Its amazing how many 5 star reviews people never even rode them. They just go on and on how they look. Obviously they don’t realize the death trap they just installed on their bike. Anyways, the true cyclist, give it one stars and all experienced catastrophe failure.

You can get pretty much any fit you want, fairly light with alloy. You don't have to worry about overtorquing them or scratching them. Or smashing them into cars, etc.

I can break that habit.

I don't even know what that is.

The straight six is one of my favorite engines ever. Pure jewelry.

FWIW on my old bike I rode a carbon fiber seat post for 15 years without incident.

console yourself that the e-type will be much, much higher maintenance than your wife.

Oooh, I love the look of the new Bauhaus vinyl.

Even the @Velo Vol approved format looks good.

Not so sure about the cover of In the Flat Field.

I wouldn't buy a cassette today (we're in the digital age, obv.), but it does beat a record.

Not to worry. The cover art for the Lugosi Session is family friendly vintage goth Xerox of a Xerox motif :)

Actually, that might be the poster that comes with it, hard to tell from product descriptions.

I used standard Jagwire 5mm brake housing. I don't think that caliper has any special needs.

I've got carbon posts and carbon bars. None of them were purchased without provenance.

Saw one for sale on line the other day. Looked pretty beat up but there was something weird about it I couldn't figure out until I read the text, He had chopped the top, but only in the front and there was no glass in it. Also, it had a small block Chevy installed but didn't look completed. It made me feel sad (a little).

Found it and it is chopped in the rear, too.

if I put my bontrager wheel on the cervelo to test out the wheel theory, would it matter that the rotor on the bontrager wheel is sram? I would not touch the brake. I could tell in a matter of seconds whether or not the rub was there.

Seems like it would work if the rotor is the same diameter and position.
