    Rod, congratulations on the beautiful build. Did you have the S&S retrofitted to the LHT? If retrofitted, who did it (and if not too crass, about how much?)

    Thx

    I agree with you on this, but I must have ridden for 800 miles with the tube under the rim? The bead looks OK, but I've had trouble with Schwalbe beads in the past.

    Thx!

    Hey Folks,

    I got the "Make a Team" email this week and did so.
