    That really stinks!! Hopefully, someone from this forum lives in that area and can spread the
    word about the stolen bikes. Hope they get their bikes back soon.

    "Singer Sheryl Crow climbed Alpe d’Huez in 1 hour 37 minutes." Now, that is pretty incredible!!
    Wish I was able to do that!

    Quick Update:Just for kicks, I went to my LBS today and tried out the Shimano 105 11 speed set.
    Thought it was cool, but the shifting system really did not "speak to me" in a way that
    inspires me to c...

    Very nice scenery! Thought I recognized that! If you have a chance, check out the Old Rag
    Mountain hike. It is pretty long and intense, includes a rock scramble and nice views for the

    Thanks everyone for your thoughts and insights. In discussing this with you and thinking a bit

    10 speed ...

    Hi:The Ultegra was, unfortunately, $500 more than the 105 set. My poor wallet cannot deal with
    that right now :( My current Ultegra is functioning great with no issues at all....and cables,
    etc are we...

    Thanks John! Interested in upgrading because shifting is much cleaner and crisper. I tried the
    11 speed and observed that the STI Lever only had to move a short distance for gear changes to
    occur. Wit...

    Hi:Wanted to know if anyone uses a Shimano 105 11 speed groupset? If so, what do you think of
    the shifting and feel of the groupset? My Trek Madone 4.5 has a 4 year old Ultegra shifting
    system and my ...

    Usually just water along with Scratch Labs Exercise drink mix added to the water. Everything
    else ends up in my Bell brand storage bag attached to the bike.

    I'm surprised no one was eating Dunkin Doughnuts or Krispy Kremes. I've been guilty of drinking
    cappuccinos during recent rides :)
