    How much more aggressive are the AR frames vs the F frames?

    Are the AR frames more for time-trial stuff? Or just for road racers who want to be more aero?

    re: batteries to run the electronics... if it's not already, couldn't it be a regenerating thing, where the pedal/wheel motion recharges them?

    yah, most things are already out there, but just wondering if they'll be the norm in roadbikeland.

    Spokeless, not sure. I don't mean full disc solid discs. I know there have been carbon blades,...
  11. Road bike technology... what do you think will change in the next 10 years?

    (not fads, but legitimate technological changes/evolutions/revolutions that will become the norm...)

    Lighter, stronger, stiffer carbon?
    Spokeless wheels?
    Electronic shifting?
    Goodbye cables? ...

    I have a serious crush on the Felt F5. I haven't had a legitimate road bike since the late 80's (Trek 660 with Shimano 600, if you can call that legitimate!), and I'm gonna get myself an F5 before...

    Thanks, Dunbar. Roger that. I've added a little prologue to my first post.

    But I do like the responses of late. The crank argument is interesting. And cranky.

    The longer the thread gets, the less people read, and the assumption is that I'm still hell-bent on upgrading my perfectly good 105 bike to an Ultegra machine, and costs be damned.

    But it's...

    All great responses, thanks.

    I have a feeling the F5's stock components will serve me well for a while. Spring can't come soon enough.

    NOTE: I did see that the F5's crankset is not Shim 105, if that matters.

    Crankset: FSA Omega/FSA 50/34T with BB30

    Thanks, all...

    This is a purely research-project kind of post.

    I'm probably going to get a Felt F5 come spring, which comes with 105 components. (I think it used to come with SRAM Rival, maybe...
  21. Going from 105 to Ultegra... what bits would you upgrade? SOLVED! NONE!

    NOTE: Excellent responses, everyone... I'll keep what I have! You've swayed me with rational arguments and elegant discourse. But read the thread. It's good eatin'!

    If you have a bike with 105...

    I have SPD's on my fixed-gear Surly Steamroller, with Exustar SRT707 shoes (the old-school lace ups), and I love them. But it's a commuter setup, and I do a lot of walking.

    Ya, Schwinn LeTour, Soma, all fine... I'm cool with hearing about alternatives, as long as the recommendations come with some info, and not just "THIS BRAND!" (I don't mean to be snotty about it at...
  25. Surly Pacer... Good all-around steel frame? Show me some builds!

    Haven't had a true road frame for 20 years. Had a Trek 660 back in the day (crashed and bent after owning it a week!); and then a Ritchie MTB (that I still ride when necessary); and most currently, a...
