I think the only time my bibs get caught on anything is when im standing in a climb, or accelerating standing, and sit down too quickly and too low, and the front tip of the saddle pokes and tugs at the fabric under my ass.

I dont think u need to worry about the fabric tearing...

But usually, the more expensive bib will have the better fabric... it'll feel nicer against your skin, and maybe transfer moisture better.

Ie// straight lycra fabric has great compression, but leaves me feeling pretty damp, wet, and disgusting when im sweating like a pig. More advanced fabrics w/ different textures, fabric mixes will help transfer moisture outwards and allow the air to dry it etc.

Did a quickie ride up SFU today, it turned sunny I couldn't do yard work anymore. I opted for the cyclocross off-road decent route, because CAADX. I scared myself by not getting enough brake on top of the hoods, I had to use the drops in some sections!

haha, although I have a set of Conti's, I'm not going to break up the set. As for cash, I lack that.

Good luck on your sale!

Right. We know you have a 2013 Cannondale SuperSix Evo on order.

Any way, finished up some chores and decided to take the bike out for a stroll around town.

Cutting through Trout Lake and look what I see:
Spoiler!


So I took a detour and went backwards, up the street then down Victoria Drive past the community centre. I didn't want to ride over the grassy patch because it was like quick sand and I wasn't prepared to bail and to wash my bike again. Took the usual route on E. 10th ave and down the Central Valley Greenway. Went down False Creek and over the Burrard Bridge and took a short stop to enjoy the scenery at Roundhouse Community Centre.
Spoiler!


Went home and the end.

I thought about that but I find that white bar tape gets dirty very easily. But...we'll see.

Love em. Especially for the price. 1500'ish gram wheel set that's strong and well made for $300 or so is tough to beat. I haven't seen them pop up since azncreationz posted the deal but if you want them, Bikewagon.com and CompetitiveCyclist.com sell them for $350'ish (ask for price match!) with free shipping to Blaine/Point Roberts!

Edit: Nashbar.com has them for $315 but their shipping sucks. Ask Backcountry/Competitive Cyclist to price match!

My original set I had shipped to my place in LA because I took my bike down there for a month. The second set is also going there but I'm heading down there next week for a short visit.

I would suggest having the wheels shipped to Point Roberts or Blaine.

Quick update on the Conti 4000s,

The first stroke I took I noticed how much smoother they are compared to my old tires (vittatoria Rubino pro(?), I think), they also have much less rolling resistance while retaining a good degree of stickiness. I rode through some patches of damp pavement and I had zero issues in regards to twitchiness/slipping even when powering through it. The old tires were VERY twitchy, even in the dry.

The smoothness of the tires coupled with it's ability to also dampening things was refreshing. My old tires didn't dampen worth shit. The 4000s dampen enough without feeling dull.

A++ Would do business again. Although I want to see what bcrdukes' michelin pro3's are like compared to the conti 4000s.

You don't "sit" lower per se. The geometries on both bikes are different. The Synapse offers a more comfortable riding position whereas the CAAD bikes are much more aggressive. You can compare the geometries of both bikes on Cannondale's website. There are other differences such as frame weight and materials etc.

Don't just get a CAAD because everyone is riding one. You have to figure out and decide for yourself what type of riding you'll be doing and what you expect to get out of it? If it's just a stroll down the sea wall or a short jaunt around town with a group of buddies, the Synapse will be fine. If you want to make the most out of reaching some top speeds, go for the CAAD.

As an owner of a CAAD10, I find it undesirable to commute on it. Yes, it will get me from point A to B (like any bike should) but if I want to ride in my normal clothes, it is a pain in the ass.

Anyway, good choice on the Cannondale. Welcome to the club!

bcrdukes is spot on. take it from a guy who used to own a synapse - if you're just getting into riding you will not regret your purchase at all! It was my first road bike so it was ideal for me getting used to the riding position and form. As I got more committed I eventually changed up a lot of the cockpit to a more aggressive stance (-17' stem, slammed to the bearings) to make up for the taller headtube. The bike ended up looking kinda silly and I eventually caved and bought my current bike to get that position and an upgraded group set.

At Strada Cycles?

Yes! She is! (She's also the wife of the owner, Jason.)

Great couple and very friendly. Too bad they carry only very specific lines of gear and clothing (Campy and Assos.)
