    Fsa Goes Electronic

    FSA electronic groupset makes an appearance in prototype form. Looks to be much more compact than Shimano's and Campy's electronic rear derailleurs. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/fsa-electronic-groupset-spotted-at-tour-de-france Waiting to see more of SRAM's latest rev of their entry...

    Campy Shifter And Front Derailleur Compatibility

    There's been lots of discussions on cross brand 11sp cassette compatibility. But I have a question regarding the compatibility of Campagnolo's 11sp shifter and front derailleurs. Specifically, I have 2013 Campy Record 11sp shifters with the same vintage front derailleur, but would like to...

    Brit's Aero Bikes

    What's with Wiggo, Cav and the rest of the Brits riding odd looking aero bikes in the Olympic RR? Don't they have to ride their Sky team issue Pinarellos? The aero bikes may be functional, but they are not esthetically pleasing to look at.....That bar/stem is especially hideous.

    BB30 to BB24

    I recently bought a new frameset with the BB30 standard bottom bracket. I have a Sram Red crankset and GXP ceramic BB to intall, but here's my dilema. The Red crankset and GXP BB is the "standard" 24mm version. I don't want to spend more $$$$ for a BB30 crankset and BB30 bearing set when I...

    Mid range Campy/Shimano/SRAM?

    I have a good dilemma. I'm building up a new bike (Eddy Merckx carbon frameset). For the fact that I don't want to take out a second mortgage to afford Super Record/Record/Chorus/D-A 7900/Red, I'll be instead looking at the mid range groupsets from the three manufacturers. My prior...

    Low drop road stem

    I've been looking at various brands and models of road stem to find the one with the lowest drop. Since there is no industry measuring standard, trying to decipher the manufacturer's posted specs is confusing. Some use the steerer column angle as the reference point. Others use the rise from...

    Another era full of dopers....

    http://www.velonews.com/article/93220/fignon-facing-cancer-fight Fignon's statement, "The (doping) products I took were intramuscular, they didn't pass through the stomach. So, no. If all the cyclists who doped would later have cancer, then everyone would have cancer...." Sorry to hear of...

    Alternatives to Mich and Conti's

    I'm looking for a set of clinchers for my new set of HED Jets. Besides the always popular and proven Michelin Pro Race 2 and 3's, the Continental GP4000 and Attack/Force combo and the Vittoria's range, what other alternatives to these do you recommend? I've had the Mich, Conti, Vitt and...

    What a sham!

    So it's case closed for Operación Puerto? That's it?? The only charges are for "endangering public health" against Dr. Fuentes and hematologist José Luis Merino? Even with that, they'll probably get light disciplinary action from the Spanish medical board. After three years of BS and almost...

    It's here! New Dura-Ace 7900!!

    http://www.velonews.com/article/76923/shimano-unveils-the-new-dura-ace-7900 7900 is not revolutionary like past vintages of Dura-Ace but evolutionary improvements in shifting, braking, lower weight, lower friction is all good. Asthetics is subjective but I for one, like the (finally) carbon...

    Dave, stop Whining and start Winning!

    .....Millar is getting seriously tiresome. His holier than thou attitude on anti-doping (not to forget he's a convicted doper) and constant whining (ie. Giro TT stage)......just shut the f-up and start winning something at least.

    Quick and easy question: Will the SRAM Force brifter work with the Dura-Ace 10sp front/rear derailleurs and a Dura-Ace cassette?

    FSA Top Cap Question

    I have a FSA K-Force carbon stem but it's missing the top cap. I noticed FSA has two versions of replacement top caps. 1) a compression sleeve type and 2) a star nut type. Which one is more secure and won't slip? Which one won't damage a carbon steerer tube? Which one is overall the better...

    Inspired by P3?

    I've been casually looking around for a hi-end carbon TT frameset and have concluded that many of the new carbon TT framesets from different manufacturers all have designs based on the Cervelo P3, in particular the carbon version. Pinarello Montello FP8, Specialized Transition, Orbea Ordu...

    Mavic 3G Carbon Trispoke Rear Hub

    I have an older Mavic 3G carbon trispoke rear wheel that has an old school 8sp screw-on freewheel. I know Mavic made hub conversion kits so that the wheel can be converted for road or track use. But do they also make a kit to convert the the hub from a screw-on freewheel to a cassette type...

    Integrated headset crown race

    A question about installing an integrated headset onto a fork. A friend bought a new frameset that included a fork and an integrated headset (Cane Creek IS-2). On inspection, we're slightly confused by the integrated headset. The crown race that usually sits on the flat part of the fork has a...
