Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Details will come out in December on our facebook page, not here (at least by me). I am not paying advertising here currently so doing the release on a thread here isn't the best idea.

Would be like if he had a full DA groupo matched with forte stem/bars and seatpost. All stuff that will work, some of which is fairly light and strong but considered to be a cheaper option among cyclists.
This is all really dumb, but this is dumber than dumb.

Took a pretty bad spill today. Replaced a bottle cage that broke in the fall, as well as new brifter hoods because mine developed gouges from the fall. I'm waiting for black friday to replace my torn kit though.

This was the last year for the Idol frameset from De Rosa. The price was too good to pass up, and at least I'll be able to transfer the SR11 parts from the Noah over to this.

Mine look exactly the same but I got black brass nipples. Running them tubeless. They are an awesome wheelset for a hell of a price. I'm getting some deep wide carbon tubulars from him next year for racing.

Thanks guys!

They're much smoother and more comfortable than my old set up (rs-10's and scwable Lug's). So far I posted my fastest overall time (not by much) on my normal short ride which is 12 miles. That was today and it was a little chilly / dark this evening compared to my late summer day run.

So far I'm very very very happy. We'll see if they "break-in" a bit more after a few hundred miles. They have a whopping 30 miles on them so far haha.

I thought they were quite loud cruising when I spun them at home but compared to my friends zip 404s they are a little quiter.


TXRR - I have that same Camelbak bottle! Hah what you think compared to the polars?
