Yes, thanks for the tip. They're pricey but they did good work.
Thanks from youngR

Thanks TR. I really have no idea what the material is. C&C just calls it "Black Vinyl Asphalt". The bike feels great with the seat lowered and the gel added. I mentioned this in another thread, but it doubled the mileage that I can comfortably ride in a day. Even helped some with the heat. The grip is definitely there as well.



Yes. I didn't think that I would see a big difference since I was coming off S wheels, but it was immediately noticeable. At first I thought I might've made a mistake. It made the front end feel a bit twitchy, especially on high speed turns. What I learned was that it was magnifying my flaws. I was putting too much weight/input on the bars. When I ride the bike properly, they perform great.
Beside being more conscious of your riding to resolve the twitchiness, can some of that be recitified by adjusting the suspension for the lighter carbon wheels?

Yes, I had to go back to my local suspension guru and have the fixed settings redone. That helped, but I was the biggest problem. Adjusting the steering stabilizer also helped. Believe it or not I wasn't crazy about the wheels at first, but it's pretty cool that they're making me more conscious of my riding style and a therefore a better rider. That's a hidden plus that I wasn't aware of when I bought them. I could only imagine the difference on a base model.

I had a few custom made at a local graphics company.

haha. Very nicely done.

One time, I had a local dealer doing some service to my SF and tech guy was like "man, you should've told me about reverse shift (GP shift), I thought something was wrong with your gears and keep stalling..."

I'm like you are a retard....

I should have a sticker like that retards like Ducati mechanics...
Thanks from Twistedracer

They're required on the tracks down here. I assumed that was the case everywhere.
