      Honestly, I love the Reynolds wheels. I've never ever had a problem with them flexing and have been very very rough on them. They've endured about as much abuse as you can imagine and in every condition and I have never experienced any flexing, rubbing or problems of any sort with them. How old were the ones you used? What was your riding weight at that time?


    6. 07-09-2009 11:45 AM #286
      I had a pair that had roughly 200 miles on them prior to be getting them. I was at 175, which is what I weigh now. Did a few climbs and long rides to Bear mntn and back and that's all it took. They were true, so I didn't bother with the spokes, but they did flex.

    7. 07-09-2009 11:55 AM #287
      Man, that is really interesting. I wonder if you got a bad set or if they just needed to be tensioned properly. I weigh 180 now and when I was racing all the time I weighed 173 and have never had a problem with them flexing. Depending on what "model year" you had, that may have been a contributing factor. I know that in 2007 they changed the design of the carbon rim pretty dramatically....that could have had something to do with it maybe??

      In any event, I am really sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with them, that sucks.


    8. 07-09-2009 12:05 PM #288
      It could have been for sure, I didn't bother to chk to be honest, I was annoyed so I boxed them and sold them a little time after, close to 100 miles of rubbing the brakes needless to say put me off.. I had success with 404s, as well hed 3s. Anxious to get my hands on a pair of jet 6s or 9s to see how they go

      Cannondale CAAD9-6.

      The surprise that I got on this is that it has a Tiagra front derailleur. The spec sheet on the website says it's a Sora. Plus I got it on sale. I'm loving the way it rides.

      My bike I've built on a budget. I work at a shop so I could easily ep a nicer bike bike but I love the way this thing rides. It's an 04ish Trek 2100 frame, some racelite and x-lite bits, EP'ed some Easton EA70's, brand new 105 10spd shifters off a friend for $50!, Ultegra cassette and derailleurs , free pro-race2 tires. All in all I've got less than $500 in the bike I'm getting a lightly used Ultegra crank with ceramic BB to replace this Bontrager 9/10spd crank that does not want to shift right at all and then I'll consider it "done" till I feel like buying a CAAD 9 frameset.

      so this friday ill probably be picking up a 2007 Specialized Allez Expert

      the bike is supremely clean and has only been ridden <300 miles

      the price ill be getting it for is $500, and its a fellow bikes shop employee

      im assuming this is an outstanding deal; but im not an expert on road bikes, any toughts?


    15. 07-14-2009 12:50 AM #295
      already posted this one back a few pages:

      but i bought another one for cheap on CL to ride while visiting fam in the bay area. i'll ship it back to toronto when i leave. its decent enough to ride around except for the saddle so i went into SF today and bought a black SOMA okami. looks like a selle san marco regal except the price tag is 1/2... good enough. wifeys already pissed about this as it is...


      wheelie for hipster points

      I was at the crit on Saturday, but I did not race. I am taking this season off, or at least most of it. I may race the Giro in September.... we'll see....

      cleaned it up, adjusted fit, and put on a decent saddle.

      My bike, which I inherited from my father.
      I do not know the model, but it is at least 12yrs old I believe.
      I was there when my dad bought it and spec'd out the components.
      All Campagnolo stuff, save for Shimano pedals and the Thompson seat post I bought since I am taller than my dad was.

      I am just starting to get into road and mountain biking and it is very intoxicating. I have been thinking about a carbon Bianchi fork, largely because I love the look of carbon. I am also considering new/different grip tape.

      If you change anything on that bike, I will fly out and punch you in the throat.

      If you want carbon, get a new-er bike.
