    Thanks for that link, Dan - but I couldn't find any tension specs for the A119 rims - only a maximum load (105kg). Courtesy of the username and password revealed in that link, I went to the site...

    It surprised me that I had so much trouble finding a chart showing recommended tension ranges for anything, let alone a specific brand. You'd think this would be readily available.

    Thanks, guys.


    After I posted the question, I realized that I could just take the wheel to my LBS and have 'em put a tensionometer on it. If it is too loose, I'll put an additional turn on each...

    Consequences of low spoke tension?

    I'm working on building my second set of road bike wheels. Tonight I trued up the rear wheel (36-spoke cross-3 lacing) and got it stress-relieved and trued both radiallly and axially to within less...

    I had ambitions to do a century last year and never got to it. This year I've done two metrics, and both times I asked myself "Do another 35-38 miles....right NOW?" and both times I said uh-uh. I've...

    I've been screwing around with cycling videos since last year. I recorded a bunch last season but discovered that I'm always tilting my head to the right, so helmet mounting didn't work. I thought I...

    I too am a fan of bibs - even when I was at my thinnest (about 10 lbs less than I am now) regular shorts tended to roll at the waist. No problems with the bibs. They're stretchy enough to "pump...
