Only since about 1980:

That chrome thing on the back of the seatpost is a Breeze & Angell Hite-Rite. I do have to remove a hand from the handlebar, though.

I've had a set of Mavic Helium wheels on my skinny bike since '98, and they have never had to be trued. I bunny hop a set of RR tracks on my tuesday ride every week. I'll be buying Mavic again.

Seriously, I have this irrational fear of learning to dismount a bike while moving. Maybe it is being clipped in that is doing it. Bound and chained and all. I still have my old Schwinn Crossfit with flat pedals I could use for practice.

how bad could it really hurt

:uhoh

BTW, I'm sure you saw the results. :D

It's a 2010 leftover, but it's all mine, and it came home today!

I have Soul Wheels http://www.bikesoul.com/ on order, and should have them just in time for the snow to start falling in Utah!

I chose them because they're four-sided. On a two-sided clipless, one of the sides has to be somewhat up to engage the cleat and they don't clear mud very well. On the Eggbeaters, you can just stomp and go and there's no place for mud to accumulate. The only thing I'm adjusting to is that these require more angle to disengage (setup at 15 degrees and I'm used to six).

The cost was mentioned, at $3800.

I sold my tri bike and MTB to help fund this purchase. My intent was to get down to two regular-use bikes and have them setup as long-term rides. This bike had everything that I wanted, at a good pricepoint.

I looked at 'em. Meh. Shimano. 26" wheels. Doesn't do anything for me.

The Tallboy gets great reviews, but, just couldn't swing that kind of money. Furthermore, riding that is like running through the woods with the Mona Lisa.

A friend has a '10 Giant Trance Advanced SL. It's pure sex, but, it would kill me to ride something like that and scratch it.

Can anyone offer any advice for retaping handle bars?

I know it sounds like a simple task, but I'm likely to wind up with a baseball size wad on the end of the drop and a little curlycue strand on the rest of the bar, such is my degree of precision with these things...

If anyone has any tips i'd appreciate them. :ear

Also, I have some kind of gel pads under the current tape @five years old, can I reuse these or should I try to get new pads?
