    The QR doesn't hold very well... It's a lightweight titanium skewer (the pair weigh about 46 grams). I am going to try the Easton skewer tonight and see if it holds better.

    Saddle time... Get your butt used to 5 to 8 hours. You have more than enough time. Go compact on the cranks... You will not run out of gears on the "tall" end, but might run out of "short" gears.

    I ran my 510 a couple weeks ago to 14 hours on a 200+ miler (yes, I had hills in there.... And yes, I am slow!). When I plugged in to upload, it was at 19%.

    When upright, the wheel sits left (non-drive side). Meaning my wheel is closer to the left brake pad.

    By "play," I mean with the quick release open, I can wiggle the wheel in the dropouts.

    BTW, my current road bikes are on 1) Easton EA 90 Aero (claimed 1545g) and 2) Reynolds Stratus Pro (claimed 1445g). I ride hard and often. The Eastons have about 1500 miles and are true as can be. ...

    persoannlly, I feel a 200 to 300 gram drop on wheels... below that, its hard to really notice. If you are in the mid-1800's, there are a TON of good 1500'ish wheels out there, often on the...

    gear down... I ride a TON of hills, and I run compact up front with 11/28 in the back (10 speed) except on my TT. I find I spend a fair amount of time in my shorest gears and RARELY use my tallest...
  12. Rear dropout wear; "alignment" concerns

    I recently noticed the rear tire wont sit straight in my Rocky Mountain Prestige. Its not so far out as to cause functional problems, but bothers me nonetheless. I flipped the wheel to ensure it...

    I am consistently 10% faster on my TT vs. my road bike. if I hold 20 on my road, I hold 22 on my TT for a given set of conditions and course. I have much fewer miles on my TT (about 1000) vs. my...

    Love the specs... Never heard of them before... Can a typical wheel tech repair? The spoke, hub and bearing tech is interesting.
