    no, that's not a dent. that's a distinguished design on the fondriest frames. http://www.fondriest-usa.com

    Show Me A Photo Of Your Road Bike

    i know what you meant by this statement, but you have to be careful how things come out. my bro-in-law is about 210 lbs, but dropped down to that from about 50 lbs. more (and can't really lose much more due to his large bone structure). he rides a litespeed ti bike, which i believe is perfect...

    Show Me A Photo Of Your Road Bike

    :D i guess you could say that. it's actually gonna be a budget bike for now. if i decide i love the frame, i'll rebuild it again someday decked out with campy record and all.

    Cane Creek Team Ti carbon wheels

    yeah, you could tell they were good and stiff from the sound. kind of a whirring noise i guess.

    Your Ride!

    currently riding a mid 90's cannondale r300 2.8 all aluminum frame with low end shimano stuff. thought about rebuilding it, but decide to use to train on this winter and purchased a used Casati Monza frame. will be building it up with shimano ultegra 9 speed group...wheelset still to be decided.

    Building a "Balanced" Bike...

    better start out with a good frame. you can't build a good bike without a good platform to start with. putting excellent components on a crappy frame still makes it a crappy bike. same with the components. XT will serve you pretty well without spending the money on XTR. i have all XT on my...

    Question about Rims

    the ceramics are super nice. my bro-in-law rides on them and they have incredible stopping power (coupled with the correct pads) and they don't put off heat like a lot of other rims do. you hold your finder on the side of the rim while it's spinning fast and you don't feel any heat at all...not...

    Where to buy shorts at a good price in USA?

    used to ride in a pair of "showy" trek/vw shorts, but the chamois is ****. just got a set of bib/shorts from performance and they blow the name brand shorts away. even though they're plain black, they still rock!

    Cane Creek Team Ti carbon wheels

    i can't speak from experience, but i saw a guy using them a couple weekends ago in a crit race. needless to say, he lapped the entire field once and could've done it twice. the wheels looked and sounded great. the roads were partly brick and very abusive, but from what i could tell, they worked...

    Beginner wanting to become a pro.

    one helpful thing i've found is to watch crit races even before you're ready to race. it helps you learn what racing is all about and what all is involved. if there's a local bike shop that has a team, go and try to hang out with them to get the inside scoop on things. it helps to know what crit...

    Cannondale R1000 vs. Cervelo Soloist?

    dude it's cool. i can get heated up sometimes too. but we're all fellow cyclists trying help each other out, not bash each other or each others bikes. apology accepted. ride on!
