    I was thinking of getting my wife a pair of Craft Active Shorts, with the longer inseam, not the hot pants version.

    Anyway, I can't find any reviews or comments on how craft shorts fit. Do they...

    I've had fenders on my Centuerion for years. I run 23c tires though. However, when standing and climbing, I do notice a bit of rub. As a result, I got into the habit of climbing while seated in low...

    PBK had some Craft Pro Zero's for about $23 a couple weeks ago. I think they'll get some more in soon. I like 'em.

    All it needs now is a wheel upgrade.

    Unlike CF handlebars, CF stems don't really eliminate much vibration from the road. If anything, alloy tends to be a smidgeon stiffer, which helps with steering and sprinting, in a minute way. So, CF...

    This may be a blessing in disguise. Buy another set of Shimano wheels for your bike.

    Then, save the Campy wheels, and build yourself another bike with a Campy groupset.

    Now, you can ride both....

    MAKE SURE you remove the cassette if you use brake cleaner. Brake cleaner EATS O-rings. If you do pull the cassette, like the OP said, then yeah, it's great stuff. :D

    I can see filling ones tires with He, then about an hour later, riding home on flat tires.

    (The Helium molecule is so small, it literally leaks right through the butyl rubber.)

    My next wheels will probably be a set of Soul 2.0's. As much as I love my Rolf Elans, they are a pricey venture. Soul 2.0's are pretty darn close in weight/performance for half the price.

    If you're willing to spen $10 for shipping some stores that service them will be willing to do it for as little as $30 plus parts for labor, which is a lot cheaper than buying a whole new shifter.
