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

Nope.
Hydroxycloroquine = Ivermectin. Now it all makes sense.

A few times. I have told them its value for COVID is not well established and I am not comfortable ordering it for them.

Wilier USA advertises di 2 for 9,000, however if I could get it with sram force it would be 8,000. I even am now leaning towards the zero SL. With sram or chorus it would be 7,000 which would leave money over for a computer, power meter and trainer. Unfortunately I can’t find one anywhere.

Not that I need to rush, but getting permission from the wife one has to act before she changes her mind.

Allied echo interest me a lot, just doesn’t have the aero I was hoping for, but maybe that’s not as important? Thoughts?

Have you looked at WrenchScience?

Nice call.

Other than Excel, my first look is always the R&A Closeout section. There are deals to be had, but it appears they've stripped all the closeouts of the group sets. A sign of the times. Of course, they do have a decent selection of built up bikes too.

That’s so weird, when I looked the other day I could not find all the options listed.

Thank you.

Looks like the switch the wheels out though on both the filante slr, and the zero sl. They throw shimano rs wheels on it for some reason, will have to ask.

When perusing the netz afew months ago, there seemed to be several Giant bike shops that have small parts like seatpost wedges, rubber covers, etc. That may have changed by now. Haven't looked recently.

It does bother me that these ISPs with special wedges and parts could render a frame completely useless if a small plastic piece broke or got lost.

There is a Saturn forums, in case anyone is wondering.

I just posted in there yesterday about changing the manual transmission fluid. The owner's manual says change at 30K and never again. So I am at 190K and last change was 160K ago. Works fine. But apparently that may not be correct?
