Hey guys, I'm moving to LA in a few days from the Inland Empire and ready for change. Any of you guys ride out there? What's it like as far as the terrain and streets (smooth ...

Between the Max 2 carbon and classic keo, I believe the platform is considerably larger which definitely makes a difference.

What about the LOOK Keo Max 2 carbon? I'm interested in those. Know or hear of any or the same problems you had?

Are the streets of Hawaii really that bad?

Out of that list of forks, the only one that would be proper for your bike is the Leader fork since it's made for a track bike. In my opinion, I wouldn't put a road fork on your...

I'd say Crafigslist and eBay for sure. Sometimes you can find people who post stuff for sale on CL in other cities and states that are willing to ship. Are you building up a ste...

@nightstalker That spindle noise is probably from the bearings or axles. I hear that if you upgrade to a titanium aftermarket spindle in conjunction with ceramic bearings, you'l...

That's a question of preference. You'll notice that a lot of people here on pedalroom have their stems slammed, meaning their steerer tube is cut leaving just enough space for t...

Yes. The increase in number between chainring and cog means you'll push harder. For example, a 47:17 ratio will be easier to ride versus a 47:13 ratio. The further away the c...

Thanks you guys. You have all been a great help. Looks like I'll be going with the Superstar. I think that'll pair up nicely with a ZEN and super toughness chain, yeah?

Mktng - That's why I'm looking into the Izumi V Brembilla - I see your point about the cog, and when it's appropriate for use. But don't you think it will take a lot time and m...

I agree with you completely, but I'm simply talking about the coating issue with the cog and nothing about strength validation of NJS products. I'm not interested in the ceramic...

Okay, so you're saying the cog is only good because of the coating, and that after it wears down it's no good anymore? Come on dude. That obviously isn't true.

Thanks for the replies. Kinda bummed if it will truly take that long to ship though. It seems like everyone online is sold out of the gold medal pro cog. And if they do have it,...

Maybe not though. They ship by air.

Do you think they're worth the money or is it more susceptible to damage or break?

Anyone know about the Sugino 75 ceramic bb available on tracksupermarket.com? I came across it a while ago, but I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about it. Is the fact that...

I'd definitely go for some Mavic Open Pro's or H+Son TB-14's or Archetypes. Even some Velocity Aeroheads. You can't go wrong with Formula hubs either. Most people go with Formul...

Not only that, but they aren't the easiest frames to find.
