that's a close call... I assume you're talking stock components.. the cervelo had Ultegra and the felt has 105... so IDK if 6 year old ultegra is any better than more recent 105 stuff... probably a toss up.

the stock wheels on both are a toss up as well... neither are particularly light, ritchey on the cervelo, not sure on the felt.

I'd see what the frame wieght is on both of them and pick the lighter of the two. Hopefully it's the felt, because I'd lean towards the newer frame also.
Plus Cervelo is so passe now..

Well the Felt actually has Ultegra rear. The Cervelo just has bontrager wheels. Other than those, they have stock components. I think I'm going to go with the Felt though.

I would be most concerned with which one fit the best with the understanding a stem is an easy replacement.

My wife writes a blog about trying to recapture elements from your youth after you get married. She wrote one about bikes and I thought I'd share.

New purchase.

The rear tire is for a trainer, and I am going to be putting the stock handlebars back on.

So, I went to Hong Kong and got a new spoke fitted and had the wheel trued. While that was going on I had lunch. I went back, bought a spare spoke, just in case, checked the repair, paid my US$20 and left. But, oh the tears!

I was on the bus fron Shenzhen to Zhuhai when I got an email; "Dear HoRo, thanks for coming etc etc" The people in the shop were very friendly and the shop itself was almost literally overflowing with Giants and Pinarellos.

The second email, a few minutes later..."Dear HoRo, we are sorry...>please click here to see rest of email<
Sorry that we overcharged you and would like to offer you store credit for your next visit? My hopes were up!

"Dear HoRo, we are sorry to tell you that we have your skewer"
WTF?
I open the wheel bag, look, feel...no skewer. I spent the next hour of the bus ride under a very black cloud plotting ways to kill somebody very slowly and very painfully.

Its not the US$50 the day cost me, its the fact that I left my apartment at 6AM and got back 8 ****ing hours later still not able to ride my bike. 8 hours I can never get back.

Not really sure what this is?? I don't really think it is a crack.

The weird thing is I saw it on another Felt bike too.

You mean the scratches in the paint? That usually happens from your chain hitting the rearstay

just a sticker to prevent the chain from hitting directly on the frame when you go over big bumps or if the chain falls off. They come on many bikes. They also use them for where the cable housing touches the frame to prevent it from rubbing on the frame and rubbing off the paint

Its called chain slap. The tape quiets the bike and protects the paint. Lots of ways to protect it from stickers to neoprene sleeves.

I'm looking for decent chain lock to secure my $500 commuter bike in Chicago. I was thinking about this one
Amazon.com: OnGuard Beast 5017 Bicycle Chain Lock: Sports & OutdoorsAmazon.com: OnGuard Beast 5017 Bicycle Chain Lock: Sports & Outdoors
but it is in my upper price limit. Could you recommend me something better or cheaper?

Quick release skewer? Remove front wheel, and use this to lock bike + wheels.

I already have this one but it limits me to very few bike racks and sucker poles. With chain I could lock the bike to street/traffic light poles, hydrants, some larger trees ect.
My wheels have bolt-on hubs.

gotcha. yeah those seem to be your cheapest option. I get along fine in NY with just a U lock. Then again my bike isnt left alone for more than a few hours at most.

I had meant to go for a long overdue MTB ride this morning, but woke up to find that it had rained overnight. Again.


I was over at some friend's house this evening and complaining about how I need to buy another road bike for such eventualities, and they asked "you want the one in the garage?"



Early '90's Bianchi Veloce with Campy components. Needs tires and a thorough tune-up, maybe a longer stem, but will clean up nicely!
