Well it certainly feels like a whole new bike! The off season is the perfect time to experiment with different equipment and riding positions. First thing you may notice is my new PowerTap rear wheel. This is the game changer. I've heard it a dozen and a half times, "...if you're not training with power, you're just not training." so now it's game on. I scored the wheel from my friend Joe from HOC. This PowerTap SL+ hub laced to ZIPP 404 clincher responds flawlessly and looks sleek. Although it did take quite a while to get the hub changed from Shimano to Campy, it was well worth the wait.
I was trying out a used pair of Speedplay Zero pedals and cleats but took them off after a week of riding. Maybe if they were not used, (and at one time broken) the pedals might have been smoother and more comfortable. Though I did like the float it gave my foot, I didn't like how difficult it was to clip in and out. At times I wasn't sure if I was clipped in or not. Besides, I love the sound my Time RXS pedals make when you clip in (SNAP!) and I have never had any problems with them. I was just trying out options that were available to me.
Efficiency is everything.
