Default Re: Cycling anyone?


At 6'6" height and 260 pounds (~122 kg) hills and I never seem to agree, well at least not on the upside! I use Campy Chorus (2004) brakes and they seem to do a nice job when they have to (I rarely use them unless it is REALLY necessary). They have allowed me to stand my bike on the front wheel at 20+ mph so I think they grab strongly enough for me!

When I built my bike I spec'd everything for strength, not weight, the only thing that was a weight savings were the carbon fiber bars, but they are also stronger than aluminum bars...
