    Maybe I'm selling myself short. I charge $10-15 to true and tension, $25 to build one wheel and $45 for a pair. Peter White charges $35 per wheel.

    You might want to contact the racing teams near you which have a history of supporting junior members, such as Major Motion, Velo Allegro, Velo Avanti, Lightning Velo, and Canyon Velo.

    There could be a variance in tire diameter. The only way to accurately compare is with elapsed time on the exact same route, with no red lights or other variable stops.

    Even that makes me lucky to get a ride in every Sat. Every ride feels like that painful first ride back after a long break.

    I tried it on my back and shoulders. It only took about 3/4 of the hair off and the burning stayed with me for 3 days.

    I recall seeing a video recently on mind controlled shifting. Not sure about braking, though, but braking only slows you down anyway. Anybody who's shaving that much weight doesn't want to slow down.

    Jumping in with the crazy suggestions, we all know that cyclists don't need arms. Have them amputated and then remove the stem and bars. Now you shaved weight off both the rider and the bike!

    As someone mentioned earlier, at least a couple inches past the top tube.



    True, but that's a safe estimate by seatposts, while the frame also factors in there. Also, if you were to cut the...

    I'm surprised they would even try to blame it on that. Unless the manufacturer specifies a maximum seatpost insertion, it should be able to handle the tiny impacts caused by this.

    Exactly, and it works with all materials. With metal, it's called butted tubing. I'm not sure if they call it that on carbon tubes.

    If you really want, you can get some 14mm nipples for the places where 233.5 are needed, but I'd just try to get the right length spokes in the first place.

    If the inner diameter is consistent, then yes, but that's not the case most of the time. That means there is a small gap between the seatpost and the seat tube. If anything, a long seatpost rocks...

    Many modern tube sets have thinner walls once you get past the joints, so as suggested previously, anything past a couple inches below the top tube is unnecessary.
