    I don't think this is Trek's fault; in this case, I think the dealer needs to take responsibility and make things right for the customer.

    Campy suggest a 109 kg (240 lbs) weight limit for the Zonda.

    I weigh around 220 lbs and have been using Zonda wheels for 3 years with no issues. In fact, they have held up a lot better than my...

    +1. Not to mention it could be an issue of safety. I was on a solo ride last weekend approaching a hill and noticed just as I was about to get out of the saddle that there were a pack of riders...

    Regular attention means that I have to true them occasionally; sometimes it is every couple weeks, sometimes couple months. Two of the wheelsets were built not locally, and it would be a pain to ship...

    I don't believe I am over-sized for the spoke count for either wheel set (both of which were built with heavier gauge spokes with extra durability in mind). I also don't believe the wheels were...

    I rode Campy Zonda wheels for two years (with tubeless tires) and did not have to true them once. Then one day, I hit a nasty pothole which caused the rear wheel to go very slightly out of true (I...

    I find that my Castelli bibs provide decent coverage against what you are describing; definitely much better than my LG bibs.

    I haven't ridden either so no direct experiences, but I know BMC made significant changes to the frame for 2014.

    Yes, but I am not the first owner. So it was custom for someone else. I would have gone for a slacker seat tube angle but other than that the geometry is spot on.



    That is a 32 mm setback...

    They are carbon tubes. I agree about the seatpost (it is a FSA); I will either sand the paint off this one or get the newer matte black one with the revised graphics.

    I do believe minor advantages such as aero frames/helmets/etc. can add up and be important for professionals. For us amateurs who do not get paid to race bikes, not so much.

    Get the best frame you can buy with Shimano 105 or equivalent; then get a nice, sturdy set of wheels. If you get an itch for something different as you lose weight, you can upgrade your components.
