    Finally Got it...1st Road Bike

    Wanted to thank everyone on the boards who have helped me over the last week. I have found tons of information and spent many late nights searching the previous threads. After much research and test riding this is what I came up with . Got a steal of a deal on this 2006 Tarmac Comp

    I would love to take it off. Do I have to remove the cassette to take it off or can I cut it off

    Do it right. Remove the casette. All you need is a chain whip and a cassette lockring tool.
    Make sure that you understand how to adjust the derailleur and how to check that it won't shift into the spokes. Park tool has info on all that and removing the casette too.

    Nice

    bike..that's really nice, yeah, you need to remove the dork disc.

    The Aksium's are awesome too, more aero than Kysriums and pretty bombproof, the only hegative is they're kind of heavy.

    The Tarmac's are nice, I like them and have considered picking one up, but I might go custom for my next bike.....my wife has told me no more for awhile though, unless I want to sell one...and I can't do that..they're all like my kids....but I digress, nice ride brother, enjoy.

    Very nice. I've never even ridden one! Saddle looks forward a bit. Did you get carefully fitted? The more years I ride, the further back I put my saddle!

    You'll need to post a cognizant and thorough road test with your joyful impressions.

    Very nice. Enjoy.
