    Whats up Altamirians...LOL

    So I ordered a couple trinkets. I did end up getting the KMC X10SL DLC 2.0 chain.

    My Thoughts:
    It's not worth the $$ for the advertised weight savings, if you already have a stock KMC chain.

    Stock chain = 247g
    X10SL out the box = 253g (Advertised weight was 241g)
    X10SL length adjusted(8 links removed) 231g

    So, was 16g worth $90, No, but it is a great looking chain, For me has both Show and Go, so its a Keeper :-). Also got my lady the the Pink lady edition for her WSD GT bike, some pink camo bar tape, and a pair of Schwalbe Ultremo-ZX Evo tires in pink...

    Fire...! I like the shallow Cosmics too, didn't know they had those. I think my next set of wheels will be tubulars... maybe Mavic R-Sys SLR or SSC Tubulars

    And I'm back to near square one, well for a few more days, waiting for the Park Press tool HHP-3...

    So I did get the 2014 FSA K-forces, only thing, they were not compatible with the rotor 4130 bottom bracket I had installed. So I bought the tools so I can do it myself.

    I have the FSA BB386evo adapter bottom bracket, which FSA guaranteed to work...

    I noticed that the FSA bb housing is much deeper that the Rotor(enduro) I wonder, if the bearing life will be increased, since the way they achieved being able to stuff a 30mm spindle in the 41mm BB86 shell was to use two rows of smaller bearings so that the BBcup and bearing are an all in-one opposed to being separate... guess I'll find out soon enough, wish me luck that this will work, next stop will be Dura-Ace 7950...

    Well I did it finally near road ready, press tool came today, did't take much to set it up, grease everything and press in the new FSA 386 BB86 adapter BB. I did make one exception, didn't use the inner sleeve, the Park BB30 bearing removal tool doesn't fit thru it, if I ever wanted to change/services the BB I would be able to get it out. Other than that the cranks are in and spinning freely. Now to put the rest of the bike back together...LOL

    Been Quiet in Here...?

    Everybody must live in a part of the country where you can be out riding... I've snuck in a day here and there between all the snow and ice, but nothing consistent. So its pretty much left me with too much time on my hands to reassess my bike and shop for more stuff...LOL

    Speaking of which, Performance Bike had one of thos2 killer 20% off sales and with my 10% team discount, points I alread had accumulated, and my 3.5% ebates, all of my savings combinded were to good to pass up the opportunity. my final cost was about $1200, not bad for a set of $2300 wheels.

    So I pick up a paire of 2013 Zipp 303 firecrest tubulars. In all the spare time that I've had ive been reading up on how much more tubulars can offer a more plush ride dispite being stiffer and able to ride at a much higher PSI.

    I'll be picking them up this upcoming Sat. Also bought a pair of Vittoria Evo Corsa CX III tubular tires.

    Oh, and for my birthday I got a new pair of shoes...Vittoria Hora Evo's in flouresent yellow

    Gonna do the tubulars myself, with my busy schedule, it should take about a week,

    Will update with Pix ltr...

    until then... happy cycling all...

    My 29 lb Altamira

    Finished my longest ride so far. 253 miles, 400k. Took 17 1/2 total hours on my Fuji. My Altamira held up better then I did.

    Zipps almost Ready... Took off the stock stickers and will be adding borderless Matte Black...

    On another note, I went on a touring ride on Sunday. My-o-my the stiffness of the 2014 FSA K-Force light cranks really put more power to the ground with its beefy 30mm spindle, I just need to get my legs up to par to really show it...LOL Loving the added stopping power of the FSA brakes too, I just hope they open up enough to fit the width of these zip wheels...

    Thanks I replaced the stock white bar tape with black Zipp service course tape and padding under that. My hands felt better after 400k then with the thin stock tape after 200k. Same goes for my new Cobb seat. I can't say that it was exactly comfortable after 400k, but better then the stock seat after 200k. Other than that, it's all stock and going to need a new chain soon. There is a 600k next month and I may try aero bars to give me one more position to work with long the way

    Nice, Our bikes were dam near twins, Until I modded it all out. Curious, your bike is a 2012 3.0, mine is a 2013 2.0 LE, but has the exact same color scheme... what does your frame say, C4 or C5 carbon?

    It was a lil nippy out, but got a good 30+ miler in... took this a breaktime... Loving the new ZIPPs, even in some moderate cross/head winds , didn't feel as though I had to death grip the bars...

    Its C4. And good news, winter finally losing its grip here in MN. Just have to wait on the roads to get clear/cleaned up, and little bit warmer temps. Probably will get more snow tho. Took the Altamira off the trainer today. Picked up this bike yesturday and now have it on the trainer. Figure its ok to post it here as ASI owns both brands.

    Ok, I was curious about the carbon labeling, I got my bike from Performance as their LE (Limited Edition) I just figured they took a 2012 and changed a couple parts. When I took the bike in for a fitting I noticed that the frame said C5 carbon, I asked them did they realize that the product ad said C4, still does. They said it's C4, but when they looked at the frame they were dismayed that it said C5... Luck me, I guess...

    Hey Gang,

    Anyone had any issues riding your Altamira in the rain? I'm riding the Icicle Metric this weekend and was debating to ride the Altamira or just ride my Fuji Cross Pro...

    I have ridden my Altamira in crazy weather. Rain so hard we could not see the road at night. We could see homes on either side, so we just rode in the middle. I hated it, but my Fuji did not seem to really care.

    Ok, thanks for the input.

    I guess my concern coming off of the winter season and a fresh round of snow this week in the Wash, DC area is the corrosive road grime getting into the cable housings and other inaccessible areas.


    I think I'll play it safe and ride the cross...

    Thanks,
    Again

    I have a little over 3000 miles on my 2012 Altamira and the cables have help up really well. Considering the price I paid, I have found that the Oval and unbranded details on the bike are good quality parts

    That's Performance Bike for you. I had great service from my location, but only because of one employee who lived for cycling. Now that he's not there, it's terrible. Better to stick with my LBS anyways. I have the 2012 Altamira 2.0 LE and took my 10% to immediately upgrade the stock FSA crank to an Ultegra crank. That FSA flexed every climb and sprint I did.

    Anywho, here's my current rig:

    282871_955845416033_1025827317_n.jpg

    Fuji frame and fork, Shimano Ultegra 6700 groupset, Easton EC90 SL components (stem, bar, post, rims) and Fizik Arione CX saddle.

    Latest criterium, 15-second breakaway off the front with 7-laps to go.
