Just ordered these for new Felt F4 and also have a set of 6800 pedals on the way. Will give the Prologo saddle a try but most likely will buy another Kurve Snake as well.
Bars are SLC2's

well.........after four years of being without a car (my wife and I would share hers) I've been commuting exclusively on motorcycles. Took up cycling a few months ago, and tho my wife was a good sport about me always asking to use her car to take my bicycle to the trail, PLUS have a bike rack always on it.

I bought this...............it's a fun little car too. GOt a great deal as it was a leftover!

Shimano A600 SPD and a pair of Shimano Selected Road shoe.

It is, I got one without the side stripe. Fiat brought in way too many abarths late in 13, now they're selling them at huge discounts (anywhere from 5-8K off msrp)

2003 Fuji Roubaix Pro 54cm frameset off of Craigslist. I'm still debating on Sora/Tiagra/105, but 105 is currently winning the debate in my head even though I purchased it with Sora in mind for it.

mmm yes, finally pulled the trigger on the Vuelta Corsa Lite road wheelset, with their 20% off special today it came in at only $190 shipped to my door, for a sub-1600 gram wheelset. I hope I can feel a noticeable difference dropping over 500 grams rotating weight from my bike's original wheelset.

40 bucks no tax for 2 Michelin Pro 4 Tires
Got to love Bike Swaps. Thank you Skagit Cycle Center.

I'm really happy with my Vuelta Corsa Pro wheelset.

hm those are bit different than the Corsa Lites, the Lites being even lighter. Both are extremely highly rated on Nashbar. :)

My bike's stock Mavic CXP22's weighed in on my scale at 2,093g including the rim tape, slightly heavier than the Corsa Pro's.

The Corsa Lites are said to be 1,578g for the set.

I can spin the wheel go make a sandwhich, take a nap, watch a movie, and go back to the bike and it will still be spinning.*

lol sounds awesome! Man I can't wait. Would love to see me start breaking some 15 MPH averages with these, though I'm not getting my hopes up TOO much. Previous best average with a tail wind is 14.7 I think. Yes I'm that slow.

Over the weekend I bought all the pieces necessary for Ultegra DI2 for my Roubaix SL3 off of ebay. Ended up spending a whopping $625 by the time it was all said and done.

I had similar, probably the same, wheels on my 2011 F5 and the move to lighter wheels was a big treat, especially climbing. Makes the bike a whole lot more enjoyable :thumb:

Yeah, I have over $600 in shopping carts waiting for me to hit the button, but I don't have over $600 in my bank account so it's a no go at this time. Luckily, I did a bunch of tax returns over the weekend so once my clients pay me I can get my orders in! I just hope Nashbar and Ribble are running sales when I finally pull the trigger.

Still running my corsa lites (not super lites mind you) when I weighed them on my digital hanging scale, they came in at 1520 grams with rim tape. Not too shabby for $200. First thing you should do is peel off the stickers though. Silly stuff and if you don't do it yourself, it'll start peeling and tearing all by itself.

Just bought a new track bike and crankset...not really road related, but cycling related.

Went in to see if the local shop had the glasses I'm looking for (to try on) and found this on the clearance rack:

Long sleeve T with the following on the front:

2003 Fuji Roubaix Pro 54cm frameset off of Craigslist. I'm still debating on Sora/Tiagra/105, but 105 is currently winning the debate in my head even though I purchased it with Sora in mind for it.

The 105 is clearly a better group, it's considered the workhorse group. I tried all the groups from Sora on up to Dura Ace before I got 105. In my opinion 105 felt better and activated smoother and faster then Sora or Tiagra; felt about the same as Ultegra except the rear shifting was a tad quicker on the Ultegra but the only real measurable difference between the two is weight and price; and Dura Ace was a tad nicer but so slight it didn't warrant the expense unless your a weight weenie and need to shed weight. So when I ordered my Lynskey I kept the 105 components and made one swap, I swapped the 105 rear derailleur to Ultegra and now it feels the same as an all Ultegra ride!

Cost difference from Sora to 105 is not a whole lot, but it is going to Ultegra. Tiagra is a very reliable group whereas the Sora is the odd duck out, it's a lower quality component package you can feel quickly and won't last as long. You need to test ride bikes with the 3 groups and see for yourself which one is the best, if you can't tell or don't care then get the lowest costing one.
