem is either 100mm or 90mm .. would this be a wise purchase for me?

    Those would look good on my bike so I say buy them and if you don't like them send them my way (for free of course) and I'll make use of them.

    How does your bike fit now? 10mm can make a pretty significant difference in fit.

    I can attest to that. I got a 100mm stem thinking it was right for my bike when I had a 90mm on there before. Couldn't use it at all.

    Yeah, I wouldn't change the stem length unless a) I knew that it necessary/desirable or b) I was offsetting a change in reach for new bars.
    It's the spandex.

    to be honest I havent measured my stock stem, but I am pretty sure its not 110, maybe a 100mm if anything. I've always felt that my bike was on the long side wile on the hoods, but of course I got used to riding that way. I would say reach right now on my bike is on the longer side but not so much that it bothered me... I do have to reach for my brakes when im on a fast descent (50mph), also the bike is almost slammed its sitting on top of a 5cm spacer so even if the stem shortens length the drop should make up for it?




    this is how she sits right now FWIW

    It is likely a 100mm stem on there (you could always check to be sure). If you feel stretched out the 90mm stem would probably help. Personally I wouldn't be able to get over the fact that they don't match the frame though.

    The black is matte carbon, the white and red are gloss paint. The S-Works logo is matte too.

    I'm working for myself doing bike related stuff these days, so this makes a good 'congrats' bike for myself. Maybe it'll force me to get back into shape, as I'll feel like a real chump every time I get passed on this thing.

    Anyway, this will be the group ride / climbing bike. The Roubaix will be the century/double century bike. I still ride the Shiv every once in a while on the bike path during the middle of the day on weekdays, as it's a ghost town out there and I can actually put my head down and concentrate for 25 mi.

    I'm the same way - had to take a little sandpaper to a seatpost that had red on it. I was luck that the graphics weren't under a bunch of layers of gloss; only took me a few minutes to remove the decal and a few more to buff out the heavier scratches and put a dab of clear nail polish on it.
    It's the spandex.

    why not just match the current seatpost with a 90mm stem?

    I don't have any pics, but you can't tell that it was ever there. I will say, though, that the layer of gloss on the post seems thicker than on my handlebars (3T), for instance, so that probably helped to give a little more room for error.

    Lezyne Micro Caddy White S -- $14 @ Backcountry.

    I've been wanting a new saddle bag for a while. My current blue one just doesn't match a White/Celeste Bianchi, and HnR is convincing me to go smaller.

    Then to get to free shipping:

    Looking forward to trying it. I currently start getting discomfort at the two hour mark, or on back to back long rides.

    The have the black and green versions of the seatpost and stem, especially for that cannondale color scheme, but your going to have to pay for it, if you want the genuine part.

    Beware of the fake FSA stems on ebay, not sure how you would verify on CL that it is a genuine stem and seatpost , if it's $100 for both new I'd have to say fake.

    Quite like the design of this post, especially with both bolts at the back making it very easy to setup the seat angle and access the the bolts.
