The CAAD 9/10 is a great deal IMO. I also like the Allez E5 frame & the Cervelo Soloist/S1/etc. If you know what you want & your size, go CraigsList. You can always pick up a cheap frame & build it...

FrankieV, I think I was on that year's Harlem Valley Ride. That was the most intense downpour I've ever ridden in. I really questioned my sanity finishing the 100 in the rain & lightning.

If that's the block near Grand Central, it's chaos at almost all times of the day.

People running into the street against the light, cabs jockeying for fares, and people jumping out of cars trying...

Just wake up early to ride before work. Once you get into the routine, it's easy. I get the bike & everything ready the night before.

Enjoy it. I've done it a few times & it's a great ride. The 150 route can be a bit of a grind towards the end, but it's still fun.

You had a 'support vehicle'?!@ Wow. I eat & drink little on long rides, but I can't imagine not eating at all on an 80+ mile ride. Even at slower speeds, you're burning off a ton of calories after...

15 degrees or colder Saturday & Sunday am. Cloudy & windy makes for a nice 'Feels like' temp of about 8 degrees.

Don't you have enough steel bikes over there already? Why would you want a retro version of a middling frame?
