thriller: that's the jam.
full carbon clinchers scare me a bit, especially if they ever see the street.
this. i might mention for those who don't know that mihlbach has been riding on such a wheel build for some time— alloy nipples up front as well, if i recall.
for weight concerns there's really no...
it's a nice concept for something different in the modern HF track hubset game, but i agree about the rims. i like the rear minus the white finish, probably i'd prefer a lighter, cutout LF road-style...
short of buying used, the omnium is one of the best values in a 144bcd track crank.
most folks who frequently change bars have a stem for each: deep drop quill on track drops, and a parallel/road quill on road drops, horns, or risers. you often want different extensions anyway, and...
eai steel deluxe is what i've settled on. good profile, long wearing, wide range of sizes. they're not drilled or lightened in the larger sizes, but that's a minor quibble honestly.
for what it's...
i'll probably grab some cadence or exustars when my kashimax doubles wear out… which might be a while.
aif: get some chainring bolts pronto, son (daughter?).
you might try the old stronglight (maybe specialties TA?) sealed needle bearing type, or the early ultegra cartridge ones. as i recall they were both pretty short.
My measurement is 26mm upper and 12mm lower.
if you're replacing a track fork, or a tight steel fork, the wound up has the shortest axle-to-crown measurement of all the carbons i've seen. most carbon forks, particularly monocoque, tack on 10mm...
salmon or salmon/black. personally i preferred the plain salmons.
that bridgestone has a nice tubeset but inexplicably a strange build. odd fork crown too— i seem to recall BS/anchor using a different one in the past.
I've felt the Easton, Alpha-Q, and Reynolds full-carbons are really well made from experience with them in the shop. Easton's SL and SLX forks ("superlight") aren't as burly as their regular ones—...
I like Continentals (specifically the new GP4000), and usually buy them from retailers in the UK when the USD/GBP rate is favorable.
on the vantuyl— you swap your omniums out when you take it to the track? or is that an old build?
currently riding 28c gatorskin on the rear, and a 23c conti gp4000 black chili up front. currently my favourite front tire, after riding a few others.
i liked the rubino pro slick but the sidewall...
^ it's definitely not, but the earflap liner is nice and warm in the winter.
just patch them with another piece of denim and use your zigzag stitch to lock everything together. remember to roll up next time.
arguably the logical inverse of having a 100k car with hubcaps…
i'm all over that pursuit, but honestly i think the wheelset, frame design, and general scheme are blinding me from the look stem and other details (why fillet braze and then not blend the track ends...
braze most likely.
i'd like those rims much more if i didn't know how much they weighed. and i'm not usually a weight weenie.
am i the only one who thinks deda pistas look awkward in an integrated setup?
Hatta R9400 with fully loose bearings. 109mm spindle, mirror races. I've got a spare 75 BB in case this one grenades, but so far it's silent unless i'm mashing. reminds me to spin smoothly.
