I'm going to be buying something likely with 5800 this spring, so I'm just being an ass. My apologies :)

I think you really only get that kind of improvement if there's a set of Bold New Graphics, or a different finish of some kind. New cable coatings, that kind of thing would warrant a 100+ placebo...

It's definitely 100 more group. That's just pure mathematics. ;)

Also, you'll find the braking to be a solid 12 placebos more confidence inspiring, and the shifting is apparently 8 or 9 placebos...

I tried a trainer and didn't like it, years back. Just too boring and grim. I have ridden through bits of winter, but it feels like a lot of work to just go for a short bit of interval-ing, and I...

I'm wondering a bit whether the stock wheels on any of these are likely to be robust under my deuce-and-a-quarter of weight... Shimano RS11s, Fulcrum S5s, on the basic rim-brake 105 kit... are those...

From what I've heard, the 5800 stuff is pretty nice, and doesn't give up much except weight against the 6800 Ultegra, but that could be inaccurate.

I thought Rival was pretty decent, but I'm not...

They're both from "local shops", just my two favorite ones, the one that just has the specialized is a bit smaller, and I've probably talked more b.s. over the years when I've gone there, though they...

Dreaming of n+1, spring, and... discs?

Looking at the Synapse and Roubaix at a pair of local LBSs. One shop guy, who I like and trust, is generally anti-disc, and his shop sells the Roubaix. The other local shop of note has the Roubaix...

Depends.

If you want to run a super wide range cassette on the back, you might need the medium cage for that as well. It's a matter of what large cog the rear can handle, and how many cogs of...

Fork in this case is carbon, stem is threadless.

Basically, 11 or ten speed triple, sti. If I can get this for same price as a smoothie, maybe it's a better option?
