    I was on the Motobecane, 15 miles from home returning from a solo century, and fell in behind a rider on CF pulling a kiddie trailer. I happened to pass him but he caught me at a stop sign a few...

    Same commute, different bike. Lovely weather even with the slight headwind this morning.

    Just my commute again, again, and again. Today I went very C&V-ish. Same commute, different bike.

    I have a copy and have read it several times. As I recall, his strongest point on this subject is that the tire has so much more compliance than the spokes of the wheel that the wheel was...

    IN name, yes. but I've seen labels saying "white IPA", "brown IPA", "amber IPA", etc. The meaning of the "P" seems to have gotten lost. The "I" part however is quite significant, and the term "IPA"...

    Good to know. After the most recent cut in a Vittoria on the Motobecane I ordered a pair of Veloflex Criteriums for it. IIRC (and I may be mistaking the various models) I looked at the Record...

    I have to agree but this is a half-full/half-empty argument. My Veloflex-shod bikes, both clincher and sew-up, have light rims strung with 32 2.0/1.7/2.0mm swaged (a.k.a. double-butted) spokes. To...

    Oops. My bad. I meant to say they were NOT prone to flats. I've been running Veloflex Masters on the Torelli rims, first on the Masi now on the Gazelle, and Veloflex Criteriums (sew-ups) now on...

    An ever so slightly smoother ride with 4x is possible because the spokes are longer.

    However a high-flange hub is deceptive. At first glance it appears as if it should to provide wider lateral...

    I'm running Veloflex Master 23s on my Gazelle mounted on Torelli Master rims. The ride is tubular-like. Hard to mount, probably due to the rim. A tire jack makes it easy. They have NOT been prone...

    It's really hard to judge the visuals without crank, tires, etc. But that bike should have low flange hubs. High gives more shiny silver surface to gleam in the sunlight, but that isn't right for...

    Top, we got a note from Alex that he want to come to the ride too. And of course he'll be on the Shogun. :thumb:

    I'm not sure which Jim you might be speaking too. Mhy UO-8 is indeed white (as were many) and though it looks nice it sure isn't showroom-like. Too many years and miles add up.
