    Great year! Good job, (51)!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Wow that's fantastic. Only 1 spoke popped, you had much better wheels starting out than I did, that's for sure.

    Congrats! At least you didn't have to add the "wrecked a nice Cannondale on a demo ride" to that list like I would

    I'm not sure. These were the stock Bontrager Select wheels that came with the Trek. What was your Trek equipped with?

    Plus all of my miles are road miles, you may be out stump-jumpin' or something.
