    Also, the Zipp bars are the most comfortable bars EVAR.

    Ready to start doing my 26 mile commute on the bike tomorrow. Nothing like being short on money and gas to motivate me to HTFU and do this! It's about $4.40 per gallon here and I'm ready to take my turbo + awd gas guzzler off the streets.

    What I'm planning on pulling out of my next paycheck
    • Soma Highway 1 compact drops
    • Tektro ergo brake levers
    • New cables all around
    • Comfy brown bar tape (hopefully Charge U-Bend)
    • Dark brown Charge Spoon


    It isn't quite comfy yet. The drop is way too big and having those brake cables flailing around pisses me off.

    Not a fan of non-aero levers either, huh.

    I'll be putting some Charge U-bend tape on my singlespeed soon; I've always thought that dark brown tape is one of the nicest colors of bar tape.

    Is that internal cable routing? Neato.

    Yeah, I thought it was ironic they came with internal cable routing but non-aero levers. Kind of defeats the purpose lol.

    Thanks! There's all sorts of little nicks and scratches if you get up close but they don't seem to show up much in the pic Yeah, I'm pretty happy with it so far. The wheels are extremely soft. They're single walled aluminum 27" rims so any surface feels like a hard wood floor. I kind of want something with more response. Stock brakes were really good but I'm updating to dual pivot for a little more power and a more modern look. I couldn't be happier with the indexed Suntour a-3000 group. It shifts very quickly and smoothly! Weight is a bit heavy at 24.6 lbs. I think upgrading the heavy bars, seatpost, and wheelset would bring it a lot closer to 20 lbs. I wish I knew what a Technium frame weighed...

    Epic Schwinn: A Nitto Randonneur bar would look sweet on there. It's a comfy bar for the long haul.

    Hmmmm... Looks like it would be comfy but aesthetically (which, as we all know, is superior to comfort) I'm not a big fan. Kind of looks like a nitto noodle.

    The seat stays are integrated into the seat clamp? That's pretty interesting.

    Have you hit it with some frame saver yet?

    Not yet. Does it help on aluminum frames?

    My C&V road bike also has a similar integrated seat clamp. I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered it, as it was new to me too.

    Main triangle is aluminum, lugs and rear triangle are steel. The frame is glued together.

    It's just a little surface rust. I had the stem out and the headtube looks clean and without rust damage.

    "thermally bonded"

    Raleigh doesn't like to say they used these



    Kind of a double standard when people judge their integrity but probably wouldn't knock the same process on a Ti/Carbon lugged and bonded bike.

    I think the Technium was one of the successful bonded frames while a lot of the lugged carbon frames failed

    Picked up my first bike with gears since the grip shifts of my childhood. Craigslist steal.
