It looks like a super facility - when I was visiting him in Dallas last, we stopped by there so he could show me the place. I like going there just to go to Richardson Bike Mart - the ultimate toy...

Yup, that's the helmet. The reason they did not sell in the USA prior to this year was the very reason you mention, but it was USA legal when they commenced selling them. They might have run into...

Does anyone know is there is a specific rule that prohibits the use of large carbon spoked wheels such as the HED3 in USAC sanctioned road races and criteriums? Thanks.

On a Dura-ace 7800 derailleur, is the L adjustment screw the inner or outer screw?

I note that the screws are not marked L and H. Which is which and is the 7900 the same? Thanks.
