But I had a pretty gnarly blowout yesterday. not sure what I hit but it created a hole bigger than a whole dime in the tire and a bigger one in the tube. I am surprised I didn't fall. Looks like new tires are coming earlier than i thought
I'll post a picture when I get my bike back. Took it in to get its 1 free tune up haha.
Wow. Every bike on this page is ridiculously nice and extremely well built. More photos! More photos!

Thank you. Coming from a 2013 CAAD 8 Sora that had MADDUX RS 3.0 wheels, the Easton EC70 SL are a huge improvement. With the Maddux RS wheels a lot of energy was spent just keeping the wheels spinning, no matter the speed. The Easton wheels, on the other hand, once you get them up to speed, your energy is not burnt as much trying to keep the wheels spinning but they in a way temp you to go faster. I did not like the low spoke count on the Ultegra Wheels that came with the bike so I never rode them and therefore have no point of comparison with them. The only foreseeable issue with the Easton EC70 SL wheels is the hub, they are last years model, Easton R4 hubs. As per Easton's FAQ page, these hubs may require an adjustment every 800-1000 miles using a cone wrench. The 2014 model is the improved, Easton V5 hubs and do not have this feature. These wheels are my everyday wheels and they fit my needs precisely. Hope the information helps.

I'm guessing Enve 6.7's
So I brought my bike into the shop I bought it from and they took out the BB, cleaned, packed it and re-installed it with the green locktite and now...the BB30 creak of death is dead!!! I couldn't be happier, back to quiet rides where the only things I hear are the birds, wind, and my heart trying to leap out of my chest! Thank you for your advice and I hope yours is still sound free.
new stem day.
Does anyone else get trolled for riding an aluminum frame, or is it just a Dallas thing?
