Don't forget clipless vs flat pedals
I've had that happen on both GP4000s and Gatorskins.
While I have done my share of sliding down the road, only once was it on dry pavement and I came out of that pretty well as it turned out (superman position yo).
All my others were on ice and while...
In 1979 I did a tour with a couple of buddies on our CB750's, from Edmonton to St. John's Nfld, to Boston and back. About 8000 miles. It was fun, but not something I ever plan to do again.
Judging from the source, not fluff at all.
As for why Mg? Well it is lighter than Al or Ti, so if you are shooting for a record of strength (or any other measure) to weight, it's a good choice.
About 4000 miles this year for me. Now that I work from home, the commute miles are way down.
I like expensive bikes. I'm also really cheap.
So whenever a great deal comes along on a really nice bike, I have to buy it.
Fortunately for my bank account, this doesn't happen all that often.
Cleaned it all up, took off the wheels and packed it for a trip to California (tomorrow).
Got some other things to do today, so I really need to stop scouting routes and reading bf.
How is this thread still going?

Oh man, I had to go back 5 pages to find out who started it all.
Congratulations, you win the internet for today.
I actually have a set of these wheels, so my opinion counts for more, right? :)
Compared to some of my other wheels (dura-ace 7800, bdop alloy kit) they are a bit heavier, but they are definitely...
Road disc wheels are becoming readily available, you should have no problem swapping wheels if you set up the spacers for the one bike.
Well, if you already have a bunch of wheels that you will be swapping then the rim brake model the way to go. That was my reason for choosing the TCX, although I think mine is a 2012 model.
Surely a more expensive seatpost is available? Anything else would be better looking.
In June, few years back, a buddy and I rode this double century over the Highwood Pass. We did it during the third week of June, and followed the route shown, except for starting and ending at my...
Agreed. Nice bike but it's a not because it's on the small chainring:)
Also, what are those black wing looking things behind the rear derailleur and above the rear brake?
Winter hit us here (finally) the other day. Roads are still covered in ice but the city is working hard to replace it with salt and grit.
Even so, the weather has been great for riding, especially...
But you will be required to take a pull eventually.
Usually happens when I'm OTB.
Better than not riding at all, I suppose, but it does speak to the legitimacy of your advice.
Personally, I love the look of the classic XA stem on my old steel bike, it is not stiff.
So it's ok to brake in the paceline as long as you have disc brakes?
You realize the number of pages you see is affected by your personal settings? For me, we're still on page 82.
