I don't lust after any bike right now, thankfully I really like my Ridley, but If there were more money available than what we could spend, I'd have to buy a Speedwagen.

Never thought about torque specs before on my cleats, I just crank on em until I think, " yeah those ain't shifting", and then I crank a bit more.
