    In the run-up to a local bike jumble I gathered all my spare parts. Discovered I was a frame shy of a complete bike. Sold all it, now I'm just hoarding wheels......

    The above have all been covered but mine are in no order:

    The frame is unusually heavy. I owned the 61cm size briefly and it was 2260g (frame only, uncut ISP, including ISP topper, stripped of paint). Not sure the reason other than Fuji wanted it to be...

    I see plenty of nice bikes being ridden around the city, but rarely are they locked up. Saw this head-scratcher on the LES a couple days ago:

    ^

    My 2012 F1X features the same style of cable routing. No way you could do internal mechanical on a stock frame.

    I gotta give Fizik credit. Basically the entire original Kurve product line was defective (given enough time the shell would start to crack, regardless of rider weight). Knowing this, Fizik revised...

    I picked one up during the nashbar clearance and sold it within a few months. It was a fun novelty, but the geometry is way too aggressive for street use (150mm head tube on a frame with a 60cm TT),...

    I've tried close to 20 different bars over the years and for city riding I always come back to flat bars/risers. Just not too narrow (~20in). The nice part about SSFG is the ease of swapping bar/stem...

    Muscle memory = unclipping becomes second-nature. Remember that people have been mountain biking clipped in for 20+ years. Also, what's to say that slipping off the pedal wouldn't hurt you more in a...

    "Big" isn't quite accurate, it's more like "tall". The reality is that standover height doesn't matter. When you're on the bike it's irrelevant and when you're stopped you can just tilt the bike to...

    It does not. I agree with the sentiment that you won't feel the difference in stiffness. You'd make better gains by changing to a stiffer frame.

    Jackets: Yes. A cycling-specific cut with longer arms and longer back make enough of a difference to justify owning.
    Gloves: No, especially for lower temps.

    The anodizing will rub off eventually. Just make sure to set up your brake pads properly so that the wear is even. Google "archetype brake" and you'll find plenty of pics.
