    Hmmm...heavyweight lycra and covers my bar ends -- I think I'm already wearing something like that.

  3. Gee Bill...a bra? Oh well. How are you doing? What wheelset did you finally get to replace the
    unfortunate originals? Did you bite on the Zipps? The wind had died down here so I've been riding
    the HED Disk/HED3 combo most days. However, the hills are a callin' and I want a new set of lighter
    wheels to go with my lighter body.

    Jude, Bra's can be fun. They remind me of Christmas morning when I was a kid. You'd never know what
    was gonna pop up when you pulled the ribbon. But I digress... I initially got some Nimble Spiders
    http://www.nimble.net/ Low profile for less crosswind effect and enhanced acceleration, and pretty
    aero. They were really well made. Plus they arrived ready to put a tire on and go. However, I ended
    up with 28 spokes because the rim is so shallow so they were, IMO, slower than the Spartici though
    they were lighter. So I got some Zipp 303's. They are pretty light (1280g/pair ,16X20) even with
    bladed spokes. They arrived w/o rim tape and with machining debris in the tube holes and I cut
    several tubes even with rim tape before I got that ciphered. They really seem to be a good balance
    of weight and aero. bill g

  7. 1280 a pair is pretty darn lite. I'm looking for somthing in the 12/13 area. The new Alex 320s in
    571 go 1400 and for the price their a bargain. I still run the Sparts but have been riding the
    HEDdisk/HED3 combo as of late. Gettin' much riding in...the weather there appears to have been as
    foul as it has been here.

    Jude, Overall I think the weight thing is mostly folderol. (is that haiku ;-), but I can't ignore it
    cause we have some lumpy routes hereabouts. To a point. What I mean is there are so many variables.
    Road surface, side winds, grade. I think the HED disk would beat me up on the roads we usually ride,
    but would be a a hoot on smooth stuff. Anyway, the Zipps hit the middle of comfort and speed. bill g

  9. HEDS are sure cool lookin', but they will beat you up on some road surfaces. Sid winds, so far have
    not been a problem. I don't ride em' on windy days. I gotta gave cool since I'n a cool dude. (barf
    now) So anyway my AERO now sports the SRAM XO deraileur and shifter set. Their CF accents (fake)
    look, well..... cool! They shift great and should I visit you I'll have a few more gears for the
    silly things...what do you call them...oh yea? mountains? While I'm really not a "Gramcracker" I
    can't see pedaling anymore weight around then I have to. So I'm dieting rather unsuccessfully. Sooo
    the only alternative is bent weight reduction. Additionaly, If I don't ride more I be buying a motor
    also. Aluminum, CF and ti of course.

    Cheers not beers!

    I'm in the process of specing out a STRADA Tour model...again. It will have a 26" Kinesis
    Lite Aluminium fork, beefy wheelset possibly Deore/Rhynolite/DT a 52/42/28 11/32, underseat
    pannier and rear rack of some sort. I hope to do some more PM Corsa's also.

    They have grip shifters, big brake levers, handlebar grips with long black leather fringes (like on
    Harleys), fairing brackets, rear view mirrors and a bell and a horn. You wish, Bill.

    Kinda like a car wreck. There was a lot of screeching and moaning, at one point I was upside down,
    and at the end I was thrown clear.
