    In my experience, Phil Wood cogs aren't worth the money. The teeth are too long and pointy (while most other cog teeth are either rounded or flat at the top), which actually snag chain links as they roll off it and cause premature chain wear and a lot of noise.

    I use EAI cogs on my Phil hub without any trouble at all.

    Any idea what size toe clips I need? I'm looking at these these with MKS GR-9's.

    I wear size 9-9.5 shoes, mainly street shoes (Vans + Nikes + Osiris)

    I'm enjoying the two day shipping. Having you in SD is better than Amazon Prime.

    Hey Scrod. How much more power/stiff do you think the Grand Cru long reach brakes would be compared to my Tektro R539'S? The black ones look amazing. If you think they're worth the upgrade (and you can get them), I'll probably pick them up.

    Thanks!

    edit: I'm pretty disappointed with my current brakes, they feel squishy.

    We're a VO dealer and can get anything as long as they have it in stock.

    I haven't used the Grand Cru brakes myself but have heard nothing but good things about them.

    I'm interesting in getting the Leader Heritage Lo

    Does the size L work for me? My measurements:

    inseam = 81cm = 32"
    trunk = 56cm = 22"
    forearm = 36cm = 14"
    arm = 60cm = 23.5"
    thigh = 70cm = 27.5"
    lower leg = 65cm = 25.5"
    sternal notch = 141cm = 55.5"
    total height = 174cm = 86.5" = 5'8.5"

    I compared it to my Dolan TC 54cm measurements and it seems to be in the same range: 55cm(dolan) vs 55.5cm(heritage) top tube. But I don't know whether that comparison works with a low profile.

    Am I good with the L?

    If your Dolan fits you well, the large Heritage Lo will suit you much better than the medium.

    Hey Scrod, is the listed ERD for the H + Son Archetype rims accurate and consistent from rim to rim or should I wait to have one in hand before ordering spokes?

    [Since I can't send private messages, I post it here]

    I would like to come down to SD tomorrow Monday, arriving around noon. Does that work for you?


    In case you have to assemble it I might save you some time (or I could even do it myself with some minor assistance).


    - will replace the handlebar with shallow road drops. was thinking about "Soma HWY ONE compact drop handlebar" in black 38cm 31.8mm
    - front brake only and cross lever on right side: "Tektro RL Series cross levers" in black


    FWIW I won't need the stock handlebar/brake levers.

    Why would it ever differ from rim to rim? They're all made to the exact same specs.

    I've read that some companies have lower QC standards resulting in a variance in the ERD from time to time. Add to that not everyone measures ERD the same way so I thought it would be worth asking before buying spokes for the build.

    H+Son is not one of those companies.

    Much to my horror, they were discontinued by KMC! I'm currently trying to hunt some down...

    Damn! That blows, I was looking forward to trying it out. I have a 710 laying around that I can use, but I'd love a Devil if you're able to locate one. Let me know!

    There is not. We prefer to keep our prices pretty low for everyone to begin with.
