NE Ohio? Who do you ride with? How about Zipp 303s. Some on this forum seem to have the impression that 303s are fragile and a death wish, but people who actually own them and use them have good...

What kind of riding do you do? If you're into flat riding, then the extra weight of the Vista won't matter. However if you want a better all around wheelset, I'd go for the Ultegra/OpenPro for a...

Pic 2 looks better, but might be more comfortable with moving the seat forward. Try a zero offset seatpost since your stem is already fairly short. I wouldn't go shorter than the 90mm for the out...

I've had one for about two months. It works well with 9 and 10. I upgraded to 10 since getting the crank and I would recommend it. It does appear to be Ultegra level, but the chain rings and...
