    The pic hamfoh posted is an accurate example.

    Angie has pretty long legs and arms for her height. She's like a little spider monkey.

    I have a quick question on the spoke length. So I'm planning to get a Formula Rear hub 32h (http://www.amazon.com/Origin8-Formul...262111&sr=1-12) with a Deep V. I'm probably going to let my LBS build it for me but I want to buy the parts instead of buying a prebuilt wheel. What spoke length would I need for this? I have the calculator out in front of me but I don't have some of the measurements.

    You'll need the actual measurements before you can do anything else. I'm sure the hub measurements are listed somewhere on Formula's website.

    I was supposed to leave the sellers note on paypal right? I can't remember if there was a place to leave a message on the actual RG site.

    Done. Surprisingly for whatever reason, I didn't check it this morning until a few hours ago.

    So I'm looking at picking up the 1" straightblade steel fork. But the crown race is JIS 27.0. I would like to pick up the Tange Levin CDS, but it has a 26.4 crownrace. Any chance you guys stock Tange Levin CDS in 27.0?

    Out of stock at the moment. 26.4 is actually more common and any bike shop will be able to mill the fork to accept an ISO crown race.

    um... I was looking to try and get the hubs and either A23 or kinlin xr 270 rims for <$250
    And this is gonna be a slightly WW wheelset for my nice roadie, i was thinking 24 front and 28 rear? I think I weigh somewhere around 180 pounds.

    Everything we can get in low spoke counts definitely won't keep your wheels costing less that $250.

    Mkay. Cuz there is a site selling 277 gram hubsets for 110. Wanted to check with you first. The site is pretty reputable from the road forum.

    Scrod,

    I'm looking to get a new seat post. I was originally considering the Thomson straight post, but I realized that I have my seat set as far back as possible currently (my current seat post has some setback), so the standard Thomson Elite won't work. Naturally, I was considering the 10 setback Thomson post, but I'm not a fan of how it looks with the bend in it, which leaves me looking at the Deda RS01 or the FSA SL-250. How does the amount of setback compare between the setback Thomson, Deda, and FSA posts?

    Even the Thomson 10 has less setback than a traditional seatpost. On the other side of things, the Deda RS-01 has 30mm of setback - similar to the Velo Orange Grand Cru (which is considered a 'long setback' post).

    The FSA post has a little less setback and is nice too but the clamp is kind of a pain. Go for the Deda.

    None. I called it off because too many people were dragging their feet/being indecisive.

    We didn't sell too many of them so we may hold off for a little while. The "suede" is actually a suede-like fabric. No idea how durable it is.
