    Just use the Wahoo app. Not as much fun as other options, but will get the job done and it is free.

    +1.

    My FTP is about 260W but I weigh 220-225 lbs, and doing steep sustained climbs can be painful without the right gearing. I would be looking for at least a 32-tooth cassette in the back, along...

    I have to admit; since buying a Wahoo Kickr in December, I have been doing a lot of my favorite routes on the trainer instead of actually going out and riding in the cold (you can program routes into...

    No. And being a smaller than ideal frame, I doubt standover will be an issue.

    Being just over 6' tall myself, I could make a 56 cm Trek work if it is the H2 geometry. With the H1 geometry, the...

    Having used both Mavic and Campy wheels, here is my take:

    - Campy have some of the smoothest hubs in the business (they are cone and cup hubs vs. somewhat poorly sealed cartridge bearings you find...

    You should also think about the geometry between those two. The Cannondale has a lower front end and longer reach compared to the Giant, meaning the Giant will put you into a more relaxed, upright...

    I like the build list, except the wheelset. I would suggest considering a Campagnolo wheelset instead, perhaps the Zonda or Eurus.

    Like this:

    I see; I didn't see OP's post. I suppose there is some merit to what they are saying as far as Campy parts not being as easily available as Shimano, but that personally wouldn't contribute to my...

    You don't have to. KMC make Campy chains as well (and Wipperman, if you are using 10-speed).

    A bit pricey, but I think it would be cool nonetheless.

    Thanks for sharing.

    It was down to 12 degrees (and close to 0 degrees with the wind chill) in the morning a couple days ago; it has been unusually cold.

    I have been riding a Seven Elium with Campy Record (10 speed) for a little over a year now; did a review of it here:

    By the way, you won't put out more power on a smaller frame. You might go faster if you can get yourself positioned in a more aerodynamic way on the smaller frame, but on the other hand, you might...

    No, the head tube angle doesn't make that much difference in reach. Plus if the new frame has a shallower HT angle, then the reach would be less, not more.

    Can you tell us what the old and the new...

    If it is in the budget, I think Di2 is well worth it.

    That said, if you are new to road cycling it may not be a bad idea to look for a good deal on a used bike. That way, if you don't like it you...

    I would go for the new Cervelo S3 assuming that it fits you; everyone I know who rides one really seems to like it. Also for what it is worth, the BH G5 was replaced by the G6 a couple years ago.

    In this day and age, with as many options as there out there, there is no reason why one can't find a frame that has both the appropriate top tube length and standover height. Those two things are...

    Campy suggest a 109 kg (240 lbs) weight limit for the Zonda.
