  • Re: Should you be able to ride a bike in the rain?

    I wondered the same thing and asked about a grommet or rubber cover for the front derailleur cable hole. LBS said there isn't one. I looked at a new R3 in the shop and there was nothing covering the hole. That hole seems like it's in a prime spot to dump sand and water into that BB area.

  • Re: Wheel upgrade for 2018 R3

    Aeolus Pro 3 is a great wheel. Nice find. They are robust, so weight is not the lightest out there, but you won't have any problems with them. At around 1500 grams they are a little lighter than my old aluminum Rol race SL clinchers and your C35s. Rotational weight is a weighty subject as we all know so go as light as you can stand (dare) on ...

  • Re: Should you be able to ride a bike in the rain?

    I don't like riding in the rain, but it unexpectedly happens once in a while. That shouldn't bother any bike, even a Walmart Special. What I do watch out for here in Maine is salt. Fall, Winter and Spring- the road crews spread it like crazy. So if you bike on a wet day after they have salted, you could get some of that in your BB. Salt ...

  • Re: Wheel upgrade for 2018 R3

    You can go a lot less expensive than $2k for a good carbon wheel set, unless you need to have a "brand". I shopped around extensively 4 years ago, eventually hearing about ICAN wheels. I also found someone who had ridden on them for a good while. After his glowing reports, I decided to give them a try. Back then they were about $450 ...

  • Re: Bottom Bracket Lifespan

    I did the same monsoon Trek Across Maine that cawright mentions and he's not kidding about the amount of water we rode through. Inches of water on the roadways plus constant moderate to heavy rainfall. At the end of the first day, I hosed off my crank, chain and cassette. I was riding my 2006 Specialized Allez Comp with a triple 105 group on ...

  • Re: New cervelo up dates don't include the S series😐

    When has a new bike "come out" with a lower price? Yes, it may have happened at one time or another, but certainly not common in my experience. S series has always seemed premium priced since I first saw one at a bike shop. Has always been an excellent looking and great riding bike. Hope this new model doesn't balloon in price too ...

  • Re: Adding Sunweb??

    Any of the cyclists that survive a TdF deserve to be admired, regardless of their personality quirks/faults. There's an enormous amount of personal sacrifice, pain and uber insane dedication to make it all the way to the Champ's pave show, let alone trying to remain competitive all the way. I wonder what the whiny quotient would be ...

  • Re: Replace/upgrade r3 ?

    Get a new one with disc brakes and help out the economy. Keep the old R3 for those rainy days, although the disc brakes are way better in the wet than rim brakes. I tend to keep my bikes a while and will upgrade here and there when there's a significant benefit. I'm still very happy with the lowly R2 orphan I bought 2+ years ago. It still ...

  • Re: Cav has an opinion on the S5 as 5 year old design?

    Yep. Agree. Cav's not a bad guy but does push into not so great spots when he makes his moves at times. Sometimes the choices turn out badly. Cav and Sagan had a racing accident. That kind of thing unfortunately happens in the heat of the competitive moment every once in a while. Sagan is a hoot to watch, seems not to take himself too ...
