    I use both Speedplay Zero and Shimano SPD (M770 XT) pedals and I would recommend SPD pedals for you. You are correct that Speedplay pedals require some maintenance like re-greasing them every few...

    I've used the Conti (carbon specific) tubular glue in a pinch and I hated it! I always go back to Vittoria Mastik'One.

    I was riding with a buddy of mine who got a tiny puncture from a sharp stone (slow leak) and we used pit-stop and it worked really well.

    There are plenty of people on here who are not "rich" that can justify buying a bike that is, perhaps in someone else's eyes, more than they "need".

    Who is to judge how people spend their money?...
