    Thanks for the advice! I'm thinking the R11s must be heavier than that though. I weighed my front wheel yesterday (with tire and tube) and it came in at 1250grams. I can move something from another...
  2. Scott CR1 frames - 2014 CR1 vs. 2013 CR1 comp versus CR1 Elite

    I just got a crazy deal on a new (2014) CR1 10 with 10 speed Ultegra shifters, but I'm looking for ways to get the weight down. When I look at the advertised weights of previous model year CR1s...

    Performance branded in line levers. Less than $20 and adjustable reach. The stock drop bar was a 40mm c-c with standard reach. I swapped it out for a 36mm c-c short reach, and added the shims to the...

    Don't worry, she won't be on busy roads anytime soon. We suggested the mountain bike route, but she was set on a bike like her dad's. We are blessed to have a recreational lake close by (paved roads,...

    Road bike for a nine year old

    The mechanics forum gave me lots of good advice on the upgrades on this one. I wanted to get my nine year old daughter into road cycling, and came upon this bike. I upgraded the bars (went with a...

    My bike has a FSA gossamer compact crank on it with the Mega Exo exterior cup bb. I'm taking a new Shimano R565 off another bike, and I'm wondering if it is compatible with the FSA bb or if I need...

    Yep, Tiagra. They saved some $ on the bike by going Tiagra on the cassette and the FD. The crankset is a Shimano FC R565. Brakes are the non-series Shimano black. I thought about swapping the...

    Yes, even a warranty! It was still bought new off the dealer's floor. Still have not even put real pedals on it. The platforms were only added so I could take a test spin.

    Ungortunately not, I think I pretty much swooped in at the end of it! Tall guy leftovers, an XL framesize. I'm hoping that means you concur that it was a pretty good deal ;-).

    first new road bike in about 10 years!

    So the last time I bought a road bike back at the end of '04 I posted about it, and almost 10 years later I've made an upgrade! Sadly a local shop was going out of business and had to let everything...

    So it sounds like what I am hearing is that my current crank, a Shimano compact R series something, (565?) with solid arms is not substantially heavier than an H2 Ultegra. Correct?

    Hmmmm...the weight is surprising. I assumed the current crank was closer to a Tiagra and would be much heavier. I definitely don't want to spend extra money and negate the good deal I got on this...

    I never ride (well, hardly ever) in inclimate conditions, bike is stored indoors, and always wiped down after every ride. That said, the cable housings have probably not been replaced in about 2...

    I'll give it a shot. Is WD-40 the way to go, or should I spring for some bike specific solvent? I don't mind giving it a shot. Not like I can do more harm, since my prior position was to replace...

    No extra clicks. I just push the small paddle once, twice, nothing happens. Maybe the third time it shifts down a cog. Sometimes it works on the first try though.

    When to replace road bike shifters?

    I am riding a 10 year old road bike with first generation Ultegra 10-speed shifters. Awhile back, the right shifter started acting hit or miss (when shifting to smaller cogs). I turned the bike...
  22. Building a quick release brake caliper - bad idea?

    My daughter has a kid's road bike with caliper brakes. However, they are not QR, and the tires are fattish (about 1-3/8"), so in order to put it on a car top bike rack I have to totally release the...
