    I've seen bare Garmin 500s popping up for $150 lately. They're good little GPS units

    ding ding.

    I'm pretty sure "but there's other models I'd get" applies to any bike over $5,000 for me.

    I suppose it encourages you to out-ride your own special scent? :D

    Padded gloves would definitely help - most of them have a relief channel in the middle of the heel of your palm where the ulnar nerve path is, supposedly it helps.

    I have the same problem, about half a mile of 8% followed by a hundred yards or so of 18%, so I can go for a nice easy ride and be feeling good, and then I'm a hot sweaty mess by the time I actually...

    You can also get Red cranks if you're not totally stuck on Force... The Red-owning crowd seems much more likely to upgrade every time some tiny improvement comes down the road. I even have a spare...

    What kind of races, triathlons? Time trials only?

    I'd say get the clip-ons and see how you like it. No point in investing a ton of money into a new bike if you hate the activity.

    The old Red cranks are fine but the chainrings blow. In my opinion, they are at least 50% to blame for all the grousing about poor front shifting on SRAM groups. The good news is you can put the...

    Where do you live? 255 is far from "super" clyde territory and unless you're bombing down mountain roads on carbon clinchers you'll be fine with rim brakes.

    Congrats!

    I have to say, the flattest century I ever did was 4,000 feet and I missed the 6 hour mark by about 6 minutes. :( I wouldn't know what to do with 1,000 feet. :thumb:

    Keep in mind some bars are measured outside to outside and some are center to center, so a 44cm C-C bar is probably identical to a 46cm O-O bar. Some measure at the bottom of the drops too, so if...
