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

Well I bought these Bont vaypors and tried them on and they don't fit. Luckily another member from another forum had a bigger size for me, which I bought.

If anyone is interested in these Bont vaypors but in a size 43, PM me.

My new set

They are a limited edition and most likely sold out already. I ordered their yellow special edition 2 days after they came out and then got a message saying they were already out of stock in my size.

IB speed means nothing on a trainer.

It does in terms of base speed vs whatever speed you want to do. Speed is less important in real life where variables change all the time.

I like CAPO as well. I got the SIRIE A jersey and love them. Also got the matching long sleeves. Then I got their high end jersey (VOLTA) on clearance as well and it was freakin' amazing! I ended up getting a discounted MONVISO from Chainlove. I'm hooked.

Just bought some replacement spokes for my Vuelta Cora Pro wheels. Broke a front spoke yesterday at about mile 55 of 76. I also got a flat tire (unrelated) and rained on. Was a great ride.

Did you get the carbon hub or the alu/scandium one? and what did you pay for the wheelset if you don't mind?
