    I love a good 2 hr ride...30-40 miles. Those summer rides when everything is "just right"...yes, perfection. I've yet to find anything in this world that can calm me like that...

    Bingo.

    If you like the way things are/were...that is 100% acceptable. Refusing to look into new ideas is being closed minded.

    I welcome the idea of a flat bar yet more road position oriented...

    The exact same thing happened on my cousin's 2013 Domane. It started with a few blown out spokes and not after than, the rim gave way. He had them replaced under warranty, then landed up replacing...

    OP, I think its completely individual and 100% up to you. Do you feel like it is a fair amount?

    Putting aside that fact that here in Illinois...it's done nothing but rain for the past 6 weeks...

    Viral and slander advertising is real...and happens all of the time. Honestly, on forums like this (and others) the heavily involve hardware...there is going to be makers hiding among the masses.

    LOL...well, when that happens I'm normally up crap creek without a turd paddle. A few time (two that I can think of), I hit the wall so hard it was either stop riding or pass out, so I stopped and...

    I think you'd know if you were going that fast...because you'd be completely spun out at that point. The largest "normal" gear combo I can think of is a 53x11. At 45mph, you'd be spinning at 120rpm....

    This...when my legs are having enough, I'll spin more. When my lungs can't cut it, I'll take the spin down and grind more.

    On a longer climb of a harder nature, I'll normally have to go back and...

    I can only speak about the Tarmac, honestly. Looking at the $2500 (Elite) -vs- $3000 (comp) model...the only differences seems to be the 105--->Ultegra and the fulcrum S5 to S4 "upgrade". Same...

    Yup...LOL...and I paid the price for it. It was kind of a "slow, unclip R, stop, lean R" type of move set...and that wasn't a good idea.

    This was a big issue for me.

    First season on clipless? Never ate it once. Second? Fell three times the first month the weather was nice enough to ride.

    What did it turn out to be? My first...

    I spent my first road riding summer on a rather costly, borrowed Specialzed Roubaix. He was running SPD pedals and even lent me a pair of shoes. I did two rides with them and decided I needed to get...

    This here.

    When I was heavy, I used a CPAP. When I lost 100 lbs I figured I didn't need it anymore. Season of 2013...I had a great summer but come fall, the bottom fell out completely. I could...

    You know...great point...never thought of that part. Can you front shift at all with an oval chaining set? Seems like it would be horrible to attempt to set that up.

    Yeah...a magnet would not only make a distinct "click-click-click-click" sound while riding...it wouldn't make a smooth grind either.

    Try putting something sticky/greasy/whatever on that spot and go for a short ride. Ride as you normally would and then have a look. See if it rubs off on the wheel somewhere. (obviously clean it off...

    A 23 huh? Hmm...that shouldn't be rubbing at all. Even if you were a seriously heavy rider and running the tire at low pressure, it would bulge on contact, not at the chainstay.

    Picked up the Air Attack because I got it on the silly cheap from Chainlove for $80. Couldn't pass it up at that price.
