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

I'm sure Fabian gets his bars rewrapped after each race, so it's not a problem for him. =p

Ha....thanks. I tried to tie it all together and it really came out nice (IMPO anyway). Yeah....the 3 spoke pattern is new for 2010. Supposed to balance tension better....but if a wheel is trued correctly it really shouldn't matter. But then again, I don't build wheels for a living. I just ride them for fun. I've been very happy with AC wheels. Running 26 Discs on my MTB with the same color scheme and haven't a single problem. Reasonable weight, reasonable price, great looks, great performance! Oh....and they are painted. Sounds stupid, but I find it is really funny you can drop $1200 on a set of wheels and they can't even take the time to paint the logos onto the rim. Don't get me wrong, I've got some great wheels with stickers, but come one, just paint them for crying out loud.
