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

I saw an Ultegra crankset in all black today. It looks quite a bit better and less squidly in all black.

Such a bike calls for something like a Clavicula crank. That would get a perfect 10/10 to me.

I saw your pictures on the trainer, you are a big dude, athlete type with perfect body proportion for cycling, I can tell you will put some good usages into that crankset, $1200 is well worth it, I am sure it will make your already bad ass S2 even HOTTER.

The reason I said that was we had exchanged posts in another thread before, remember I was amazed by how tall your saddle is on your S2?
