A new rear hub is next for me.

My trusty mechanic Brian at my LBS- Pleasant Hill Cyclery is psychic.

3 days before the Foxy's century he told me my rear hub was getting on a bit and showing some wear but that he was sure it would get me through.

I guess I tore that thing up over the 108 I rode that day! I weigh 185 and ripping along at 20+ for most of the day was just too much for it. The great part is it gave me no problems on the century.

Then yesterday on a 15 mile recovery spin it stared to feel and sound just like a pepper mill.

Talk about good timing.

hey, I have one of these also. Same color and stickers, everything

a thick layer of dust and cob webs.

Wheel building is fun. If you happen to get a Tensiometer, let me know if I can borrow it

Thinking about getting the 2009 Cannondale RT2 tandem. Seems like a great deal and ride. Just have to patiently wait till at least end of the year before the bike hits the shops.

It would still be on my list if I could justify $15,000 for a bike. The one I have is an older generation and goes for about a tenth of that amount. I still love it, though....

yeah, a little dusty but can easily clean. I guess better than rust. It has full 7-speed
Dura Ace components, rideable but never take it out.

Next purchase should be to finish a full c record or super record group from the
late '80s for this rebuild. I have a few parts from each and was looking
at ebay.

Pete,

That single speed you are lusting after is too subtle. Try this one
