Build up your Hed C2 with White Industries hubs and cool double butted spokes?
Ritchey - cool name, cool products, sure. I have a set of Ritchey mountain wheels. After some many...
Front doesn't wear out fast enough now - here in SLO there aren't practice crits 2x/week; roads are straighter; fewer hills, less steep - so front to back, new on front.
Rear tire wears fast.
GP4000S II have been out for a while and chatted up on many forums as well.
I've the 25s on my "all day" bike; they're ok
You'll figure it out.
What's with the hair? ...woooow
One of the shop owners here in SLO says the gf01 is the best bike he's ever ridden, and I believe. He rides one setup with Red.
He had me...
at first glance, ha-ha
10% to children's charities, hmm..., thanks grafsk8er
My GTR has screws in the battery mounts - no doubt that's what they are, check the spacing - however, the frame didn't come with screws for the bottles.

Samoa Cookhouse, yeah!
Purty woods, yaeh!
CSU puts a speck of Progressive in the northern wasteland, yeah!
Purty beaches, yeah!
Go visit for a few weeks first.
Perhaps I could get used to the shape and size of the Shimano equipment - not finding out, went with SRAM, again, Force this time.
What I saved vs other choices all went to wheels, again. I don't...
Very curious am I regarding your impressions; I'm waiting on the GTR model frame now.
Not here pal
Since this is the "33"
First, me ol' stomping grounds, Chico, where there's a few things to do, and it's somewhat of island in the rightwing conservative landscape...
My new bike - waiting on the wheels and frame - is 10s to match my #1 .
Oh yeah, why I'm posting: I believe a set of brifters will last more than a few years.
Granted that they...
Ride 'em both, listen to your mind, heart, and other parts.
I bought a Soloist (aluminum precursor to the S2) five years ago, which developed a crack last year; Cervelo replaced it with the 2013...
Uh-oh, more notes plz Mo'art!
I was on a five year plan, uhm, three years later, it's still five years - the long term is to be nationally ranked when I age up to 70, a long time from now.
Me bought a box o' hundred 16mm patches an' a large tube o' glue!
Ah, you got me; am I a cheap sob? Yesh!
The tinier patches (16mm vs 25mm) are best, imo, for almost all bike tube repairs - less prep, less glue, easier and faster.
Once a tube has proven itself, I'd rather patch and use it again....
There's a 2013 Gran Turismo sitting at the lbs, too bad it's not my size - fitted with SRAM Force as well.
For 2014, there's two models; seems the GTS is/will be available in the States, and the...
San Marco Aspide Arrowhead "gelaround" in 130 - it fits me.
The particular model was discontinued, so, thanks to Nashbar, I've some spares.
When the spares wear out, then it'll be time to...
1st bike - read, read, test, repeat (many times), like, buy, ride!
next bikes - read, look, sometimes test, repeat (a few times), sigh ...just can't get what I want in a complete bike, fine. Spec,...
Wider, me too, C2+WI T11 for the new allday bike; the EA90SL wheels are still rolling on the #1 bike almost five years later, go go go.
Picking bars for the new ride, not as easy as pedals (same) or seat (same, and already in my garage, bought two on Nashbar last year, one to replace a worn out, t'other for new ride ...someday), but...
San Marco gelaround Aspide
At about 30K, wondered if new one would feel different (I'd ratholed two, from Nashbar); it did.
The 30K one's not bad, however, the new one feels better.
From SLO, put highway 1 north as far as Cambria (north of there the road has been roughened, yuck) on your list; it's a classic. Add 46 for out&back with some vert.
Los Osos Valley Road, O'Connor...
