Thing felt like a fragile, plastic toy. It was an easy, one-finger lift too. It had Storck Stiletto forks, THM Clavicula cranks, AX-Lightness saddle and some wierd, spindle-only pedals???? What is that?

I just received my Rue and I'm sure it's a lot heavier, but it feels very sturdy and very well made. I'm excited to build it up.

I know several people that will only ride the Aerolite's and swear by them. I thought about a set, but decided on something with a larger platform

That's a tank compared to Don Becker's Rue which I had the pleasure of meeting @ the Berkeley Hills Road Race this year.

But I agree light bikes lack the "bomb-proof" feel of a good steel bike. Which is why I like riding my Ritchey Breakaway so much. I save the carbon for racing.

Wouldn't there be a higher probabily of crashing in a race?

One thing to remember about Aerolite pedals is they have ZERO float. Your shoe is fixed in exactly one place on the spindle. No rotation at all. My brother had a set of Aerolite pedals awhile ago. He does not like float and now uses the non-floating cleat on his SPD-SL pedals. For me, I have to have float on one of my feet.

It was most likely Victors: http://fairwheelbikes.com/forum/viewtop ... =49&t=2955 The pedals are M2racer and are my favorite pedals.
