That is a pretty epic collection of wheels, and whilst I know you say this is only "some" of your collection, even though they are all very nice wheels, why not mix it up a bit? I mean 3 out of 4 pairs are in the 45-50mm range? Why not some Deep (eg. Edge 68s or Zipp Z8s) and shallow wheels (Ventoux etc) as well as these standard deep ones?

IMO RZR is the best all around here, Not too deep not too shallow and extreamly fast accelerate :beerchug:
For group riding i prefer EDGE65 + tune hub thats save alot of WATT

PS. 6.7Kg as shown

I think this cassette with a single spiderless chainring on the front would be amazing. I have a 32t from my MTB that would mean I could climb Everest or something like a 46t for all around riding would be make a very nice 10 speed.

Can you PM me some information on this cassette.

I have a Dura Ace long cage derailleur. In the process of tuning it now with carbon cages, ti spring, alloy bolts, and carbon jockey wheels with ceramic bearings. I'll be using a 52/38 up front (fibre lyte) but don't expect to see the 52 in use at all. I considered going single ring up front, but don't want to disassemble the front end for one event.

The info for the cassette is here http://luckynino.blogspot.com/2009/03/1 ... sette.html

Mine came in at 175 grams... I thought it weighed more but I accidently weighed it with an 11th cog (it came with both a steel and titanium 11-tooth.)

New Ultimate Carbon handlebar 42cm...177g :thumbup: Seriously nice bars. They have a cool "internal" routing for the cables and have a nice shape.

http://fairwheelbikes.com/new-ultimate-carbon-handlebar-p-1623.html

These replace my Modolo Carbon bars (40cm, 207g), which were creased/pinched by the New Ultimate stem. The Modolo must be a little bigger than the 31.8 it claims to be. I've heard this happen before. Props though to Modolo. I've been riding these creased bars for about a week now. I know they are broke and luckily avoided any catastrophic failure. I just took it a little easier.

After the campy post above, my Yokozuna cableset and KMC chain pale in comparison.
