    I like the general look of that Soma but as set up it looks like it's a size too small and the fit looks pretty awkward.

    That looks to be in about as good a condition as a bike that has been ridden can be. Like others have said it's impossible to tell just by looking if someone used a torque wrench on all the carbon...

    Depends on what it is. Baggy charity ride jerseys or team kit from another local team? Probably not.

    I have a decent collection of thrift store jerseys. Bibs, not so much.

    If you race cyclocross this is a no-brainer. Put tubulars on the cross bike first. That's an application where the benefits over tubes (no pinch flats) and tubeless (no burping) are very clear, and...

    Rudy Project Maya. The only style that would fit my funky prescription. Just clear lenses for now. I like them.

    I cheap out on a lot of stuff, but this didn't seem like the place to do that.

    The specs I found for the 1.1 say "Trek carbon road":

    1.1 - Trek Bicycle

    At this price point that means alloy dropouts and steerer tube.

    Nothing at all wrong aesthetically with the classic Flite shape. There are very few bikes it looks bad on, and that is not the problem with the Look. It's the steep seat tube angle + slammed forward...

    7800.

    Lighter. Plentiful and cheap on the gently used/NOS market. Good match aesthetically with the rest of the group now and will still look great later.

    It's not an "endurance" sport. It's all out intensity for a short period. That was the biggest adjustment for me coming from spending hours at a stretch on a road bike.

    Another one bites the dust.

    Shorty Ultimates are indeed fantastic. Not cheap, but worth it if you have the dough and/or a hookup.
