Damage isn't always obvious, the only way to check in a reasonable amount of time is to tap it- any delaminated spots will sound very different. And congrats! That means you also have a power meter....
Nope! You may have to replace cables/tires/tubes, but those should be the only thing that would suffer from age. Just make sure the carbon is in good shape and you don't see any rust anywhere.
Parts do wear out, and some components may have nicer, newer counterparts, but if it's been well-taken care of that's the deal of the day. I would also argue a guess that that model bike spends a lot...
Just joined the club. Need some new bars and cranks, but besides that it's a really solid bike. Also in off-season mode, hence the...
This makes the purist in me cry.
Throw on 700x28s (if you can fit them) and you should be golden.
30psi isn't unreasonable for tubies. I can run clinchers at about that pressure during races (I usually do 32/35).
I'm in Fort Collins and I'll say that just about anywhere on the Front Range is a great choice for cycling. You really can't go wrong.
What are you planning on doing with it? For racing, the close ratios aren't a bad thing. There's a reason 36/46 or something similar is so common.
Bone Bender is a fun 3/6 hour race in KC.
Their geo may not be anything new, but it's probably the cheapest good frame you can get. I'd ride one.
I'm with scrublover on this one. 15 year old MTB components aren't worth a ton at this point.
It's only $2600...
Storck makes some super bling bikes, but they're also fairly pricey. But they also don't make any bad ones, so if you can afford one go for it. German engineering is da bomb.
There were some very good ones and some not as good ones. It's hard to generalize, but there's potential for $150 to be a steal for one.
The thing is, cheap Ti frames are still going to run you about a grand. There's no way to do Ti for cheap.
That's probably the most unique bike in this thread. Awesome!
I would assume that it would all fit fine on your bike; they seem to have no problems shoving 11 speeds onto the same area as 10 before. And if you're looking at wanting this, you could get by...
REI has done something similar for a long time and they're still thriving. I don't see Competitive Cyclist going away any time soon, especially since they now have a huge company behind them.
I like the yellow.
Selective color? Really?
Your bike would probably fit better if it matched your team kit.
Is that serious? I hope not.
