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

The KCNC is just too much
I am actually considering both of those. The Fibre-lytes just don't seem like a reliable choice, and I am not sure if the red F&N would look good or not. If it matches good then I agree, I think it would look good, but chances are it's probably a different red, and might look dumb then. I wish they made them in all black, and I would be all over it.

Agree with you on both fronts.

another option are the Tune rings...more durable than fiber-lytes (pretty much anything is) https://fairwheelbikes.com/tune-alumi...gs-p-3061.html

either way, i absolutely love your bike

Thanks. BTW the F&N rings aren't real heavy. 34.2grams/86.1grams They are quite stiff apparently.

I've always had good luck with the standard KCNC rings, that might be an option too.

Man that is Sharp! The blue/white contrast really grabs the eye and makes the bike stand out.

I have heard many a good things about the C24 Dura-Ace wheelset. I know they are slightly more heavy than its competition, but the hubs are more than supposed to make for it. How do you like them?

I scored a great deal on eBay for them, so I can't complain. I'm not sure what wheels you're comparing them to, but the weight difference is probably negligible and the lightweight rims make these feel incredibly light. The hubs are buttery smooth and combined with latex tubes, the ride is incredibly smooth, even over less-than-ideal road surfaces.

Sometimes I worry about what will happen if I total one of the rims, but they've held up well so far. If I had to do it again, I'd probably go for a set of handbuilts on HED C2 rims with nice hubs like the Alchemy ELF/ORC or King R45, but either way, my wheels aren't what's holding me back.

I know "big frame" bikes never look as hot as normal size bikes, but here's the current state of my ride...

My 2003 Bianchi San Lorenzo. Full Shimano (gasp!) Dura Ace except for the 105 compact crank. FSA RD 600 wheels, the center flange is neat and haven't had any of the problems others have had with them (creaking or having them NEVER stay true). Fizik Arione saddle, Look Keo pedals, Easton EC90 carbon fork, carbon cages, etc. I love it all. What do you all think?

Yeah. From old dude talking, I still cant like the looks of fat carbon rims. I understand its all about the grams and not the looks; but Im just a looker and that Cdale looks damned fine in my eyes minus the fat Eastons.

Why a triple crank?

A few different reasons. 52x11 is 124 vs 119 gear inches of a 50x11. I ride with a tandem a fair amount and on long descents I don't spin out as fast. Same when riding with taller cyclists hammering in 53x11. Having used 50, 52, 53 outer rings I actually like the ratio of the 52 the best. The bike came with 52/36 11-28 which I used for several months before changing over.

Most climbs I use the 39 with an 11-26 cassette. For extended 12% and up I'll switch to the 30. 52/39/30 11-26 is about the same as 50-34 11-26 with one higher and one lower gear. I also don't have to shift as much as I would with a 50/34 setup. The 6703 Ultegra shifts fast, really fast. Much better up front than 2008 Chorus with a compact which I had on my Pedal Force frame.

It works for me.
