    True but I still think you can get decent Fulcrum or Mavic for $500 and then there is used wheel option. Spending $1000 on wheels if you are not racing seems like overkill to me and spending $1000...

    Yes it's overkill. I bought Vuelata Corsa Lite wheels for $220 new and they are about 1570g. There are a lot of nice wheels for under $500.

    I've been evaluating several options (including selling this bike and buying a steel bike with brifters). But I like this bike and like projects. I definitely want to convert to 10 speed because I...

    I've been led to believe that 8,9 or 10 speed brifters won't play well with the 7 speed derailleur because the spacing is different. I actually started out looking for 7 speed RSX brifters but the...

    Saw 4 of them this morning. One stood about 2 inches away and was sniffing me while I was slowly pushing up the backside of trash truck hill. Last year it seemed like I saw one every 4-5 rides and...

    Doesn't need to be new but shopping around for used older 8,9 or 10 speed groups it seems like it will be hard to get full group with cassette and chain for much less than the $400 for new 105
