    I'll put a vote in for the Chrome bag. I've been using a Chrome Metropolis for about 3 years - fantastic bag, and I'd never go back to a backpack. Never had any issues with it sliding around, and...

    You can use a wipperman masterlink on it. I'm not sure about the wisdom of using your current link again on a new chain (if that's what you were asking). I'd expect the masterlink wears at a similar...

    I went down a size on my CR1, mostly because of the reasons you mention. I'm 6', 33.5" cycling inseam, went with a L/56cm. Most of the shops locally were trying to put me on an XL, but it just didn't...

    Looks really nice.

    That front brake pad alignment looks a bit out of whack.

    rousseau - the wear you're seeing sounds perfectly normal. My rear tyre starts showing a noticeable flattening in profile after about 1500 miles, but I normally get about 2500 miles before replacing...

    Campy Xenon 10 speed

    I'd go for Xenon if only because it makes it easy to upgrade bits and pieces as you go, since I think the whole Campy range is now compatible. To me, the hoods are more comfy...

    700x23 no problem. Just keep the pressure up to avoid pinch flats - I'm not far off your weight, and run at about 125psi rear / 115psi front.

    I put a WCS Compact crank on in 2005. Very happy with it - stiffer than the 105 it replaced, and works well with the 105 drivetrain on that bike. All the other options at the time required a new...

    You won't lose much on the top end. At 120RPM on 700x23 tyres, 52:12 will take you 40.7MPH and 50:12 will take you 39.1MPH. I was cruising down a hill on the weekend at over 42MPH with 50:12.
