I have my bike with all Ultegra 6800 components, except for the Shifters, I´m running 105. I don´t feel my gears as crisp and smooth everybody claims for the 6800´s series. Am I missing something here? Do I need the Ultegra shifters for the complete system to work at his best or my 105´s should do the work (in that case my index or tunning must be wrong)? Thanks for any advice or comment.

I made the upgrade from Shimano 105, along with the cassette and the chain. And I feel a better response on the shifters. The Ultegra cassette helps on shaving off some weight too. The sale on this components are great. I could nt find a better price anywhere else. I hope the next generation of Ultegra comes with the actual DurAce design.

Best wheelset for your money.

With a lightweight construction, simple design and aluminum durability, it´s hard to find a better option for a pair of wheels. At 1450 g, they´re very light, even against carbon wheels.
My Specialized Tarmac lost 0.6 kg (1.2 lb). So far, so good. Thanks to Mike Nelson for helped me decide.

I like my bibs to be as simple as possible. The black scheme with a couple crafts logos make it up to me. Very comfortable and I really like the fabrics.
With that price I would look no more for 2-4 hrs rides. Unless, you´re looking for something for really cold weathers or aero purposes, buy this.
For reference, I´m 5´8¨, 158 lbs, size small fit perfect. If you´re taller up to 3 inches more I think that size fit you. If you´re heavier go for the medium.

I bought this a year ago.
The shoes are comfortable, lightweight for the price and the boa system is ok (just ok).
If you´re on a budget (less than $100) look no more. The design is very clean.
More than 2000 km on this pair and no signs of wearing.
One note, usually I´m 9 (US) on Nike and New Balance sneakers, but on this I bought a pair of 10 (US)

Just a few tweaks away from perfect!

I bought this watch in the USA to use in my country: Costa Rica, central America. My older watch was a Garmin FR70, so you could imagine how big the improvement was.
The design, size and material are just right for me. Solid black and lightweight.
From the beginning the functions, display and configuration very straight forward.
My favorite feature is the built in HR sensor. No need for additional straps or accesories. Eventhough I not completely sure how accurate it is during my cycling training sessions. Sometimes the monitor seems to be erratic. Nothing mayor to worry about it.
The only problems I had is sometimes the pairing with my mobile Garmin Connect have some issues, and date/time misconfigures because it lost the gps connection.
So, if Garmin manage to update the software of the watch and Connect App I´m sure this is the perfect sport watch.
Highly recommend it.

Love this jacket! Great fit, comfortable, waterproof, wind protection.

The fabrics are warm, but not sticky warm. And the details are very cool: zippers, vents, colors.

on rainy days, 12-22 celsius degrees use it with a summer jersey or baselayer and you´re good to go.
