Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

ViperZ, how does the braking surface hold up on those Hardox rims? Wear through them yet?

I've come to own a similar pair of aero Omegas, though tubulars, that I'm thinking of getting laced up. I've never used a hard-anodized breaking surface before. I've always used machined Mavics.

I must revive this thread so that all can remember how to properly taunt us with a bike build thread.

Yesterday (before it was revived) I re-read most of this thread just for the pleasure of it!

Avocet in the early 90's? heck yes
back then there weren't 15 different brands to choose from

Avocet or Cateye for the most part



Charlie Mottet, Tour de France 1993


Phil Anderson, Tour de France 1992
