    I have seen wood clincher rims, but they are modern replicas. They have a carbon fiber inner (with a hook) and a wood laminate outer. The rims end up being a bit wide, and the ones I saw could...

    Here is how I have done it in the past.

    Use a chain whip, but make sure the last part is a pair of outer plates. Slip the plates over the drive side flange at a psoke hole, and put a nail through...

    For a short climb, I like Alta Vista in Laguna Beach. It varies from easy to really steep, is narrow and winds all over the place.

    979->1979

    Tubulars are great for gravel, but there are two main considerations.

    First, use only high quality tubulars. I regularly race on Vitoria CX and the top end tubular by Kenda. There is one Norcal...
