Nice and easy heart rates on the KOM's. Almost like they were just sitting and resting. :rolleyes:

It looks great. 3.0 Criterium series was only made from '88-92. I don't remember any with a black fork but it could have been repainted or damaged and replaced. It's a Cannondale aluminum fork for...

Wider rims/tires can make for clearance issues on some frames. Measure yours before buying. I've got 28mm wide rims and the only neg is I had to shave my brake pads a bit to get enough clearance for...

It's a great frame. A little harsh on the 19-20mm tires of the day, but a great handler. All 3.0 Crit frames are the same. Only difference is fork and components. Upper end models had an aluminum...

On the spin bike you don't have any other responsibilities other than to pedal. You can close your eyes and mindlessly pedal. On the road you still have to steer and balance. Doesn't sound like...

Same here. I tried on both and both fit fine. I then looked in the mirror. M looked stupid (well more stupid) on my head. I went for the large.

Very similar geometry as my Salsa FargoTi. If it could handle 2.0" tires it would be nearly perfect. The only thing I don't like about the
Fargo is the suspension corrected geometry. I don't ever...

I've got a bike rental lined up for Red Rock already. I've done it several times and cars have never been an issue. I'll probably do 3 laps before it starts getting too hot.
If I can find a...

Thin wall aluminum and carbon just make more noise. I agree a nice steel bike that is tuned up can just glide along in silence. Sometimes the noise form carbon/aluminum is good when its something...

I think that Jacobsever may be on to something. I think it looks awesome! No negative handling that I noticed. Just a little bit lower positioning. I do like to run a front brake so that is a...

I think he is on the shorter side so he has to get the smaller frames. But doesn't like the sloping top tubes so he lowers the front end with the smaller wheel. Not something I would do but if it...

But why? If only on the track I can maybe see it, but it already has steep track geometry. It's only steeper with the 650 wheel. If it's on the road then you have to carry two sizes of tubes or...

I've never liked the way a round seat post and an oval seat tube looked together. Of course the seat posts that have an oval top with a round lower section look even worse.

Then you wouldn't ride much in lower TX between May an Sept. Honestly I'd rather ride at 85* than 65*. In the heat I much prefer going against the wind. It really helps. Cruising at 20 mph in 95*...

The only thing I don't like is the brake levers. But no one liked mine either. Oh, and no bottle mounts.

I like the dummy levers but I do agree on the stem. It's leftover from when the bike was Saeco Team red.

I can only answer the Eno question. It's a great hub in itself but fairly expensive. It's available in 126, 130 and 135mm. It's really just the end caps that are different. Same hub. The only...
