Wilier la Triestina with Shimano 105 ($1699) - or an Izoard with Ultegra at $2599 if I sell my pancreas, apparently I don't need it.I've spoken to folks at JT and Trak and they were both very helpful though I did not realise when I started how much there is to learn.

Hi Scott,

Welcome to Adelaide Cyclists. You might be interested in joining AC group Commuters and, if you cycle in the city, Adelaide BUG.

A current discussion on Adelaide BUG of What cycling facilities would you like at http://www.adelaidecyclists.com/group/adelaidebug/forum/topics/what-cycling-facilites-would-you-like

I coordinate four AC groups with emphasis on improving cycling conditions: Adelaide BUG, Prospect BUG, Look For Cyclists and Vote For Cyclists. There is more info in the introduction on each group web page.

Cheers, Heather
