You truly need a pick up truck or large SUV to carry this thing around. I have an Audi S4 (A fairly standard size sedan these days.) and couldn't get it in with the back seats folded down.
I swapped two bikes to the newest SRAM Red 10-speed last year (Why have you forsaken me SRAM?!) and couldn't be happier with the performance. The new group is well thought out but the front derailleur and cassette are the stand outs of the litter.
The way the first generation "powerdome" cassette was engineered made it a defacto drum and the level of noise produced could be disarming to you and other riders. SRAM went out of their way to make this the quietest cassette known and it is. I love hearing the wurr of a well oiled chain and now I can.
These gloves are all about fashion and useless in temperatures below 45F. I've ridden with them twice when temps are in the low to mid 30s and warming. Both times I had "meatcicles" for fingers until the temps got well into the 40s. I'm not into suffering for fashion and these are not worth the high price of entry into the Assos club.
