    His brother currently races for Cannondale and did the Giro this year. That's a strong cycling family.

    Team Europcar...oh, sorry, I thought the title said "Annoying road cycling teams you could live without"

    I think the biggest thing is to keep doing what you're doing and adjusting it until you feel comfortable. I have mine live starting from the nose to about 3 inches back when the saddle starts to...

    Yes, the part you sit on is supposed to be sloping down. That's the design of the power saddle and why it differs from other saddles. It allows you to be in an aggressive position but have your hip...

    The power saddle is designed so that it sweeps upwards after the nose. So if you are looking at it the front half is level and the back half sweeps up. I run mine with the front half level to the...

    I've got about 300 miles on mine and two crits. I came from a Toupe. i'm liking this saddle very much. No complaints so far. I'm running the nose level to the ground. Feels great in the drops or...

    It may be compatible with oval rails but have you made sure it was compatible with the larger diameter rails that come on most carbon saddles?

    I wouldn't think the plastic riser accessory from a trainer would have a deep enough cutout to keep your bike upright, plus you'd be putting a lot of sideways strain on your front well even if it...

    You are correct. I wrote it that way because the OP said he just bought his first road bike and I wanted him to be able to understand what I was saying - I was afraid throwing the axle into the...

    It sounds like the skewer wasn't seated all the way in your dropouts when you tightened it. If one side wasn't seated then it would make the wheel off center causing it to hit one side of the brake....

    FWIW, I recently switched to a 11-23 11 speed cassette with a 53/36 Dura Ace 9000 crankset. Seems to be working very well for where I live (Middle Tennessee with shorter, steeper hills).

    Thanks for all the input. I've decided to go with the S3. I know it's a great bike and will perform how I want it to, and there are too many unknowns about what improvements will actually be felt...

    Thanks for the insight. I'm not worried as much about comfort as handling, stiffness/climbing, cornering, and being as aero as it can. I guess the ultimate question is did they close the gap that...

    Great feedback. I was afraid the S3 or S5 wouldn't be as stiff. I'm okay with the weight penalty I'm going to pay when switching. Thanks!

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. It definitely makes me lean towards the S5. I'm on a Supersix Evo Hi-mod now, and I haven't had a problem with the stiffness or ride quality of that bike on long...

    Help - Cervelo S3 or S5?

    I'm trying to decide between the new S3 and the new S5. I know people that have the S3 and love it (confirmed by many reviews I've read). New S5 looks awesome, but since it won't be out until...

    I would agree widening your handlebars helps some with bike control. From a fit standpoint, wider bars will bring you closer to the bars (your hands are spread out more) so if you want to keep the...

    What was your rationale to shorten the stem by half? That will drastically change the way the bike feels - both how it handles and how you feel riding it.

    As far as parts where you don't tell...
