    An update to my post on Friday. Took my bike to the LBS and they fixed the spoke - total cost, $28. I haven't had a chance to try out the wheel yet though - had to drive in today.

    Heard a twang sound on my ride to office, stopped and looked around. Didn't see anything, but decided that it was a piece of debris flying off. Also noticed that tire pressure was quite low....

    My friend saw a 2011 Roubaix for about $1400 at his LBS. He is on leave this week, I'll ask him the name of the LBS when he comes in next week. I just know that the shop is somewhere in the South Bay.

    I have the same bar ends. I wrapped them with a cut up tube and then covered with insulating tape. Works quite well, I will get proper bar tape when this wears out.
