    Of course I don't have good bike handling skills. That's the whole point of why I avoid aero wheels. Simple case of "know thyself".

    Yeah, I took a chance on an ebay seller, and it turned out great. Built the rims up myself for under $500.

    Yeah, it was overcast today. Bright, but almost no direct sun. That made riding very pleasant.

    Just wondering how much climbing that includes. We ride just about the same average speed, but I suspect you lose something to hills, of which I experience none.

    That's just...uh...peachy. I hope you have laid in a good stock of Imodium. 25 POUNDS!

    Seriously, enjoy. My favorite fruit.

    Well, I think that the "New Wheels, Aero or Standard" thread is about to become verrrry interesting. Someone has tossed a few grenades. :innocent:

    You don't have to move the bar down. It is already far below what you quote. I just moved my personal bar for tubulars down to 998 g for low profile wheels and the standard for me for clinchers is...

    Why would that be hard for me to grasp considering I'm the one who suggested it. I offered the OP a choice. You want to go faster with your available power, and you ride at 20 or more mph, then by...

    What is the point here, that your pump gets 130 psi? That you ride at 130 psi?

    Any decent, no-name $20 floor pump from Nashbar or the like will get all the bike tire pressure you need with only...

    Funny I rode all three bikes this week, CF, Ti, and steel and couldn't tell a lick of difference among them. The weights are 13.3, 13.8, and 16.3 lb, respectively so I wouldn't expect very much...

    Good news. Thanks for sharing.

    I wholeheartedly agree about the Black Princes. They make my carbon wheels stop just like my alloy ones. It's uncanny how close the feel is. I'm talking about...

    OP, that's a very good question. Others have already posted the main things that DON'T matter. Now, how about what DOES matter.

    Do you like the aero look? That's a good reason to buy aero. Can...

    NO! NO! You can't do it before you can do it. Surely you don't want to be a stinkin' liar. Maybe if you say "almost", that would be okay.

    If indeed a troll, very interesting. Most likely yes. Uses bad English, abrupt language to make you wonder what is really meant. Like the one about hitting the girl, and is the bike okay. That was...

    Sorry, no offense, but downgrading the shifting would be totally back asswards. It is completely likely that FSA makes a replacement freehub body to convert the wheels to 11-speed. They might even...

    Can't help you, but you are really taunting the cycling gods with this thread. I mean Performance Ultras are your fav shorts of all times. You mention shorts and bibs as equivalent in the same...

    He's not insulting you, he's telling you how to judge your order against the general business type that these stores do. And BTW do you think the US Customs Service cares whether you think the order...

    I wonder for how long the shifting will be better on one when they are both put into regular service. Degradation in shifting sneaks up on you. It is likely that for most of the useful lifetime of...

    I'm glad so many folks find saddle nirvana in a Brooks. I also glad so many folks find saddle nirvana elsewhere. Funny how that works, isn't it? DSFDF

    No, you're using engineering to optimize the design in light of the material properties. The best aluminum is ridiculously close to carbon these days. Not equal, but very close.
