I hear it comes with a larger, much improved Big Dick
Seems like lots of money to (very) marginally improve the ride.
Something like a telescoping seat post, on the other hand, would seem to be a more worthwhile investment. Haven't bought one yet though, because I'm cheap.
Big dick = more weight = slower Strava times.
A local rider I know just posted this on his Facebook page:
"I cleared the trail of storm debris on the few couple laps, then was doing a lap for time (and KILLING it) when a tree fell across the trail right in front of me! I slammed on the brakes, but was going too fast to stop. I hit the tree and launched over the bars. I'm so bummed, I was 3/4 of the way through and I know I had the KOM in the bag. Also, my bib shorts ripped wide open, and all my bits and pieces were flapping in the wind. There was nothing I could do to hide it, either! I did the Gravity Destroyed climb KOM with my dick quite literally flapping in the wind. :/ Be careful, the tree is still across the trail, I could not move it."
i'd guess some Stravadiots would consider that an even better excuse for not holding a KOM than not having this years newest coolest parts.
I'm not one of those, but I think my parts have been the coolest since I figured out what you can do with em.
You may disagree, but *I* know *the truth.*
Here's a quick clip from my local trail - http://youtu.be/34rJsAV5Eik?t=8s
arrrrgh! fix them squeaky brakes!!
A thousand pardons if this is 205.

One huge plus to riding at night: you can't tell how steep the hills you're climbing are so you just go up em
Cat says, "Screw Strava, get me some tuna!"
Went up a several climbs much faster during a predawn ride, just the cone of light in front, wisps of water condensing out of the fog on my face and glasses. Kept changing gears and spinning. Thoughts not on how long or steep the hill was.
I think "thoughts" are why many cyclists hate climbing and sometimes fail to make it to the top. My GF and MTB partner absolutely hate climbs, whether it be on the trail or road. I embrace and conquer them. I love it!
for me its less 'thoughts' than 'I can't keep up with the skinny SOBs.' I ride/rode with some 130-pounders. At 165 (+) it takes me darn near 2.5x their wattage to get up the hill at the same speed. I can do it, but it takes it out of me VERY quickly.
My GF is 125lbs, but, a girl that doesn't ride as much as I. And, my MTB partner is 6'4" and ~250lbs. You need different riding partners that'll make you feel better.
How do you calculate wattage? It would be interesting to know how much energy I'd save if I lost 10 lbs.
Yeah, and I *should* race the Cat 4 cross races, but I don't. I typically ride with the 1s and 2s and get my ass handed to me.
Last nite was a case in point. Former pro and another buddy were up chatting away going up the hills I couldn't see as I'm behind em huffing and puffing like a steam engine that couldn't. Last week it was the same former pro and a current Cat 1 chatting away. One of these days...
