Selle An-Atomica, which is definitely favored by many long distance riders: bikeforums.net/showthread.php/… and selleanatomica.com

comment Roof Rack vs. Trunk Rack for Sedan
That is a major con with a roof rack. If you search around there are MANY anecdotes of people doing this out there on the 'net. Additionally, a roof rack can make loading and unloading a two-person job, especially if the vehicle is tall (like an SUV). Some roof racks (Yakima) use a clamp which goes around the downtube. I am always nervous watching that clamp being fastened, and my bike does not have a carbon frame. Another rider I know had their wheels damaged when their bike leaned over on a roof rack in high winds.

comment How to repair sticky Ultegra shifter
If you take this bike to an LBS asking them to fix your shifter, they will almost certainly spray it full of some generic spray-lube (maybe not something that eventually gums up, like WD-40), and that's about it. The aerosol grease is probably a good follow-up. If you want to see what disassembly entails, you probably ought to look before you leap. You can get some of the flava here: bikeforums.net/showthread.php/…

People talk a lot of nonsense there but it can be very entertaining.

Within reason. You can make a lot of work for yourself if you try to use modern components with a non-modern frame. But if everything is of the same vintage, it can be done more easily, even if it is often the most expensive way to go. Have a look at the C&V forum at bikeforums.net, in particular this thread: bikeforums.net/showthread.php/…
