I don't know why people gripe about the shifting with the Ti cage... I finish every climb sur la plaque and while the upshift to the big ring under power isn't quite as worry free as with Di2, I have yet to drop a chain or miss a shift with my red group. I will say though, that if you're using a light lube, the sound of the chain grinding on Ti gives me a nails-on-a-chalk-board-esque shudder up my spine. But as I was putting it on I was holding my red derailleur in one hand and my old ultegra one in the other, and wow was it lighter!

I can't believe this hasn't been made earlier, popped it on my 7 year old dura ace 7700 FD works like magic, no more dropped chains on bumpy roads. and it looks pretty cool too, the red matches my frame nicely. seems a little pricey for something i probably could have had the school metal shop make for me for free in college

These bibs are hot, order a size or 2 up, they're really tight cut, I'm usually a L in pearlizumi shorts, I got the XL in these, and I could have probably filled out the XXL enough for them to stay in place, but these fit like a second skin, super comfortable and the white side panels look hawt

Update:
the XXLS were only taller above the waist, the inseam in the shorts was exactly the same. Took them on a 60 miler in 90 degree heat, and they were great, got lots of compliments on the group ride, they stay in place and i've never been happier with any piece of cycling kit, i just ordered the the gavia ones from bonktown to give myself some options. for a sizing reference i'm 6'0 with a 32 inseam

Tried the Chocolate, they taste good. Popped one before each big climb on my usual ride, finished strong, and recovered better than ever. They go right in your jersey pocket, and they don't melt, I tried them on a 92 Degree day and they were fine. Just make sure that you wash them down with plenty of fluids. Only downside is that at $3/baggie they're not cheap...

Bought it to replace my lance edition Pneumo that developed a crack over the last 7 years. 98 miles into a century, with a low psi back tire I crashed. This helmet saved me from what surely would've otherwise been at least a concussion, and better yet RealCyclist is replacing it for me! It's super comfortable and it fits so well, stayed in place perfectly while my sunglasses got tossed about 20 feet by the impact.
