    Agree as well. Heck, I bought a spare rear wheel just to use when my bike was on the trainer. I'd have no problem at all justifying a second set of wheels if I lived in an area where studded tires...

    I don't mind the splash tape, but the Bennotto tape looks really good on that Colnago, especially with the clips and straps (need to put the Silca pump back on too).
