    I always used XTR on my mtb's then thought I'd go for the X.0 drivetrain and will not go back now. The gears do just snap right into place. Just how they should.

    I'm pretty new to road riding but from what you're saying weight is the most important thing in a set of wheels, is this right.

    I don't have this happen but my riding buddy does. If he drinks Red Bull he starts shaking and going red. He can't drink coffee either. Tes and cider are good for him though.

    This sounds great for me as I attempted a century on 31 Jan only to have a slip on black ice after 15 miles. Only did 75 miles total. I'm going to try again this weekend. Hopefully it won't snow.

    I wanted to do it this year but only managed 75 miles on 31 Jan. Came off a couple of times after 15 miles on black ice. Got very bad pains in my legs and hips. Still not back to full fitness.

    Oh mate I've just googled Santa Cruz Mountains and they are great. I'd love to live somewhere like that.
