    I just wish somebody would make a 12-27 or 12-28 11-speed cassette that didn't cost an arm and a leg and half my teeth like the Dura-Ace one. The 11-tooth cog is pretty worthless to me.

    After reading most of this thread, I thought I'd gotten into the Racing forum.

    If you are racing, eat, eat, eat. I've seen too many pros forget to eat and it costs them.

    I got a new chain and some celeste bartape for my Bianchi San Jose. New chain is much quieter than the old one. Went on a 41 mile ride in the country. Tried to climb Merrill Mt. but it was double...

    I really wish Shimano would sell an Ultegra or 105 cassette without the 11T and put another gear into the middle. The Dura-Ace 12-28 is a bit pricey for me.

    That's one. As in the Trek FX or the Giant Fast Road.

    Another is road wheels with fatter tires, flat bars and a front suspension fork; like the Trek Verve or Giant Cypress.

    A bit more comfortable on the Domane than the Orbea, no loss in speed. Nothing earth shattering either way, probably the placebo effect telling me all that cash I spent on the Domane was worth it. ...
