Carbon faired aluminum FTW
And you never had this problem prior to the Zipps, or do you have a large bike frame - which is sometimes another culprit?
Agreed. Very annoying. Which is when I make up stuff of how I've crashed several times in races on this very bike...and soon withdraw the sale.
Yes, this one too, and gaping at me, expecting me to stop as I ride by, as if I am a magician...
...which I am sometimes.
They can't believe how quickly one can get going again after just a little...
Sweat dripping all over me and my bike, that I have to hose down the bike after every ride.
Very light people on very light expensive bikes - it's just not fair.
Maybe because squiggles is a girl who likes pink (can't tell from profile) or someone who just likes riding pink bikes; regardless the bike is well put together. Maybe we'll see a newer pic with...
Thank you, logging in after almost a year to find this :). Been using this bike for many months now and all is well, Di2 shifts perfectly.
Yep, on the bike since one can mull over issues over several hours.
One gets a bit sentimental parting with a beloved bike and companion, so I've ended up with 10 now.
Can't just let go of for example an old Trek with 20K miles, we've spent so much time together...
Giro show covers work in milder temps, neoprene for colder is a must.

To exand a bit - I would love to have a custom Lemond and pay good money for it - in the region of his current pricing. Not sure how many younger cyclists desire a Lemond frame, probably not even...
Do you think Lemond would fair better not getting into the over populated carbon field dominated by Giant etc, instead remaining niche with steel, titanium, carbon-mix etc and filling in the US made...
You make a good point, often neglected. Since we're speculating, Zoetemelk's always suffering performance is believable as clean, as more recently is Sastre's. Delgado on the other hand was caught,...
500 miles! On a BMC I bought last December! But I still ride with the Alu Mavics that came with it, can't bring myself to trash the carbon rings I immediately bought as a upgrade, mainly due to all...
Coppi was I guess old school and look where he got with all that saddle time he kept blabbing about; if he was around and on this forum we'd recommend your book to him.
In 2 lines this covers everything the OP should need to know. Good job.
You're talking Di2 correct - never thought I'd say this but this electronic stuff is sweet.
Are you actually looking for the chain rub noise to go away by applying some FD trim when you shift?
This unfortunately is true and a real bummer; you're never ever quite healed and every so often the limb reminds you that it is still injured.
A couple of reasonable choices are:
1) Costco bike (if you really aren't sure) $300
2) Local Bike Shop bike (an inexpensive bike with some minimal fitting and maintenance thrown in the deal) $500
All the best, wheel building is a special skill and sometimes frustrating and exhausting. Good luck and post pictures.
Yes you're more likely to break/hurt something when either the weather is cold and/or you're not quite warmed up.
