I picked up a Ultegra cassette for my road wheels. Seems similar to the 105 on my cross wheels except it uses plastic spacers between gears to save some weight

Like you ordered a Large instead of Medium? Pls elaborate
Yeah, I ordered one size larger than what I order locally. I got an XL top and bib instead of L (based on jersey's from Castelli)

Ref: 184cm, medium built, size 32 waist.

What about sizing, are they pretty close to North American sizings?

I hope I'm understanding your question correctly but take my word for it - trust their sizing chart as you see on the vendor's page. The fit is slightly more towards the "North American" sizing and not compression tight (i.e. Pearl Izumi) but if you start comparing to Castelli or Rapha - no way. Don't even use them as a baseline because the Europeans cut their sizes for a tighter and slimmer fit.

This cassette alone is selling for $120 at MEC. Couldn't resist and picked up a set for myself. Now the Fondo will be a bit easier.

edit: Don't tell me it's not Dura-Ace. I know. The weight savings is only 30g, while the Ultegra will last twice as long.

I've owned both Sidi motorcycle boots and bike shoes. I don't believe in the whole "size up" Internet advice. In my own experience, it does not work.

Sidi has different profiles for shoes and their boots. If the shoe/boot doesn't have a weird name or size to it (i.e. Mega etc.) you can assume it is a slim European fit (catered to Europeans/white people - sorry not trying to be racist or offensive etc.)

I'm a size 9US regular shoe. My Sidi Vertigo Air motorcycle boots are a 43 Euro and it's too big length wise. Width is too small because I have a wide toe box. Had I known (because I'm a moron) I should have bought their mega size which is a wide toe box.

As for cycling shoes, I've had the Sidi Terra T2 (Cx/MTB shoe) Sidi Nevada (entry level budget as hell road shoe) and now the Sidi Genius Carbon 5. I sized down to a 42.5 thinking I could use the extra space but no - it eventually stretches out and now there's a slight gap in the toe box length wise. In terms of the toe box, it was sorta tight at first but now it molded to my feet and it works. Had Sidi offered a mega size in that shoe, I would have bought a 42 (roughly a size 9US.)

Your experience may vary so just keep that in mind and get sized properly. Each and every manufacturer is different. My Gaerne's are a size 42.5 and they fit perfectly.

as others, i can say my experience whether its for fitting or just bike servicing, i've had nothing but top notch service from john @ pms. thorough explanation, took his time, gave me options or what i needed. turnaround time was good and just felt like he cared for his customers and his business. not just trying to brush anyone off and tries to fit me in to his schedule and mine.

Yep doing the Fondo. Goal this year is to complete it. Hopefully next year I'll be able to set a time and aim for that.

^ dont stress over it. process time is 1-5 days usually before it even gets sent out.

expect to receive it within 30-45 days.

Just b/c a few of us received goods within 7-10 days doesnt mean that it happens every single time

I really didn't want to do this but the Argon 18 is up for sale.

If anybody is interested, please PM me. Ad is up on Craigslist but contact me to work out a price. I am also willing to part out the frame itself. Thanks!
