Thanks everyone--great info. In the end, I ordered the Kask K.50 Evo. Not the top of the line (the top one, the Vertigo, was the most amazing fitting helmet I've ever tried in my life), but the third...

Good, Well Vented Helmets with Insect Nets

I've done some searching (here and on the google), and I'm not coming up with many recent hits for good road helmets with insect nets. Got stung wildly last fall as my friend and I rode into a giant...

What's the deal with Kestrel? I see them at some of the higher end shops, but I also see them at BD. Same bike? Same company?

New Bike Advice (under $2700)

Hi all,

Fair enough kimconyc--though you might be having a go at me for going Chorus/Rival and not Super Record/Red. :)

Yeah, I'm familiar with a bike, so my question wasn't "Where's the adjusting barrel?" Or "What's a rear dropout?" I was asking what I'd need aside from wheels, pedals, and a gruppo. Never built one...

Yeah, well, the frame is very reasonable, and as I mentioned, I'm not rich. Figured I'd do my best for now, and eventually upgrade. I realize it's a bit like living in a trailer and driving a...

Building up a bike--couple of questions

Hi all,

I've gotten an opportunity to purchase a Cyfac frame at a great price from a friend. I'm on a serious budget and I do no wrenching, so I'm wondering what it would really take to build the...

Speedplay question

Argh! I know this is a dumb question, but I'm so confused. I've been riding Speedplay X-series (X-2, I think?) pedals since I bought my bike nearly 3 years ago. Replaced the cleats once, and just the...

New wheels to replace what came with my bike

Hi all,

I'm riding a Felt F75 with Shimano R500 wheels, and I'm thinking it's time to upgrade to something lighter. Looks like a new bike is out of the question at the moment, so I'd like to...

Really excited about this. Love doing centuries, but this looks like just enough of a casual contest (as in the real Gran Fondo style) to be something new. Wish it was sooner!
