Osaka is FLAT compared to my home-town and as much as I love my All-City the maximum chainring clearance is 44t. . Wanted something light, stiff and nimble for flat (pothole free) roads and traffic. Not Disappointed.

Current Stage Info:
I loved the Direct drives but I think Sugino needs to rethink the NDS arm pinch bolt design, couldn't for the life of me get rid of a clicking sound. Either that or I got a dud set. Went with Regular 75s. Never looking back.
Also got a huge discount on some Alpha Doubles. Love the convenience of not having to wear clipless shoes on shorter rides.
