One thing is that the fresh factory grease in the hubs might be causing a bit of resistance, and will need to work its way out a bit over a few hundred miles. Your Zondas will go from nearly silent...

Wouldn't worry about it, paint virtually always chips on dropouts (or in this case, thru-axles). On the plus side, unlike a dropout, the thru-axle area there is confined, so I would just scrape off...

I think you're looking at it backwards. They aren't making normal margins on the frameset, and barely scraping by on the complete bike. Rather, they are making normal margins on the complete bike,...

As I always say to my wife, my road bike is for cycling, my hybrid is for biking...there's a difference!

It's nice to just fool around in the neighborhood sometimes.

If you want a pro tip on keeping the white bar tape clean, use Westley's (well, now Black Magic) Bleche White. It's available at any auto parts store, and it's made for white wall/white letter tires....

70mm stem for a guy 5'9" tells me something isn't right.

For reference, I'm 5'5" and ride an 80mm stem (on a 52cm bike that came with a 90cm stem), and it's just right.

5800 105 - Lost Three Gear Sweep from Smallest Cog?

1) Setup was really easy with the app, got my pages set up and I'm sandboxed between the device and the app which will do nicely. Can link and export to virtually any other app...
