    That's the exact power meter I want.

    If Quarqs dropped in price, I'd highly consider them, otherwise I want the above.

    Right now I'm fighting "Campy Fever", so there's no telling what I'm going to end up with in the future. For now, I'm just logging miles on my new Shimano stuff, lol.

    It seems we are all to similar. I'd like to upgrade my 6700 to 6800 or Campy for improved hood ergonomics, but I honestly should just log a solid summer before I drop $500+ cash to switch groupsets. Either way, I'd still like to run a P2M/Quarq/Praxis power meter crankset.

    Right now I'm just debating whether I should finally go with some new wheels. I'd really like to pull the trigger, but I also want a suit for wedding season. A check from snow shoveling will arrive soon, which means I'll have enough cash to pull the trigger on the wheels if I so choose...

    I went from Ksyrium Elites to Flo 30s, very happy with them and they're relatively cheap.

    I wonder if I can get out my FSA english adapter out of my frame to run a BB30 crank? I'm happy with the 6700 crank, and should probably save my cash and just buy 52/39 rings.

    Very nice. I looked into Flo wheels for quite sometime. I'm still riding stock Mavic Aksium wheels and tires. I'm looking at a Pacenti SL23 build from PSIMET.

    I do think the 6800 crank looks good, and have considered switching to it, but that'd be a mostly aesthetic choice. I can live with my FSA SL-K Light crankset for the time being. I have entertained the thought of going to Praxis chainrings in 50/36. I always seem to get caught between front chainrings and I think switching up to a 36 would help alleviate that a bit. I might have to switch to a 12-28 cassette out back though... Or I could ride more and get stronger, right? Haha

    Thanks for letting me think out loud. What do you think of the FLO 30 wheels? I really was looking into FLO wheels for a long time, but have since opted for a lightweight aluminum clincher since it's better suited to my purposes.

    Well, after a LONG week of tests putting it off, finally got it back up and running

    Went by the LBS and picked up a ravx 3-15nm torque wrench: 80$
    drove around town looking for an extender to reach down into the top cap to get the expander: 5$ in gas
    drove to my apartment, picked up my bike and drove back to the lbs to ask how I make it reach it: 2$ in gas
    The look on my face when the dude separated the expander from the top cap to install it: priceless



    Thinking about it, having 5nm and 6nm preset torque wrenches...I have no use for this thing lol.

    Also...my phone takes REALLY crappy pictures in low light.

    Not that you need it now, but awhile ago I picked up a set of these bits (the hex-plus set of 3):

    Thats not the best price calculator. I would look at ebay/pink bike for 1. prices that people are selling them and 2 (and more importantly) prices that people are buying them.

    watch a few auctions on ebay with bids and see how high the price goes.

    It that the vibe that god blessed him with material possessions in a society that clearly judges the self worth of others on their material possessions? I am getting that also.

    Did he ever quit music like he said he was?



    Also, how long till my drivetrain needs replacement? I want some campy! (I think) Time to put some miles on her.
    Her name is Kate, and unlike my other girlfriend, she never tells me "no"

    I think you just hit the nail on the head! No idea if he quit music, perhaps he'll come back to this thread and give more details in that regard.

    I'm playing around with the idea of upgrading the RS80s that came with my CAAD10 to go a little more aero. Any suggestions?

    I deleted some car posts that were derailing the thread. Feel free to post that stuff in the Addiction thread; it doesn't belong in here.
