Carbonation...(1 post)

Oct 28, 2003 3:04 AM
I'm in the process of acquiring a new carbon fiber frame (my first)... and intend to slap enough carbon components on it to qualify it as a life form.

While my budget isn't limitless, I'd like to hear and see suggestions for carbon components (bars, saddles, cranks, etc). I've got a few pair of carbon cranks (ZIPP, FSA and Weyless) and have been happy with 'em but aside from these, carbon forks and aerobars, I don't have a lot of experience with the material (frame comes with a full carbon fork and seatpost).

I'm interested in some of the aero/ergo handlebars now coming on the market (pricey but schweeeet like FSA and Stella Azzure) or stems... bottle cages... perhaps even the gruppo itself (Campy carbon ders/shifters might be an option). Already got CF wheels, but could be talked into more...

So, give me suggestions (and links if possible) to satisfy my jones for all things with a good... weave. Don't let me go... flat.

Be the bike.
