The 135mm F/2 Defocus lens is a hard animal to tame. It does take great pictures, but focus is a struggle. I’ve found that it’s best to operate this lens manually, as the autofocus is slow and unprecise. However, it does lead some great photos, like this one of my compact SRAM Red crank.
Ever since I started road biking again last year, I’ve wanted a pair of Fulcrum Racing 0s. I don’t know what it exactly was. It was probably because I had never seen red Fulcrums before, and in my mind, they would look stunning with a matte black frame. For 2010, the rims changed colors. The initial appeal for these hoops is the look. Hoops that are completely red are rare. This is the start of a long term review on these wheels.
At Asterisk*Cycles, we’ve got access to not only great bikes from Giant to Pinarello, but also great components, from Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo. This includes full gruppos, from Campy Super Record 11 to Shimano Dura Ace Di2.
It is my opinion that to save money, the best thing is to actually purchase bikes or components that are worth more than $3,000 USD. That’s when the real savings start, but modest savings can be had starting from $1,000 USD.
Complete bikes and components, such as gruppos, wheelsets and frames are available, from Pinarello, Giant, Colnago, TIME, Scott, Specialized, Wilier, Orbea, Kuota, and DeRosa. Components from Mavic, Zipp, Lightweight, Campagnolo, Shimano and SRAM are available, as well as seats, stems, and handlebars from FSA, MOst, and other companies.
Currently, there are some major discounts to be had on the 2010 Pinarello Dogma 60.1, the 2010 TCR Advanced SL product line from Giant, the 2010 Anthem X Advanced SL 0 from Giant as well as the 2010 Trance X Advanced SL 0 from Giant.

I went to check up on some prices on Christmas Day and on NYE. It wasn’t really planned out that way, but I had some spare time so I decided to visit a few dealers. It turns out that it was a good thing that I did because I spotted some killer deals on the new 2010 Pinarello Dogma equipped with either SRAM Red, Campagnolo Super Record 11, Dura-Ace 7900, or Di2.
[Update: I’ve contacted my suppliers and now have access to Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 and Di2, Campagnolo Bora wheels, and other goodies. Visit Asterisk*Cycles]
After yesterday’s ride, I wanted to go out and do about 100 km, but I got started too late and didn’t want to exhaust myself as I plan on going out again tomorrow. Monday won’t be a rest day. I felt pretty good and started to pace myself, even though I rode the first 25 km in 34:40.
