    That's because GM (and the others) have been trying to maximize shareholder value, a concept that's been described as the dumbest idea in the world.

    Interesting, I didn't know something like that was available. I've been happy with these thin, heat moldable insoles in my dominators, but if I wanted a thicker insole I would definitely get those.

    This discussion was beaten to death a couple of months ago, and apparently Stucky still doesn't grasp basic physics. I wouldn't waste my time trying to convince him.

    I like the organized centuries, but only get a chance to do one or two a year around here. I suspect if they were weekly events I'd get bored with them fairly quickly.

    On average, I hit the deck at least once every winter due to ice. Haven't crashed on dry roads since 1977, but I was young and fearless then.

    Hot^2.
    Guess you don't have much motivation to switch wheels between them, but it should work - right?

    I stopped accumulating jerseys last year because the two drawers I store them in are full.
    I'm too lazy to count how many there are, but the truth is I only wear about a dozen of them regularly.

    Well, that's an option too, although like me the OP already has 10 speed wheels, which is why I'm sticking with 10 speed.
    Also, there is no 11 speed group available at the same price as the Tiagra.

    You certainly seem to have a mix of parts on your bike. Not telling you what to do, but if you are thinking of spending $300 for a new shifter and related parts, why not just get a whole new...

    I don't think that will work very well. The spacing on the cassette won't match the throw of the shifter.
    I did something like that by mistake once (9 speed cassette on 8 speed bike) and it was...

    If it is the right size for you, that OCR is a great bike. I sold mine for $400, so I'd say it's a good deal too.

    I'm pretty sure the weak spot will be the wheels, you would be hard pressed to break that frame.

    I agree with CafeVelo though, carrying a lot of weight (especially on...
