    This is one thing I think you can fairly blame BD for: their "retail price" or "this is an $X,XXX value bike!" claims are always a bit ridiculous. They're usually talking full retail pricing in...

    Record and SR Campy is fetish product that survives because a middle aged guys dream bike isn't a middle aged guy's dream bike unless it has SR on it. I think Dura Ace and Red arguably have the same...

    If they can get this at a Ui2 price point, have it work flawlessly and have the batteries last at least 500 miles, I think it's pretty cool. My thoughts:

    It's a niche brand selling cult products to cult buyers. To me, it also doesn't help that their offerings are so boring. The AC-R and v1-R are two of the least compelling top end bikes I can think...

    Build up a set of Farsports rims with good hubs. You can get a nice set of carbon wheels for much less than $1K. I've had a lot of luck with their products: lightweight and strong.

    These are all extremely nice bikes and perhaps overkill as a first bike. You can't really go wrong with any of these. Don't get hung up on Ultegra vs 105 shifters. I agree with people who say just...

    To me is six of one half dozen of the other. I put it on the NDS because I then avoid people yelling at me about violating the rules but I honestly couldn't care less.

    1. Illinois drivers are generally left-ward (road angel) skewed. 72% of people around here are reasonable around bikes.

    The head tube part seems self evident, I "grasp it" and don't need to reread thanks. The rest is really confusing here. Are you saying that top tube length doesn't matter because it's proportional...

    I also swam in college. When you're doing 10K+ yards a day, you do indeed get extremely fit. When I was 18 I completed 100X100 @ 1:20 in a yards pool, holding right around 1:07 / 100. Those were...
