Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

First ever bike, "univega" mountain bike - this company is defunct now
- could not comment on the performane -
10 random bikes after,

(photos of recent bikes below)

Road bike Trek 2300 - aluminium frame, Ultegra Groupset, Bontreger wheels - solid wheels, solid bike,
in todays view soft and not a god power transfer, but the bike was from 2003

Next, Giant, TCR C2 - full carbon, but still soft, mavic wheels, 105 groupset
a bit of an advantage. but not much

Next (big upgrade)
Specialized Tarmac Comp 2012 frame - Sram Force groupset, ksyrium equipe wheels,
amazing performance upgrade,
switching from Shimano groupset to Sram was very beneficial,

S-Works Tarmac SL3, Sram Red (black) carbon Pro-lite wheels (with allrounderss ksyrium equipe)
Not much advantage on the climbs, big advantage on the sprints and descents
