    I like the sound of my r45's (with alloy rims). I understand that older ones were even louder?

    I wouldn't make a big deal out of the year. These things aren't like cars where you would clearly know. I'd say that's somewhere between an innocent mistake and a poor attempt to fudge the value a...

    Hood River does not have a desert-like feel. That would be The Dalles and further east.

    Okay - I'll lay off the Strava dig. I was just surprised to see it mentioned at all in relation to bike shopping considerations. True enough that it wasn't the point of your post. My bad.

    4600 10-speed Tiagra? Is that older Sora with thumb shifters (probably)?

    If yes to both, yes.

    If yes to either, I'd probably do it.

    If going from the newest Sora to 4500 9-speed Tiagra,...

    While I understand the draw of more exclusive brands, I'm happy as a clam with my carbon (rim brake) Synapse, 5800, and a nice set of wheels. I'd maybe go Hi-Mod and 6800 with a larger budget. On...

    Yes, I've heard that makes a noticeable difference for 5700 and 6700 groups (at least in bringing the rear shifting 'feel' up a notch). I plan to run those (w/5700) fairly soon as well. The front...

    I had 6600 (with 5600 shifters). I like full 5800 a bit better; hood shape, braking, cables, and shifting (especially in the front). Also have 5700 now on the latest 'rain/beater' I picked up, and...

    I'd say no. The aero effect is the main thing you'd be buying. So for purely flatland, tri/time trial kinda stuff, maybe. Otherwise, not really.

    Maybe try again when your front wheel is fixed and replaced on the bike. Ditching the rear light, bottle, and cage would 'look' better for staging...but I think that's a little silly.

    ^ I think he meant sell the new frame that Trek would send. Never ride the replacement...just sell it. You are right that the damaged frameset typically must be forfeited to 'claim' the new one.

    I'd say keep searching. You could offer 40-50% of his asking price...but that doesn't tend to go very well.
