    I don't imagine the OP wanted to discuss the merits of pacelines, he just wanted to express his surprise that some folks choose to do that stuff.

    If you're happy with your frame, I don't think there's anything wrong with getting "better" wheels because those will stay with you when/if you upgrade your frame.

    Of course, that from a guy...

    I suspect that most everyone would agree that the CL 24s are "a nice combination of light weight, high-quality..." It's where I settled out after going through the same gyrations. Does that mean...

    I listen to music on pretty much every solo ride. I can still hear cars approaching, although certainly not as well as someone who isn't listening.

    Congrats on the new wheels; they look great.

    I almost hate myself for asking this :), but did you happen to weigh them before you dressed 'em up?

    In a review I read, the author referred to kit as "clothes designed for dolls."

    Lizard People! Awesome (lol).

    I appreciate that some folks worry about their ride data, but I sure don't. Nothing could be less interesting or less informative. Plus, all of the ads I am served...

    I'm not local, but I've ridden the western half of your route. If I remember right, Pioneer Parkway mostly has a good bike lane, but felt a little like a bigger road; not too bad though. Iron...

    I own that Sidi shoe, in part because it is available in wide widths -- at least it is in black. It's fine, but I sure don't love it. The upper feels like it is made of plastic and even after...

    I don't think owning a less common brand will be a problem as any respectable bike mechanic can service most any bike from most any brand. The only exception might be if you need help with a major...

    Fiery, thanks again for the input. I've been using 3T Ergonovas in part because of the shape of the ramps (with SRAM) so I can try those first with the 6600 to see how they work for me -- they seem...

    Interesting. As I mentioned, I had only a brief ride on 6600 but I sure didn't like the hoods, they seemed too short front-aft or something. I wondered whether that could be mitigated with bars...

    I'm about to buy a Tarmac from a friend with 6600. Because it's about 5 years old, I assumed...

    Try a post-ride recovery drink (carb/protein mix); it should help to reduce the soreness. Lots of options available.

    What does quality mean? Come on now, don't be silly. The folks at Fairwheel contrasted the rims and made a statement. If that doesn't matter to you, that's just fine with me.
