    Rideaz - Very nice! I had a friend in this race (in a Jobing.com kit, but so was everyone...). It was great to see all of the women racers in both the cat 4 and cat 1-3 races.

    Step through is great until the time you don't get your left foot unclipped. Then it's not so great.

    Phoenix used to have a sanctioned tues or wed race that counted towards upgrades, etc. I think it was $5/night with two races a night. When the Underground Crit started that AZTR is talking about,...

    I agree, but you may want to e-mail the promoter just to be sure. A few small things like the seat and bars being too far forward are easily overlooked. A missing seat tube, not so much.

    What? No Snake Alley crit???

    Most of my races are in Phoenix (1.5 hrs) or Tucson (3.5 hrs). I've driven up to 5 hrs for a race, and it looks like I'll be hitting some of the CA races this year.

  18. Difference between Giant TCR Advanced SL 4 and TCR Advanced 1

    I'm trying to decide between the Giant TCR Advanced SL4 and the Giant TCR Advanced 1. The main differences I see are the carbon/composite process (overrated in my book) and the wheels (I have a set...

    Bingo.

    My thoughts are that "timed events", even when attended by pros and top racers, shouldn't count because it's not a USAC race. Sure, people are riding hard and most people are in a group but...

    I haven't met him. He's been racing as a 4, not sure if he'll be upgrading any time soon. He's mouthed off to several of my teammates who have talked to him, along with a lot of other people.
