Makes sense.Probably from their non-race bikes like Topstone and shit like that, and I'd love to have one. I'm sure the Palace/Rapha collaboration looks hip.
Ostro VAM frame only is 5499. If you want a complete bike its 10k+ that may not be expensive to you but for me it is.They are not expensive
A ultegra di2 bike with carbon wheels was almost the same price 7 years ago
The more bikes cost the less they have been effected by inflation. A dogma with carbon wheels and super record eps was $19k Canadian 9 years ago, the same bike is $20k today
In that same time an r3 ultegra has gone from $3500 to $6500
Pics of the Ostro? Didn’t even know those existed but they look awesome.I like mine. The Ostro was my mid-life crisis bike purchase, it's a little weird to be 41 and riding a legit pro tour bike, but it's super fun.
Thankfully I had the sense to NOT ride the Ostro last week when it was wet out and I ended up crashing and fracturing my pelvis.
I was riding my $500 Chinese open mold frame, which actually seems to not be broken.
Replace the chain when shifting is less than absolute perfection. Yes, change at .5 and measure at several places in the chain as stretch is inconsistent. I always remove links to get the right length that allows for my 52/36x11-32 set-up though I usually ride an 11-30.Sooo I have a dumb question. Do you always remove chain links to fit your set up?
Close to needing a new one and have a replacement 116L ready just felt like asking..
Edit: Should I replace when the .5 on the gauge clears?
i've never done a race, just training
i don't even use any of the "game" features. i barely even steer lolYeah, me neither, until recently. Had a long lunch break, and wandered into the 'event' section of the app, and saw a race was starting in 15 minutes, so I jumped in. Was way more fun than I expected. There was some actual strategy involved, a mid-ride breakaway, and a sprint finish. I won by like .4 seconds, and you could see the three of us hammering it out to the finish.
Prolly gonna do more.
