Interested to hear how the combination EEbrakes and powercordz work, looking to run the same but still on the fence if I'll use powercordz

I didn't get to ride yesterday. I may be able to ride Monday or the latest Wed. Just pumping the brakes sitting still they feel 1000 times better than the Red Brakes on standard cables.

I installed the Toronto Cycles bowties on my Speedplay Zeros. The TC bowties are half the weight of the stock ones. Note: my left pedal has the 85mm spindle. Gotta love fit issues!

at some point you need to stop changing things and just ride it... I thought I was bad.

I know N+1 all too well... but I didn't say ride... "ride it" as in ride this BMC.. looks at those tires(brand new) super prestine chain. no water bottle condensation run off down the downtube.... you get the ideal. Anyways nice bike, you have dropped some good weight on it and yeah I'm waiting for some feedback on EEs/Swift cabling too. I really didn't like EE/Aican combo for the rear myself so I'm wondeing if powercords are worth it for me. I'm using Aican for the front EE...but stock SRAM for the rear still.

I'm also interested in a review of the FSE wheels.

The jury is still out. So far the postives are: they are fast, it generates speed really quick, nice and light, super stiff, and they look great. Negatives are: the brake pads suck and they squeel like a banshee!

I ordered the following in the past few days:

- Zipp Tangente Cork - These are my first full carbon wheels. I plan on trying a bunch of different pads. Recommendations welcomed.
- EE Cycleworks Top Nut/Cap - I lost one of the "walls" on my Extralite Expander. I will weigh both when it comes in.
- Chinese 9g Bottle Cages - These are half the weight of the Sl Speeds that I have. Savings will be around 18 grams.

- Berk Composites Dila Padded - I have the 152mm Pro Stealth which is about 210 grams. I should save 100 grams with the Dila.

I really like the Swiss Stop yellow pads on my Lightweights

For the FSE the Campy red pads are the best. I wouldn't bother with cork.
