    Sharp looking wheels.

    One question about the front: Those look like King Universal hubs. Shouldn't the disk adaptor be on the NDS?

    Especially if you ride in the winter months, the combo of road treatments in the PNW does a number on braking tracks. I don't think it's anything specific to everyday dirt and dust around there, but...

    My everyday road rig is 25 pounds before water and saddlebag. A lot of that is wheels: Sun CR18 rims, SON28 dyno, 32mm Pasela TG tires. They're not light, but they also hold up to quite a beating...

    Most often it's a 2009 Spesh Singlecross done up as a rando bike. PB Cascadia fenders, 32mm Paselas on CR18 rims, dyno lights, and a nice heavy B-17 Imperial saddle.

    Seattle winter roads full of sand and cinders are hell on rims.
    Now that I'm in Atlanta, I'm expecting much longer rim lifespans.

    If the pain was sharp and stabbing, and specifically centered around your bunghole, you may have a fissure. More common than you'd think, and often they'll heal on their own by not aggravating them...

    My current SS roadie is set up with a 42/17, which is about 67 inches. I find that it works well for the kind of sustained mid-grade (5 - 9%) climbing that I find out here in western Washington. ...

    1) It's super quiet because it uses a grooved urethane roller on very quiet bearings. Same roller/bearing...

    My only geared rig is my MTB, so I *always* feel super fast after a couple days of riding dirt on a 26" wheel with 2.3" tires and then switching over to 32mm 700c on my singlespeed roadie.

    I rode 32h 3-cross wheels, 2.0mm straight gauge spokes, from when I was 260 pounds down to my former race weight of 205.
