I think I'll ask and find out how much and where and if the price is better that's where I'll go to purchase them.

And this is a forum where people buy bikes and bike parts and because this is a forum there are those who wish to purchase items they read about on this forum which in turn will beg the "rude" line of questioning. If the poster that bought the wheels is uncomfortable about disclosing the price and or place where he got them publicly for all to see then he can always private message the asker.

I hope that clears up the reason for asking such a question.

Now if I was to meet a stranger on the street with those wheels or some other thing I wouldn't ask what he paid because that could be considered rude depending on the person, I may ask where did he get them and then I can find out the price by going online.

Exactly!! Thank you.

I haven't bought this nor will I but I saw this and said "dang, thats sweet. maybe someone here might be interested" Nashbar has the Ciocc San Cristobal frame on sale, it's a beauty, see: Ciocc San Cristobal Frameset

By the way that Ciocc uses Columbus SL Niobium tubeset which Nashbar failed to mention.

Just got it last Friday. PI Fitting is comparable to American clothing (vs Italian). Although it says form fit, it has enough room to layer up with a thicker base layer (i.e. PI Thermal Zip Neck LS) and would probably work between 20-30 with that combo since it has a windproof material. I wear a SMALL. Comparatively, a SMALL in DeMarchi or Giordana jacket only has room for a tight fitting base layer and I could only use a UnderArmour HeatGear compression on them.

I also think Pearl Izumi might be easy to find at the local bike shop so you could try on sizes before committing. I know, we should support our local bike shop. Well, with the fact that I have purchased 4 jerseys, a pair of elite barrier tights, softshell jacket and 3 pairs of shorts from them plus a bunch of stuff for my wife and 3 taillights, I think I have supported them enough not to feel too guilty ordering some things online.

I hope you get it all worked out. I really love my cycling clothes and I think the fact that I feel more connected to the cycling community helps also to motivate me to ride more.

Thanks, Frank. I'm going to look for something from PI--have never tried them before. Gore is definitely out--at least until I weight 190 or less.

When I weighed a lot more (185 as opposed to 135 now) I tried lots and lots of clothing brands. The most forgiving ones, I found, were Castelli, Capo, and Hincapie.

Can you post a side picture? Also, what size frame is that? That's a bike I'm considering. Thank you.

I think that the frame size is a "holy ****, you're tall."

I tested it out today and it works great.

is that the k-edge? If so, it does work great. I love how you can turn it and it noticeably clicks and locks in.

bmcphx 03-16-15 07:16 PM

Why this over a k edge?

Because they were already shipping me some stuff and that made it cheaper than the k-edge. No other reason.

Wait do they make K-Edge Garmin/GoPro mounts?

They do! Hell yeah, I'm gonna get one of those!

bmcphx 03-17-15 05:01 AM

Yeah it's just an add on piece

:roflmao2:Close to 6'4", 36" inseam. . .62cm (either xxxl or xxl in Focus sizing, depending on model year). Here's the side view.

See above.

^Thank you. I'm also 6'4". I normally ride a 58 though.

Nice bike.

Nice to see there are others out there but it sounds like you're a bit more well proportioned. I'm 6'3" with a 36" inseam.


I had been riding a 62cm Scott S50, but just replaced it this weekend with a 60cm Trek Madone 4.3. Need to pick up a new set of pedals since my current ones are pretty beat, but otherwise it's ready to go.

Picked up a Bontrager Paradigm R saddle. Actually like the fit. I have been trying a few saddles lately to replace my very worn Specialized Alias 143 (Love it, but the stitching is worn off and its just beat up). I didn't care for the Bontrager RL saddle (though it was a 138, and too narrow for me). It was a bit too solid for me I think. I also tried a Terry Fly TI Gel, way huge saddle with tons of padding, but very wrong fit for me. Felt bad right away. I think I have an abnormal fit because that saddle gets great reviews but was way off. I think I have wide sit bones.

Anyway.. i think the Paradigm R is a candidate at least.

Also, trying some Cinelli Gel AVS Pads under my new handlebra leather bar tape.

Never tried arm warmers before, we'll see how I like them.
