    Some LBS will be 'non-stocking' dealers. For example, we were that way with Scott for a while (now stock) and have moved to non-stocking with Pinarello. Often times though, a LBS can arrange a "one...

    A local club that I belong to is predominantly retired riders, many of which are 60+. The club does a "March Madness" (who can log the most miles) and every year there are people who will put up huge...

    Until there's a way to easily track the number of RD & FD shifts that occur in a specific interval, there really isn't a better method. But you're absolutely right that mileage is a poor measuring...

    I have a TI-82 graphing calculator that has worked like a champ (new batteries every 6 months) since my Mom bought it for me when I went to HS (in 1996).

    Heh. It comes with the territory. When you're real proud of something you want to shout it from on top of a mountain, no harm in that.

    DA 7700 is considered the "gold standard" from just about all the gents I ride with who could afford it back then. A few them, who upgraded to 9000, told me (when we were building their bikes) that...

    I was just about to say... I haven't seen a photo of your SLR in a thread yet today. Case closed it would appear! :thumb:

    Many happy years with the bike, it looks awesome.

    Bikes are like cars, in that they don't follow the same model year calendar as Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.

    We saw 2015s in our shop as early as mid-June and as late as Labor Day (September 1st). We'll...

    Hardly. Especially considering I don't setup bikes. Rather it speaks to most people's prior experience to Shimano shifting and unfamiliarity with the uniqueness of SRAM's DoubleTap.

    If there's one thing SRAM groups have demonstrated to me on the sales floor is that there's an 90-95% chance that my test drive will come back with: "The bike doesn't shift right."

    Completely agree. Plus the S2/S3 looks a whole loot 'cooler' than the R-series. Most people gravitate to the Cervelo S-series in our shop just because it looks cool and then they ask what this.

    Do you look in the bike shop's MTB section or do you just go to their road bikes? We sell/build most of our high-end ($2500+) MTB bikes with 1x SRAM drivetrains.

    Be thankful you're not waiting for a 6.9 Domane Disc. The most recent estimate puts the bike at 42 weeks from when it was ordered (if you ordered it right away when they went available last year).

    Most of the distance guys that I've ridden with will usually use the following language:

    I rode "the metric" or "the century," versus the numeric...

    We are too... let us know when you find it.

    There isn't a big market for "premium" cycle insurance thus you're not going to find a lot of choices and the competition to drive the cost down.
