That's certainly compelling evidence of the hazardous nature of IE, and Microsoft products, in general. I'd quit using IE entirely, except that there are a few people on my list who are still alive. But when they're gone, I'll quit, really I will!
It's spectacular. I'm doing sub-3hr centuries confortably and hitting 50kmh on the flats is not a problem.
I'm not a fan of Giant. They have a great story when it comes to how they make their frames, but they've never grabbed me. I tried the Giant Propel (competitor to the Cervelo S5) and while it was lighter (The S% is heavy) it was creaky (on a brand new bike) and was seriously knocked about in the wind. Others who have had Giant liked them, but also liked moving on to a better bike.
Trek, on the other hand, are more mainstream, factory produced, but their Domane is a fantastic bike if you want comfort with a little speed. I've seen a number of riders here in Tronno on them and enjoying them. Great value for money.
Get carbon if you can over alloy. Far more comfortable. Stiff yet compliant.
Argon are great for the price. A guy in our cycling group has one and swears by it, and he is seriously fast.
Now: what about wheels? Enve tubulars or some Easton 90 clinchers?
Just give me your credit card and I'll go shopping for you. Trust me - it'll be easier.
you get an absolute pounding on the potholed roads in Toronto
I got that earlier this year, riding The Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure[^]. We were in Holmes and Coschocton counties, which have a lot of hills and a sizable Amish population. The Amish population means horse and buggies on back country roads, and the buggy wheels shred the asphalt. That, in combination with last year's hellfest winter, made for a very rough ride. I'm probably going to be replacing the front wheel on my bike at the end of the season this year .
