    This thread has huge potential; huge, I tell ya.

    OP, just buy that puppy (don't listen to the naysayers on here), all 7.5 lbs of it, slap some Albatross bars on it, and continue routinely riding...

    Well, yes ... for example, I have 32s on my Sirrus, but it is not a 2013 or 2014 full carbon one like yours. As I said, yours has a Specialized Roubaix frame ... that is an 'endurance' road frame...

    Not wrong at all. All else being equal, the slightly wider tire run at a correctly-set lower pressure will pick up fewer 'piercing' punctures. Same reason that it will have slightly lower rolling...

    You just need a bicycle floor pump -- that's it! Any LBS or sporting goods store carrying bikes should have 'em. Make sure you get one convertible to both Presta and Schraeder valves.

    As I mentioned, sounds to me that you have it about right for you, given your original post!

    Sounds about right to me. FWIW, I'm a relatively skinny little (5'9, 160lbs) old man; I set 32s at 75 front/67 rear (typically, 10% lower on front). 28s slightly higher (not much). I too base this...

    Well, that takes me back, LAJ! Buddies and I occasionally went out to Speedway back in the day -- the Empress, not so much!

    The great thing about Victoria to my mind is that unlike Vancouver/the...

    There are two main boat basins on the Inner Harbour; the north one off Wharf St., the southerly one off Government St. smack in front of the Empress.

    Ouch -- that hurt. The combination of rapier-like wit with clever verbal and visual imagery ... very droll. Oh well; in the interests of full disclosure, this is how "we" see "you":

    At the speeds pros climb, even on 6+ percent grades, there is an aero factor, though pretty minimal. That, however, is totally irrelevant to anyone posting on these boards or whom you are likely to...

    Yelling the F-word at a little girl on the MUP ... nicely done. She deserved it; why, had that not been effective you might even have had to stop and walk your bike past her/them. That is not...

    Re. your first point, don't know what more to say. As I said to FMOO7, if you hang around here long enough you'll see what I mean (or not; not a big deal).
