Yeah, I haven't gotten around to disc brakes yet either. It gets expensive when you're into it. The Rocky in the pics has run me about $1600 so far, would have been around 2 grand were it not for eBay. Then there's Rooz & his bro with the $1000 bikes . . . people don't think much about bikes, and when they hear how much you've spent on one, they think you're out of your fricken mind!
Triathlons? I'm impressed, that shit is no joke, man. I also run 15mi per week, but tri's are out of the question for me . . . I can't swim
