This would be going on a aluminium frame. I do find the ride to be harsh over poor pavement so I'm hoping a carbon seatpost may improve the ride quality.

comment How long should a well maintained chain last and what can I do to prolong its life?
I'd think of it as something like a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner - it cleans and conditions at the same time. It may not be ideal, but it's good enough for many.

Ah, I didn't consider the sweep too. So there are several factors to consider: width, rise and sweep.

Thanks for the add-on suggestion! Aero bars look like a nice way to get into a more aero position for the long straights without too much effort.

I find that I switch my hand positions every couple of minutes or so - especially when I come to a stop at a traffic light. I use padded gloves from MEC - which are fantastic for the price BTW.
