    shimano Di2

    Couldn't put it off any longer, took this test, got Di2 certified(have to build a Di2 Cervelo). Just looking at it and riding it, it 'seems' complicated. Installing it is much more so. Not rocket surgery or anything but more than a few gotchas when installing and adjusting. It 'seems' to be...

    For Alienator-LA in Tucson

    Not a great big fan of his but I read that Lance A. is in a training camp in your fair city. Are his training rides poached by the locals there? Does he and his bunch care? Or is it encouraged? Always kinda neat to ride 'with' genuine pros. I rode along with Rominger, Furlan in the late 80s in...

    How many want to see an end to gun and cycling threads?

    Geeez, it's not like anybody's mind is going to be changed with arguments on a cycling forum. Let's stick to bicycles, shall we? sign me 'tired of gun threads'.

    2009 ProTour teams

    It's winter, and this is a discussion group. This isn't a invitation to start any this group vs that group warfare. I just think it's interesting. Just got my new Velonews and they announced the 16 ProTour teams for 2009. 10 are equipped with Campagnolo, 5 with shimano and 1 with sram. What I...

    2009 Campagnolo

    Well, received 11s shifters, ders, cogsets, chain, etc and began the eval on what works with what and..........it is all intercompatible. 11s levers and 10s ders and vice versa.

    Back to the Future

    Just saw an ad on Velonews.com for a place that is selling...gasp, Record and DA hubs laced to DT rims with dt spokes, laced 3 cross, brass nipps and ...tied and soldered. Like this is a new thing. I don't agree with their reasons to do it BUT. Marketing something that decent bike shops have...
