After reading all these rediculous posts from everyone I say cut-it-out. The original poster did not have to immeadiately say that everything else sucks and my bike is the best and I love it, he could have just said I like my new bike. Also, another thing to think about is maybe some might not understand what real stiffness is. I thought my bike was amazingly stiff until I learned more on this forum, and understood what tells you of the stiffness of the bike. After a year or so on the forum, it was just until recently that I learned why the chain rubs the front derailller when standing.

I think I am just saying that:

1) Don't attack eachother guys, it doesn't help anyone.

2) Maybe the bike does feel stiff to him, and it is perfectly all right if he feels that way about it. We don't all have to always agree on everything and that is what makes the forum so great! ALL THE DIFFERENT IDEAS AND VIEWS!

HA! I have a bike that will outperform yours anyday, ryanholio: I've glued together a bike from all the popcorn dropped during this useless thread! Forget Ti, forget great painjobs, forget bad graphics... texture baby! I'll be the first to admit that it is only a fair weather bike, but it's buttery smooth!

When any of us have spend hard earned money on a bicycle, and then spent many difficult hours researching just the right upgrades to turn this bicycle into a two wheeled wonder, we feel like proud parents. To us, our baby will always be beautiful. But it is because of this that we understand that not everyone will feel the same way about our baby... they have babies of their own! To attempt to pound your own chest by belittling others (and their opinions) just won't fly.

We all love the sport for our own reasons, but most of those reasons have something to do with the magic that we feel when we are one with our bicycle at speed.

We all love this forum for our own reasons, but most have to do with the fact that collectively, we can bring together a great deal of knowledge, expertise and informed opinions on the latest and greatest WW items. The key to this however is the way in which we interact - respect breeds respect, and trust is gained through time. Don't shoot yourself in the foot by shooting off you mouth.

Oh, and if this thread is going to keep going like the Energizer Bunny, would someone please pass the popcorn! :popcorn:

I like the bike. I like all bikes. I used to have a litespeed Mtn bike till I got tired of the companies day to day changes in warranty policies. It rode nice though. The one question I have is about the brake pads. Why use the yellow swisstop pads that are meant for carbon on an aluminum rim?

It's the only pads that came with them and they work really well on the Aluminu, rims I thought. Hmmm.

If they work, go for it. I don't know if they are softer and will wear faster, or if they are more abrasive like a pad for ceramic coated rims. You might check to find out though as the ones for ceramic pads tend to wear aluminum rims very rapidly. I had some on an old mountain bike and wasn't aware they were ceramic rim pads and wore out a set of standard 517 rims in about a season of heavy riding.

To other weenies; when you take a picture, wouldn't it be much nicer if the chain was on the big chainring?



AGREED! Always looks better in the big dog, the little things make the difference.

Not sure if it was this topic or a different one, but another poster commented he didn't understand why Climber's Cup was locked and this one isn't locked. Lot's of insults and non-WW stuff on this topic and should be locked. I'm guessing a moderator hasn't been following the comments here.

BTW, What was the bug up someone's a** that got Climber's Cup locked? :? :roll: It had some real potential to have good discussion about light weight bikes. Someone on Climber's Cup mentioned Mt Evans and Mt Washington Hillclimb events. If you've ever been to either, you can see some seriously WW bikes there. Personally saw many at a couple of editions of the Mt Washington event. :D
