    What does it mean when its a different series of carbon? Isn't carbon chosen based on what characteristics it is designed to do on a frame? In other words, high modulus carbon is not suited for the...

    In your test riding, it seem like you stay with one brand. How would the emonda compare with Cervelo's RCA? Both are very light, both claim to climb well, and responsive,etc.

    Just don't let any kind of wind make a mental block to any ride. "Help, hurt" a ride. The tendency is to try to figure out what's the "truth" and then human nature always tends to the truth. ...

    Any bike will do for now. Its mostly the desire to ride. Don't over think it. In other words, no need to go through a strenuous "decision matrix" to say to yourself that you made a wise decision. ...
