     I've been riding my Cannondale T400 for years now, and have about come to end-of-life, if for no other reason than the fact that so many components are badly worn that replacement of the whole system will be cheaper. Most of the miles went on this bike commuting and training, but I am planning more longer rides and tours soon.
     I'm 6'3" tall, weigh 240 lbs and I am hard on bikes since I sometimes climb standing and I tend to mash gears. Right now I am looking at the Rivendell Atlantis, the BG Rock and Road (with Bruce's upgrade for heavy riders) or an Independent Fab Independence (they also will size and stiffen for my needs.)
     I am interested in folks comments on these frame choices, and also on any components they know they would hang on a bike that's going to be used this way. I am leaning towards Phil for hubs and BB, not sure about other parts. Comments?
