Work on your bike, run and transition!
If you're anything like most triathletes - the ones with weaker swim legs - you are both stubborn and deaf.
Here goes anyway! I've well over twenty years...
"for me" as in done by someone else more expert than I; ten months and all them miles later, the wheels are still perfect.
The Rokh was on my list, however, the Wilier GTRs head tube is shorter, so I went with that - also the complete bikes I was considering all had parts I didn't want...
sounds good OP - consider other wheel options, particularly custom built, for you, that look, last, and (way more important, imo) ride better.
fwiw, my choice for one wheelset (to "do it all") on...
The typical "endurance road bike" head tube is longer.
Among my finalists, the Rokh and GF01, however, both came with wheels I just don't want, and I prefer SRAM to Shimano. The GF01 does ride...
In my search for reach and drop such that the drops position would match up with #1 road bike, found Syntace Racelite2 at LeftLane.
Although the discounted price still well over budget - I'd...
Liking the GTR very much!
The GTR model has a shorter head tube that the GTS - shorter than most, if not all, the "fondo" type bikes; I wanted to replicate the position from #1 bike, Cervelo S2....
The Rokh made my short list (earlier this year) for an "all day" bike - second bike.
I prefer SRAM, so the change to Ultegra was a problem for me ...that lead to realizing that I'd...
Cervelo replaced my cracked 08 Soloist with current model S2, April 2013 - it took six weeks to deliver to local Cervelo dealer, who I worked through (not the dealer I bought from). Still, can't...
It's the overtaker's obligation to keep it safe.
On the open road, I start with "coming up" and go from there, depending.
Every encounter - ped, fellow cyclist of any stripe, biker, cager - is...
Build up your Hed C2 with White Industries hubs and cool double butted spokes?
Ritchey - cool name, cool products, sure. I have a set of Ritchey mountain wheels. After some many...
Front doesn't wear out fast enough now - here in SLO there aren't practice crits 2x/week; roads are straighter; fewer hills, less steep - so front to back, new on front.
Rear tire wears fast.
GP4000S II have been out for a while and chatted up on many forums as well.
I've the 25s on my "all day" bike; they're ok
You'll figure it out.
What's with the hair? ...woooow
One of the shop owners here in SLO says the gf01 is the best bike he's ever ridden, and I believe. He rides one setup with Red.
He had me...
at first glance, ha-ha
10% to children's charities, hmm..., thanks grafsk8er
My GTR has screws in the battery mounts - no doubt that's what they are, check the spacing - however, the frame didn't come with screws for the bottles.
+ on the never sieze
Samoa Cookhouse, yeah!
Purty woods, yaeh!
CSU puts a speck of Progressive in the northern wasteland, yeah!
Purty beaches, yeah!
Go visit for a few weeks first.
Perhaps I could get used to the shape and size of the Shimano equipment - not finding out, went with SRAM, again, Force this time.
What I saved vs other choices all went to wheels, again. I don't...
Very curious am I regarding your impressions; I'm waiting on the GTR model frame now.
Not here pal
Since this is the "33"
First, me ol' stomping grounds, Chico, where there's a few things to do, and it's somewhat of island in the rightwing conservative landscape...
My new bike - waiting on the wheels and frame - is 10s to match my #1 .
Oh yeah, why I'm posting: I believe a set of brifters will last more than a few years.
Granted that they...
