    I also recently added clipless pedals that work with the green shoes you see by the seat as well.

    Aushiker, those are some sweet rides! If I'm not mistaken, that's an MSR tent as well. Do you go hiking a lot?

    Thanks. Not a MSR, but close. That is a Black Diamond Mesa. Cycling has taken over now days so tend to spend what little time I have cycle touring rather than hiking. Mind you I did revisit the Cape to Cape Walk Trail in 2009 to fulfil a commitment to the Perth Bushwalkers Club to lead a walk of the Trail. Andrew

    Ahh okay gotcha. Yeah hiking is my 2nd interest. I live in the US, so my wife and I hike and camp in the smoky mountains, red river gorge area quite often. Mammoth Cave National Park, the largest cave system in the world, is 45 minutes up the road from us.

    And the second part of my question Andrew...how do you find them in use? Do they vibrate annoyingly? Give a good feild of vision?

    Sorry missed the second part. No problems with vibration but they can be easily bumped. I guess that is a good thing and a bad thing. It dosen't bother me. Field of view is limited but I have got use to it now and I find it works well around the city. Out on a tour I find it a bit more limiting and prefer a larger mirror, but around town, they work fine. I check what is happening behind me far more than I would doing head checks. In fact I don't head check much at all. For example if wanting to change lanes I can do multiple checks with the mirror in advance so to speak to time the gap, whereas head-checking, I would probably have to come to a stop on some days. The mirror gives me sufficient detail to judge it okay. Andrew

    This is the start of my race build for next year, a full SRAM Force group will be going on. I am not sure if I am going to change out the bars, seatpost, and seat, I am not big on spending tons of $ just to save a few grams. The measurements match my current setup exact, but since the headtube on the Caad 10 is so much larger than my current bike, the stem is slammed, which IMO will make the bike look sweet once I trim the extra off..

    It'll be a cool set up.
    Race speed is almost all about wheels (aero, lightweight) rather than shaving a gram or two on the seatpost or some other non rotating part.
