New tires for my commuter/foul weather bike

I purchased 21mm pedal extenders for my road bike. I normally wear regular shoes with half clips while riding, but I've had problems with my heel rubbing the chainstay. So far I'm not sure if it's helping or hurting more, I think I'm still having knee tracking and pain issues but atleast my heel isn't rubbing anymore.

This wasn't a purchase, it was a trade. I had a frameset, same brand, different year, both titanium frame. I got one in my size and traded away one too small for me.

Nice score. I had too many family things scheduled and couldn't make the Garage Sale.

Jakedatc 03-21-18 04:45 PM

Yep.. 2 of them now for less than full price of a non shield one. I only use the shield for Tri's but it is a nice option

Just got a box full of Ultegra R8050 Di2 goodies and a BBinfinite bottom bracket in the mail. Just waiting for a rear derailleur hanger, then I'll be in business.

I've seen a few reviews on them, but very few real world reviews.. so curious if it lives up to the hype. You should post a review for all of us lol

I had the original Giant TCX2 saddle

Went for 1h15m ride yesterday. Last ride before that was last December so my bums weren't accustomed to riding yet this year. Beside my saddle tilted a bit backward (I kept sliding back on the saddle), it was confortable and I felt no pain while and after riding. I did feel my sit bones more for the first few minutes of my ride but that feeling disappeared after that. I'm liking it so far. I'll ask my doctor for a PSA test in early Summer which will tell me if it's as gentle on the prostate as they say it is...

It's here, I've taken a couple quick rides. I really, really like it. Saddle did not agree with me so I have a new one coming. The only thing I do NOT like about it are the bars. They are really narrow gage. I will be replacing them with a wider gage carbon set. The frame is super shiny, I love the finish, and the seat stays up close are gorgeously swoopy. It's not nearly as harsh a ride as you would expect from a full on race rig either, and I'm not in as aggressive position as I am on my classic steel race frame. I'm low, but not super low. Which is good, because I intended this one to be my daily driver.


You cannot beat the price. My wife's company had a discount code, so I got it all in for $3082. Full Dura Ace, HED wheels and cockpit, 16.5 lbs which is pretty good for an aero frame.

Thank you for posting this! Unfortunately, they were out of stock of medium cats, so I got last months jersey!

I'm actually kinda digging the red! Very nice! Thank you for sharing!
