    I could do without the scolding and lectures I get for not wearing a helmet. Anyone who does that, please stop. Other than that, it's rare for another cyclist to annoy me on the road.

    Yes, XT hubs. I also went with 36 spokes, up from the 32 spoke stock wheels. How's your wheelset working for you?

    Long awaited wheel upgrade for my Cross Check came today (replacing a 7-year-old stock wheelset). I'm even excited about my new chain and lube. How big of a geek can I be?
