Bottomless CL Day!
Sick deals back to back all day long.
umm, can we please get this up again
Anyone have any experience with these? I have never owned one.
Ladies this is really nice stuff :)
The sizing is just as it states, I am a size 36 and it is states to order a medium ~ it fit perfectly.
So I ordered this one also.
I have riden the EA90s aeros and you or whoever you convinced to buy them will be very pleased. They are stiff, and aero, and fairly light so you can feel it when you jump to sprint. Freewheel is a bit noisey but that just keeps you from slacking off in the group rides. Best thing is that they are really all purpose. You can use them for TTs, training, road racing, and crits.
Hey The Chief,
I'm glad we were helpful (maybe). You should post pics - here or over on goingprepared so I can drool.
Do you have the bike or is it just ordered?
I've heard the SRAM rival stuff is great, especially adjustable for small hands (not really a problem for you, I'm sure)... I've switched to sram chains & casettes on my setup. Cranks and wheels are all things you can upgrade later.
I convinced someone to buy the ea90's off here, but I haven't had a chance to try them out (no casette on them)
The bike came with Fulcrum 7 clinchers. I have heard nothing but good about these wheels as a training wheel but they are heavy. I am used to a pretty light wheel so sluggish acceleration really bothers me even if it isn't hurting my performance.
My brother has some EA90s from CL. I am going to give those a try for comparison and report back.
The crank is a standard Rival that seems good. But the vanity in me wants to slap on carbon crank like a Red crankset or Fulcrum Racing Torq RS.
I missed the 36, but it was cool to see it up there. Maybe you can dig up a Float 36 and pair it up with a 6.6 or El Guapo? :)
Yeah - I'm a CL ho.
Congratulations! Nothing like that new-bike smell.
I've always liked Look's bikes.
What wheels did it come with? I run no-nonsense Dura Ace / Mavic Open Pro's for 99% of my riding - reliable, light-ish, and affordable. Race wheels have no place for day-to-day riding around here.
Then I have my stupid-light race wheels that sit in my snazzy Serfas wheel bag (thanks CL) for most of the year.
As for cranks - if you don't mind going a little retro (ISIS BB) - you can't beat the CL deal on the Zipps. I dropped 200g off my FSA carbon crankset when I put those suckers on.
Congrats on the new bike duder. I have the SRAM Rival on my Scott USA and I swear by it. There will be some Quintana Roo Tri bikes sometime in the future.
My 100th post, wow I am awesome!
Thanks to all who chimed in on my bikes sizing question for the Look 566. Nonny, the Baron, Cat, and Forkboy. All good stuff.
I picked my self up a Look 566 yesterday in Size 57 (XL). Seems the seat tube angle information I left out made the 57 Look 566 size more like a 56 Specialized Roubaix. The seat tube angle on the Look was 73.7 versus 73.2 on the Specialized. Acknowledging Forkboys don't but anything you can ride first philosphy I am a bit nervous and will provide a full report of the bike including pictures when I get it all setup.
I got it with the 2009 SRAM Rival build, heavy Crank and wheels will have to go though.
I wanted the Ultegra SL but my dealer actually told me unless I wanted a Red bike the 09' Rival is actually better that the Ulte. SL and was $500 less. After reading this months bicycling magazine review of the Rival I am pretty pumped to try the group out.
Grant, I will still me looking for smoking deals in 09 though. Did you know if any TT or Tri frames will find their way on Chanilove the next couple months?
Me want! Very nice CL.
