    If I didn't take my good bike out for fear of it getting wet I'd never get to ride it. Here in south Florida it's going to rain OR in some cities they water the road as much as they water the median...

    Personal question.. how old are you? If you're like me and at "that age" when you need reading glasses to see your Garmin clearly, Tifosi has a great pair of cycling glasses with a small "reader"...

    If you like the Echelon (which I also have) you'll love the Propero II even better. Small differences in the ventilation (love the little front grill, really improves air flow) but the big difference...

    I could care less about matching honestly. The main reason I'm upgrading is for speed on the flats. Right now a 50x12 @ 90 rpm is 29.36 MPH whereas 53x12 @ 90 rpm is 31.12 MPH. Now I rarely go into...

    The question posed wasn't should I or shouldn't I, it was which one. The very nature of that question is such that I've already decided to spend MY money on one of them. So I was seeking...

    Excellent point... much better post than those telling me how to spend MY money (charity or with some overseas company). I never looked at it that way but great point! Thanks! Ride safe my friend!

    But I'm not talking a $400 difference, I'm maybe talking $25-$40 difference (then have the shipping costs, wait time etc), for that I'll buy local. If I was looking at an entire groupset then yeah...

    The only time you really use the 11 is downhill off a drawbridge but then there are stop lights that you might hit. The last time I used the 34 was last year on the old Tour DuPoint mountain TT...

    Same here in south Florida, the only thing that keeps you cool is the shade, the pool or constantly squirting water bottles on your back (to a point). Nothing evaporates in 100% humidity

    Yes. I'm in south Florida and the only time I've ever used my little chainring is when I just want to make sure the shifter still works. I've only used my little chainring outside of Florida
