    I have a PI convertible, similar to the OP, and I'd say I ride it as a gilet 75+% of the time. I've found the sleeves to be too baggy so they flap in the wind, and only pull them on at cafe stops or...

    1 World Tour (AG2R) and 2 Continental (Roompot and Drapac) teams are using SRAM components this year. I believer there are a few others at whatever level exists just below.

    I can imagine that the Campagnolo family would look at what happened to the likes of Schwinn and Peugeot who got themselves to the top of their respective markets, but lost control of quality and...

    The moving brake lever has never bothered me, and I don't get why people complain about that part. I like equipment that performs multiple functions.

    I don't get the impression that Campy are afraid of automation, as much as decreasing quality control as volume increases. They don't come across to me as the sort of company to jettison labour as...

    This. So much this. I had 2 different bikes with the thumb shifter because at the time I thought paddle shifters were out of my price range. I genuinely hated both of them. When it came to buying a...

    Have you seen the price of new 11 speed 105 online? You won't get more than pocket money for old stuff. You're as well off keeping it as spares.

    What happens to those old chains that have done their duty, and are just entering that "might be stretched, might not be stretched, may as well replace it anyway" area?

    Around this part of NorCal, the flat ones and small hills are competitive enough, some friends have set some all-time top 10s already this year. But there's been no real assaults on any of the big...

    All the one-pieces I tried had this problem too. Which is strange, because at 5'10 185 I wouldn't think I'm longer or skinnier than most triathletes. So I bought separates, and I use the tri shorts...

    My concern would be with electronics just getting old. A guy came out on our local ride recently with 1st gen Record EPS, and his rear wouldn't shift. At all. Not a battery problem, and his LBS...

    You would also think if this was the case, then more pro teams would be switching to SRAM. AG2R are the only World Tour team riding SRAM in 2015, down from 8 teams in 2011. Shimano may pay teams more...
