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

My new build.

Will they mesh well with the Dura-Ace levers?
They have the same basic ramp profile as the Deda 215 Ergo. They work well with both.

Just do your self a favor and put what ever is left over in a nice IRA account for when your joints don't work well enough to play video games or ride a bike any more.

Nice sounding build, if you've already got one italian running Shimano, might as well have two and be able to swap wheels between the two I suppose. By I've got to tell you, after holding my new Record crank, I doubt I'll ever buy any (new) Shimano gear.

/also not holding breath for pics

//going to go look up those bars mentioned above.

When I finally saw the Dura Ace crank in person, I liked it much better than in photos. I could live with it.

Doubtful. The money in videogaming is really terrible unless you're damn close to the best, or are the best. Apparently, this guy is. I've got friends who are up there, one of them takes home a few grand every summer playing counterstrike, the other was one of the best in the world at Painkiller for a time, and made a little $$$ before realizing a college degree would serve him better.

out of curiosity i googled "Inaugural Gamebattles.com SOCOM 3 Quick Sniping Tournament" and came up with zero hits. not one. so i went to http://www.gamebattles.com and clicked on the "Tounaments" link to find the one that awarded 50 large. alas, nothing. i looked at the other tournaments for SOCOM and other games, and the prizes are "Graphic awards" and various "XPs." now im not a gamer by any means, but i would think they would publicize a tournament like the one you described.

anyone? anyone?
