    I agree with the OP. I wish there were some good ~$100 lights with a decent beam cutoff. I run a Lezyne Super Drive XL and it's way too blinding to oncomers on high. I turn down to low and/or angle...

    I don't think my lycra shorts and jersey are going to prevent any significant amount of road rash in a crash. But in this hypothetical scenario I'd rather buy a new kit than deal with road rash...

    That chain catcher design doesn't look so great. It doesn't look like it prevents the chain from moving inward far enough to drop the chain as you shift from the big to small ring. I think the K-Edge...

    These would tempt me if I was in the market now. They are Kinlin rims. I use Kinlin XC-279 rims and run a White Industries T11 front hub with my Powertap G3 rear.

    I'm not excusing your LBS mechanic but FYI a (properly adjusted) chain catcher would prevent that from happening. I install them on all of my new carbon bikes before they see their maiden voyage. As...

    The closer you're riding to FTP your energy source skews more toward glycogen than fat. In fact, at and above threshold you're running off almost pure glycogen. So it makes sense that trained...

    If you look at the Felt AR white paper the Foil did not test that well in terms of aerodynamics. You might also consider the Cervelo S2. It's just as aero as the S3 according to Cervelo and I don't...

    I'd personally get the Zipps. Zipp supposedly builds the CF Aelous wheels for Trek. I'd feel odd running Bontrager wheels on a non-Trek bike. I wouldn't go for anything deeper than 60mm for crits or...

    I bought both Pros and Elites from Amazon in M (they run a big sale on PI every January.) Tried them on the bike and returned them for L (they were too tight.) I couldn't feel any difference between...

    You may think it looks stupid but that's the "pro" look many amateurs try to emulate. The Hot'R'Not thread is basically a popularity contest to see how few spacers you can run.

    I hadn't heard that. Hope that doesn't mean innovation will suffer at Cervelo. Rinard seems like a laid back guy and I'm guessing that was a high stress job. Or maybe he just got offered more money...

    The channels aren't relevant in practice since you sit on the smooth part of the chamois when you're sitting on the saddle. I couldn't feel any difference between the Pro and Elite chamois on the...

    What year and model Roubaix frame? The new SL4 is a very stiff frame. The older SL2 is a lot smoother riding. The SL3 is somewhere in the middle. It's not the Zertz that determine the ride quality of...

    Nice try at backtracking. So the grandpa bike comment was not meant to be pejorative? The fact is that your position could be duplicated on virtually every endurance bike on the market. So please...

    This is fellow forum member's bike (jmx). It shows that a Roubaix can be setup in an aggressive position if you're into that. I think it looks pretty good too for a "grandpa bike."

    Seriously? Are you even paying attention? That position is anything but aggressive and could easily be duplicated on an endurance geometry bike. It would look better too since he wouldn't have to run...

    No pics yet, bike looks wonky right now while I play with the fit. I asked the shop to put a 90mm on stem but they actually put a 80mm stem which looks really short. Need to go back next weekend and...

    Or the new S2/S3 which only give up 4 watts @ 25mph to the S5 and you gain a more compliant ride. I may be biased since I just bought an S2.
