    Opinions about Kuota Kredo please?

    I love my Kestrel Talon SL. Super stiff, light, and comfy. Absorbs bumps great. It just wants to go straight and fast.

    Fast tire suggestion

    I'm looking for a fast training tire. My Michelin Carbons are almost done with. They were very durable but not as fast as I'd like. What do you guys suggest for fast training?

    Wheel rebuilding with bladed spokes

    I was wondering.... is it possible to rebuild a wheel replacing regular spokes with bladed spokes? I have velomax ciruits as my training wheels and was thinking about rebuilding them with bladed spokes just for added aero. Is this possible? Also, where can I find aftermarket bladed spokes? Thanx

    Selling frameset process

    Great thanx guys! Now where is the best place to sell my Talon frameset. Here, craigslist,etc? Oh and is there a rule of thumb as to how much to price used equipment. I know in the photography world it is 80% of current retail price. Is this about right for pricing bike equipment?
