    The articles I read stated otherwise. FC's troubles started before the race did, with Devolder not starting. The curb hop/crash delay, headwinds, fast large group coming off the Arenberg......

    Zimco Air Plus Kits on Ebay: Reviews?

    They look good: affordable, all-white kit for short/medium rides. Full zipper jersey, bib shorts (that are not see-through, per the seller's listing.) Any opinions, as to quality, sizing, etc?

    Beautiful bike; congrats!

    I, too, am curious, as to the braking. I test rode a 2014 Roubaix disc (in caution yellow!) and nearly went over the handlebars, the first time I stopped...

    +1. You may want to decide after checking the forecasts for the days you have in mind. The ride could be truly miserable, regardless of the view, if its raining all day.

    I, too, don't like to stop, other than very briefly for water refills, unless the ride is very long, hot, or difficult. Not sure I'd call it groggy, but I do feel weaker after a lengthy break. There...

    Update. This morning, I moved both cleats back ~4mm then did a 4-hour ride, with lots of hard effort. I did sense less stress on the calves and developed a dull ache in my hamstrings and glutes....

    Not sure I follow; at the bottom of the pedal stroke, the toe should be above or below heel level?

    Thanks for the input, guys; will start nudging my cleats backwards immediately.
