I've got a few family bikes now, all vintage Miyatas. I usually take precedence on upgrades so I'm ordering new wheels and rolling my parts downhill to the other bikes.
I'm placing the order through Riv Bikes (built by Rich Lesnik) and will hopefully get that in immediately so it's ready for pickup over Thanksgiving. I'm going with 700c Velocity Syn 32s with a dyno hub up front. I've got a loooong night commute now, so the investment makes sense. But I can't make up my mind for the rear. This would be my first deviance from freewheels unless I go Phil, and I can't go there. I'd rather stick with a 7-speed cassette but I don't know if they offer a hub with that build. 130mm works without coldsetting, I've squeezed one on already. 36 spoke. Thoughts? I'm light-touring on the 1000, should I just suck it up and migrate over to 8/9-speed? Don't seem to miss the gears so far.
And, I'm changing out the headset on our 1200, figured I'd do the same on the 1000. I'm torn between the VO Alloy 41mm stack and the Tange Levine 33mm. Which is correct? I'm not clear on the math for this.
