    I'm going to be buying something likely with 5800 this spring, so I'm just being an ass. My apologies :)

    I think you really only get that kind of improvement if there's a set of Bold New Graphics, or a different finish of some kind. New cable coatings, that kind of thing would warrant a 100+ placebo...

    It's definitely 100 more group. That's just pure mathematics. ;)

    Also, you'll find the braking to be a solid 12 placebos more confidence inspiring, and the shifting is apparently 8 or 9 placebos...

    I tried a trainer and didn't like it, years back. Just too boring and grim. I have ridden through bits of winter, but it feels like a lot of work to just go for a short bit of interval-ing, and I...

    I'm wondering a bit whether the stock wheels on any of these are likely to be robust under my deuce-and-a-quarter of weight... Shimano RS11s, Fulcrum S5s, on the basic rim-brake 105 kit... are those...

    From what I've heard, the 5800 stuff is pretty nice, and doesn't give up much except weight against the 6800 Ultegra, but that could be inaccurate.

    I thought Rival was pretty decent, but I'm not...

    They're both from "local shops", just my two favorite ones, the one that just has the specialized is a bit smaller, and I've probably talked more b.s. over the years when I've gone there, though they...

    Rain sometimes, no racing. Also mainly solo, so I'm not terribly worried about the other kids making fun of me. I'm also a fat bastard, aging into decrepitude at an alarming rate (the bike is by way...

    Dreaming of n+1, spring, and... discs?

    Looking at the Synapse and Roubaix at a pair of local LBSs. One shop guy, who I like and trust, is generally anti-disc, and his shop sells the Roubaix. The other local shop of note has the Roubaix...

    I'm not sure it's that interesting to me that professionals ride the new gear... they have a car with replacement parts and mechanics rolling along not far behind them, which I haven't been able to...

    Dude, that list is seriously impressive. I don't think I have the discipline to get anywhere near that... I also don't sleep well on my back, so I always bring a heavier therm-a-rest with me...

    This all makes my head hurt. 8 pounds, as others have said, can go essentially anywhere, and unless you are a mountain of a man beating the weight limit on the bike already, it won't really make any...

    My planetbike blinkies have been pretty reliable, and they really aren't all that much money for one or two of the superflashers for "be seen" coverage. I spent more on a headlight (L&M ARC, worth...

    Depends.

    If you want to run a super wide range cassette on the back, you might need the medium cage for that as well. It's a matter of what large cog the rear can handle, and how many cogs of...

    I really like bare matte ti, stainless with brazing in an off color, or bare looking carbon fiber.

    I'd say this thread is like walking into the vatican and screaming that your spoon stole your soul to use it to power a spaceship, and that you need funding.

    God help me but this early winter is bloody dreadful, isn't it?

    Wear whatever you want.

    How you have bloody nipples running in a 5k I do not for the life of me understand.

    If you think...

    How narrow a tire can you put on the diverge without adverse effect? If you can basically run it down to a skinny option akin to the roubaix equivalent, I'm swooning and thoroughly in a love at...

    I used to use a quite large cannondale seat wedge bag on my bike when we lived in the city.

    LARGE SEAT BAG, AS IT WAS THE ONLY CORRECT WAY TO LIVE AND RIDE A BICYCLE.

    Then we moved, and I...

    Fork in this case is carbon, stem is threadless.

    Basically, 11 or ten speed triple, sti. If I can get this for same price as a smoothie, maybe it's a better option?

    Serotta Colorado CRL Question

    Question about an older Serotta Colorado CRL frame.

    Were these off-the-rack, or custom? Any reason to worry about stiffness for a 200-and-change-pound rider?

    Any concerns about condition and...
