Rank, in order of priority for you for your primary bike and components, the following (1 being highest priority):

cost
comfort/fit
durability
function
aero
weight
appearance
exclusiveness

How and why have your priorities changed over the years?

For me, right now:

1 comfort/fit
2 function
3 appearance
4 durability
5 weight
6 cost
7 aero
8 exclusiveness

This is for my "new" main bike, a 1998 steel Bianchi Alloro, celeste, all Record, Nucleon wheels -- 18.2 pounds complete.

I've done the weight weenie, desireability, and aero thing, too. I can change on a whim, and tomorrow it could change again.
