Velocity stuff is ready to roll and we're feeling saucy so we're having a spontaneous little sale:

Cool. Missouri is similar to Massachusetts because you can't do much when it's 5 degrees and snowing harder than a ******.

I need a new cog... The new wheelset I got had a 14t Dura Ace Cog+lockring, I'm currently rolling an all-city 17t, Kind of want to sell the 14t for a 16t or 15t

Somewhere down the road, we'll have tires. Velocity stuff is taking up so much room at the moment, I can't even begin to think of where we'd fit anything else.

A23 vs Aeroheads, can you break it down for me Scrod? Seems like A23 is almost identical except it's wider and 1gram more heavy lol.

When paired with a 23c tire, the wider rim creates a consistent tire profile rather than pinching the beads into the rim. The overall ride quality is improved and the result is tubular-like ride quality from a standard clincher tire.
Just as H+Son says about their TB-14 rim:

Did we accidentally put signature confirmation on your last package? I usually never do that because I can't stand those 'delivery attempt' notices either.

FedEx really isn't any better. We'd been waiting on a shipment of KinLins for over a week now and instead of delivering the actual package, the ****ing driver would leave notes saying he couldn't make the delivery because no one was here (even though we're here every single day when he comes through the neighborhood and was just too lazy to ring our buzzer). This happened three times until finally today, I ran down to meet him at the door and he presents a box that looks like it fell off several bridges full of damaged rims and I refused the shipment. Thanks FedEx!

yeah I just needed to vent about USPS because they suck donkey balls if you don't own your own house. fed ex has ****ed me over before too in a similar fashion, I was sitting by the door nearly all day on my laptop to catch the dude then when I checked and saw the 'we missed you' notice I nearly went postal on them. a wheelset that came from fed ex was also in a box that was beat to **** and lightly scratched.

Do it, calv!

In other news, some relatively inexpensive compact drops may be coming our way (unbranded but made by a company we can't disclose).
