well the thing is i'm riding a 54cm but I'm only 5'5" so I'm all ready pretty stretched out. thanks for the advice though. new ideas always help
How about a double or compact crank? (Unless, of course, you live in a really hilly area where you need the little chainring)
That could save you a lot - looks like a 105 Triple, so changing out to a double/compact could probably save you 400-500 grams if you got carbon (ie FSA, although their carbon compacts are flexxxy.)

He said in order to race i need a triple crankset because my bike does not have compact geometry...? although i might have misunderstood, he might have been saying i need either a triple or a compact crank, in which case your idea would work perfectly.
Hey, I'm Jon, Im friends with John (ventoux) and I live in Oakland. Nice to see another junior and another person from the bay area.
Are you planning on racing a lot this year? If so ill see you out there. (I ride a silver caad 8, record, and im on Tieni Duro)
As far as the bike, I think the guy at the LBS means that the biggest gear you can have is a 52/14. for junior gears.

Not to hijack Greg's thread, but hopefully earlybirds is going good. Yeah, we should plan something for TOC.
