Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Any news on new 2006 CARBON BIKES?? :|

Does anyone have any juicy gossip or concrete info on the new 2006 road bikes from the various manufacturers?
Any links or other tidbits? How about names of brand new manufacturers no one has heard of yet?

Or how about brand names no one has ever considered but will now because of new products?
And how about components?

What are some new cool components coming out this year that will make your bike just shine?
The new mavic ksyrium ES wheelset with the ultra cool black flat bladed spokes comes to mind.
I JUST LOVE THOSE!

there will always be haters out there who don't like "something" and put down the people who buy that "something". Can you get a better wheel from a small time wheelbuilder for significantly less?, maybe, but Mavic is just so damn big and everywhere aside from the fact their reputation precedes them.
I've been abusing the SL for a few months now and can't really say anything bad about the wheels. You can use price point as an argument, but then again we're talking about target consumers that's willing to spend a few thousand dollars on a bicycle.

Thats what I thought.

Those wheels are just too cool both the sl and the new es. And ya not all the target audience is rich either. Just fanatical. I'm fairly poor but I'm willing to save up for the mavic wheels. I won't settle for anything else. :|
