If anyone is interested, I have a Kurt Kinetic Road Machine trainer for sale w/ riser ring and mat.

Asking $400 for everything on CL, but PM me and we can work something out. Apartment is just too small for me to have this set-up in there.

FS: Kurt Kinetic Road Machine Trainer (w/ mat and front wheel circle)

No. Stayed home with the kids. It was actually the Vets Sunday Ride. I read on FB group and few of the CVC guys told me about it. Kinda sucks cause some didn't stop to check out the accident and just kept on going with the usual route. I guess fast paced ride + strong winds will result into accidents. Hope those guys are OK though.

So... lots of snow where I am now.

I ended up fatbiking for the first time at a fun bike relay event. Damn, it's hard to bike on snow.

Any of you guys owned a Cervelo S2 before?

Is it commonplace for the area on the front fork, the face of the fork where the brake is mounted to, to have a paint chip around where it makes contact?

It looks either like it was tightened too much, or some sort of common paint flaw.

I googled it, and saw other owners of the same generation experience the same. It's a 2011 s2.

Any other things to look out for on this generation of the s2?

I haven't had a chance to attend the bike shows before.. But did volunteer a few hours at the small one during the fondos weekend.

I may go, if it's not too expensive lol.


Picked me up a 2011 Cervelo S2 with full sram red!!! I'll post some photos tomorrow

I'll be selling some components off of the bike as it doesn't fit me.

If anyone wants..
3T carbon ergo handlebars 38cm
3T arx pro stem 90mm 6degree
Fizik arione (black w red stripe down the middle)

Thing is like brand new. The gentleman pretty much didn't ride it!

Slick ride. Its a decent mid end wheelset away from being a total rocket. Probably weighs in the mid to high 16 lb range with pedals?

Basically the successor to my slc-sl. I hope you don't ever have to change inner gear cables on your own. It took me 2-3 hours to thread the cables internally where they need to go, and the slc-sl has more reasonable cable routing based on what I've read. Makes me strongly consider Di2 so I don't have to think about those cables in my nightmares.

senseazn: i was able to score a good deal, that's all that i'll reveal for those who know, pls keep a zip on it! hah.

UFO: i dont think i'll be changing the cables and housing myself... once i decide on and get a new handlebar, i'm going to have the derailleur cables redone b/c they look terri'bad right now. they stick super high and ridiculous style lol.

If you're talking about the gear cables looping near the stem not sure you can do too much about that, maybe just tighten it up a touch. Too much would add friction to the shifter cables and make your high end shifting sluggish. I've seen some s2 and s5 setup with cables running right along the stem and making a tight bend into the top tube... it looks slick but I doubt if it will perform well over especially over time. Another check for Di2

Flipped stem, lowered bar height 4cm, installed my cadence sensor/garmin, and put my old fizik saddle on. Matches better now.
