Yep, there are a ton of shops in Portland including a handful who support Campy, but also huge demand and ridiculous lead times right now. This afternoon, I stopped in a well known shop who is also...

I have zero experience with Campy, but want to help a buddy replace hub bearings (rear is making noise, so planning on going through both while I'm at it). LBS support for anything Campagnolo...

Classic BF. :lol:

Save your $600. Carbon components don't have any noticable effect on road buzz, weight, and if anything, will be less stiff than aluminum.

BB30 tips?

I'm about to take a swing at BB30 for the first time. Anyone have words of advice? Preferred grease? With the correct bushings and a headset press, I assume it to be straightforward. I have heard...

Very ambitious. I love it. I think the aesthetics are good and are a distant secondary concern to ride characteristics.

Do you have any objective stiffness data available? Of course, the CAAD9,...

In Portland? Who's that? I can think of a few guys (ok, more than a few) who laid the wood to me this year, but I didn't know there was a 5--> 2 upgrade.

My HR strap has been collecting dust since the day my powertap arrived. Why would you want to measure the (delayed) response to work when you have the capability to measure the work itself?

Effin' lame crit. Fought hard to stay up front and position well for the sprint. Taken out in the last corner for the second time this year. Sweeping the field should earn you a neck punch.

He's maxed out the drop on a 56 and would have to go 2cm higher on a 58. At least that's all we can tell from a photo.

Unless you need/want > 12cm or so of drop, I think it makes sense to size...
