Here are some pics of my bikey. I couldn't get a Red derailleur when I got my shifters, so I went with Force. I didn't have the jack for calipers, so I kept the Rival. Now I have a quilt. It rides nicely though.
Yes. They are much nicer for the rear, but I don't like the trim on the top as much as I do on the bottom as Rival and Force have. I don't get why they didn't do it in the middle. The rear is very definitive in it's shifting. The throw is better on the front though.
The reach adjustment is cool as hell, but dialed all the way out is perfect for me, so it doesn't matter to me. It's a cool feature though. I really like the feel of the shift paddles on these though. Super nice.
Nope. It's weird. We have central heat, but no central air. That is the new unit that replaced the one that leaked into the wall, creating mold, and making me redo the wall. The trim in the window needs to be painted and put into another window this spring.
The basket has 8 year old picnic stuff from a wedding gift that we have never used. Perhaps someday we'll take Caroline.
I don't know how much I love some of the offerings, but I, along with the other people I sold Speciale Carbons to, like this frame a lot. I sold an 04, which was actually built in Italy. It's really pretty nice. It was cheap too. I am waiting on a 3VC frameset to warranty an alloy blend frame, so that'll be my first experience with their carbon frames, but I am interested in seeing them.
And no, I suspect Haro road bikes would have gone much like Redline road bikes are going.
