    The problem with replacing the stem with one that's straight is that it would change your handlebar height (if you previously had an angled one).

    The one thing that people rarely mention when considering triples is that you can swap out the standard middle and top ring, which changes the argument of "a compact crank can cover 90% of the range...

    The shorty bars do also get used in draft legal triathlons, a lot of the ones for that purpose come with a bridge between the two extensions for safety. Mine don't have one so I bought a 3rd party...

    If you haven't already gotten one, a power meter is probably a better investment than disc wheels.

    I've never used 700x38 marathon pluses, but I've used 25,32 and 35mm ones, and I've found that they get a bit easier to mount as they get larger (although I did mount the 25's on a different rim).

    I've never tried it, but it's an interesting idea. I've always been tempted to get a 54T or higher so my gear steps would be smaller at the same speed.

    I also prefer having something less than 30T on the front. I had good luck with the exact same setup you did. (FSA crankset + 24T after market inner ring). The only thing I did different was that I...

    Aerobars are faster. How is that not a valid reason to use them?
