    . I bought from Tree Fort Bikes last year . they had a set of Handspun Velocity Dyad 32spoke wheels with a black Alfine dynamo front and an xt hub rear. The rims were also reflective finish. I...

    the type of rim on the wheel is irrellevant. you are torquing the rotor to the hub. so in other words, telling us you are putting them on dyad wheels doesn't really matter. on the other hand, if...

    it wouldn't be overkill it would be UNDERkill. From a structural integrity standpoint, no reason to not use bladed spokes for a 32 spoke wheel. from a weight standpoint, they are probably heavier...

    I've used dual compound in the past with fine results. IT was my thought that the salmon is a softer compound so it's grippier and wears faster but does give better braking. I consider brake pads a...

    I'm late to this party and I see that the op long ago bought his LHT and not a DT, nevertheless, for posterity and anyone who may search a thread like this here are my thoughts.

    That is a nice looking crank BUT for touring I prefer a triple for one main reason. The bigger the cogs are in the back, the more issues with shifting. A well setup system it's usually not much of...

    agreed, huge BD fan here. got my road racing bike from them. but even if someone is anti bikes direct, I'm pretty sure a stock LHT is also $1300. I would be looking to buy used and spend about 800...

    . Agreed. 23mm race tires are $60+ these daysbso $50 for this tire is a bargain to me.

    scratch that, the 10 speed deore may actually be dynasys and I'm pretty darn sure you will have some cable pull issues. the good news is that usually shimano has a pretty conservative max cog size...

    the only real issue you need to look out for if you swap your RD is the 10 speed MTB Dynasys stuff. I don't think the Deore level is dynasys thought but the slx and XT are dynasys and have a...
