    My primary goal for next year is to hit a specific finish time in the State TT (June), so I'm hoping to build FTP and really focus on TT position throughout the season. My secondary goal is playing...

    Yes, just pull the cassette straight off. You need to remove the skewer first. The first time I did it, I thought the thing was broken. It's actually a pretty clever design. The hardest part is...

    All pt wheels made in the last 4ish years support 10 and 11 speed without tools or redishing. The only thing you need is a free hub that supports 11. What's nice about the pt design is that the...

    the speed at which "they" don't think it's silly to ride carbon. As you go faster, you do save more watts, but you theoretically get a benefit at any speed.

    Yes, you'll get the most aero benefit on the front. As mentioned earlier, it's also pretty common for TT and Tri folks to use an aero front and shallow rear with a disc cover. You usually only use...

    2013 was a low "investment" year for me. Getting a house ready to sell, moving to a rental, building a new house, etc., no real time to train, but felt that I made the most of my limited fitness and...

    If you can keep a decent position on the TT bike for 5 hours, you don't need much fitness to do a 5 hour century. It's pretty hard to average less than 20mph on a TT bike unless you're just poking...
  10. Specialized Cb-R seatpost - are these available?

    I bought a specialized Roubaix frameset last April. It's an S-works model that was supposed to have the CB-R seat post (the cobble gobbler if you will). When I unpacked the new frame from the box,...

    I've got many thousands of miles on KMC chains and have never had a problem. That said, I just picked up a couple ultegra chains at PBk for $23 each, which is less than I paid for the last batch of...

    State TT today, 40k, pretty flat and non-technical course. It was my first attempt at a 40k.

    I haven't been racing/training much this year, so I've been cramming for this TT for the last few...

    Nice job, congrats on the podium. I was in the same race, made a half-assed attempt for the second prime and missed it by a spot or 2. I haven't been racing much and my fitness sucks, so it was...

    I'm the same height with a little longer inseam. I've owned both and and I prefer a 56. Most people can ride a couple different sizes, it's just a matter of setup. Generally, it's easier to make...

    Thanks, sounds like it's worth waiting. I'll just run a regular post until the new one comes in. I've been wanting a new Roubaix for a while and finally decided to pull the trigger after a 100 mile...

    These are the kind of people I would never leave my bike with. They are either stupid or trying to mislead you. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and just think they are stupid.
  19. Specialized Cobl Goblr seat post - Are they available? Worth waiting?

    I just picked up my new Specialized Roubaix frame and it was supposed to come with the Cobl Gobl-r seatpost (sort of a funky design to smooth the ride a bit).

    Anyways, the frame didn't have a...

    With the exception of using a pm to pace effort in a TT or break, you are correct that it doesn't really come into play much in a race (at least not for me). A PM is primarily a training tool and a...

    That 4/5 race is frustratingly jerky at times, I find it harder in some ways that the 3/4 or masters open (harder to sit in, not harder to get results). The 3/4 and masters are a little faster, but...
