IMO, that is the very last place you should look for improving performance on a bike.

Edit: By last, I mean after improving in every other area.
Whatever, you said it was useless and that hurt our feelings.

Indeed. That was a micro-aggression against cyclists looking for the last .01%.

Planning to attack black people next Itty? Or gays? Maybe you just don't like Jews very much, or think that women shouldn't be allowed to have careers?

A little late on the stem length discussion but if you just started road biking you are missing a **** ton of flexibility in your back. Something that feels like a long reach now may feel almost upright in a few months. Core strength makes a huge difference too. Unless you are getting fitted at a shop I wouldn't change much up until you have gained more core strength and flexibility.

Itty is a very strong Cat 2 road racer in his 20's with a chip on his shoulder. Not the first time he's trolled anyone he deems less "racer" than he perceives himself.

Cannondale is really shooting themselves in the foot. First of all, the paint is miserable:

The guys who came up with this **** paint were fired, right?

Then, they have some weird, new asymmetric rear-wheel standard on disc bikes and the Super-X so everyone will have to re-dish or change wheels.

Then, we have good, old Spesh killing it with this:

I don't race anymore since my hips destroyed themselves. The extent of my cycling is now 3 miles to work and back on weekdays and maybe a trip to the gas station for a 6-pack. Not very "racer".

But really, not sure why I'm getting attacked for saying ceramic bearings and brand of chain lube are less important than training/diet/tactics/whatever. If you seriously want to improve as an athlete, that money is FAR better spent on getting a coach (if you haven't already). There's nothing wrong with spending money on anything, though. It's your money.

I'm sort of amazed at the unfounded insults. Discussion is hard.

All,

The time came to make our own kit so here it is:[img][/img]
http://i.imgur.com/sz8SVkb.jpg

Grupetto Fiasco
The store closes on July 8th at Midnight; target ship date is July 29th so you will have your ultra-stylish kit for CX season, make us proud.
We chose Jakroo because my three bros and I have these kits from another team and been in them for two years, wearing them roughly 1.5 times per week and after two seasons there is very little wear on them. They’ve been through the rain, several muddy CX races, hit with the pressure washer, and they still look great. Jakroo also happens to be quite affordable. We are going to see how this goes, open the store again in the fall to sell vests, and maybe another jersey run. If you have questions, let me know

Current pricing is $92 for the jersey, $110 for the bibs, if we sell more than 25 kits the prices are $80 and $96. If you order, please let us know by updating this link:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing
It is imperative that you update the sheet.

It's imperative that you be a pro ************ and not ride a Cervelo or ride with a saddle bag. Emilio has a pass on the Cervelo.

Your bikes suck and your kit makes you look fat.
