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?

My very first floor pump. Very nice and well done comparing to other brand names in the store. Plus you get lifetime warranty on it...you just can't go wrong.

I am not at home to look for sure but, I'm thinking they are the Al / Sc. I do know they are the DT Swiss. And if I recall the wheel set was 920.00

Have you tried the Antares VS saddle? If so, how does it differ from the Antares VSX?

Another battery powered compressor, digital pressure meter, just set it to the psi and it switches off when the correct pressure is reached.

Used Ultegra 11-25 cassette (to replace 12-25).
Heh, did it just in right time, before recent race.
I really needed it on downhill stretch with massive tailwind :)

After struggling with sweat issues and trying the Sweat Gutr headband for the past year without much success, I decided to try the Halo Protex skull cap. Should come in today or tomorrow, hoping it works better.

No,I have the old crap Bontrager saddle that came on my bike. The big difference between the VS and VSX is that the VSX has a 20mm deep pressure relief channel

Ibera Waterproof phonecase w/ adjusable stem-mount

Just got it in the mail this evening! installed the mount, and going to use it tomorrow.
Fits my HTC One perfectly, though the natural grippiness of the clear plastic makes removing the phone from the case a bit more difficult than putting it in. That being said, I think I've figured out how to get it out without as much effort.

It was also my b-day recently, and I got a hefty gift-card to Skiis and Biikes, so I did some shopping. Not going to list off every single thing though... :rolleyes:

I have a similar skull cap. Keep it pulled down in front all the way to your eyebrows. Works best that way. The sweat gutr works great for upright activities (running, mowing the lawn, etc) but not so much when leaning forward (I tried it too).

Repost and let us know how it works, because at least I would be interesting into getting one if it works.
