    I wouldn't think the plastic riser accessory from a trainer would have a deep enough cutout to keep your bike upright, plus you'd be putting a lot of sideways strain on your front well even if it...

    You are correct. I wrote it that way because the OP said he just bought his first road bike and I wanted him to be able to understand what I was saying - I was afraid throwing the axle into the...

    It sounds like the skewer wasn't seated all the way in your dropouts when you tightened it. If one side wasn't seated then it would make the wheel off center causing it to hit one side of the brake....

    FWIW, I recently switched to a 11-23 11 speed cassette with a 53/36 Dura Ace 9000 crankset. Seems to be working very well for where I live (Middle Tennessee with shorter, steeper hills).

    Thanks for all the input. I've decided to go with the S3. I know it's a great bike and will perform how I want it to, and there are too many unknowns about what improvements will actually be felt...

    Thanks for the insight. I'm not worried as much about comfort as handling, stiffness/climbing, cornering, and being as aero as it can. I guess the ultimate question is did they close the gap that...

    Great feedback. I was afraid the S3 or S5 wouldn't be as stiff. I'm okay with the weight penalty I'm going to pay when switching. Thanks!

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. It definitely makes me lean towards the S5. I'm on a Supersix Evo Hi-mod now, and I haven't had a problem with the stiffness or ride quality of that bike on long...

    Help - Cervelo S3 or S5?

    I'm trying to decide between the new S3 and the new S5. I know people that have the S3 and love it (confirmed by many reviews I've read). New S5 looks awesome, but since it won't be out until...

    I would agree widening your handlebars helps some with bike control. From a fit standpoint, wider bars will bring you closer to the bars (your hands are spread out more) so if you want to keep the...

    What was your rationale to shorten the stem by half? That will drastically change the way the bike feels - both how it handles and how you feel riding it.

    As far as parts where you don't tell...

    More than likely you are having problems because the tread is new on your shoes and it makes a tighter engagement (meaning the tread is resting on the flat part of the SPD pedal). This problem will...

    Can I use a Shimano 11 speed cassette with a SRAM Rival 22 rear derailleur? If so, would it be better if I used a Shimano chain or a SRAM chain? Thanks for the help!

    Thanks! I'm not aware of any wreck in our field. I tried to stay towards the front once I got back in but it seemed to stay pretty well together until the last few laps.
