    I agree. But we live in CA. Not too much humidity here in comparison to FL where your how-do-you-do sticks just by standing around.

    That make sense. Living in CA i'm more concerned climbing hills. So, i'll wait for the 34/50. I just realized my CAAD10 has a 34/50 as well so this is what i'm accustomed to.

    I agree my 105 11 speed is pretty nice. I didn't know Athena was 11 speed. Is it better to just go full Athena for approx. $100 more? Campagnolo Athena Alloy Groupset 2015 - Black | Merlin Cycles

    Thanks! Hmmm.. this bike brand new is $1,500 (Impulso 105 Compact | Bianchi USA). Although, it has 105 groupset.

    I guess the celeste color, wheels and veloce groupset makes it worth it.
