No thanks. I know what the Habanero needs. It needs a SRAM Force ETap AXS drivetrain.

So do it up! No better time than the pre- ...oh wait.

Oh, yeah, there should be. Anything over $800 USD is subject. I think that some things still sneak through, but a box big enough for a bike might raise some flags.

Indeed, I made the mistake of clicking on that No. 22 link posted up yesterday. For about 2 minutes a shopping cart with an $8,000+ bike in it. And I am neither an old man nor a dentist.

The answer is to have one of each.

And even though they call it “endurance” geometry, stack and reach are within mms of my old S1.

Hrm...

Same. I have the old part down, but pulling the trigger on 8K worth of bike, is not an easy thing to do.

In other news, I'm now getting spam offers to buy face masks. Does that move the needle, WhyFi ?

You've probably seen the Cervelo closeout deals at Excel. There's usually some wiggle room there too. I'd buy one of those before ti.

I'd rather be old. Oops, did I say that out loud?

When I told mine about that demo R5 Disc at Excel, asked "well do you want it?".

@BillyD.
Well now it makes sense. I was posting in a closed thread. Nevermind.

What's the skinny on HRV? I downloaded an app, paired with my HRM, did a few readings and got some figures (44bpm, 65hrv). Now what?

I didn't exactly let it load images or click through.

I'm having second thoughts about buying a carbon bike after clicking on the 2008 Specialize thread. I learned that carbon is not recommended because it breaks after being hit by several busses.

WhyFi 04-02-20 12:49 PM

So, R7020 levers, Praxis crankset, hammered fenders... :innocent:


:p
