My new bicycle

61cm Cervelo RS Dura Ace team kit. It's 17.0 pounds as you see it, with pedals and water bottle cages.


There's just no way around that giant seatpost. At 6'4", I need the height.

    And it doubles as a door barricade to keep the terrorists out. Sweet!

    *drool* Look at it, waiting by the door, it wants to be taken outside!

    So you went for it?

    OK, now you've got just the right bike for this

    "Vroomen White Design"?
  • Matt Haughey PRO 7y

    Yeah, I wondered what that meant (honkies ride fast?) but it turns out that the founders of the company design the frames and their names are Gerard Vroomen and Phil White.

    how you liking the Conti GP4000s's? i ordered a set to replace my Pro2's. my hope is that they roll as well but grip better in the corners.

    I like them, I had them on my last bike too, but after a few flats this winter (the shoulders on the roads around here get covered in gravel, which does result in a lot of flats), I ended up moving to a 700x25 4-season Continental tire and didn't get another flat all winter.

    I haven't gotten any flats so far with this bike running the 4000s so I'll keep them on as long as I can.

    Same issue with flats around here, especially this time of year. I'm spending more time dodging debris than enjoying the ride. That said, I'll take low rolling resistance over durability every time!

    The 4-season tire isn't bad at all. I didn't notice much loss of average speed due to the wider 25mm tire, and on the flip side the ride is definitely plush compared to a 23mm race tire.

    I'll have to give them a try, thanks. I had S-Works Roubaix tires, 25c profile, dual-compound. They were super comfy and handled corners like they were on rails... but they cost me about 40-60 watts on average to maintain the speed of the Pro2's. Not to mention they got pinch flats with anything more than a 5psi drop in pressure. Sounds like these 4-seasons could be a good compromise.
