    I am 90kg and test rode an Emonda SL8 and Tarmac SL4 Comp back to back. The Tarmac was definitely stiffer...to the point that it rattled a bit too much for my taste on rougher pavement. The Emonda...

    Whole wheat English muffin split in half, with two turkey sausage patties, and Swiss cheese. Maybe 6oz of milk if I am eating more than an hour before the ride.

    According to Trek's website and the guys at the local shop where I test rode an SL8, the only difference between the SL6 and SL8 is the jump from Ultegra to Dura Ace and the different paint scheme. ...

    I have a guy from one of the shops looking around for one for me. I don't care much for that red scheme either. If you don't mind me asking, what did that wheel upgrade cost?

    I have a triple (53/39/30 and 12-25) on my current bike, and I always seem to have to tweak and play with it a bit after I have a tune up to get it back to shifting somewhat smoothly...

    I typically ride 2-3 hours when I am out on the road, but depending on time of year and what I am training for, 4-5 hours isn't terribly uncommon. I know I am going to be sore after a 4-5 hour ride...

    The Keiser power readout is based on the "gear" setting and can be recalibrated with a simple combination of lever moves and pedaling. Unfortunately, that leads to a lot of variability between...
