Are the cleats for Xpresso the same as iClic cleats? When was the last time that iClic cleats changed (were improved)?

Edit: This doesn't answer the questions above, but I found this, which has the information card at the Time display:
http://forum.tour-magazin.de/attachment ... 1346260915" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I removed the image tag because it is big.


Yup, you can see iClic2 cleats mounted here: http://www.bikerumor.com/2012/09/09/time-hopped-up-on-new-xpresso-road-pedals-prototype-disc-brake-fluidity-road-bike-more/

AFAIK the last revision of the iClic cleat was when the iClic2 was released. 2000 miles+ one these cleats with almost no wear so it looks like the old issues have been sorted.

It will be interesting to see whether with the Xpresso, Time finally gets the "iClic" right, as there have been a number of complaints with iClics even with the iClic2. Meanwhile, I will continue to ride my RXS Carbon Ti pedals unless/until I hear favorable reports on the Xpresso.

I've had no issues with my iClic2 pedals, in fact they've been great. I can't wait to get a pair of the Xpresso Carbons though (throw the iClic2 on the winter bike) so I'll report back with impressions.

Strange frame aside... which is a given: it's weird and looks like a dog having a shit.

Anyway, that drivetrain is this:
StringBike

Easton has a 42mm 1660g alloy/carbon wheelset, but that is the closest that I have seen. http://velonews.competitor.com/2012/08/ ... t/p1070738

Just me, or was there a bit of a lack of a real 'show stealer' in terms of what was dished up this year?

A complicated way to get the benefits of ovalized chain rings, as far as I can see.

Yes, for me it was underwhelming. Nothing jumped out to get me excited.

The Cannondale Spiderings (it bothers me there isn't a second R in there...) are indeed forged, Praxis-style.

I'm still waiting on prices, weights, other options etc. But it'll all be up when I do get everything.

Caley

To clarify to everyone - The center/spider area of the Spidering is forged....NOT the teeth and shifting features. The teeth and shifting features are all cnc'd like their prior generation rings and virtually all other rings in the market.

The Praxis rings are Cold Forged all as one, and in One Shot. The shape, the shifting features, and all the tooth profiles. The primary reason we forge is to get the detailed and complex tooth profiles and shifting features. The added benefit of the forging is we get a harder tougher tooth for durability.

Just wanted to clarify for everyone,
