I admit I am a SRAMophile. I have previously had no interest in electronic shifting. Etap definitely has caught my interest.
Warm. Presents nicely except for cable insertion behind steerer tube, weird (to my taste) tube shapes and funky drops on the bars.
Wow! That's one tastefully hot rig.
I have never liked the look of bikes with shifter cables that insert into the top tube behind the stem... until now. HOT!
Tony Scott's "True Romance" is my favorite movie of all time.
I have eight or so used frames (aluminum, steel, carbon fiber) lying around. They range from 55 cm to 58 cm in size and are in good to excellent condition. If one might fit, it is yours for the price...
Kask Vertigo works great for me.
I bought a NOS Griffen frame about one year ago that had no chain stay cable stop. I got a cable stop from a frame builder, drilled holes in the stay and riveted/epoxied the stay in place after...
Kinesis Racelight Aithein is my recommendation. It compares very favorably with my Colnago Extreme Power. I have owned and ridden quite a number of higher end Al frames over the years and no other...
Tube, two plastic tire levers, patch kit, multi-tool, mini pump, cell phone, cash all carried in a sticky pod. Then, as many gels and chews as mileage dictates.

UAM cycles sells 60 mm deep full carbon clinchers on eBay through "Greenforce Pro". I bought a set for $560+$70 for shipping. They claim 1500 grams or so and that seems accurate. I've got a bit over...
I relieved my pain-in-the-neck with a timely divorce.
Once in Nebraska, the wind stopped blowing and everyone fell down.
Many years ago, fully loaded touring around Lake Erie on a very heavily used Motebecane Gran Touring, while descending at high speed, I reached for the brake levers and the right lever detached from...
IMHO, yes. I have no interest in electronic shifting. At one time, I had a Garmin 500 computer with cadence, HR, etc. Too much information that I never used. I've now got Cateye Strada wireless...
A couple of weeks ago, I rolled the dice on a set of 60 mm deep full carbon clinchers from an eBay seller from China, UAM cycles. $569 + $70 for shipping. I've never before ridden full carbon...
What does help is to clean your brake pads once a week or so with a flat file to remove any imbedded materials. It takes less than 5 minutes and keeps braking performance optimal.[/QUOTE]
