And make no less than three threads about the acquisition, building and review of the bike.
I'm pretty cool about it and it's never been an issue over the past two years. I routinely let people burrow my Dura Ace Di2 BMC GF01 and/or my Domane 6.9. Whether it's for a test ride (to help sell...
You'll need a battery, both junction boxes and all applicable e-tube wiring as well. Your frame manufacturer should have a guide (many do) on what lengths of e-tube cabling you'll need. Make sure you...
These two statements contradict themselves. Either you do have food issues, or you're not bonking.
I've been wearing these for two 'winter' seasons (Doesn't really get that cold in Sacramento)
PURSUIT Compression Socks by Swiftwick
Pretty thin, plenty comfy.
Trek Madone 2 1 Full Shimano Dura Ace 9001 Custom Build A Must Have | eBay
$3500 but pretty close. Didn't say you couldn't use eBay.
Components are substantially identical, except from frame material -
1679 - Trek Emonda ALR 5
2099 - Trek Emonda S5
1309 - Trek Emonda ALR4
1569 - Trek Emonda S4
$600 is what you pay for it from Felt, sure. I think what we're all trying to figure out is why a thread was necessary to somehow educate on us the fact that a CF bike costs more than an aluminum...
That the OP bought a Z85 and they're still on the fence of regret/faceless masses validation
One is a Z5, the other Z85.
Carbon and Aluminum.
Not terribly uncommon to have manufacturers spec almost identical components on their mid range aluminum bikes and low range carbon bikes.
I've got one in the fleet and it's definitely a fun bike. I picked it up on one of those... "too good to pass up" deals. My biggest gripe with it has been all the proprietary components on it. So...
Did you wave?
What was the weight of the final build?
Disc brakes, right...?
Seeing it's a Venge, make sure you ask for 20% more than you think it's worth.
78th post to get that SLR photo? Man, on vacation today?
It took one of our guys close to 4 hours to set one up the first time, sight unseen, with mechanical Ultegra. He's done several now and has gotten it down to about 2-2.5 hours. With Di2 it takes...
What rms13 said. The limited lifetime warranty for the original owner is one thing, the crash replacement program is different.
Limited Lifetime Warranty - It failed/broke because of something in...
We call it NBF (New Bike Fitness) in the shop. It's usually short lived but we'll smile and nod when tell how much better your new bike has made you out there.
Our shop has a labor warranty repair fee of $25 when significant component removal/re-installation/adjustment is required. There are many variables when that labor fee is charged and also when it's...

Those guys? They come in our shop once a while, pretty cool guys!
I waved to someone in the hallway at work today and then shouted "on your left."
Zwift island is absolutely real. In order for you to upload it to Strava they had to create the course based off a real place with elevation. It's Jarvis Island in the South Pacific.
It's all marketing and perspective. I try really hard to avoid using the language at the shop with customers, I'm a big fan of letting the bike ride/test ride do the talking. But inevitably customers...
Some of it depends on your level of disposal income. We sold an F8, SR EPS bike a few months back to an individual who paid in cash. He wanted another bike to keep the wear down on his SLR 10. We...
