    14,000 miles on my front American Classic Micro 58. Same on the rear hub. I'm a fan.

    I get that. Even my '04 is rated for 5,000.

    It's still stuck in my head - back when I used to commute 800 mi a week, I changed oil once a month ala the 3k rule. Thank God those days are over.

    You had recommended that hub back when I mentioned building my Velocity Fusion based front wheel. I did a Velocity Race hub because I had already ordered, but the micro is on my radar for next front wheel.

    So...
    On the Guru closeout Flite, it says one color/color coordinator. Does that mean you get to pick what color you want? Hypothetically, of course.

    Hypothetically, I think that's right. Sure is a good price on that frame.

    Perhaps when you call and order it, you will get a better answer.

    I am thinking the Blood Red or Orange, if I hypothetically were to think that way.

    Unfortunately, it looks solid color, and not Herbie's colorway.

    That frame, Boyd Vitesse closeout wheels, full Centaur group, Deda Zero 100 post, stem, and bars, and GP4000S'es would be about $2100. Hypothetically.

    That's a damn good price for a damn good bike. Hypothetically.

    Maybe next winter.

    Hypothetically, that frame wouldn't beat you up like some other frames.

    Hypothetically, I think they only come in red/black/white. The blue was a team order.

    In reality, that frame will be hypothetical, if All Y'All keep messing about.

    Hypothetically, it was a beautiful day for a run. Not a cloud in the sky.

    In reality, it was still below zero° F with a 15 mph breeze at decision time.

    I decided running through the snow with Benson, during her walks would do for today.

    he said he didn't feel safe anymore. He lives way out in the country and there were no MUPs. His neck hurt too much.

    we talked about a bunch of stuff, but I think he is content with being done cycling. I was just doing some diagnostics on him. He was excited to be speaking with another cyclist.
