    Pain on the outside of my left knee

    Hello all, Lately I've been experiencing pain on the outside of my left leg. I thought at first it might have been the running that I've started to do (thinking about doing a sprint tri) so I stopped that for a while. That has not changed my condition at the moment. After about 2 hours I can...

    Mavic lockring question...

    All, I have a set of Ksyrium SSL SC with a campy freehub. Anyhow, the freehub came with a mavic lockring. I was wondering if I could possibly use this in place of the standard Campy lockring for a 13-29 cassette ? Thanks, Ian

    Average Speed of professional racer

    Thanks for the response! Again, as I see races on dvd and TV, I am just amazed as to the length of some of these sustained attacks, especially when the peloton goes uphill on the last hill climb of a 4+ hour race. I can normally do about 25mph for about 30min - tops! Otherwise I average maybe...

    Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could point to a company that makes a plastic seatpost shim to fit a 27.0 seatpost that will fit a 28.0 diameter ? I'm looking to replace my stock seatpost on my C40 and well as can tell, it's non-standard. Thanks, Ian

    Opinion on the NEW triathlon bike

    Click on the URL http://www.cervelo.com/text-deal-can.html. It gives all of the Cervelo dealers in Canada. By the way, my girlfriend purchased a Cervelo One - their entry level tri bike. She loves it. Got it here in San Diego (Nytro store) and had it shipped. Custom came to about $100 US I believe.

    C40 durability

    They are asking for $2400 - which I also felt is bit much even tho it's brand spankin new, never been built. Fortunately, I picked up an early 2003 C-40 AD-22 for alot less! Just gotta pickup some extra parts, transfer my components from my other frame and build it up! Oh Yeah! Ian in SanDiego

    Road Wheels, Kysrium SL or Eurus

    I've got a set of the 04 Ksyriums. I used to ride the 2001 Ksyriums until I got a pair of the 04's. The 04's are definitely stiffer than the 01's. I'm about 175 and ride a litespeed. Never tried the Zurus but I have rode the Neutrons for 100 miles. The neutrons are bit more forgiving but I...

    C40 durability

    All, I'm trying to get an idea on the durability of C40 Bstays. My local LBS has a Limited Edition World Champion 2002 Bstay model. I'm looking for C40 owners who ride their C40's 'regularly' - no racing etc - just normal 40 - 100 mile rides. I've been saving up the money and have been looking...

    shimano-campagnolo compatible?

    This will not work. Shimano front/rear derailleurs are designed for indexed shifting. What will work is the following: Record 10 ergolevers, Record 10 front/rear derailleur, Shimano 9spd cassette (ultegra) and Shimano 9spd chain (ultegra) <- My current setup. Match the chain to the cassette.
