    why 43? isn't 45 the most common rake?

    Don't know. I suspect I could use a 45mm without problem. Or not. According to what I've read in the 41.

    ...just make certain that your QR skewer springs are a matched pair and you ought to be good.

    An extra 2mm of rake might be perceptible in a side by side test, but you might actually like the handling more with the extra 2mm.

    If you think deeply and carefully about this (as I know you will), every time you change your tire height on the front
    you are changing the overall diameter of the wheel/tire unit just a tad, and thus changing your rake to ground contact
    (trail) just a little bit. Most people (myself included) don't seem to notice it.

    The really adventurous among us go back and forth between 27" wheels and 700c's. #badboybikers

    ... dried, powdered ginger is also very good as an anti-inflammatory.

    I had a ginger juice at the Ethiopian restaurant the other night. I dunno if it de-inflamed me at all but it sure was good!

    Mr. @rjones28, I have Cinelli Vai stem and bars in 26.0 loose and available that you are welcome to check out. I do not think that you will like them, and if you want to see before buying, it might save you some headache. The two bolt face plate, at least in 26.0, does not hold for ****. I used friction paste, and proper torque, over torque, every torque, and the bar will slip. They also feel cheap. Cheap wine and cheap womenz is fine, buts you wants you some fine stem and bars.

    I have an old Bell V1 Pro helmet circa 1986 lying around somewhere. If I can dig it up will try to post.
